  This article on millennial humor is hilarious. And I would know because I am a millennial. -“According to Megan Krtek, author of the article “Millennials and Comedy: 5 Brands Getting it Right,” Millennials like humor that feels natural and authentic. They’re put-off by humor that seems like it’s trying too hard.” -“They’re comfortable with uncomfortable truths.” -“Additionally, Chanon Cook, a research executive for Comedy Central, asserts that Millenials tend to value absurd comedy over sarcastic comedy.” -“…the next time you want to try to make a Millennial laugh, act natural, try and make them uncomfortable, or be absurd. One of the three should do the trick.” -“Millennials have been called “pragmatic idealists.” Perhaps an unexpected result of pragmatism is how it’s shaping millennials’ sense of humor. Millennials seem to prefer to use self-deprecating, and post-ironic humor.” Yes, yes, yes and yes.
