Rakugo requires cultural understanding. Rakugo is also an older style of comedy, which draws on historical culture and stories. Most Japanese don't even find rakugo funny. You need to have some background, study and experience in Japanese culture before being able to understand Rakugo.

I'm South African and my favourite comedians are Leon Schuster and Trevor Noah. I've shown their material to my Australian friends and they don't get it at all, because they haven't lived in South Africa.

I also enjoy playing Europa Universalis 4 and watch the meme videos online. I find them funny because I get the situations, but anyone who hasn't played EU4 won't get it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jY2O2F_-odQ

Rakugo is a meme. Japanese comedy is a meme. You won't get it if you don't understand the culture.

You're watching unfunny shows. They exist in your own culture as well. Japan has more than just Osakan stand up. In my opinion, the comedy Japan does best is subtle observational humor and parody.

>>
>>154922925

>Or maybe slapstick is so easy that it's hard to get wrong.
Yet Family Guy, American Dad, Robot Chicken and countless other shows do. Slapstick is actually tricky because it requires a setup and punch line without spoken dialogue. Most slapstick doesn't get a setup or punch line however and is just someone getting hurt. Which is funny the first time, then just stupid every time after that.

A pie in the face? That's mildly funny. A guy getting pied in the face, disembowled, dragged across a room by hooks, cut in half, thrown into a ringer then thrown in a toilet? A joke that never knew when to start or end.
>>
>>154922506
I am going to generalize here, but Japanese female humour is a lot more "international". It's often based on silly faces and absurd situations in a otherwise serious settings, something everyone can enjoy. On the other hand male humour is a lot more Japanese: it's about manzai, something a lot of people here can't get, it's about violence on men, which gets tiring after a while, references.

This is about anime though. I'd say that /a/ should try to watch some genuine jap comedian and comedy movies, but I know a lot of westerners don't like Japanese acting.

I was just trying to make clear that he obviously isn't going to find funny things that aren't catered to him.

I've seen quite a few japanese films that pulled comedy off quite well, and that goes for many other foreign films. I'm not stupid enough to watch 'Daily Middle School Life of Cute-Girl-Chan Who Likes Egg Pudding And Battles Evil Egg Pudding Men' or whatever the fuck (which is obviously catered to a younger audience) and complaining that I don't find the humor funny.

Is this something which is really hard to comprehend or think about or make you ponder or fire your neurons?

British humor is usually the exact opposite of good. There's just a few notable exceptions. Try watching something beyond Monty Python and Are You Being Served. Most of their comedy shows are so dry, you don't even realize it's suppose to be funny.

As a side note, Working feels like a dry British workplace comedy. But the Japanese reaction shots and extreme characters make it actually work.

Not because he dresses funny or is British, but because he actually talks about things like history, economics and world events. It's just refreshing to see a comedian sometimes who can make a joke about something besides sex, cuss words and racism.

I've never met a black person that liked King of the Hill. To be honest I've never really met anyone that liked King of the Hill.

American sitcoms use real audiences as well. As much as people hate The Big Bang Theory, it has a live audience. The laugh track was mostly phased out in the 70s.

As a side note, this show reuses a fuck ton of American jokes.

You didn't imply anything of the sort. You just claimed someone else was American and then complained about laugh tracks, which I doubt you can come up with a show that uses one in the last 15 years.
>>
>>154924462
Credit where it's due most american sitcoms taped in front of live audiences don't use their "in moment" laughs (unless they're really good).

Generally you do multiple takes for scenes, either because someone flubs a line, the director has notes, or they want different angles/close ups (for single came mostly)

What happens is they have a comedian come out before the taping, he pumps up the crowd and tells jokes, they record the set and use it for the "laugh track"
>>
>>154924462
>The laugh track was mostly phased out in the 70s.
Haha tell that to disney channel.
>>
>>154924522

That was an old method. Used on shows like Home Improvement or Full House which had multiple sets (and wasn't very funny). But is not used much anymore. As amazing as it may seem, the laughter you are hearing on The Big Bang Theory is not canned. It is the actual laugh at the time. Though you kind of got it right that they will usually use the laugh the first time the joke is done. Since after 23 retakes, the audience won't laugh or clap again. They then edit in the audiences first reaction. You can all this 'cheating' if you want, but I assure you all your British sitcoms do the same thing.

Hi.

Anon from a southern state here. I love King of The Hill along with many people I know here in the south so it might just be us.

KoTH is funny because it is a well done satire on a person with strong traditional values and beliefs coping with a rapidly changing world that brings more "progressive" beliefs along with moral degradation e.g., comfortability with nudity, shifty business ethics, etc. It can be said that a great deal of these issues already existed of course, but it's not hidden as well and Hank has to deal with his experiences as a relic of an older time.

