I was watching this Maadeeys show based out of Mogadishu, the shoe is basically a rip off "Last Man standing",.

After a while it came to me that we Somalis basically SUCKS in the Comedy department and are not naturally funny people or good at jokes.:wow:

Any way later on I have realized that this is actually a Good thing since this proofs we are not Negr0s since we suck at many of their traits such us dancing,sex and now comedy :mjlol::pachah1:

Really though, I haven't seen any good Somali stand up comedy that make you laugh even for a once, recommend one if you do.:banderas:

Most of the once I have seen are either the joke is too long and then on top of that it comes with a weak punchline, this is why these wanna be stand up comedians got rejected by these three judges.:francis:

I kind feel bad for the Bantu guy in the beginning ,walahai,after all that throwing hands and weird.forced movements at 6:10 no one even smiled.:dead::deadmanny:

There’s different types of humour. I think Somalis are good at dark humour.

Seriously though, I think the Somali language is the common demonetiter here, I have some Somalis doing stand up comedy of other languages besides Somali and some were pretty funny.

Watch this starting at 3:00. You’ll see what I mean. Somalis are funny.

Lamagoodles are funny, remember watching Gafaney (RIP, a former comedian who passed away more than a decade ago).

Stand-ups are dumb concepts anyway. Humor has to be contextual, with some scenery.

Not a dude standing and talking about his miserable life.
 
Title is misleading, not all Somalis suck at comedy. Somalians are not funny, however, Landers have a great sense of humor and have some great skits
