Countries With the Best Sense of Humor

The Top Ten

1 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's current prime minister is more.

Love the British. Great people and great sense of humor. I love their way to laugh at their country even during a crisis! My god bless British humor

British comedy is great and very popular in Czech Republic. Their sense of humour is very similar to ours. Black Adder, Red Dwarf, Little Britain etc. You can be proud of it.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

We are pretty decent - Opinionatedarsehole

I agree with Bill Bryson, Brits (and, at my peril, I am including the Irish) love to laugh and cannot be in conversation for more than 5 minutes without sharing and laughing at something funny. The humour is different in different parts of the UK, some high-brow and subtle, some much less so, some dry, some very robustly not! Watch two Americans talking, two French, two Germans (sorry, that last was unfair, we all know a German joke is no laughing matter) and they can go hours without a laugh, especially middle-class Americans who can drone on in mock-scientific expertise mode until all around them have lost the will to live. Humour in the UK and Ireland is like tea, it's on offer minutes, sometimes seconds, into any conversation between friends, family or strangers.

2 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

U.S. humour too immature and too in your face for my liking. It's just stupid humour that is very unsubtle and therefore boring.

Not funny at all. - pigsforlife

They're good at getting roasted a lot!

Humor here is SO good! - COMMANDARZ

3 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Always up for a good laugh if your not a cuck

Depends on how you answer the question. Yes, the Brits probably have better comedians historically, but the Australian people themselves (i.e. regular people) are more widely known for our sense of humour. - truckturner


The Aussies have a watered-down British sense of humour

Nonsense. We take a lot from the Brits in general, but not our sense of humour. That's uniquely Australian. - truckturner

4 Republic of Ireland

My Irish dad is funny as well his father and grandfather. Some of my uncles were the same. I laughed a lot growing up and I miss those days.

Yeah, lepricorns make you laugh, they speak so hilariously - Opinionatedarsehole

The Irish are jovial and enjoy telling witty stories. They also engage happily with strangers by using humour as an icebreaker. I think this puts them well ahead of the English who are cold and only start expressing their humour if they know you really well. Go to any place where people meet, the pup, rugby pitch or work place and you will hear the Irish chortling. In England you hardly ever hear people joking or laughing only when they are at home. English humour relies very heavily on belittling others. If you want fun go to Ireland.

Hello all. I voted England as well but wanted to give the R.O.I a vote too. I agree about Father Ted, this is so funny. There is nothing I dislike about this fine comedy - plus I do love a lovely Southern Irish accent :-) Tup O' the morning to yer! - Britgirl

5 England England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. more.

It's not really fair to mention just England of their sense of humour, even though it's England that has produced the most successful comedies; the rest of Great Britain has has a fantastic sense of humour, and it's not just comedies and comedians that get paid to be funny; it's ordinary British Joe Public that makes me laugh. The British people on the whole has a very dry, intelligent, subtle and often very sarcastic sense of fun and playfulness.

It's how we ruled the world. You can laugh your way into anything or anywhere. Who can say no to a ship full of pillaging racists if they're armed with one liners? - Redss

Definitely agreed England is hilarious

England. A country which can take the mickey out of themselves. They don't take anything to heart and their sarcasm is funny beyond belief. They have the best stand-up comedians - Jack Dee, Lee Mack, Lee Evans, Tim Vine and too many others for me to mention. England is at its rightful place at number one. They're a funny lot. (I'm an Aussie) and I love The Pom coms.

Pitting the English sense of humour against all other countries is not fair. It's like taking a sledgehammer to crack a walnut! England hands down.

6 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.


7 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

I think Italians have the best sense of humor anywhere- if you understand Italian you will see what we mean! I am not Italian but appreciate their sense of humor!

One of the funniest countries I have ever been to- once you get to know them, Italians are very funny people.

Italian humor is sardonic and self-deprecating- I find that very appealing.

Italy is the funniest!

8 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

Ze Slavic citizens are very Adidas

Look in the memes russia

Russia very funny, yes?

9 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

Indians make joke on themselves. They take things differently, They can handle sad time with great humor.

