The most recent episode of the PBS Off Book webseries, “What’s the deal with Internet Comedy?” invited three comedians to discuss three facets of comedy that reaches you over the series of tubes we call Internet. You are using them now. Good job.

Jon Friedman talks Twitter, and how the 140-character form has impacted joke writing and sharing. Mike Lawrence explains the rise of podcasts and his “Nerd of Mouth” podcast, in particular. And CollegeHumor’s Sam Reich dissects web sketch comedy video and how it roams free of censorship.

Roll the clip.
