What the French Find Amusing

Wondering what the French find amusing and how they joke around? Explore French humor and find out what’s appropriate in both the workplace and in social situations.

The French tend to be self-deprecating—although, like most people, they'd rather not be laughed at, but rather laughed with. Learn more about what the French currently consider amusing and review how to engage in suitably appropriate humor in business and social settings.
