Robert Mankoff: Anatomy of a New Yorker Cartoon

Robert Mankoff is a cartoonist, author, and the current cartoon editor for The New Yorker Magazine, where he’s worked for over 20 years. In this illuminating video for TED Talks, Bob discusses why, out of the 1,000+ cartoons the magazine receives each week, the 17 they select are published.
A self-proclaimed “humor analyst,” Bob dissects why we react to certain situations, what is funny, and what just doesn’t work. A great presentation filled with insight on the human condition.