Yes! Jabradasth, a comedy show, is very big in places where people speak Telugu! - COMMANDARZ

Always India is best.

It's huge country.. Some parts of India have great sense of humour.. Bengal, Punjab and Kerala to name a few. Though the humour in these parts vary widely from brainy to silly to sarcastic...

10 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million kmĀ²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

Canadian culture holds sarcasm as a main form of communication from a very young age, when generally brain development prevents young children from being able to comprehend sarcasm. Maybe we're just not rude enough (like dry sarcasm from the brits, or obnoxious like the aussies and americans) but rest assured, we are passive aggressively leading the world in sarcasm.

Except for Toronto.

Down to Earth Humor, relatable. Best for any audience!

love it

11 Mexico Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

We have a good sense of humor

As a foreigner it was so difficult for me at the beginning to get the jokes but once I learned spanish I understood how Mexicans joke, I loved it!

If Mexico is not in the number one is because we are extremely clever when it comes to humor and even if you speak Spanish can be challenging to understand our jokes!

Mexican humor is great, they even makes jokes about themselves, which is a think not everybody does.

12 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptians just like to joke about anything and everything

Egyptians are so funny people. They love laughing and appreciate it so much.

Humor is part of Egyptians genetics, they are able to create unlimited jokes in every situation in their life!

Egyptians are known for their sense of humor and being so down to earth and friendly

13 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Spanish people know how to make people laugh and they aren't boring

I don't agree about that spaniards are more funniest thanks most oficina they countries

I don't agree, I think Spanish people has the best sense of humor in Europe.

Unlike the Irish, Spaniards wait for others to laugh at their jokes, instead of laughing their heads off when no one else at the table is laughing. Unlike the English, the basis for their sense of humor is not pedantry. having said that, and myself being a Spaniard, we probably have the worst sense of humor in Europe, next to the Germans

14 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Some french jokes were hard to understand, but when my sister taught me them, I loved it! - COMMANDARZ

They have the highest number of comedians, of imitators in Europe, as well as the number of comic T.V. or radio shows. And there are taboos, absolutely no. But with respect. Bashing or insulting just to hurt, is no humor.

Why don't you go yeet a biscuit

I love French humor as well as British one, both the best.

15 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

They have really funny talk shows, it's just that they're not popularised internationally because of their language barrier. but nowadays, a lot of these videos are uploaded to youtube with subtitles and is gaining popularity.

We are boring Asians!

16 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

The humor of this country feeds on its cultural wealth. The deep historical background gives the color to this richness.


With a comedy government and many people pushing the limits of stupidity it's really hard for one not to have a great sense of humor

Best sense of humor!

17 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

Straight to the point and full of self-deprecation. I love it.

Definitely should be in the top 10

Serbian humour is various: it can be dark, it can be silly and it can be witty. Most characteristically, it is very direct and is unafraid of exposing the main point. The Serbian people know to make a joke at the expense of their own misfortune and they are not PC-sensitive, which is a relief in this era of strict political correctness.

Overall, Serbian humour is bold humour, and not for the sensitive people.

Best in the world! I don't know any country to laugh at themselves and find something laughable during the most difficult times, for instance a destructive war. Watch "Pretty village pretty flame" to convince yourself.

18 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

Scotland should be number 1 and the english don't have a sense of humour

Obviously Scotland has the best sense of humour, indeed needs the best sense of humour, as we have England as neighbours...

I LOVE SCOTTISH HUMOR, they're so sarcastic and never take themselves seriously, or think they're better than others. Everyone's up for a laugh all the time, I love it

Frankie Boyle! Do I have to say anything more?

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Well...Philippines have the most funniest, corniest jokes ever...There's no day that Philippines can't work without a smile and some laughs because of new meme's they made

Filipinos always seem to find a way to laugh at things even during hard times. They always have this certain positive outlook in every situation that they end up pulling out puns and sarcastic jokes!

Calamities upon calamities that hit this country whether it be by nature or politics people of this country survive it all with their sense of humour. Not a day where man or child not left with a smile no matter what kind of problem this poor country is facing. The people in this poor country survive it all with their good sense of humor.

