    I prob wouldn't find that funny if I went camping, although the way you said that after saying how unfunny things are made me proper lol. Are we talking actual balls to face or just joking about it somehow??

    Like said before everyone has a different sense of humour! I’m usually in stitches watching Michael McIntyre and frankie Boyle and even worse watching celeb juice then my wife just looks at me like I’m strange. Big Bang theory is good but wouldn’t say funny, OP you must find something that’s funny and that you laugh at but it’ll be differant from what everyone else thinks

    Watch some Micky Flanagan, not with your children, or parents....

    Alan Partridge audiobooks are also great.

    I get the impression the OP wasn’t really after a debate as to what comedies people find funny, but more about his lack of a reaction to most of the things people find funny.

    I am probably the same in all honesty. The vast majority of stuff people find funny, I barely raise an eyebrow. I always put it down to being a grumpy git. Weird thing is I seem to make other people laugh but I’m not actually trying to. I guess it’s just my outlook on life. Not depressed, quite happy in fact. Just hard to make laugh I guess. Weird thing is I always have a laugh when out with mates.

    Good grief I don't find either funny but that is a hell of a statement, you deserve a prize for that.

    Anyway OP, I don't mean to offend but in the past I had 5 students with aspergers and I never heard them laugh.
    Could you be on the spectrum?

    I find panel show interactions more funny more than stand up now.

    Sean Lock on panel shows (not his stand up though).
    Miles Jupp with Sean Lock.
    David Mitchell ranting.

    My humor tends towards dark, rude and sarcastic. So the likes of Frankie Boyle, Jimmy Carr, Ricky Gervais etc

    Can't say I find much on the telly/movies funny. They either try too hard (see marvel movies) or it's just stale because of the PC brigade. Earlier TV from the 70s and 80s was better. the likes of Only Fools, Porridge etc

    Now I'm laughing because that made me think of the Cobra Kai series:
    Hawk: "My doctor said I might be on the spectrum."
    Jonnie: "I don't know what that is, but get off it."

    Definitely a few moments in that series that made me laugh.

    Throwing the Houses of Parliament broadcasts into the mix -
    No longer funny/eloquent, just a sad childs playground, worse than web behaviour - (per Lou Reed) stick a fork in them, turn them over - they're done.

    I love Milton Jones. I remember one of the first times I saw him on tv, I was at home with my parents in Sweden and we were watching BBC International or Entertainment or what it was called. They showed an episode of Comedy Road Show or live at Hammersmith. Without a word Milton got my mum laughing her head off. He came onto the stage with his usual loud shirt and crazy hair, to the old disco song "Hot Stuff" :D

    I once dated a German policewoman. All she ever said was nein nein nein.
