They perfected the robot comedian years ago.  It's called Steven Wright.

Okay, now that I actually RTFA, I'm giving the researchers a golf clap for coming up with a fun and creative way to do serious cognitive science stuff.

Watch out writers for shows like Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, someone has figured out how to replace your jobs with a tiny shell script.

wildcardjack: Dan Cook performs before a live laugh track.

CSB: Way back in the late 90s I was doing amateur stand-up shows in the Boston area. There was this one tiny crappy club that gave you 5 minutes of stage time on Sunday nights if you brought two paying customer in for the show. Dane Cook got his start there as an amateur. He wasn't very friendly with other comedians in the green room back stage, and he'd never stick around to have a beer after the shows. So he had a reputation of being a bit of a jerk. But everyone wanted to go on after him in the line up because even though his material was mediocre, he could whip the audience's energy levels up very quickly. He was animated, loud, and for whatever reason it worked.
