Sense of humour in Denmark

Hello everyone,

Should we set out to explore Danish’s culture through its sense of humour? Indeed, if one is planning to settle in the country, it is best to understand the cultural codes governing humour in order to avoid any faux-pas.

What is special about the sense of humour in Denmark?

Is it acceptable to joke about any situations?

What is typically funny and what is absolutely not funny?

Are there any popular comedians in Denmark and how would one be able to discover them (stand-up shows, festivals, internet, etc.)?

What is the funniest joke you have heard in Denmark?

Please share your experience,

Bhavna

Humour is very dry with heavy use of sarcasm.

Don’t make fun of their tax and welfare system))

I don't agree. Danes jokes a lot about the social system. The trouble is that you maybe not understand the jokes before you are able to talk danish. But you could follow Simon Talbot when he makes a standup show. It is a lot danish humour. See him on youtube>>>.
