Danish humour vs. US. humour
The series 'Langt Fra Las Vegas' is really funny. At least seen from a Dane's viewpoint. I always laugh at the overly grossed and perverted Buckingham, the inexplainably stupid Robert Dølhus, the unfortunate but always charming Kenny Nickelmann and all the others. The show was made in Denmark, by Danes, to be viewed by Danes and naturally the humour would have to be Danish too. I've watched a long list of American stand-up comedy shows and I didn't at all find them funny. I've watched German shows and didn't really get to laugh much though that was probably the shows' intention. I've even watched Polish, Brittish and Turkish humour and neither of that really made me laugh the same way as Langt 'Fra Las Vegas' does. It's kinda the same as with 'Casper % Mandrillaftalen' or 'Banjos Likørstue'. It really isn't that funny if you're not Danish and don't get the twisted humour. In the same way Danes might not find it that interesting to laugh at David Letterman poking the same jokes night after night with his 'Will it Float'-girls and what have you. Therefore my conclusion is this. Since every nation has evolved individually so has the humour in every nation. And what might seem funny in some countries may be considered horrible in others. 'Langt Fra Las Vegas' is an excellent show seen from a Danish point of view.
