I always found anime to be a lot funnier than American cartoons. Futurama/family guy/archer/bobs burgers/etc. just never seemed very funny to me

Every episode of Baka Test had me laughing. Futurama left me bored as shit

Jaxson James

one piece made me laugh pretty hard many times
anything visual comedy is almost void of language barries, that's probably why osomatsu san works too with subs for most of their skits

Luke Martin

99% of western cartoons are shit
you gotta watch the good stuff
like the life and times of Tim

Brandon Edwards

It is both but the same can be said for western comedy. Most western comedy is shit, especially modern western comedy.

Remember the Big Bang Theory is considered one of the funniest shows airing and of all time.

Jaxson Fisher

Cultural differences. Putting aside Japan specifically, you should expect a lot of difference in humour across regions. Watch some French cartoons and realize how wrong America and Japan both are.

Luis Smith

This. American comedy is shit tier. Futurama, South Park, Family Guy? Probably laughed 3-4 times at these shows back when I still watched TV. American comedy movies are even worse: I can't think of a single one that made me laugh. And worse still are american stand-up comedians. They are so fucking bad.

The only places that I know of that produce content that's actually funny once in a while that I know of are the UK, France and Quebec.

Japanese stuff is about on par with American stuff, at best it'll get a "heh" out of me.

Nathan Hernandez

Leela ruined the show, just like that cloud shit from a Regular Show ruined its show, why everything always have to turn into shippershit, that's why anime is better, you don't have to deal with shipperfags.

Is it just cultural difference or do Americans suck at comedy?

I never got the whole joke have anime parodies talking like old Asian stereotypes in broken english. If anything, dubs tend to be over localized and everyone talks like Americans

Japanese "nerd" comedy > American "nerd" comedy.

Animes more honest and truthful about how it makes fun of otaku culture with stuff like Comiket, idol stuff, etc. American Comedy still think stuff like Star Trek is relevant or big blockbuster superhero movies and Call of Duty is nerdom. You'll probably never see jokes about bronies jacking off to ponies, or deviantART fetishes. 2ch is portrayed pretty accurately in anime but Sup Forums is generally treated as some kind of hacker terrorist super Secret website in sestern shows.

Gavin Rivera

Christopher Lee
Christopher Lee

those retards who try to act like their taste in comedy is somehow objectively superior
probably has a power level of around ten shows and now considers himself an expert, just like most people who make sweeping generalizations about the writing in the medium

Also, to some degree, this. Japanese and English are extremely different languages, and things inevitably get lost in translation between the two, even assuming that you have a good translator who knows what he's doing.

This isn't a constant, though. Plenty of jokes translate just fine, especially if translator is competent at both Japanese and creative writing.

Owen Bennett

Ixion Saga was funny.

David Baker

Most of anime comedy is "absurdity happens and character overreacts to it"
I'll give it to you on puns/wordplay, I've never been big on them though, and I imagine japanese puns wouldn't make me laugh aswell.

Gabriel Gomez

Boku no Kanojo ga Majime Sugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken is basically a bokke tsukkomi comedy ... I enjoy it, its just bad when the timing is off or when have to point out what the joke is.

El Chavo and El Chapulín Colorado are shit, dude, every episode is filled with the same damn joke, and each show has like, 200 episodes

I like some shows from Derbez even if they are hit-or-miss

Also in american comedy, Nathan for You is pretty damn underrated

Brody Brooks
Brody Brooks

It's hard to translate certian things though, Japanese is a comedy language, it has a lot of wordplay and puns that will always get lost in translation, like for example Bakemonogatari and other Nisioshit works are heavy on these wordplay and puns.

Dylan Fisher

I really do miss Married With Children. Grew up watching it as a kid and would watch it any chance I got when I caught it on TV in my teen years. Wonderful show.

Now I haven't watched a show that I found consistently and genuinely hilarious since Chappelle's Show and that was over a decade ago.

No.

Don't speak spanish and I don't know the culture very well, so that's completely lost on me.

South Park is "heh" tier. I divide humor into "shit", "unfunny", "heh", "good", "great", "oh god I'm dying" tiers.

Their stand-up comedians are (or at least were, haven't been keeping up in the past few years) pretty funny. Their movies were hit or miss, usually hits though.

Any suggestions, ya cunt?

Am I the only one that finds comedy on Sup Forums, and in internet drama, youtube videos, etc. far more hilarious than anything that has been actually scripted and produced professionally?

The shit that emerges from this site, along with the implied absurdity of it all, sometimes has me laughing so hard I can't fucking breathe. This hasn't changed in the 9 years since I first started browsing. You faggots are genuinely hilarious at times.

Japanese "nerd" comedy is written by Japanese "nerds".

American "nerd" comedy is written by hipsters being ironic. Fuck, watching Big Bang Theory is frustrating for how little they know about the topics I do understand, and how little I know about the topics I don't. I can only assume the laugh tracks are there in order to prevent you from thinking about a subject long enough to realize that they didn't research it.

American "nerd" comedy is written by hipsters being ironic.

Sit down and shut up. The Big Bang Theory isn't written by hipsters - it's written by comedy veterans, mostly older men who have worked with its creator, Chuck Lorre, before. That's why it feels inaccurate, condescending, etc.

Try watching something that isn't written by a bunch of middle age Hollywood hack writers who just want to get home to their wife and 3 kids.

Cultural difference.

Western comedies are usually pretty garbage. Some sitcoms are pretty good sometimes, like How I Met Your Mother, Always Sunny, etc.
Archer, Venture Bros, some of those are alright.

