Intercultural Humor

Many times comedy or humor plays on how cultural universals look differently from culture to culture.

Here are the cultural universals we are learning about:

    • Food
    • Clothing
    • Communication
    • Celebrations
    • Beliefs
    • Religion
    • Customs and Traditions
    • Shelter/Architecture
    • Family Structure
    • Art/Music/Entertainment/Sports

We are going to watch three videos that show cultural diversity (differences in cultures). Your job is to hunt for the differences in the cultural universals. Hint: It is what makes the videos very funny!

Now you have a quick skit! Come up with a quick skit that shows how cultural universals are different.
