next-level IDEATION & creation?

 Oddtoe uses a “hybrid” method for comedy writing.
The notepad of ideas, quotes, and funny scenes won’t be replaced by generative artificial intelligence (AI) any time soon. AI is in its infancy for joke writing and comedic stories. However, I have included the technology in my workflow and writing process. 

Take a look at the possibilities for both generative AI & my own abilities.

Humor evolves. This new era will be a step-change evolution.

A Stream of Comedic Moments

The Venn diagram of Oddtoe is visualization, A.I., and humor. Comedy writing is bound to collide with ChatGPT and other generative platforms. Thematic structures, plot devices, jokes — there’s so much more to experience when an AI can contribute to the writer’s room. In addition, I’m interested in new types of stories set in different locations. After all, not every sitcom needs to be made in New York or Los Angeles.

If the writing is funny or if the idea generation coming from the A.I. is quirky, I’d be prone to use it. Working with generative A.I. is like working with a talented musician who wants to jam with you when you want to.

The future is generative humor. And a generative humorist needs to tend to his or her library

of comedy data, much like what is used to train an A.I. with the cartoons from the New Yorker. My personal hope is that —  with a personal algorithm and deep knowledge in observing the bot I’m working with — I can trust that my sense of humor is more or less used to train the model.

And the stepping stones to building a funny story will gradually build on one another. Gags will progress to comedic scenes and soon to fully-fledged stories that hold together, but generate a new type of comedy writing. Add to the potential to cost-effectively visualize this content, and one can see the fun that’s possible to design and animate.

Mirth at scale. Mirth for all.
