TED Talk: Anatomy of a New Yorker Cartoon

When I graduated from college, I subscribed to the The New Yorker.  It is a weekly magazine and while the articles and essays are superbly written, it didn’t take long for me to fall behind. As the stack grew, my husband suggested that we cancel our subscription, but I refused.  I couldn’t part with the cartoons.

Bob Mankoff is a cartoonist and the cartoon editor of The New Yorker. In this funny and interesting TED Talk, he discusses what makes us laugh and how he chooses 15 or so cartoons for each issue among the thousands of submissions. Watch and laugh.
