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.

    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.
