You someone who appreciates literary structure and craft? Looking for a different way to teach such things? This phenomenal visual analysis of Ali Wong’s comedy show does that. It’s a smart, accessible, and data-driven analysis of how Wong weaves her entire set to achieve a “meta funny” moment when the audience laughs the longest near the end. (Teacher friends: The content of Wong’s comedy can be explicit to say the least, so watch the whole visual essay before assigning.)
