l'm coufused why people would laugh at those people falling down streets,which sometimes i would do.hah.l mean Should be a help instead?
and l really like those movies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz etc.not very funny,but incredibly interesting.
So what types of humor do you like?
Hello Anna W:
I do not know what "Shaun of the Dead" is.
I do not know what "Hot Fuzz" is.
I like all kinds of humor. However, not all comedians are "funny" to me.
Some are exemplary of people who habitually need to appear "cute" when they are hardly cute at all.
It can also be true that there are comedians that I generally enjoy, who offer a performance that
is not funny at all.
Also, comedy routines are rather a "mechanized" affair. Comedians generally perfect their routines by appearing in comedy clubs in cities everywhere, and each time, doing the same routines over and over, with the occasional change and addition of material.
I do enjoy, on occasion, "Mr. Bean" who is Rowan Atkinson a British comedian.
Also some Comedians offer material that get's "old".
Some comedians choose to employ sexual humor, in which they suppose it funny to speak in graphic terms about genitalia. This falls into the classification of "Potty Humor". I would observe that perhaps a 9 year old child might find it stimulating to hear a Four-Letter word for a body part, but I hardly find that it stimulates laughter at all for me.
When you mentioned people falling down, I think that is referred to as "Slapstick Comedy".
I do not think that is constantly funny either. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
It is very natural to see other people are embarrassed perhaps because that can balance the feeling. When someone is trapped, embarrassed or frustrated, that seems suggest the witness is not implicated . That is positive side of comedy in contribution to regular people.
Thanks for your opinion.
the cute villain Gru in Despicable Me might be a representative of who you mentioned as appear"cute".l like Mr.Bean too,he is nice,and always have a moutain of luck.
