It’s no secret that humour is one of the most difficult aspects of a
second language to understand and master, but that shouldn’t stop you
A good place to start is with Jerry Seinfeld. He’s an American comedian,
actor, writer and producer and is perhaps best known for his long-running
TV sitcom, or situational comedy, called Seinfeld. The show ran on
American TV from 1989 until 1998 and it’s widely accepted to be the most
popular American sitcoms ever.
As a Brit, my taste in humour tends more towards British sitcoms than
American ones. But a show I’ve been watching a lot recently is a series
called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The premise is that Seinfeld
chooses a special classic car, picks up a famous comedian in the car,
and together they go and drink coffee and have a conversation.
I love cars, coffee and comedy. So, for me, it’s the perfect show. Some
of my favourite episodes so far have been with English comedian, and
star and creator of The Office, Ricky Gervais, Eddie Murphy, Alec
Baldwin, Sarah Jessica Parker (from Sex in the City), Jim Carrey and
The episodes are quite short, about 20 minutes, and the vibe of the
conversations is very informal and laid-back. Season one came on air in
2012 and to date, the last season was created in 2019.
I think you should give Seinfeld a try to see if you like him and if you
can understand the humour. He uses a lot of observational comedy which
is based on the commonplace aspects of everyday life. A similar
observational comedian is Larry David who actually co-wrote the Seinfeld
series together with Jerry.
