Mathematical Comedy

The Second City is comedy venue started in 1959 in Chicago. They now have branches in Toronto and LA. They have fostered the early careers of a lot of comedians (Bill Murray, the Belushi's, John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers...). Sourcebooks MediaFusion released a retrospective of all the great talent that came through SC. I haven't actually read the book, but it is accompanied by two Cd's that I absolutely love. They're filled with some of the best SC sketches. Here are a couple that tickled my mathematical funny bone.

(Warning: the comedy is a little rough. If you are sensitive or a younger reader, it is best to leave this post alone. There aren't any of the holy, holy swear words, but a few minor peccadilloes, and a lot of unpolitically correct humor. Remember, if you can't take a joke, don't.)

Ever feel like you belong to the null set? (Don't think too hard about that.)

And this is a doctors appointment on stats.
