German Comedy Lessons

I just flew in from Berlin, and boy are my arms tired. (ba dum bum). Oh, how fun it is to make fun of the German sense of humor (and/or lack thereof). But it turns out that German cities like Berlin have a burgeoning standup culture, and a new type of comedy class is offering them ways to sharpen their wit.

Dunno. I know a couple of Germans and they’re pretty funny. Not Jon Stewart funny, but they get a good joke. That said, having traveled to Germany, I don’t recall there being a culture of humor there as prominent as it is here. But, hey, it always more fun to generalize about an entire culture for a good laugh. Something perhaps the Germans are now learning.
