Scientists at the University of Stirling, UK, blended the features of the 20 top UK comedians to come up with the perfect face for comedy.
They discovered that a round face with small forehead, a wide nose, and soft feminine features are most likely to make people laugh. Oh, and that Ricky Gervais [wiki], the creator and star of "The Office" is the closest fit:
Gervais pronounced himself "shocked" by the results of the survey.
He said: "All these years I assumed my global success as a comedian was down to my acute observations, expert directorial rendering and consummate skills as a performer - turns out it's because I've got a fat girly face."
