Have you ever heard someone say that they don’t think that women can be funny? I have to admit that I didn’t hear that until recently, so I looked at some of the research on gender and perceptions of humor. I think you’ll be surprised. In this episode I summarize some of this research.

But I can’t help thinking an even more interesting study would be one that shows the first statistic in comparison to how people rate the same captions when they know the gender beforehand. Men/Womens Humor vs. Men/Womens perceived humor. Does anyone know of a reliable study like this?
