Do men and women find different things funny?


While working on my first master's degree I worked with a group to study the perceptions men and women had of humor. We went to comedy clubs and had the attendees rate the comedians on a number of things, and we found that men had a higher appreciation for what all attendees deemed blue comedy and women seemed more in favor of more clean comedy shows. I don't have the paper that resulted in front of me, but I've always thought it was interesting and felt there may be something more we could have done with that study. I'm curious what your thoughts are.
