MAN BROUGHT UP ENTIRELY ON AMERICAN SITCOMS “SHOCKED” TO FIND REAL LIFE DOESN’T COME WITH A LAUGH TRACK

Joshua Greene, who was brought up watching only American sitcoms, has confessed that he finds real life “silent as a grave” without the laugh track he had expected to find.

Mr Greene, 19, is in the opening months of his first year of university in Southampton. After having being brought up entirely on American sitcoms, he was shocked to discover that when he told a joke it was not followed by a peal of laughter from the sky.

“I made a snappy comeback to something a flatmate said” complained Joshua Greene “and wasn’t rewarded with an ‘oooooooohhhhh’, or even a clap. I’m disheartened with life as a whole, really.”

Greene confessed that he considers real life “dull, uninteresting, and soul-destroying” without a laugh track. “How am I supposed to know when to laugh at jokes if there’s not a crowd of people giving me hints? Socialising with real-life people is hard, too hard.”
