What’s So Funny? Using International Comedy to teach International Organizational Behavior Concepts

View File

Humor is said to be culturally determined. What one considers funny in one culture may or may not be funny in another. Humor is embedded in the cultural context of the individual telling the joke. By better understanding the cultural context of the humor, we develop a deeper understanding of the culture from which the humor originates. In this session, we will view videos clips of comedians, movies and tv shows from around the world. Come & watch and/or bring & share the name of your favorite comedy or comedian from another country.