A country where people would laugh over tiniest things and would create biggest jokes out of it. the meme capital ~

24 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

Very funny actually nazis kinda ruined the reputation

The german humour is not for everyone... it is pretty dry. The main aspect of german humour is politics, science and dark humour. While all three of those aspects are a little "fragile" they are really good laughing matter once you get used to it. Good thing about german humour is that germans are capable of laughing about their own history. While I can see it is not the best humour, I can not see why it should be the worst either.

Germany 6? Most likely 206...

Germans being on this list? I did Nazi that coming!

... But seriously the German sense of humour is very underrated, it's just incredibly dry and Americans don't really understand subtlety so no wonder they are not appreciated more

The sarcasm and irony is the bigger humor and I know that because I live here

Swedish people are extremely sarcastic and witty.

In everything they do a joke is slipped in. And it's all very ridiculous and very camp.

Great sarcasm and irony.

Moroccans are definitely the funniest!

I think morocco is the best wa drni zbii

30 New Zealand New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. more.

Just one big piss take

Flight of the conchords. To me that sums up Kiwi humor and it is absolutely brilliant.

Kiwis are so funny! Not as in they have a good sense of humour, but the sheep, gumboots, jandals, accent, who couldn't laugh! And they take a joke, unless it's about pavlova being aussie, which it's not by the way.

New Zealand has comedy ingrained into the very soul of the nation.

A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.

the best

Belgium along French are surely the best concerning dealing with humour, by the way Humour is a French word..

The crossroad of 2 cultures brings inspiring humor... Good example is for example Els De schepper just did a little tour in Canada for the French speaking, while her roots are in Dutch...

There is this show called "Foute Vrienden" and It's absolutely hilarious. I'm Dutch, but my vote goes to Belgium

32 Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia-Herzegovina or Bosnia & Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH or B&H, and, in short, often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula.

Bosanci have the best jokes. - pigsforlife

This country should be def no1 on the list. Great great humor

Bosnia should be #1 they were remembered as the joke producers in Yugoslavia and the dumb funny ones. They even made jokes about theire own war, during the war lol

We are the funniest

The best stand-up comedians!

Long live wkwk land

There's a reason why it's called the wkwkwkkk land

36 Tunisia Tunisia Tunisia, officially the Tunisian Republic or the Republic of Tunisia is the northernmost country in Africa, covering 165,000 square kilometres.

Meet a Tunisian and you will meet the real sense of humour :3

Tunisia is number 31 because it is not a well known country but it deserves a place in the top 3 in the world I am telling you

Tunisians can really make funny jokes from everything

Tunisians are so sarcastic about everything, they make jokes about topics that aren't even supposed to be funny. they will also make fun of you while talking to you without you even noticing it.

37 Lebanon Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun . It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, more.

Sit with a group of Lebanese people and you'll laugh your ass off!

That's is true I got my uncle I just laugh out of my ass! :) dirty sexual explict jokes!

38 Israel Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

The evolution of Jewish humor is of course Israeli humor...

Israeli Humor, in its foundation is mixture of Fun and Sarcasm. It all began in the diaspora humor, ghetto humor. and you see this humor last until this days. therefore Israel can be in the top 5

China and Germany before Israel.. so funny! :)))

Israel is the best country.

It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

China can be a very unfunny place, and you don't really think of it as a country for comedy...but they will sneak up on you occasionally with world-class throw-away lines and gallows humor. I was on a tour bus out in the mountains, and there was a lot of heavy rain, and we were concerned about going off the road and into the ravine. Someone from the group asked if we'd die if we did. Without skipping a beat, the tour guide grimly shook his head and deadpanned, "No, we will bounce first."

How is this on the list I used to live here and no one got a single joke.

Asian people have their own sense of humor, all of you need to show your respect. by the way according to survey, only a small portion of Chinese eat dogs and cats

Fourth largest country and you will not find humor anywhere unless you consider eating cats and dogs is funny

42 Finland Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.
