Top Ten Funniest Types of Humour

Which humour type would you say is the funniest? I've only added eight, simply because I can't think of any more. If you have any favourites, feel free to add your own.

The Top Ten

Sarcastic

Being a true Brit, this type of humour is the funniest. A classic example is Basil Fawlty of Fawlty Towers

Most stand up is sarcastic

Deadpan

Keeping a dead straight face while delivering a funny is hilarious. A classic example is Trigger in Only Fools and Horses (English version)

Sarcastic, I have no doubt, will stay in first, but deadpan is just brilliant stuff. It's why Milton Jones is a fave of mine.

Dark Humor

Movies like Pulp Fiction and Fight Club are some of the funnest movies ever.

Why did the little girl drop her ice cream?

Because she was hit by a bus!

This list made me lose faith in humanity...

Put this to number 1, people!

Dirty
Slapstick

Laurel & Hardy. Need I say more?

Silly
The Practical Joker

Pranks of all sorts are hilarious!

Nonsense

A bit of a contradiction here, but just hear me out. If someone tells you a joke that makes no sense, we automatically laugh.

I love nonsense! It's so fun!

Toilet Humor

My relatives use this type of humor all the time and I DO NOT find it funny at all. I do like toilet humor, but only if cs188 or I is using it.

My new list... I feel embarrassed

Yesh, I'm immature, but this is my type of humor

Two ants outside a toilet. One says to the other, "What's up with you? You're suddenly in a bad mood since you left the toilet."

The other ant says, "Yeah, well, I was fine, sittin' on the bog mindin' my own business, 'til some bloke came in and p*ssed me off!"

Innuendo

Case in point, Officer crabtree from "Allo "Allo! "I was just pissing your coffee when I heard 2 shats. You are holding in your hand a smoking goon, you are clearly the guilty potty"

Sexual innuendo included? Hmm..I don't know if I could take it lying down...

My favorite is "Ms Yvonne's Wild Ride" from Pee Wee's Playhouse.

The Contenders

British
Shock Humor
Politically Incorrect Humor
Satire

Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy is hilarious. Monty Python is hilarious. Satire is hilarious

Cornball

Ah, thank you for that. It sounds American! No wonder I've never heard of it.

Never heard of this. Someone please explain? Thanks.

@ Britgirl
It means trite and sentimental.
