Idea #1,072,543 Comedy Hero VR

I’m imagining looking out across a thousand chatbot audience members all staring back at me, on stage, telling jokes. The conversational interface will know based on popular culture, current events, timing and a series of humor attributes whether or not I’m funny.

Audience bots will laugh if I deliver the funny, and boo if I’m really dragging. Keying off of other audience bots sets a mood for the room. If I do a little crowd work, the bots I direct my attention toward, react accordingly.

And as soon as Sony gets on this, maybe you can even join in as an audience member and influence the audiene bots around you.

This is possibly a very tough crowd.
