What was the point where these stopped being normal?

Weird how old comedy stuff seems so much shitter now because it has a laughter track even though it was the norm back then.

The Office…

you could hire yourself out as a live laugh track. Always funnier watching stuff with someone else who’s laughing


#4

Just audible ^thises


#5

You’d need one of those contagious laughs though, would be shit if it was Jimmy Carr or something with you


#6

Usually an audience isn’t it? Not canned laughter and canned laughter is what I assume you mean by laughter track.


#7

Seems incredibly out of place in I’m Alan Partridge


#8

Canned or live I don’t give ashit


#9

I don’t like it when people are critical of laughter in TV shows that are literally filmed in front of a laughing audience. I also think there is a real talent in dealing with that laughter in comedic performances.

If memory serves the League of Gentlemen dropped the laugh track for the third series. A load of people then complained it was too dark and stopped watching.

That’s very nice of you to say Tone, I like you too.

I would also like to point out that I also like balonz & stickboy.


#18

I like Balonz and Stickboy as well

See when things that normally have a studio audience go outside but there’s still laughter? What’s going on there, just the video being played to a studio audience?

I like that Monty Python sketch about “now we’re on film” when they go to external shots and “now we’re on video” for internal stuff.