Family Guy makes me cringe, as does Bob's Burgers and American Dad. All garbage. Futurama is hit or miss.

2ch is portrayed pretty accurately in anime but Sup Forums is generally treated as some kind of hacker terrorist super Secret website in sestern shows
while CSI and Law and Order make me chuckle they're supposed be taken more seriously. they're dramas. the reason Sup Forums is portrayed as such is because the writers only source on it is the news

Ryder Thomas
Ryder Thomas

Something like that. It was cancelled because Dave didn't want to only do jokes that the higher-ups wanted him to do, mainly black jokes. Along the lines of
it's okay for black people to insult blacks
it's okay for asians to insult asians
it's okay for women to insult women
If that makes sense. They mainly wanted him to do skits about black people, primarily, IIRC.

All in the Family was amazing. So was The Jeffersons--even in the same universe.

I've noticed that "comedy" these days involves shock humor, basically how far you push the boundaries = how "funny" it is.

Don't get me wrong when I was a 13 year old faggot I used to laugh so hard at movies like Super Bad and Pineapple Express, but in hindsight its fucking retarded.

You can understand that over a period of time, the constant pushing of boundaries is bad for society and will lead to unimaginable depravity in the future. Sort of like the political slippery slope.

Big Bang theory is written by old people for old people. People who would actually get the references are not the target audience of the show, it is for people who think hearing funny words like star wars, anime, warcraft and video games.
Core joke is Sheldon as Asperger BUT HE DOESN'T GUY WE SWEAR!
Insert as much references as possible because they sound funny
Like every other shit Chuck lorre shows lets bring in two more women so we can do the whole women are secretly retarded but smug bitches who are always right and hate sex while the men are sex crazed retards. Thats always been funny
Sex is the main joke

the constant pushing of boundaries is bad for society and will lead to unimaginable depravity in the future.
I completely agree with you. It isn't just in shows, it's culture in general. Like the LGBT rights movement going on.

Soon it'll be required that anyone can go in any bathroom and lockerroom whenever they want. Gays got their rights, now trannies need theirs, whats next? Women pushing to be able to go topless anywhere they want, men getting sent to prison because they had drunken sex, society is coming to an end. In 10-20 years I can't imagine what the next movement will be.

Mandatory castration day maybe.

No, I was stating a fact.
And no, most the people who support Trump are closet racists, the south, or the older generation.

Are you sure about that? I remember seeing the older people supporting the cuckservative candidates.

Trump has great appeal with the young generation contrary to the myth of him being popular only with "old white males".

You know there are right wing youth as well so Bernie doesn't have a monopoly over this generation.

Do you guys live in a bubble or something? Haven't you seen enough of the failures of socialism around the world to at least know that Bernie was spouting bullshit? Clinton is a boring, safe choice compared to Trump and Bernie's extreme ideologies.

Japanese comedy relies much more on cliches and wordplay/puns, while western comedy is more shock value or randomness.

There are exceptions depending on the medium for both though.

Although I enjoy both, I laugh much more at western comedies than anime comedy. But I can agree with the sentiment that most western comedies are garbage.(But you can say that about any genre/media)

Anyone here who watches live action japanese comedy anyway? Is it similar to anime?

it's seriously lost a lot of its flavor. since /tv/ humor started dominating this site a few years back, there's nothing really original anymore. the latest trend of ironically using black twitter lingo is probably the lowest point of this website's culture.

You are comparing classic Japanese comedy
Wordplay and cliches are extremely common in any comedy ever from Japan. It's the basis of their comedy.
Does it have shock value and randomness? Yes, most comedies around the world have it. But it isn't the core of their comedy.

yah but that's just harping on nostalgia from a time when mods were unpredictable. nothing new, sadly.

can anyone name 1 thing in the past 4-5 years that came from Sup Forums that wasn't ephemeral/pounded into the ground a la big guy 4u.

weren't tim and eric responsible for the switch to live action [as]? i was 15 when [as] first aired, and i remember loving sgc2c, athf, sea lab, and home movies. not sure if i'd really like any of those shows on rewatch (i have a feeling sgc2c would probably still hold up); they were definitely a product of their times, but they were still novel in what they were doing. i'm sure like most novel things, they shit the bed after the first 3 or 4 seasons. i haven't [as] in forever, but from what i see it's king of the hill and american dad blocks all night.

Well, I'm arguing in favor to the argument that japanese and western comedy is not that diffeent, especially in modern times due to cultural syncretism (logically)

Since we're comparing two cultures, it's only fair that we explore the history of said cultures In order to establish a pattern, don't you think?

Brody James

Something I've observed a lot on anime/manga with gags is that there seems to be a character that needs to explain the joke right after it happens. Generally, it is the same character that punches the person who made the joke in first place.

I hate it when it happens, it's like an annoying version of the laugh track. Why would you point at the joke? I blame it on nippons liking boke and tsukkomi routines so much.

Cameron Ramirez
Cameron Ramirez

Tyler Peterson

AD is funnier than any anime comedy ever but when I think about it, they have some similarities. AD has more puns and tsukkomi-esque exchanges than most western comedy.

I don't expect to understand Japanese puns but still, I can't imagine them ever being as funny as the seaward or anustart.

But the establishment of both cartoons for the west and east happened during the 90s. Sure, there are some classics for each before then, but the boom happened in the 90s and early 00s where they established their identity.

Of course the series before the 90s shaped how cartoons were defined later on, but drastic turns have been taken since.
