Abstract: How can we activate communication? Although we participate in and contribute to various conversations everyday, we are not necessarily self-aware of what skills we employ to activate conversations. A good example of experts good at activating conversations is comedians. They quickly grasp what roles they are supposed to play in any changing circumstances in a TV variety show so that the whole atmosphere is enjoyable. Focusing on “Ametalk”, a popular TV variety show, we analyzed conversations statistically from the viewpoints of “roles” and “rhetoric”, clarifying why the conversations make us amused.
