Sense of humour in Dominican Republic

Hello everyone,

Should we set out to explore Dominican’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 Dominican Republic?

Is it acceptable to joke about any situations?

What is typically funny and what is absolutely not funny?

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

What is the funniest joke you have heard in Dominican Republic?

Please share your experience,


Dominican humor is for me pretty stupid. They find body humor, sexual  and bathroom humor to be hysterical.

Just watch their "variety" shows and you will see.   

However, a sense of humor is mandatory to living here!

Hmm...I think that means I'm Dominican!
