New Viz: You Serious?


I love IronViz.  I mean, I really really really LOVE IronViz.  However, this year, I volunteered to be a judge.  As a judge, I made a commitment to not provide feedback on other IronViz entries (something I love to do) and I made my own commitment not to even comment about any particular entry or even favorite them on Tableau Public. 

As I started to see IronViz entries being shared on Tableau Public and Twitter, I got jealous.  I wanted in!  I wanted to favorite IronViz entries, I wanted to comment on them, I wanted to retweet them (historically I’ve retweeted every single one I saw), I wanted to provide feedback, but more than anything, I wanted to create my own IronViz entry. 

So, during that time, I opted to create a visualization of my own (with a completely different topic) where I would put forth all the time, effort and energy that I would have for IronViz.  So without further ado, the present you You Serious?” – an analysis of comedians and comedic actors in serious roles.  (Click the photo to go to the interactive viz).

  1. Once Again Master Piece.
    Any tutorial or helping material for the above ?

    1. Oh wow. That's so kind of you. Well, not really. I used Ken's equidistant Sankey template and the rest are unit histograms and jitter plots. There are some tricky bits in there, but no write-up just yet. Let me know if there are specific things you'd like to know about and I'd be happy to show you.
