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 Funniest Types of Humour

1 Sarcastic

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

Most stand up is sarcastic - Curti2594

2 Deadpan

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

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. - PositronWildhawk

3 Dark Humor

This list made me lose faith in humanity...

Why did the little girl drop her ice cream?

Because she was hit by a bus!

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

Put this to number 1, people!

4 Dirty
5 Slapstick

Laurel & Hardy. Need I say more? - Britgirl

6 Silly
7 The Practical Joker

Pranks of all sorts are hilarious! - beatles

8 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. - Britgirl

I love nonsense! It's so fun! - keyson

9 Toilet Humor

Yesh, I'm immature, but this is my type of 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 - JaysTop10List

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! " - Britgirl

10 Innuendo

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

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

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"

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

13 Cornball

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