Looking at Germany from its humorous side, offers many facets. It ranges from professional practical jokes, which plays status against the newest silliness, through to the classic good joke.
Here`s a small choice:

Most popular collections of jokes

Single "victims"

  • Soccer players: a small collection of their comments when they talk to journalists
  • Ostfriesen: The rest of Germany makes jokes about some island in the very north of Germany. And now a taster:
    -> Why don't Ostfriesen eat pickles?
    ->-> Because they can't get their head in the glass...
  • Blondes: Taster:
    -> How can you make a blonde laugh on a Monday morning?
    ->-> By telling her a joke on Friday morning!
    This is one example of a joke from the category "blonde jokes". If you'd like to here more, there is a whole selection on the Internet. Here's a selection: collection of Triwedata
  • Tongue twister: Fischers Fritze fischt frische Fische - frische Fische fischt Fischers Fritze.... Speech acrobats from all over watch out! Here is the tongue twisetr page (Zungenbrecherseite).

Comics

Germany's youthful fun staff

Germany's classic fun staff, here a few examples

  • Loriot: Willkommmen in der heilen Welt. On this graphically good homepage from Loriot, many insights into the state of the German soul are guaranteed!! But be careful: Bring a large shopping trolley with you - behind this is a hidden commercial offer!
    By the way: Our favourites are the (two) DVD's (Link to amazon.de) and the CD "Loriots Klassiker"
  • Otto (Waalkes) and the Ottifanten
  • Heinz Erhard: Unfortunately there isn't good stuff about this 60's comedy star on the Internet
    As a taster here is a small quotation: "Das Reh springt hoch, das Reh springt weit, warum auch nicht, es hat ja Zeit." ("the deer springs high, the deer springs far, why not, it has time" okay, this poem is not translateable ;-) ). And the poem "Die Made".
  • Gerhard Polt - the original from Bavaria.
  • Helmut Qualtinger: the multi talent from Vienna: actor, Cabarets, singer, solo performer Latest when he performed his one-man play "Der Herr Karl" - a deep look in the Austrian soul - in New York in the year 1963, he was characterized as "the enemy of Gemütlichkeit" and made his humour unforgettable. Here is his Portrait.
  • Martin Buchholz (-> a short portrait )
  • further artists: Dieter Hildebrandt, Die Stachelschweine, Frankfurter Fronttheater, Matthias Belz, Erwin Pelzig ...