That said the characters are mostly relatable and realistic.

No it doesn't you moron, if you buy the DVDs they offer you the ability to turn the laugh track off, it is very much tacked on.

That being said anyone who argues about comedy is retarded. There's good American comedies out there like Seinfeld, Arrested Development, etc. Just as there is bad English comedy but this is all subjective as different comedies are made for different target audiences.

There are many anime/manga series I find funny, even laugh out loud hilarious, but when I really think about it none of them can compare to my favourite western comedies in terms of how clever and well executed the jokes are. I do think there's a big cultural barrier involved though. I can't really judge if a dialogue based joke is 'clever' without understanding the language. It'd probably be the same for them, even if we intellectually understand a joke, we won't necessarily find it funny without fully getting the context, cultural background, tone, etc. I'm looking through my /tv/ folder now and thinking there's no way nips could get these jokes no matter how good their English is.

>>154925620
If you're thinking of sitcom humour then I agree, but there's a lot of variety in the humour out there.

For me I think it's like, the best of the best western comedy > anime/manga comedy > average or worse western comedy.

>>154925764
I still think the best of Japanese comedy has something about it that can't be found in Western comedy.

>No it doesn't you moron
They have footage of them performing in front of a live audience

>if you buy the DVDs they offer you the ability to turn the laugh track off, it is very much tacked on.
See >>154924625

The studio audiences reaction is recorded on a separate track and added in later. This isn't the same as a 'laugh track' like you'd see on an episode of Beverly Hillbillies or Scooby Doo. With the audience reactions being on a separate track, it can be turned on and off. You could do the same thing to the actors audio if they gave you the option. It is also recorded separately from the visual.
>>
>>154925606

Sadly, Japanese audiences do need to be reminded. Because a lot of people don't start watching a show until multiple episodes in. And if you have a character where the joke relies on a personality trait they introduced in episode 1, then someone who started watching on episode 7 won't get it. This is the drawback to ongoing jokes and happens in non Japanese shows as well.

At the core of everything Japan does is the fervent desire to adhere to the familiar, the perfectly formulaic and predictable.

Repetition destroys comedic value.

90% of nip humor consists of puns and making fun of a single character trait
like

"haha that loser wears glasses"
"haha look how fat she is"

Too heavy reliance on puns

Example: guy is about to leave;

Probably a couple of reasons, but one big one comes to mind: explaining the joke. Characters can't do something stupid or funny without some other character pointing it out. "Oh look, he made a misunderstanding!", "Oh look, he fell down some stairs!". Yes, we saw, we get it. It could have been funny had you not slapped us with that in-the-face explanation.

It's not that they don't understand sarcasm, they just usually don't use it for comedic effect. Sarcasm is very commonly used to insult or criticize, especially when the social circumstances require a certain amount of deniability. Also, because of that, their sarcasm tends to be a lot less blatant than the American approach of "say the exact opposite of what you mean in a loud and drawn-out voice".

Psychologists often describe sarcasm as veiled anger/hostility. A culture adaptations varies among culture to culture.

Another reason is biological reasoning. In western culture, there's emphasis on facial features when conveying meaning. While facial features are a thing in eastern cultures, its not something that's placed an emphasis on. So when we make sarcasm, we use both our facial expression and our tone to denote a humorous way of looking at things. Btw, facial expression analysis difference between asian/western culture is noted in many studies. Asians tend to look at fuller picture, westerners tend to look at minute details.

Thirdly, the culture of respect is the norm in east asian culture. Sarcasm is very informal and often used in speech by the yakuzas/criminals/thugs in Japan. Just not general public or general public humor, unless they're pretending to be those types.

comedy is always referential in some way. you cannot tell a joke without without any cultural and social background. nothing is universally funny.

humor always works with breaking some sort of expectation the audience has. it plays with what is generally considered normal. a somewhat homogenous group of people is always required to tell joke. you cannot successfully tell a joke, if you aren't understood, not only in terms of a language barrier, but also in terms of cultural and social differences.

>>154936698
That's not really accurate. Ask anyone who's seen a lot of different media from different countries, and you can definitely feel a difference between them. Like, the UK is very different from the US, and South Korea is actually quite a bit different from China or Japan. The truth is, in a broad sense the countries that have the closest ties throughout history tend to share a similar (but not exactly the same) sense of humor.
>>
>>154936698
It can be widespread, if there is a homogenous audience. maybe "most other countries" share something in their cultural background, that makes the agree on something being funny.
btw I don't think it makes sense to set "most counties" against a single one like Japan. In an increasingly linked world, communities become more and more heterogenous and homogenous at the same time. wide parts of a society do not necessarily share the same cultural, religious or ideological background, therfore it becomes ncreasingly difficult to find a common ground to joke about in this societies. on the other hand the internet and especially the social networks make it easier to communicate with people around the world an establish a new foundation of humour that isn't bound to local cultural, historical etc. factors.
memes for example are funny to a specific group of people who can understand their implied meaning. memes go viral, when theri implied meaning becomes accesible for a growing group of people.
internet humor is dominatet by trends that are considered funny at some point and always reference some sort of content that can only be understood in some kind of shared background.
they are funny because hey are well understood and well known.

