This study attempts to discuss if humor and gender are connected. Our field of research is two Danish TV-series Klovn and Ditte & Louise. Though an analysis of two interviews one with men and one with women, we seek to explain if Klovns humor is related and understood mostly by men and if Ditte & Louise humor is related and understood mostly by women and even if humor can be divided into gender. By using main theories by Henri Bergson and Sigmund Freud we highlight the basic concepts of humor. Furthermore we use secondary literature by Jørgen Stigel, Michael Billig and Steffen Auring & Erik Svendsen to support and understand our main theories. On the basis of the two theories and with support from the three secondary theories we wish to discuss two different points of view on gender by Judith Butler and Karen Sjørup and how our preunderstandings can affect the project. Finally we will determine and conclude if there is a difference between gender and humor related to the two TV-series.
