What happens when you deny stand-up comedians the benefit of laughter?
Ian Abramson, host of 7 Minutes in Purgatory, finds out when he puts comics alone in the back of a truck to do their act while the audience watches from a different room. Comedians are told to read the room. If their joke isn’t going well end it quick and move on. With this set up the comedians don’t know if the audience find them hilarious or are performing to a silent room.
Comedy Central have brought this series to Youtube for us to enjoy and it’s brilliant.