I do find Japanese humour overall less funny on average than both American and humour of my country, even though I have quite a lot of shows I enjoyed and thought were funny and I don't even hate boke-tsukkomi routines.
American/English humour I too find less funny that jokes I hear in my native language, but I think that divide has been less pronounced since I became better at English. Still though, I rarely actually outright laugh at foreign humour. It's more likely to be a chuckle and a smile. Humour in my native language has more of a chance to get a reaction. But yet I still was laughing out loud while reading "Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)" and I think I remember there being a ton of content I genuinely laughed at in Englsih, so it's obviously not a hard rule.
Overall, probably, I think almost every country has a kind of "specialty" in humour actually, such as irony in England, absurdism, puns and weird in-joke humour in Japan, black humour and harsh social satire in Russia, whatever the fuck you call American humour, etc. These specialties do not actually prevent any other kind of humour from being used, they're more what humour tends to get accepted there. Plus social barriers, which gut a ton of subtler jokes, precisely because they're actually kinda subtle.
As such jokes being less funny in another country is a combination of cultural illiteracy that kills the subtler jokes and shifted "style" of humour just being kinda hard to wrap your head around at times. The more in tune you are with culture of that nation, the more you will start to understand the humour, since humour is a social reaction too.
But yet even to full-on foreigners it still kinda connects, because if all else fails, good ol' "pie to the face" will get accepted everywhere. Plus, authors are people too, and they too have their own styles. Their cultural background will still colour their humour, but it's not like they're restricted to the "specialty".

mfw It took me forever to get the volcano joke in Yuyushiki and I´m not sure I fully get it even now.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxR_diKgoL8
At least part of the joke plays on かざん and おかあさん and´m still not getting the rest of it.
The dog joke in Joshiraku was gloriouisly random, too, but only indirectly a kanji -based one.

I think the problem is that you're looking for something in Japanese comedy that doesn't exist. It's not even the same kind of comedy that western is, even for their own culture. You guys are like someone going into a sushi bar and being confused when you can't get a hamburger. It's like, western comedy can have me rolling on the floor laughing, but only Nip comedy can make me smile.

>monty python is seen as being really low-brow and dumb in the UK.
Sounds like most British comedy. Monty Python actually had a lot more going on besides fish slapping and jokes about breasts. More than just satire. A lot of their jokes are actually mocking the rigid British society and the education system the Python's went through. You're right that a lot of people in America wouldn't get the 'So much for Pathos' joke. But neither would most people in Britain. It's an intelligent joke within a dumb joke. And as you can clearly see, the studio audience for Monty Python laughed the hardest at physical, low brow comedy.

Bad tsukkomi is like laugh track; if you remove it and the material doesn't get any worse, then it's a waste of time that could be used for something else like longer reaction or another gag to have a better pacing. A tsukkomi so obvious that anyone could make it is pretty much equal to adding a laugh track after a joke that is not funny at all, and unfortunately it works since the average viewer anywhere in the world doesn't have a good sense of humor.

Good tsukkomi is either something the audience doesn't realize by itself (eg. an explanation, comparison or reference) or something that is funny by itself (eg. reaction, acting). The delivery is as important as the material, and the cases that excel in both are really rare, especially in anime because humor doesn't sell BDs.

Tsukkomi is awful. Explaining the joke is known to be a fantastic way to kill a joke. Tsukkomi is basically just that but loud.

If you're a writer for TV and film, is actually kind of is. Any knowledgeable writer will tell you its actually harder to write comedy than drama.

This. Good tsukkomi is 99% about the timing. That's why Downtown's manzai was always so good. I mean Matsumoto could just get up on stage and tell one of his lelsorandumXD stories by himself but without Hamada there to slap his shit and point out the inconsistencies in his story with perfect timing it just wouldn't be funny.

They like his humor because he said a bunch of cuss words and got angry. They didn't get it beyond that. It's the same for any other comedian. Go to a Chris Rock stand up special and nobody laughs for 15 minutes. Then he starts to throw around 'nigger' and 'shit' all over and they start clapping and rolling in aisles. And 90% of the audience is white.

So does The Simpsons and Family Guy and most satire shows. But the shows still clearly lean liberal.
