You didn't include dark, or dry humor, which are my favorites. Also love satire

I think that's what I meant by Negative Sarcasm. But yes, I know that's a popular option. Thanks for sharing.

@Fibonacci1618
I don't think dark humor is necessarily sarcastic, and when I hear negative sarcasm I think more of people putting you down sarcasticly. I guess you meant more cynicism?

An example of what I think of as dark humor is that dark humor is like kids with brain cancer, it never gets old

another good example would be the stand up comedian John Steinberg. Check him out on YouTube if you like dark humor

@PolyComrade lol gotcha

Negative sarcasm is the closest descriptor in our choices, though I consider Carlin more "brutally honest."

Absolutely love him!

I was lucky enough to see him perform live shortly before his passing.

I have to say I like all kinds of humour except for Adam Sandler kind of stuff. I guess one'd call it 'stupid humour?'. It just never struck me as funny and was, therefore, pretty boring to me. Also, I find 'battle of the sexes' humour pretty yawn-inducing, these days.

Agreed. Juvenile humor is an offence to the intelligence.

That's a tough question..really it's a mix or blend of the above..but also the zany and surreal.. like Monty python etc

I like the Good Humor Man.
But seriously - if it's well written and well presented, it matters not which type. All have their place in the performing and written arts.
That said, I almost never appreciate crude, racist, or humor hurtful to a group of people. Whether it's Polish jokes or fart jokes, I'm not so likely to laugh.

Depends on my mood. Most days I love puns or dark humor.

No choice for all comedy. I like all comedy. Even the perverted, dark stuff.

Ditto, usually things I think but would never say out loud, to a room full of "friend"/associates. Real friends know just how bad I really am

@Fibonacci1618

Dark humour is like food...

... not everybody gets it.

Double entendres and logical paths that fail to go where they should

It depends on my mood. The only one I rarely like is slapstick.

Self deprecating.

When I just, it's usually self deprecated. I don't like speaking negatively of others. But truthfully, I'll laugh if someone else does and it's witty, not harsh

I wish their was a option of all of the above.

I wanted to get a feel for the spectrum of comedy. There's a few I omitted purposely.

Great word! Honestly, I had to look it up. One of my least favorite types of comedy personally, but that's for sharing!

Dark humor with a mix of witty and playful sarcasm is the best

Sounds pretty particular. Is there a particular comic or writer, or program you favor?

@Fibonacci1618 Well I follow certain people who are like so, like Candice Pool or some others. I really find this particular sense of humor with certain characters in movies one example is Blue Valentine. It's hard to find this mix. But I'll think about more and I'll hit you up with more. I have whole list in my mind I just need to remember the names and titles. Lolita, as contriversal at it is, she was very witty and sarcastic.

@sarahchan cool, lmk

The less swearing the better.

I do think most swearing takes away from the wit of the joke but I do like a good, placed swear word to exemplify the issue or point. Mostly in satirical comedy.

Which are Mr. Bean & AbFab?

Carin Level 7 Aug 10, 2018

I think that lands under slapstick

@Fibonacci1618 Noooo......

@Fibonacci1618 Monty Python too?

@Carin I think Monty Python is more Satirical. It's mocking both contemporary society and the freaks. I of course my be wrong.

We all want to be witty of course! We probably are sarcastic but who wants to admit that?
