The Institute of Laughter

Dr. Chuck Ells

Dr. Chuck Ells is the head of the 45TV Institute of Laughter, though much of his life remains a great mystery. Rumored to have grown up living in an upside down satellite dish, it has neither been confirmed nor denied that he ran away from home to join Monty Python’s Flying Circus. As an adolescent, he won a local science fair for inventing the popular party game Charades. His love for television blossomed the first time he saw the title sequence to The Brady Bunch and it continued to grow through his formative and increasingly formidable years. He has a degree in Quasi-Sciences from Judge Reinhold’s School for the Gifted and received a degree in Comedy from the Harvard of the Midwest, though the school dissolved after he graduated. He remains the only person to successfully dissect a television wave and extract the comedic ions.
