ChatGPT Outperforms Humans in Comedy Writing, Study Finds

In a study from USC, ChatGPT 3.5 outperformed humans in creating comedy. Drew Gorenz and Norbert Schwarz pitted the AI against people in comedy tasks. ChatGPT's jokes received higher scores, with 69.5% finding them funnier.

The AI's success challenges the idea that humor requires human emotion. It suggests that machines can replicate the essence of comedy—timing, originality, and wit. This raises concerns for comedy writers, as AI could potentially rival their craft.
