Big bang theory's whole joke structure is "hurrr durr smart people don't function in society, now laugh". Nothing said should be surprising.

Go on YouTube and watch videos where people remove the laugh track. It's super awkward and weird.

To be fair you can do that with any sit-com with a baked in laugh track. It's always awkward because it's never meant to be played without that track behind it.

True. But it also illustrates if the jokes are funny or not. And a lot of BBTs jokes fell pretty flat.

That's the same with any show with a laugh track. The pauses for the laughs make them sound very unnatural if you remove them, but if you didn't have laugh tracks you wouldn't have those pauses.
