Does anyone else that’s autistic not understand comedy? My boyfriend wants to go to a comedy show (Bill Burr) and he said that I don’t get comedy. I like funny movies, but a lot of jokes go over my head or what other people find funny I don’t.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
I don't get comedy at all
me, even if it’s a dad joke i don’t get it until like minutes later I genuinely can’t tell what it’s about sometimes
I cant tell when someone is joking with me or being serious
YES! i’m there with you. i nearly cannot for the life of me understand most peoples jokes or find them actually funny.
although, i did find a comedian on tiktok who is autistic and in my opinion he is hilarious. his name is rian d reyes if you wanted to check him out! not that this is helpful to your current situation!!! sorry!!!
My sense of humor is entirely made up of extremely obscure references and borderline abusive levels of inappropriately placed sarcasm.
I don't get stand up comedy, and there are certain kinds of comedy I just don't like. It's not that I don't understand the jokes, it's just that I don't find them funny. My sense of humor is just different.
Some stand up comedy I get along with memes, dad jokes, and inside jokes that I made between people. But if it's a joke I've never heard before I won't understand it unless someone explains why it's funny.
I do act like I get a joke though even if I don't as I've been told it's weird I don't laugh at how funny this is. I mask pretty hard and now I'm trying to not mask so it's been a challenge trying to figure out what's funny about a joke.
