Hollywood should take some lessons from North Korea.
I was fully expecting ONN to be one of the tags when I clicked on this.
A comedy show that has to tell you that it's funny.
North Korea has its very own TBS.
Those mics are 00 each.
Comedy Protip: Don't focus on the actual beans, but on the effects they have on the gastrointestinal tract.
They can't. Someone already thought of that and they have a rule expressly forbidding fart jokes when talking about beans. I'm not kidding.
not sure if I feel better knowing KJI has a sense of humor or scared to death
Kim Yong Chuckles would be a good name for a comedian
Rodents of Unusual Size
At first I thought that was a stage name...I thought, "oh how nice, the North Korean man became a clown when he moved, and now he brings the laughter of DEMOCRACY. In your FACE, dictatorship!"
It could be like the Korean To Be or Not to Be.
They re-use the same situations over and over, and aren't funny?
So, what, it's like Mad TV?

I say, Sister Comrade. Did you hear about the southern dissident who crossed the 38th parallel?
No, I didn't, Brother Comrade. Why did the southern dissident cross the 38th parallel?
Because, Sister Comrade, the Great General has heaven's mandate to rule and will lead the Korean people to unification and glory under his leadership!
Ho ho ho ho ho!
Do you know why beans grow so well?
I don't know, I heard it has something to do with nitrogen-
No! It's because Kim Jong Il has blessed the beans with his Divine Magic!
Oh! That makes more sense! Ha ha ha!
Try showing a clip with subtitles.
Well obviously it's not going to be funny if you start explaining the jokes. Can the dissident guy, I want to see more of Korean Bob Hope.
I love how when you translate something from Japanese or Korean or whatever, it completely loses any sense of being profound that it may have once had.

God dammit, I want to see unfunny comedy, not people talking about the fact that unfunny comedy exists!
Wait, a North Korean, government produced television show in one of the most oppressive countries in the world has....AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE OF PROPAGANDA BEHIND IT???
Shit, send that in to High Times, man!

Your lies are ridiculous and this is really my hair.
Nobody here, or in the clip gets it. They're unfunny, but they're doing so ironically, like Neil Hamburger. It's a really brilliant show.
They have their own Fox News!
This page is the sixth result on Google for "It's So Funny North Korea" That in no way helps me find an episode to watch. I've traveled in a circle.
No subtitles really is an unfortunate, ironic oversight here.
The piece is making fun of a show for having to tell its viewers that it is a comedy by telling the viewers this is so instead of actually showing the show in context, with subtitles.
Don't feel bad North Korea; it's still better than Mind of Mencia.
North Korean TV critics say: "It's no more than a platform for government propaganda! But...we're OK with that if you are....right?...."
