Implications - The comedy world is adapting to changing technology and pop cultural shifts to accommodate the new ways in which people consume and engage with media. Incorporating these emerging technologies and newfound rituals into comedy allows the genre to better target Millennial and Gen Z demographics. This emerging shift is indicative of the need for even seemingly "timeless" industries to adapt to changing social dynamics and rituals in order to remain relevant.
