Description Edit | History

Games with a focus on humor, or generally just not taking itself seriously. Often called "gag games". Humor is meant to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The extent to which a person finds something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence and context. A hypothetical person 'lacking a sense of humour' would find the material inducing the behavior to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational.

Clean Comedy Free of objectionable material but not necessarily unprovocative. Clean comedy is considered by some to be a higher form of comedy than bits that rely on the shock of profanity or sexual content to elicit laughs because it "is harder" to achieve. Comedians may try to circumvent clean-comedy restrictions by using innuendos, euphemisms, doublespeak, double entendres, and gender-neutral language. Example:
