Tongue-in-cheek is a phrase used as a figure of speech to imply that a statement or other production is humorously intended and it should not be taken at face value. This statement may have a double meaning, some sort of innuendo or is witty in some way, particularly to the speaker. The tone or the context of the statement may make it to be taken seriously by the listener. “Tongue-in-cheek” is a show that seeks to understand what happens when a sense of humor comes in contact with a material. Presenting the question: Why as makers do we feel the need to bestow laughter into our objects, and why can that laughter be so contagious to the viewer?
