Dr. Raj Sivaraman Explains Comedy

Have you ever watched a comedy show and wondered "That is hilarious, but I don't know why?" Well, then Raj Sivaraman is here to explain! Raj Sivaraman earned a Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky studying Biomolecular Sciences, and has spent the last three years studying the junction of linguistics, heuristics, statistics, semantics, and ascetics that lead to the complicated mathematical algorithm we call COMEDY! Raj's multimedia seminar explains in everyday terms the past, present, and future directions comedy is going and how we as "humans" can use this information to improve our lives. You'll be sure to learn a lot about comedy, science, and maybe, just a little bit about yourself.
