Oh, ok, thanks for the info. But yeah, as I said I don't fully disagree, but it doesn't need to be true as it's not a study, but just a survey.

I thought at first US shows being more likely to air internationally than other shows and people knowing English in more countries, would expose them to more US comedy than other countries, but if that were true UK would've come higher. I'd like to know how many from each country there were though. It's just a survey though it's not meant to be taken seriously doesn't mean it isn't true though. The Germans are unfunny steryotype probably has a lot to do with it, as it crosses boarders, but might have some truth to it since it's so widespread.

The article is about people, though, not shows or comedians. It was a global poll, not just a US one. Humor comes to us Americans quite naturally. :D Now a word from one of America's greatest comedians and novelists, Mark Twain: "A German joke is no laughing matter."
