As loyal readers know by now, I'm a huge fan of Karaoke and other forms of "participatory entertainment." Well, now Wired News reports on a new twist on this formula called Joke-e-oke that's basically karaoke with stand-up comedy material.
Many dream of the chance to be a comedian with killer material in front of a laughing crowd. With Joke-e-oke, people are able to live out their comedy fantasy of being their favorite comedian onstage, choosing from a list of stand-up comedy icons to perform. A built in laugh track is added, timed perfectly to accent punch lines.
