I don't find american humor funny, when I watch "america's funiest homevideo's" for example there is nothing to laugh at because the "jokes" made by that presenter are just plain stupid! But the audience seems to find it funny... Same goes for almost all other american programs, TV serials and movies. Whats so funny about "i came to work and everybody was looking at me, i then realised that i forgot my pants" hahahaherrrrrrr.... I find british humor far better and it probally is the best humour in the world? If you ever watch a british TV serial ('Allo 'Allo, mum it aint half so hot here, etc.) you will laugh your pants off! its just so damned funny! british humour pawns american humor by far! What are your opinions on american/british/ -insert random country here- humor?

i find george w. bush funny. ... btw there are some pretty funny movies... really good ones... and there's this funny late-night-show-moderator (forgot his name) ... so there are pretty funny things in the US actually. including the president. and comedians.

first, America's funniest home videos is not funny, just dumb.

It depends on what you are watching...if it is somebody like Robin Williams, then you are laughing so hard you cant breathe, but if is something like friends, you would rather watch the weather channel. Humor is rare in the US.

usually because it was taped in front of a live audience my thoughts = monte python and mel brooks rule! there are more, but those are the ones that popped into my little brain.
