Your style is...Self-defeating humor

Your style is...Self-defeating humor

Amy Schumer or Hannibal Buress is a perfect example of this style. They've got this "poor me" vibe that makes you feel sorry for them while laughing your butt off. It's a little bit of Schaudenfraude on your part, but hey...it's funny!

Your style is...Aggressive humor

Your style is...Aggressive humor

This is the kind of humor Joan Rivers and Bill Burr uses. It's goal is to put-down or point out a flaw in someone or something. It's the kind of humor bullies use where it's funny for everyone watching but not the people it's targeting. Though they may laugh out of discomfort...

Your style is...Self-enhancing humor

Your style is...Self-enhancing humor

This is the kinda humor where you are using yourself as an example. Finding the "funny" in your own life in hopes that it relates to others is a perfect example of self-enhancing humor. Comedians like Jon Stewart will often use this style and say things like "maybe I'm crazy, but—". Kinda poking fun at himself in hopes it relates to the audience.

Your style is...Affiliative humor

Your style is...Affiliative humor

Jerry Seinfeld is a perfect example of the Affiliative humor style. It's the kind of humor that brings people together and create a sense of community. Like "Have you ever noticed that—" or "Isn't it funny how—". If you prefer jokes about common occurrences and animals, affiliate is exactly our kinda humor.
