The KNEE OF THE CURVE is a comedy news show about innovation and technology breakthroughs. We dumb it down so you can smarten up.

On a graph, the point of most extreme change is called the "knee of the curve." Technology is changing society faster and faster.  We're approaching  THE SINGULARITY, when technology starts advancing so fast humans can't comprehend it. It'll be like everyone turns 80 at the exact same time. Except aging will be cured and you can live on Mars if you want.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, GENETIC ENGINEERING, CRYPTOCURRENCY.  This news will impact your life a lot more than Trump's latest tweet, and impact the planet more than bringing back coal

The Knee Of The Curve is like the Daily Show, just replace Trump with Elon Musk and gerrymandering with SEX ROBOTS.

   Emmett Short is the creator and host of Knee Of The Curve. Emmett is a standup comic from Northern California who performs regularly at The Punchline and has toured globally performing at colleges and clubs and for our troops overseas.  In 2006 Emmett was invited to the Montreal Comedy Festival as one of their New Faces Of Comedy, alongside comics like Hannibal Buress and Adam Devine

   Emmett created KOTC because of his passion for SciFi and Futurism. Also he wants to live forever, or be downloaded. Whatever's clever. He hopes this show will keep you laughing all the way to your eventual enslavement by our robot overlords.
