  3. 447. What is this, British Humour? (with Amber Minogue) | Luke’s ENGLISH Podcast

    What is British Humour? Is it funny? Does it even exist? How does it relate to our communication style and culture? In this episode I go through the main points of my British Council Teacher Talk about British Humour. Amber and I discuss the definition of British humour, the way it works, how it’s different or similar to other humour in other places, and some examples of typical humour in the UK.



    Last week I did a Teacher Talk at the British Council in Paris. Teacher Talks are when the BC invites guests to an event involving a talk on a specific topic and then drinks afterwards. All teachers are invited to talk at these events and this time I thought I’d have a go. The topic was completely up to me, so I chose to talk about British humour because it’s always something I’m thinking about and I thought it might also be a way to promote English language comedy in Paris.

    The talk was sold out and went well. I was hoping to upload the recording of the talk here but it’s not good enough. It just sounds very echoey and muffled. Next time I will mic myself up properly. So I’m not going to play the recording, which is a big pity because there were some moments of interaction with the audience and some funny things. But it’s just not clear enough on the recording so I’m not publishing it. The room at the BC where we do these talks is a big high ceiling place with mirrors on the back wall and high windows and walls so the sound bounces around a lot.

    Anyway, I’ve still got all the ideas in my head so I’m going to put them into this episode, recorded in the normal way. So, I went to Amber’s place and decided I’d discuss all the points in my talk with her, since I think she’s probably got some interesting things to say on the subject. We both have experiences of living in other countries and we both do stand up so we think about humour quite a lot.

    So you’re going to hear us attempting to answer questions like: what is British humour, what’s it like?, is it funny? Does it even exist? How does it relate to our communication style? What does it say about us as a culture?

    The main aim is just to describe and demystify humour in Britain. You’ll see that I don’t subscribe to the idea that British humour is somehow better than other forms of humour. In fact, in many ways it is very similar to humour in plenty of other places.

    But as I describe it here, just think about whether this kind of behaviour is likely to be found in the culture or cultures that you know, and consider the role that humour plays in people’s daily lives where you are from. You might notice differences or similarities.

    Let’s now go to Amber’s place and get to the bottom of this.

    Main points covered:

    British Humour doesn’t exist

    OK, it does exist, but we don’t really use any different types of humour than anyone else. We don’t have a monopoly on humour or anything, but we do value it highly.

    British Humour isn’t funny

    It’s not always designed to make everyone laugh. Instead, humour is used in our interactions to avoid being too serious, keep things light and make you seem like a normal person.


    This means making fun of yourself. It’s a bit of a crime to take yourself too seriously in the UK, so people make fun of themselves to show that they’re not above everyone else.


    This is where you make a strong statement sound less strong. E.g. “It’s raining outside is it?” “Yeah, just a bit”

    Deadpan delivery

    This is where humourous statements are delivered with a straight face, making it hard for some people to notice that a joke has happened.


    This is where you say one thing but you mean the opposite. It’s used for insults, for disappointments or to make fun of everything in general.

    Dara O’Briain - "Live At The Theater Royal" (Dara O’ Briain Live 2006 Stand Up Full)

    Sound is loud so either turn down YouTube volume or System volume

    Irish comic/presenter captured live at the Theatre Royal in London. Dara O’Briain is the Irish comic seemingly omnipresent on the panel show circuit including ‘Mock The Week’ and the chaotic improv rodeo ‘Whose Line is it Anyway’. The acerbic wit and massive intelligence he’s known for there are on full display in his stand up show.

  7. David Nihill: “Do You Talk Funny?” | Talks at Google

    David Nihill has walked—and talked—in your shoes. The Irish-born author went from being deathly afraid of standing in front of an audience to hosting a business conference, regularly performing stand-up routines, and winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses.

    He did it by learning from some of the world’s best public speakers: stand-up comics. In what doesn’t sound like the best plan ever, David decided to overcome his fears by pretending to be an accomplished comedian called "Irish Dave" for one full year, crashing as many comedy clubs, festivals, and shows as possible. One part of the plan was at least logical: he was already Irish and already called Dave.

    David joins us to share the principles of stand-up comedy and how they can be applied to all public speaking.

    This talk was moderated by Chet Haase.
