Germans and humour
Yes, the Germans do have a sense of humour! For anyone who has been to Germany or has German friends or indeed is German will attest to that. It may not always be the same as the Australian, English or American humour but it can be very funny. Especially when having a laugh at themselves and their own country's foibles and peculiarities.
Paco Erhard, or as he has been often cheekily referred to by the media, the worst German ever, has been entertaining crowds all over the world, especially in Europe and has been to Australia a number of times. Lucky for Melbournians, he is yet again performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival . His humour is founded on his very sharp understanding and observation of social nuances and the way Germans behave in comparison to other nationalities. It is not always politically correct but it is honest, intelligent, articulate, raucous and very funny.
