Humorous Lectures and Humorous Examples: Some Effects upon Comprehension and Retention
Kaplan, Robert M.; Pascoe, Gregory C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 1, 61-5, Feb 77

A test of comprehension and retention was given twice: immediately after the lecture and six weeks later. Results indicated that immediate comprehension was not facilitated by the use of humorous examples. (Author/MV)
