The IVY Podcast

Jul 5, 2018

Ken Jennings, the longest-running Jeopardy Champion and bestselling author, joins an IVY Ideas Night as he traces the evolution of humor and what it means to be funny now. In this talk Jennings argues that throughout human history, characteristics like strength and education were hallmarks of success, whereas now, using humor gets you a lot further than productivity and innovation. Now that our society expects everything from safety videos to news headlines and presidential campaigns to be funny, Jennings offers members with insights into what we can expect from here.
