    What's Canned Laughter?


    Corbis.com

    In a normal production of canned laughter, comedians stimulate audiences at studio lots and the audience learns how to laugh repeatedly at the same jokes and gags. The actors run the scenes till the satisfaction of the director and producers then the laugh track is skimmed from the visuals and farmed out to the canning facilities. The laughs are manipulated, categorised into the different types of humour, canned and sent back to the studios to be reinserted back into the shows.
