Countries With the Best Sense of Humor
The Top Ten Countries With the Best Sense of Humor
British comedy beats all!
The ability to laugh at yourself and do so ironically is the pinnacle of humour- the Brits can do that so well.
Literally everything else! - DylanB5
Scotland is full of memorable comedy shows like still game and chewin the fat
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.
It's dumb, stupid and totally no-sense and that's why I love it; the best humour of the world, and I'm not even american.
A country with the best comedians, the funniest movies, and the millennial population never ceasing to make each-other laugh... The USA should definitely be considered a top contender. Anyone who has spent time with a group of Americans will find themselves in an environment where every friendly interaction will leave you laughing and joyful. American humor comes in every form imaginable... from immature to witty. Anyone who has seen enough American comedies and stand ups would rate the USA at the top of their list.
It depends on what your taste in humour is. I mean, most foreigners think it's really stupid, but what humour isn't? People I know at least (I am from the US) can make anything turn into a joke right away, usually it being a bit dark. Also, Memes. Had to kinda slip that in there.
I'm Australian and I love to ride my kangaroo in the outback (sarcasm).
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
English humour but much more crude, has a hint of American humour in there too.
I love Australian comedians like Cal Wilson and Anh Do. They really know how to make their life stories sound really funny and interesting. Their improvisation in a show is absolutely great!
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.
The most sarcastic people you will ever meet, can take a joke better than any nation I've ever been in.
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.
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
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
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.
England have the best sense of humour. They can throw a remark at you and keep a straight face (sarcasm). The British do this so well. I love their comedies they make me laugh out loud real hard. England is the funniest country. And I want to go to live there one day. Hello English people.
Gotta love the anime humor.
Italy has the best comedians and is so funny once u get to know italian.
The best comedian movies are from comedians like Checco Zalone or other Italian actors. Italy should be first place by far!:)
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.
Russia is 6 sextillion times better than English countries
Russians are very funny, should be higher. - BallBall11
Russia very funny, yes?
Look in the memes russia
The huge impact of movies on Indians is one of the reasons why Indians are quite possibly the only people that could understand sense of humour of any country, any culture, any religion, any lifestyle.
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...
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
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!
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!
Mexican humor is great, they even makes jokes about themselves, which is a think not everybody does.
Mexicans, now those are funny people. They can be funny, loud and sarcastic.
Really! Canada has/is producing some of the greatest comedians. Mike Myers, Dan Aykroyd, Seth Rogan, Jim Carrey, Rich Little just to name a few.
Canada should be higher in my opinion. Atlantic Canada is very funny - BallBall11
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.
"Jim Carrey, Norm MacDonald, Mike Myers, Seth Rogen, John Candy, Will Arnet.. to name a few. These iconic names are revolutionary in american comedy culture, with the likes of Carrey and Rogen being prolific influences in some of the best known comedy flicks around.
I don't agree, I think Spanish people has the best sense of humor in Europe.
Spanish people know how to make people laugh and they aren't boring
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
They always make you laugh with their sense of humor.
Egypt is by far the funniest countries I have been lived, have many friends, and watch the movie of the all the eleven countries that above Egypt in this website they are not funny at all comparing with Egypt. Simple english
Egyptians always make a joke of everything, maybe to overcome their everyday struggle in life.
If you talk with Egyptians in any topic even politics they are able to create very funny jokes about almost anything and everything. Such creative jokes that make you laugh from heart. My opinion they are the best.
The best country ever in humor sense and you can touch that in their movies, series and their people in street and everywhere.
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.
Some french jokes were hard to understand, but when my sister taught me them, I loved it! - COMMANDARZ
I love French humor as well as British one, both the best.
I visited Paris and got them fun. Love Paris
We are boring Asians!
South Korea has so much entertainment shows on T.V.!
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.
Best sense of humor by far. Very high standards, because the country itself is the most absurd being a combo of east and west.
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
The humor of this country feeds on its cultural wealth. The deep historical background gives the color to this richness.
As a German I can say that Turks are the most comic nation in the World
I have been here and the people there know their sense of humour
We don't take ourselves seriously & find humour in so many things. I'm moving to the States soon & know they don't laugh at the same things! Scotland, the finest & most beautiful country in the world! Will I move...NAH! I'll jist bide in Bonnie Scotland! I'll eat ma porridge & ma stovies wi an oatcake & weer ma cosy claes!
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
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.
Sometimes, we can be really sarcastic, but our jokes are just so ROFL!
Definitely should be in the top 10
Filipinos should be the "FIRST" because even if they are in bad situation they their smiles on their faces.
In my opinion Philippines should be number 1,because they have funny humours and always have a smile in their face's, even if their jokes are corny or not it will still make us laugh, some Filipinos make other words funny, and also Filipinos make the best hugot lines especially in romance/love, we Filipinos are kind
Philippines is the best country with a lot of laughing people even if they have a problem.
