“No amount of skill will ensure the success of a joke or humorous anecdote if the content and style are culturally inappropriate.”
-Dean Foster

Used skillfully, humour can help establish an instant rapport with your audience.

It can help drive home key points or messages, and information relayed with humour is more likely to be remembered.

It can increase interest in what you're saying and help to keep your audience's attention throughout your presentation.

It lets your audience see your human side.

But be careful. Humour can also confuse, befuddle, or even offend your audience, especially while presenting to people from a different culture.

3 tips for telling jokes in other cultures:
- Avoid making comparisons between the country you are in and other countries.
-Even if people in the culture are self-deprecating, this is not an invitation to join in. Most people can laugh at themselves, but feel quite different when someone is laughing at them.
-Run your jokes past the event organizer or a counterpart from that culture, as what may seem hilarious to you could be seen as confusing at best, and at worst, insulting.

Although non-exhaustive, this quick culture guide should give you a good idea of what is a go and what is a no in some major cultures from around the world.
