    It’s filmed in front of a studio audience, who seem to have found it funny, hence the ‘canned laughter’. Here’s a brief article in the Guardian by the writer Graham Linehan, explaining why he prefers filming sitcoms in front of a studio audience:

    Great show. “If you Google the word ‘google’ you will break the internet.”

    This was the very first scene I saw from The IT Crowd fell in love with the show right then and there. I love the show so much that I have seen every episode at least 3 times on Netflix… LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Seriously, IT Crowd is like my favorite comedy ever! Discovered it last year and I’ve seen it around 20 times till now.

    To those of you hating on the canned laughter. There is none. it’s recorded and then shown to an audience, who are recorded.
    Most TV in the UK is not as fictitious as US shows tend to be.

    LOL Silly people! The internet weighs 50 grams!

    But it’s not the portable version, it is the Internet. That’s one of my favourite chapters.

    I am a huge fan of the IT Crowd. Oh, but if you like dark tech humor, you should definitely read BOFH as well.

    This video always makes me laugh, cuz it show’s clearly, how naive, the non-technical people are….

    The guys couldn’t believe at how easily the muggles believes that a little box was the internet lol.

    Canned laughter was so annoying that I didn’t finish watching. Otherwise, a clever skit, ruined by a laugh track.
