Everybody knows that laughter is actually great for the soul – but what tickles one person ‘s funny bone is able to leave another confused and unimpressed. Some zodiac signs erupt with deep belly laughter at the sight of someone falling over whilst others are actually tickled by darker and more sarcastic humor.
Aries: total nihilism and physical comedy.
Aries are actually visual creatures who find humor in physical gags and nihilistic comedy. They are not so concerned about the subtleties of wry storytelling and would much prefer to see some prat get shot out of a canon. Old school, they are a Road Runner and Wild E Coyote type. New school, they usually dig movies as Tropic Thunder.
Recommended Comedians: Rich Hall, Charlie Chaplin.
Taurus: timeless comedies and old school classics.
Taurans often find themsleves coming back to the classics when it concerns comedy. They enjoy gentle but clever humor with well meaning underbelly. They delight in an excellent script and tend to veer towards well written British comedies like The Vicar of Dibley or perhaps The full Monty. In case they do go American though it is going to be reruns of Classics or perhaps Mash as Mrs Doubtfire.
Recommended Comedians: Sarah Millican, Billy Connolly.
Gemini: witty anecdotes and hilarious storytellers.
Nothing gets Gemini’s laughing gear more lubricated than a hilarious storyteller. They love the humor of theirs to be full and multilayered of unexpected surprises.

Look at the video collection of theirs and it’ll probably contain movies as Shaun of the Dead, Hairspray, Get Shorty and Pulp Fiction.
Recommended Comedians: Robin Williams, Noel Fielding.
Cancer: awkward humor and crazy misfits.
Acutely aware and deeply sensitive Cancer is actually tickled by humor that parodies the human condition.

Comedies including the Office, Mr Bean and Flight of the Concords are usually right up the alley of theirs.
Recommended Comedians: Jimmy Carr, Eddie Pepitone.
Leo: stand up comedy and outrageous humor.
Leos are often up to date with all of the greatest and latest comedies. They are big fans of the outrageous and ridiculous – the more absurd the better.

Libra: musical comedy and cheeky lyrics.
Librans enjoy all sorts of musical comedy. They adore clever, witty lyrics and appreciate the nuance of a funny score.

Musical comedies that are actually likely to amuse them include The Mormons, Shrek and The Rocky Horror Show.
Recommended Comedians: Bill Bailey, Weird Al Yankovic, Tim Minchin.
Scorpio: dangerous and dark comedy.
Scorpio goes for humor which has a dangerous and dark bent. They wish to be shocked and taken to a place which rattles their morale compass. It is about finding humor in the direst of situations whilst embracing the anti heroes of the planet. Scorpio suspects we’re ruled by a malevolent force and will howl with laughter when shown its comedic appeal. You are able to catch them watching films as Reservoir Dogs, American Psycho and Heathers for fun.

Recommended Comedians: Jon Dore, early Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Pryor.
Capricorn: dry humor with smart writing.
Smart, seamless and situational – Capricorn are not really into punchlines but prefer well written comedy with intelligence to it. They are a huge fan of dry humor and often see comedy where others see drama. That is since they get off on razor sharp repartee that walks a fine line between wit and seriousness. They love shows as Seinfeld, Community and Suits.
Standup Favs: Steve Martin, Steven Fry.
Aquarius: slaying sacred cows and holding a mirror up to reality.
Aquarius are actually political creatures and they worship anyone who humorously tears down cows that are sacred while poking fun at convention. One may say Aquarius goes for cerebral comedy in that they want to laugh their brain off – not the ass of theirs. Give them British shows as Yes Minister and The Thick Of It or perhaps American skit classics like Saturday Night Live and they will be hooked.
Recommended Comedians: Jim Jeffries, Tim Minchin.
Pisces: physical comedy with an absurd bent.
Pisces goes for props, special effects along with a really visual style. They will crack up hysterically when presented with humor which is actually downright absurd.

Recommended Comedians: Nina Conti, Strassman.
