The Top Ten

1 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 its current prime minister is more.

Best humour no doubt

Fawlty Towers!

The ability to laugh at yourself and do so ironically is the pinnacle of humour- the Brits can do that so well.

Mr Bean
Russel Howard
Jack Whitehall
Michael McIntyre
Literally everything else! - DylanB5

2 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.

Too immature! And racist! - DylanB5

If you don't like this sense of humor, you're a commie.

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.

3 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.

Half funny, Half far-lefties who are "offended" or PC - BallBall11

Bloody oath

I'm Australian and I love to ride my kangaroo in the outback (sarcasm).

Everyone loves aussies *cough, everyone* I'm aussie by the way

4 Republic of Ireland

Top 3 for sure - BallBall11

Eat my hole

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.

5 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

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.

Definitely agreed England is hilarious

6 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, 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, 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.

Russia is 6 sextillion times better than English countries

Russians are very funny, should be higher. - BallBall11

Ze Slavic citizens are very Adidas

Look in the memes russia

9 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.

Should be on top..

Indians are relatable

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...

10 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.

Shouldn't be this high AT ALL - BallBall11

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.

The Contenders

11 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.

Canada should be higher in my opinion. Atlantic Canada is very funny - BallBall11

Funny asf though, and I'm a brit.

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.

12 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.

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

I think Egypt should be the first as well.

Egyptians always make a joke of everything, maybe to overcome their everyday struggle in life.

Of course Egypt is number one

13 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.

They always make you laugh with their sense of humor.

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

14 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.

The French can laugh? - BallBall11

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.

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

South Korea has so much entertainment shows on T.V.!

We are boring Asians!

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.

16 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.

I am a Turk we are a lot of fun as a Turk


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.

17 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.

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.

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

Definitely should be in the top 10

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 is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.

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 humour

19 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. 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.

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

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.

20 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

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

21 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

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

22 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

They are the funniest people on earth especially people from Faisalabad

Should be on top

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.

...then they kill you - BallBall11

23 Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

They are lit

No clue

24 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.

Germans laugh after a child falls down the stairs and destroys all of his sister's Christmas new toys - BallBall11

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...

25 Czech Republic Czechia, officially the Czech Republic, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

We LOVE black humor.

This should be first you uncultured swine

Black humor

Laugh to literally anything

26 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. 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.

27 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 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

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.

28 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Norwegians have the humour of a 14 year old - BallBall11

Hello people - pigsforlife

Norwegian humor is so fun we love to make a fool out of ourselves

29 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north.

31 Netherlands

I, as a dutch person, love it but some might find it to *cheesy*.

Yeah, we are funny people. - Userguy44

The Netherlands have a dark and very direct kind of humor.

We are the funniest

32 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.

Having traveled vast parts of the world these people are by far the funniest, most welcoming, and maybe borderline crazy.

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

33 Morocco

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

34 Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. 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

35 Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.


They can almost find everything funny

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

Long live wkwk land

36 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Probably the funniest of the Nordic countries - BallBall11

Denmark is nice

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

37 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.

Jewish film makers/producers. That is all. - BallBall11

The Jewish sense of humour was always the best in the world!

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

38 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.

Smart, witty, clever people! They'll laugh for hours and hours with you! - BallBall11

Funniest protest

Lebanese make jokes about literally anything in multiple ways.

Even during protest memes are the funniest thing you can ever see

39 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.

40 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

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.

41 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.

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!