"Philippines must be at the number 1" because filipinos always smile, laugh and even cry with a tears of joys, they also always feel the hurt in the abdomenal muscles because they laugh a lot, sometimes even if it's corny you will feel like laughing out loud because of the corniest feeling you'll also feel happy. But the funniest thing is being nasty and making vine videos. So the Philippines has the greatest sense of humour ever because they don't feel any offense when you crack a joke, anytime you can tell or crack a joke because they have a highest sense of mumore. So they must at first.
P. S. Don't search funny movies in the philippines because kinda bit corny instead of friending a filipino is much better.
Greece should be higher.
We must be first because we only have humour to pass our crisis
They are the most warm and own to Earth
Hellas should be first, no doubt
Brazil should be WAY higher; their love to socialize, converse, express emotion and sincerity... maybe less aware of stand-up comedy because of Brazilian issues but their capacity to make fun, tease, take and give dark humour is unlimited - BallBall11
Brazil is just so Good, there people make fun of everything and they don't care who is going to be offended. I love Brazil.
Brazil has a very dark sense of humour, if you listen to certain podcasts you will see it. They are very sarcastic about things that are considered "Taboo".
When a Brazililian is not in public, they can do jokes about everything, because no one will held them accountable to that, that's what it's good about podcasts and forums(that are considerably underground media here in Brazil)
South America Memes bro
They are the funniest people on earth especially people from Faisalabad
Pakistan and its people are mostly misunderstood in world unless people visit and see it. They are the most genuinely comic and humoristic with unique presence of mind and wittiest nature. They are optimistic and happy in any situation.
I think Pakistan's nation have an art of laughing there own weaknesses that's the reason they can survive in most devastating conditions..
Pakistani comedy is the best of all
Argentinians are hilarious and especially if you speak Spanish and you can appreciate their accent and body language
They are lit
Germans laugh after a child falls down the stairs and destroys all of his sister's Christmas new toys - BallBall11
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
This should be first you uncultured swine
Laugh to literally anything
We LOVE black humor.
The sarcasm and irony is the bigger humor and I know that because I live here
Swedish people are extremely sarcastic and witty.
Great sarcasm and irony.
In everything they do a joke is slipped in. And it's all very ridiculous and very camp.
Flight of the conchords. To me that sums up Kiwi humor and it is absolutely brilliant.
I'm from Australia, and I can tell you for a fact that New Zealand has the funniest people on earth. Honestly prefer them over my own when it comes to comedy. Haha
Kiwis aka New zealanders are the funniest people in the world that's a fact
us kiwis make the funniest jokes and sometimes just for a mean as accent
if you don't believe me come here right now you,ll get it trust me Aussie is
trash America is to I wont forget about England they all have dry as jokes
so New zealand is the funniest country in the world
New Zealand has comedy ingrained into the very soul of the nation.
Norwegian humor is so fun we love to make a fool out of ourselves
Hello people - pigsforlife
Norwegians have the humour of a 14 year old - BallBall11
Hilarious people, tough-minded, love to joke around and see the funny in life. - BallBall11
Moroccan people are funny, from my experiences is comedy a part of their culture and Morocco should be at least in top 10!
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
You should live with them to know how funny they are.
Iranian always laugh and tell jokes I think they are the Best...
The language system is perfect for making you laugh even at things which aren't really that funny logically.
Jokes are the way we use to critisize our social, political and economical issues. We have good sense of humor and love to laugh.
I, as a dutch person, love it but some might find it to *cheesy*.
The Netherlands have a dark and very direct kind of humor.
We are the funniest
The best stand-up comedians!
Having traveled vast parts of the world these people are by far the funniest, most welcoming, and maybe borderline crazy.
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
Bosanci have the best jokes. - pigsforlife
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
Even when they get criticized by the rest of the world, they take it with a laugh - Munkepige
Probably the funniest of the Nordic countries - BallBall11
Denmark is nice
I love denmark! they are so funny!
They can almost find everything funny
There's a reason why it's called the wkwkwkkk land
Long live wkwk land
Are u kidding me? Israeli's people are the most funniest people in the whole world!
The evolution of Jewish humor is of course Israeli humor...
Jewish film makers/producers. That is all. - BallBall11
The Jewish sense of humour was always the best in the world!
Smart, witty, clever people! They'll laugh for hours and hours with you! - BallBall11
Lebanese make jokes about literally anything in multiple ways.
Even during protest memes are the funniest thing you can ever see
Have a potential sense of humor, if u could learn the Chinese culture.
My relatives are Asian and they like making jokes about little kids' butts, private parts, pee, poop, and farts and I find it very immature and inappropriate.
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."
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
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
Meet a Tunisian and you will meet the real sense of humour :3
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.
You just have to be friends with them for 49 years before they tell a joke - BallBall11
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!
The world's capital of humor, Gabrovo, is in Bulgaria
No one can joke like we do it
I have a friend here and he’s hilarious.
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
Georgians are incredibly funny, but only those who know Georgian can get it well.
Same sense of humor like serbia and bosnia and hercegovina
