There’s surely going to be dissension about this list. One that ranks the 50 funniest cities in America from The Humor Research Lab at the Leeds School of Business at University of Colorado Boulder. It just released its findings at The Humor Code.
Chicago ranks first on the list. The Windy City is a great choice. No problem with it taking the top spot, but New York–where comedy is king–should not be outside the top 5. No way. And, we shouldn’t lose to Boston EVER about anything. You hear me Yankees and other comedians? We need to take this back. How Bean Town ended up being No. 2 I have no idea.
Even more perplexing is that The Big Apple places behind Atlanta; Washington, D.C. and Portland. Say what? New Yorkers pride ourselves on our wit. A sense of humor is required in a city where rents are sky high and you can pay $55 for mac and cheese. The only saving grace is that we didn’t finish behind Los Angeles, which comes in at No. 7.
Alright, time to get funnier NYC.
