One of my pet hates is the canned laughter that accompanies so many TV and Radio shows now. I find it intensely irritating and insulting – implying, as it does, that I am so incapable of recognising humour that the producers need to use fake laughter to signpost where the funny parts are
It’s a form of cheating also – designed to artificially enhance an artist’s performance. Much like auto-tuning can make a singer seem better than they actually are, canned laughter can make a comedian seem funnier than they are actually are.
Like I said, fake laughter really, really irritates me. So if this lot woke me up every morning I’d be as annoyed as these residents of Mumbai who are seeking a Court Order to shut the f*ckers up !
