Best of all if you can laugh at yourself, laugh with others rather than at them and not take yourself too seriously, people will like you more I reckon. Just my opinion.
Totally agree. Humour is needed to de-stress and is a good healthy outlet.

Re: Sense of humour?

If I hadn't developed my own sense of humour,who knows how I would feel today.

Humour is a very important part of my life,..especially being around like minded people,as I was yesterday,..we were all in hysterics!.

Re: Sense of humour?

My Dad was the funniest person I've ever known. Probably just crazy but really funny.

I don't understand why people laugh at clowns, they're sinister, so are ventriloquists dummies, not funny at all.

Has anyone else got a "go to" film that always makes them laugh and cheers them up?
I put, "The Burbs", "The Money Pit" or "Pink Panther" movies on, Jim Carey films too are daft.

My Dad used to love watching "Road Runner". I remember him being in fits of laughter.

I have never found clowns or ventriloquist funny,but then I don't find any comedian on tv funny.

Just different strokes for different folks.

Re: Sense of humour?

My sense of humour keeps me going, I am a bit immature at times and can laugh at toilet humour.

We need humour to help us through life or at least I do.

I think it's good to be able to laugh at ourselves too.

Re: Sense of humour?

You lot make me laugh.

No ... seriously folks, I'm only here for the fun of it all.

.... the funny bits, light-hearted chat, that's me. Could never understand why there's so much religion & politics on this type of forum. But, if nothing else, it gives balance ... better than total funny bits, I guess.

I agree Lion Queen - there is humour to be had in most things because life can be so ridiculous at times! They do say that laughter is the best medicine and indeed it is.

Re: Sense of humour?

I must have a warped sense of humour. Sorry if going off topic a little with this post. I know we are talking about our own sense of humour.

With sincere apologies to our American friends on here, no offence intended but I have to admit I enjoy very few American comedies, although they have done some really good classics in the past such as Mash, Friends and Frankie & Grace on Netflix. Especially offputting when watching an American comedy on tv is when anything funny is uttered, in they come with the canned audience laughter. Groan!
On the plus side, they have made some excellent comedy films, and there is nothing to compare with their action films. (even if the special effects have been done by mostly British companies!)

As for British humour - I still watch again and again - Only Fools and Horses and Faulty Towers, and have enjoyed the series just finished recently - Mum.
I'm afraid the lefty comedy, which I believe they called Alternative Comedy- with the likes of Ben Elton and Jo Brand, was a complete turnoff for me. I failed to find one single moment of humour in their type of comedy
Not even meriting a smile, never mind making me laugh.

My brother often phones me to say, "Don't forget to watch "Mrs Brown", Yuk, I don't find him funny at all.

Help! do you think it's because I've morphed into an ageing old fart, that it's me that doesn't have a sense of humour any longer, or is it just that comedians and comedy just aren't as funny anymore?
