Bob Mankoff: Anatomy of a New Yorker cartoon – [TED Talks]

The New Yorker

The New Yorker receives around 1,000 cartoons each week; it only publishes about 17 of them. In this hilarious, fast-paced, and insightful talk, the magazine’s longstanding cartoon editor and self-proclaimed “humor analyst” Bob Mankoff dissects the comedy within just some of the “idea drawings” featured in the magazine, explaining what works, what doesn’t, and why.

Bob Mankoff is the cartoon editor of The New Yorker, as well as an accomplished cartoonist in his own right.
