Noël Carroll Discusses Jokes on The Owl Podcast

Distinguished Professor Noël Carroll is the featured guest philosopher on Episode 8 of The Owl, a podcast produced by Brooklyn Public Philosophers (founded by CUNY Philosophy PhD student Ian Olasov).

Carroll, author of Humour: A Very Short Introduction, summarizes and critiques some of the leading theories of humor, offering plenty of jokes as examples. He recently gave the keynote address at the conference on Ethics and Aesthetics of Stand-Up Comedy at Bucknell University in April 2017; a photo from the event appears on the cover of ASAGE (The American Society for Aesthetics’ Graduate E-Journal) below.
