The Funniest Cities in the United States as Ranked by the Humor Research Lab at University of Colorado

Funniest CitiesWhile researching his new book, University of Colorado professor Dr. Peter McGraw enlisted fellow Humor Research Lab team members to create the Humor Algorithm (HA) in attempt to find the funniest city in the US. Research included interviews with more than 900 residents in the country’s ten largest cities, as well as online data collection.

Over a nine-month period, the team collected extensive data for the project. First, they mined the Internet and the comedy industry for a variety of objective measures:

  • Frequency of visits to Cheezburger comedy websites, such as Lolcats and FAIL Blog
  • Number of comedy clubs per square mile in each city
  • Traveling comedians’ ratings of each city’s comedy-club audiences
  • Number of famous comedians born in each city, divided by city population
  • Number of famous funny tweeters living in each city, divided by city population
  • Number of comedy radio stations available in each city
  • Frequency of humor-related web searches originating in each city

    What tier is the University of Texas Pan American considered? Would a finance degree be useful from this university?

    • I'm pretty sure UT-Pan American is either tier 3 at best, or not ranked. A finance degree from there would probably make it much more difficult to get a job on Wall St or a huge financial firm compared to UT-Austin or another top finance school, but I'm a firm believer that you get out of your education what you put into it, so if you go to UT-Pan American and get great grades, learn as much as you can, and network like crazy, I see no reason why you couldn't be extremely successful with a finance degree from UT-Pan American or anywhere else.
