Can we guess your age based on your sense of humor?

There's no shame in laugh lines.

Some things will always be funny. Like pratfalls and whoopie cushions. Then again, perhaps you prefer a more sophisticated humor. You might like your comics to work clean. Others laugh harder at dark, crude stand-ups.

Television comedy has evolved over the decades, moving from slapstick to laugh-tracks to workplace humor to irony to cringe comedy. Because of that, we think we take a decent guess at your age based on how you answer the following ten questions.

So, from the makers of the popular "Can We Guess Your Age Based on Your Taste in Music," it's… "Can We Guess Your Age Based on Your Sense of Humor"! Tell us how we do. If we're wildly wrong, at least it'll be funny.


  1. These sitcoms were all critically panned. But what do critics know? They are also wildly popular. Which one is most likely to make you laugh?
  2. Pick a Grammy-winning comedy album.
  3. Who is the funniest character on 'Taxi'? If you have not seen the show, who looks the funniest? Also, you should remedy that and watch 'Taxi.'
  4. Who is the funniest physical comedian of this bunch?
  5. Speaking of Lucy… What was the funniest moment on 'I Love Lucy'?
  6. Who's a good boy? By which we mean: Who is the funniest cartoon dog?
  7. What is the funniest movie of all time — or at least the most deserving of the title?
  8. Two words: "Comedy duo." Which is your favorite?
  9. "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

  10. Finally, it's a simple question. Are the Three Stooges funny?

Can we guess your age based on your sense of humor?

They don't make 'em like Bob Hope anymore. Bob Hope was great... at reading cue cards.

Wrong again, I'll be 57 in 128 minutes.

Added 10 years to me. I did watch quite a bit of classic tv growing up though.

Great job! 51 and I'm 52. And yes, there's a real lack of original ideas these days!

You are 59 years old. Actually very close this time because I'm 56.

Underrated comics: The Beatles. Why can't celebrities be that witty anymore?
