13 Hidden Jokes We Missed In Comedy Movies And Shows

There's nothing quite like a good comedy movie or show to brighten up your day. Whether you're looking for something to watch when you're feeling down, or you just want a few laughs, comedy movies and shows are the perfect remedies. And with so many great titles to choose from, there's sure to be something for everyone.

We've all been there- watching a comedy movie or show, and the jokes just sail right over our heads. It can be frustrating, especially when everyone around us is doubled over in laughter. But the truth is, there are always going to be jokes that we miss for a variety of reasons. Perhaps we're not familiar with the reference, or maybe we just don't have the same sense of humor as the writer. Whatever the case may be, it's important to remember that not getting a joke doesn't make us dumb- it just means we need to read more (or watch more comedy). So next time you find yourself feeling left out during a comedy movie, just remember that you're not alone- everyone misses jokes from time to time.
