The first thing thing we realized is that French people are beaaaautiful. Hunk and babe city! It’s great. And the food is the best. In terms of comedy, we went in with the preconception that the French are snooty. Like, I can’t even name a French comedy! But also I’m not super sophisticated and I’m a hillbilly from Iowa, so it’s not like I was raised on Amelie. Ultimately, what we found out is that French humor is very broad. They consume a ton of American content on TV. Friends, Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, all of those types of shows are very popular there.
We also interviewed some comedians and went to this place called Studio Bagel, which is a French sketch comedy troupe. I only interviewed like five people so it's hard to generalize an entire nation, but you realize that their sense of humor is pretty immature. They laugh at fart noises. The sketch that Studio Bagel had me do was really insane, where aliens were ejaculating into farmer’s eyes and I was being raped, and it was all part of a prank show. Normally I don’t feel above things, but I did.
