Countries With the Best Sense of Humor
The Top Ten
The ability to laugh at yourself and do so ironically is the pinnacle of humour- the Brits can do that so well.
Only fools and horses... Say no more!
Best and most clever humor by far.
I live in the UK so I like itV 28 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.
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.
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 definitely can say that US humor is very demeaning and stupid, but it can often be so out there that it ends up being hilarious!V 35 Comments
I'm Australian and I love to ride my kangaroo in the outback (sarcasm).
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 10 Comments
Yeah! Irish guys stories are funny as hell!
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.

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?
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.
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
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 26 Comments
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
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.
Except for Toronto.
Down to Earth Humor, relatable. Best for any audience!V 15 Comments
Spanish people know how to make people laugh and they aren't boring
I don't agree, I think Spanish people has the best sense of humor in Europe.
I don't agree about that spaniards are more funniest thanks most oficina they countries
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
Egyptians just like to joke about anything and everything
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.
Egyptians are so funny people. They love laughing and appreciate it so much.
Egyptians are known for their sense of humor and being so down to earth and friendlyV 29 Comments
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.
I love French humor as well as British one, both the best.
I visited Paris and got them fun. Love ParisV 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!
VERY CRAZY PEOPLE
The humor of this country feeds on its cultural wealth. The deep historical background gives the color to this richness.
Best sense of humor by far. Very high standards, because the country itself is the most absurd being a combo of east and west.V 5 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
Everyone just wants a laugh
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
Scotland should be number 1 and the english don't have a sense of humourV 5 Comments
"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.
Philippines is the best country with a lot of laughing people even if they have a problem.
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
Okay but ph deserves number 1 I mean take a look at the countries taking the momo challenge seriously, mean while ph is just making memes about itV 25 Comments
We must be first because we only have humour to pass our crisis
Greece should be higher.
They are the most warm and own to Earth
Hellas should be first, no doubtV 3 Comments
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
BRAZIL IS THE FUNNIEST COUNTRY EVER AND NO OPINION MATTERS EXCEPT MINEV 4 Comments
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..
One of the wittiest people on planet earth.
I love PakistanV 17 Comments
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.
Great sarcasm and irony.
In everything they do a joke is slipped in. And it's all very ridiculous and very camp.V 6 Comments
Hello people - pigsforlife
Norwegian humor is so fun we love to make a fool out of ourselves

Flight of the conchords. To me that sums up Kiwi humor and it is absolutely brilliant.
Kiwis aka New zealanders are the funniest people in the world that's a fact

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
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.V 4 Comments
They are really funny

Iranian always laugh and tell jokes I think they are the Best...V 7 Comments

The Netherlands have a dark and very direct kind of humor.
We are the funniest
The best stand-up comedians!V 1 Comment
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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
How is this on the list I used to live here and no one got a single joke.V 2 Comments
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
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
Same sense of humor like serbia and bosnia and hercegovina
No one can joke like we do it
Georgians are incredibly funny, but only those who know Georgian can get it well.
