They're obnoxious, unnecessary, and an obvious waste of time- but exactly how much time? How much of an average episode of a sitcom like Friends is JUST laughter? That's the question I attempt to answer in this video.This video was one I've been slowly writing for a few months, and one I had a ton of fun making. I know it's very different than anything I've put on this channel so I'm hoping you guys are on board. As you can probably tell, this was heavily inspired by the style of nerdwriter1 (https://youtu.be/3hZ_ZyzCO24), one of my personal favorite youtubers.It's a weird video because it combines comedy and math- two things that are very different. But if you've followed me on here for a while, you know that math is a strangely consistent theme in a lot of my videos. For some reason a love of statistics is deeply ingrained in my brain and there's just nothing you can do to change that so stop trying please.Comment whatever feedback you'd like. follow me:twitter - https://www.twitter.com/drewisgoodeninstagram - https://www.instagram.com/drewisgoodenfacebook - https://www.facebook.com/drewisgoodentwitch - https://www.twitch.tv/drewisgooden"Why Did I Write That Down?"►https://youtu.be/3bqgDNYcRZc"I Joined Team 10 So You Don't Have To"►https://youtu.be/lz7UgBP-m7walso it's courtney cox

    Just imagine if the office had laugh tracks. It would ruin the entire show.

    Instead of laugh tracks the office has Jim's stares.
    Edit: hey mom look what I have done! Are you proud of me now?

    It took me five seasons of watching the office to realize that my parents’ names are Michael and holly

    Honestly, I just stop hearing the laugh track when I watch shows. That 70s show, How I met your mother, Friends, etc. I like those shows even if they have that one annoying detail

    The Office is supposed to be a mockumentary, Friends is a sitcom. Different kinds of humor and scenarios.

    This video isn’t called “why I like the office” but it should be.

    The Office wins for me. The jokes we're subtle yet fit each character individually

    The laugh track was the reason I didn’t want to watch Friends
    I eventually did tho and it was definitely worth it

    Breaking Bad episode "Ozymandias" recognized by many critics as the best in the series. Guess what, it's S5E14 :O

    Friends is classic
    The Office is iconic
    Parks and Rec is the most relevant
    New Girl is what a sitcom should be post 2010

    Friends was the best of it's time. Two decades later it's not. Still good though.
