In this book, the author uses a mental-model theory of communication to investigate the acclaimed British situation comedy The Office. The approach taken is multi-disciplinary, and focuses on questions as:
What are mental models and what role do they play in communication in general, and in creating and watching The Office in particular?
Whose mental models are involved in creating and watching The Office? How do these mental models relate to each other?
How exactly do the creators of The Office and their audience engage in constructing, exchanging and coordinating mental models?
How do mental models and their comic use relate to humour and humour theories and what is the nature of play in the deployment of mental models in comedy?
The book is aimed at humour scholars from various backgrounds and at people interested in communication in general.
