Can A.I Generate Jokes that Imitate Popular Comedians?

Go Back

Don't worry, comedians aren't going anywhere anytime soon...

Today we're talking about something that's been on my mind: Chat GPT. You may have heard of it - it's a popular online chat spot that's powered by artificial intelligence. Chat GPT is the revolutionary new language model developed by OpenAI, and people are already using the free AI chatbot to do research and write essays. But some even fear that chat GPT could replace the need for human beings to work in many jobs in the near future.

So, it got me thinking: could artificial intelligence ever take the place of comedians? In today's video, I decided to feed Chat GPT a series of prompts from some of our favorite comedians, asking the artificial intelligence program to re-write jokes in their comedic styles. To fully test this out, I picked three comics that have unique and distinct voices: Bobby Lee, Joey Diaz, and of course, Theo Von.

First up, we have Bobby Lee. I asked Chat GPT to tell me a funny story in the comedic styling of Bobby Lee about Bobby wanting his ex-girlfriend to move out of his house. The result was pretty random and not quite on the mark, but still something that Bobby might say. I realized that the key here was to be more specific and ask for exact stories in the style of Bobby Lee.

Next up was Joey Diaz. I had a feeling this one would be challenging, as not even artificial intelligence could come up with some of the vulgar jokes that go on in between Joey Diaz's ears. But we got more specific and asked for a story from the point of view of Joey Diaz, talking to Joe Rogan on his podcast about living in Boulder, Colorado and getting into some trouble. The result was pretty close to what Joey might say, just a little bit robotic.

Last but not least, we had the ultimate test: Theo Von. We asked Chat GPT to tell us three funny stories in the comedic stylings of Theo Von, and the results were surprisingly good. It used words and phrases that Theo might use, like "man" and "southern boy." The conversation we asked it to create between Theo and Bobby about Bobby not having much luck on the dating apps was a bit off, but still amusing.

In general, I think the job of comedians is safe for now, but it's definitely concerning how advanced AI is becoming. It's exciting to see what the future holds, but it's also a bit scary to think about what could happen if we rely too much on artificial intelligence. If you want to try it out for yourself, just type "Chat GPT" into your browser and have some fun with it. Who knows, maybe you'll come up with something hilarious.
