Heres a random bit of info.

Most of the laugh tracks we're recorded back when the idea was first thought of in the early 1950's. Most of those tracks are still used as laughter is laughter.

Most of those people originally recorded back in the 50's are dead.

The dead are laughing at us.

Now that's a macabre thought. I'll still be laughing at Bernie Mac and Rodney Dangerfield reruns. Some things are timeless.

I dunno, since most of the time I'm laughing with the lagh tracks, I'd say they are laughing with us.
Every Halloween I listen to tracks by my favorite dead artists.
Then you have movies around Christams or other holidays with actors who've long since expired.
It's a bit creepy, and a bit amazing to me. Listening to voices who have been silent, seeing people who have been dead, it's amazing in a lot of ways .

I'm sure i sound like a complete idiot but, could someone explain to me what exactly is a laugh track? Would that be the laughing played during a sitcom?

That is exactly what it is. Canned laughter. Used by countless sitcoms. I've never thought very much of it. But pretty much block it out now. reply to post by screamo

You know, it'd be interesting if somebody put together in a video a bunch of sitcoms that use the same laugh tracks to see how many times the same laugh track is used.

I really don't have anything to add to this thread.

When I came across it there had been 666 views. I'm not at all superstitious but did want to move the number of views to 667.
