Do You Live in the Funniest City in the US? You Might Be Surprised!


A University of Colorado professor and author of The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny, Dr. Peter McGraw, partnered with the Humor Research Lab to create the Humor Algorithm in order to compile rankings to discover the funniest cities across the U.S.

"Over a nine-month period, the team collected extensive data for the project," the study states. "First, they mined the Internet and the comedy industry for a variety of objective measures."

Dr. McGraw and the Humor Research Lab's study is considered "the most comprehensive analysis of humorous cities ever attempted."

The results? guys take the #1 spot! And while Chicago proves to be the funniest city, most cities in Texas ranked at the bottom of the list.
