Do you think men are perceived to be funnier than women? Is a woman with a sense of humour valued as much as a man with the same sense of humour?
I could be wrong, but I think that it is more socially acceptable for men to be “comedians” than it is for women.
A man telling a joke will be perceived to be funnier than a woman telling the same joke.
What do you think and why?
Do you think this may explain why there are more successful male comedians?
