Feature film story editor Kate Leys hosts an entertaining discussion with established comedy writers and neuroscience researchers on the science behind laughter: how we laugh, why we laugh and what laughing does for us. Join our exploration of all things funny to look at, both the artistic and rational reasoning behind comedy ideas, how humour really affects us, and what it is that makes us giggle.
