Countries With the Best Sense of Humor
The Top Ten
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.V 21 Comments
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! - COMMANDARZV 30 Comments
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. - truckturnerV 9 Comments
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! - BritgirlV 11 Comments
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.V 42 Comments
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!V 1 Comment
Ze Slavic citizens are very Adidas
Look in the memes russia
Russia very funny, yes?
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...V 25 Comments
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!

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.V 8 Comments
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 friendlyV 29 Comments
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
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.V 5 Comments
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!
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!V 4 Comments
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.V 5 Comments
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?V 3 Comments
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 ~V 21 Comments
We must be first because we only have humour to pass our crisis

I love Pakistan
Pakistani people are by far the most humorous people despite their all political and social issues.
I agree, Pakistani people are the most optimistic despite having tough neighbours and all their problems.

They are lit
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.V 6 Comments
Hello people - pigsforlife

I England have great sense of humor. But Morocco should be at least in the top three
Moroccans are definitely the funniest!
I think morocco is the best wa drni zbii
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.V 3 Comments
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
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
The Netherlands have a dark and very direct kind of humor.
We are the funniest
The best stand-up comedians!
We have so much fun her in Holland, LOL...
I love denmark! they are so funny!
Even when they get criticized by the rest of the world, they take it with a laugh - Munkepige
They can almost find everything funny
Long live wkwk land
There's a reason why it's called the wkwkwkkk land
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.
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!
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.
Donate to Israel
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 funnyV 1 Comment
The world's capital of humor, Gabrovo, is in Bulgaria
You have to understand Finnish to get finnish jokes but there are only less than 5 million people speaking Finnish. So we have to speak English to appeal the wide audience.
Just listen how funny Ismo Leikola sounds!
Georgians are incredibly funny, but only those who know Georgian can get it well.
Same sense of humor like serbia and bosnia and hercegovina
No one can joke like we do it
We could have 1 joke, made up from multi languages
What is there to say? we have funds for days but jokes that lasts for years
