Monty Python, Jonathan Winters, Robin Williams, Stu from Family Guy.

In real life, just everyday, run of the mill, silly people doing silly stuff. The other day I was in the local market's produce section and couldn't find any of those thin plastic bags you put your onions, peppers, what have you, in. I looked high and low and couldn't find any. I noticed an older lady kinda wandering around just like I was. She eventually walked up to me and in very broken English says..."No finda da bag?"...I shook my head-No, and laughed, then she laughed and we both laughed a bit together.

Chipmunks make me laugh, specifically, the 3 dozen or so that live on my property. I've found that the old cartoon Alvin and The Chipmunks was a pretty good representation of Chipmunk culture. They are the most playful, silly, goofy little critters in the animal kingdom. The follow me around as I rake, week, mow, etc. They chase each other like a couple of puppies, all they time chirping away. I swear they'll tease me like they want me to chase them too. Great fun.

Kudos to the OP. Laughing is real important right now.

Random stuff. Movies may get a laugh or two. Rick and Morty often makes me chuckle. Idiots crashing skateboards can be funny.

'Green Wing' - probably my all-time favourite tv show



And 'Spaced' was just genius:



I think a lot of the episodes of both are available on yootoob these days.

As a guitarist, hearing someone else play out of tune, intensionaly, drives me to tears.
Long ago I played in a little family band where the father tried to play fiddle, and he could not tune that thing to save his life. And he could not tell it. That, and his presentation, like some kind of star, would get me laughing so hard that it was difficult to perform.

I like thinking about the ordinary everyday situations, with just a slight twist of absurdity. Things you would never do but wish you could because, well, we're a society.

I find that what makes people laugh is often the misfortune of others.
the Germans had some term for that, if I recall.

For me personally lately it's generally the sight and sounds of the squirrels fighting at the feeder I have five feet away from where I spend most of my time
schadenfreude
