We are a nation that has always gone in for the loud laugh, the wow, the yak, the belly laugh, and the dozen other labels for the roll-'em-in-the-aisles gagerissimo. This is the kind of laugh that delights actors, directors, and producers, but dismays writers of comedy because it is the laugh that often dies in the lobby. The appreciative smile, the chuckle, the soundless mirth, so important to the success of comedy, cannot be understood unless one sits among the audience and feels the warmth created by the quality of laughter that the audience takes home with it.
- James Thurber (1894-1961), U.S. humorist,

If I get a hard audience they are not going to get away until they laugh. Those seven laughs a minute- I've got to have them.
- Ken Dodd (b. 1931), British comic

A witty saying proves nothing.
- Voltaire

The tears of the world are a constant quality. For each one who begins to weep, somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.
- Samuel Beckett

Horse-play, romping, frequent and loud fits of laughter, jokes, waggery, and indiscriminate familiarity, will sink both merit and knowledge into a degree of contempt. They compose at most a merry fellow; and a merry fellow was never yet a respectable man.
- Lord Chesterfield

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not. A sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.
— Horace Walpole

Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy. . . . In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.
- Jean Baudrillard

friendly understanding.

— H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I used to be disgusted; now I try to be amused.
- Elvis Costello

Humor, a good sense of it, is to Americans what manhood is to Spaniards and we will go to great lengths to prove it. Experiments with laboratory rats have shown that, if one psychologist in the room laughs at something a rat does, all of the other psychologists in the room will laugh equally. Nobody wants to be left holding the joke.
- Garrison Keillor

The hall-mark of American humour is its pose of illiteracy.
