    Comedy club charges per laugh with facial recognition
    By Jane Wakefield Technology reporter

    A comedy club in Barcelona is experimenting with charging users per laugh, using facial-recognition technology to track how much they enjoyed the show.

    The software is installed on tablets attached to the back of each seat at the Teatreneu club.

    Each laugh is charged at 0.30 euros (23p) with a cap of 24 euros (£18). Takings are up so far.

    The project was developed to combat falling audience numbers.

    Partnering with advertising agency The Cyranos McCann, the experiment was a reaction to increased government taxes on theatre tickets, which in turn led to drastic drops in audience numbers.

    The results of the experiment have so far proved positive with overall ticket prices up by 6 euros, according to the theatre.

    Did he even try on stage? I know it's the same canned act, but I didn't know if he tries to really sell it, or if he just goes through the motions.

    A Shuli stand up gig would bankrupt every comedy club he appears in if they introduce this in the United States.

    The clubs have started selling caffeine and power drinks at his shows.

    There's a $50 fee for falling asleep.

    Hey did you ever review that show here at the dawgshed? I'd love to read your review.
    What the hell happened? Was he still on junk at that point or what? Drunk?
    Bad Artie amuses me as much as funny Artie.

    I just joined here last year, never knew it existed....I had second row seats, H & Beef were sitting like 6 rows behind me. Opening comedian came on, can't even remember his name but he was really pretty funny, then after about 1/2 hour wait, on walks extremely bloated Artie, looking a little nervous, sweaty, and slightly weird, the total act was phoned in. Spent a good 15 mins kissing Howards ass, and thanking Dana and his mother for putting up with his shit, then a really not fun and not funny Artie told used jokes....really bad.....My husband said to me at the time, wow this is like watching gross sweaty Elvis during his last days in Vegas!

    His new specials title "The Stench of Failure" says it all.At what point is he going to realize advertising his worthlessness isn't fun or funny anymore?I mean is that really all he's got?

    He shouild clean up with the "Romo rhymes with Homo" joke.

    That's always a crowd pleaser.

    No matter how many times you hear it.
