BU News: Prof. Douglas Glick

Douglas Glick, assistant professor of anthropology, was featured on the Discovery News Channel for his study of stand-up comedy. He researched the linguistic techniques involved in stand-up by examining two of Eddie Izzard’s routines for a paper to be published in the scientific journal Language and Communication. The story was also featured in an issue of the United Kingdom’s publication Chortle on April 13.


  1. I am very interested in rewading the article about comedy. Hiow can I purchase a copy when it is published?

  2. Hi Linda,
    Just send me an email at and I’ll be sure to get you one!
    Thanks for the interest, Doug
