Comedist Evolution

It was pointed out to me that the Comedist insistance on a new selection mechanism in evolutionary theory -- survival of the funniest -- needs clarification. Citing the Darwin Award recipients, an early Comedist convert has pointed out that being funny might, in fact, lead to death before acheiving the propagation of one's genetic code. It seems that for our addition to Darwin's theory to work, there must be a biological version of the "laughing with vs. laughing at" distinction on the level of the individual organism and its interaction with its ecosystem. If there are any Comedist biologists out there who want to stop their research on splicing firefly genes into mammals in order to make certain organs glow in the dark and pick up on this problem instead, it would be greatly appreciated.
