Pro comedians tried using ChatGPT and Google Gemini to write their jokes – these were the hilariously unfunny results

AI chatbots like ChatGPT and Google Gemini can do a lot of things, but one thing they aren’t renowned for is their sense of humor – and a new study confirms that they’d likely get torn to shreds on the stand-up comedy circuit.

The recent Google DeepMind study (as spotted by the MIT Technology Review) followed the experiences of 20 professional comedians who all used AI to create original comedy material. They could use their preferred assistant to generate jokes, co-write jokes through prompting, or rewrite some of their previous material. Unfortunately, the AI assistants mostly made C-3PO look like a comedy genius.
