    British humour is inexplicably intertwined with British culture, and the English language (as spoken in the British Isles). Therefore, in order to truly grasp British English, one must be able to understand basic British humour! Join me as I explain... British Humour!

I like using italian suppositories. I don't do dirty graphic comedy, I much prefer to intimate what's happening rather than spell it out. I set my jokes up to speak for themselves. And it's the Italian suppository that serves as set up or punchline. Never both.

After watching a bunch of British comedies I would add that British find awkward social situations funny. For example, there are three people at a party. The one in the middle knows the other two, but the other two only know the one in the middle. Then the one in the middle has to go to the bathroom and leaves the other two alone. The awkwardness of the two remaining persons trying to carry on a conversation will usually get all the laughs tracks from that scene.

British humour is clever, complicated, and extremely subtle, may I recommend watching stuart Lee's pirate letter joke. I can guarantee you won't find it remotely amusing.

British love their cup of tea, but spell British with one T. And their humour is clever, but never cleaver.

Nice points but as a brit, I feel it necessary to point out how the table of what we say and mean is incorrect. The part "That's not bad" really means it is bad sarcastically but foreigners see it as us saying it's good

When I tell a joke nobody gets it, not because the joke is too subtle but because generally people in serbia don't joke in such a way :(

You're incorrect about your explanation of why British comedy is the way it is vs American comedy. British comedy is bred out of personal insecurity and bad weather. You can thank your government and the geography for those issues, son. The maximization of individual freedom breeds confidence. The suppression of individual freedom lessens confidence and brings people down.

Braylon you're trying to put lipstick on a pig mate. American humour is low brow, simple and obvious whereas Brit humour is witty,quick, multi layered. The difference between grown up humour and infantile humour

Why the fuck do british are so proud of their sarcasm jokes? Aren't that a basic jokes? Even in my elementary school when i was little its like a basic joke. Btw im Indonesian. Maybe the brit uses it a bit further? I mean in my country sarcasm only used if the general knowledge is common or the characteristics is common and popular, so if we talk the opposite with a slight different tone everyone knows its a sarcasm. Maybe the brits always takes it a bit too much, and thus makes sarcasm a bit confusing.

It is commonplace to use, and hear the words balls, crap, tit, pillock, shit... none of which are swearing and often used to comedic effect or emphasis. The further north you go the more likely what is considered swearing elsewhere becomes normal like c**t, b***h and several others will be used in commonplace language.

@Olwen Morgan well you should because British sense of humor causes lots of misunderstandings when dealing with foreigners. We just get the wrong idea, maybe you're being friendly and we receive the wrong information and think you're being mean when it's not your intention and neither is ours. I would like to understand British people better.
