Liverpudlians have the best sense of humour, according to Brits.
The birthplace of John Bishop, Sir Ken Dodd and Kenny Everett took the top spot in a poll of 2,000 adults to reveal the comedy capitals of the UK.3The top 20 funniest cities have been revealedCredit: Alamy 3John Bishop was born in the city
London, which has given us the likes of Rob Beckett, Jo Brand and Michael McIntyre, came second.
But the north of England and beyond largely dominated the top five with Newcastle, Manchester and Glasgow in third, fourth and fifth respectively.
Commissioned to celebrate Red Nose Day (Friday March 19), the poll found the typical adult laughs nine times a day - and makes others giggle on six occasions.
Sir Lenny Henry, Comic Relief co-founder, said: “We all need cheering up, so this year Red Nose Day will be a bit different.
“Of course we want to raise as much money as possible for people who really need it in the UK and around the world.
“But we also want to make you smile and bring you some laughter over the coming weeks.”
Sir Lenny’s birthplace, Birmingham, came sixth in the top 20 and was also the highest finishing city of the Midlands.
Seventh place was secured by Leeds, which has given us the likes of Julian Barratt and Vic Reeves.TOP 20 CITIES WITH THE BEST SENSE OF HUMOUR
12. Brighton and Hove
While eighth spot went to Edinburgh, home to the Fringe which has launched the careers of many of the biggest comedians in the UK.
The top 10 - which respondents voted for from a list of the biggest cities in the UK - was rounded off by Belfast and Cardiff, finishing 9th and 10th respectively.
The study also found sarcasm is the nation’s favourite form of humour (26 per cent) – despite perhaps unfairly often being referred to as the lowest form of wit.
Observational comedy (23 per cent) as used by Peter Kay and clever one liners (23 per cent) commonly utilised by Jimmy Carr also tickle Brits.
More than eight in 10 (85 per cent) adults consider themselves to have a good sense of humour, rating themselves a three out of five on average when it comes to how funny they are.
But more than one in 10 claim to be the funniest person they know and 48 per cent reckon they are funnier than their partner.Most read in UK NewsMURDER MILEMan in his 20s stabbed to death in second murder on same street in a monthPOLE STAR TORMENTBritish pole-dancing champion, 27, hanged herself after lockdown struggleDOUBLE BLOWGutted groom-to-be, 25, told he has incurable cancer and Covid on the same dayFLOOREDPaedo faints at police station after he's caught trying to meet a child at KFCFIRM CHOICEThe Queen 'decided long ago' who she will give Harry and Meghan's titles toPURE EVILJealous lover GUILTY of murdering girlfriend after he sent sex tapes to family

The strangest camera app that will transport you to the past – Latest News, Breaking News, Top News Headlines
Depending on how old we are, it was sometimes normal for several of us to take a photo and wait several days, even longer, to obtain the result, physically and without editing. Since immediacy became the norm in our lives, the closest to this experience could be obtained with a modern Polaroid. Until the developers of a app appealed to nostalgia with a result that more than one, makes us remember our first photographs.
Dispo is the app that triumphs among young people
With the name of Available, YouTuber David Dobrik and other Silicon Valley creators have launched an app to share photos that can only be viewed the day after they are taken. Surprisingly, it has been a great novelty among young people, who for the first time face the challenge of waiting for their images.Dispo is the most popular app among young people
Dispo sets out to recall or present the experience, again according to age, of waiting to see a photograph, as did the disposable cameras that firms like Kodak popularized in the 20th century.
With Dispo you just have to have some patience, because its behavior is quite simple. The first thing is to download the app, available only on iOS.
After capturing the photo, the next thing is to wait until 9 a.m. the next day. This simulates the development time of the reel, but without the intervention of third parties and totally free. The last step is to share it and connect with communities of photographers of different styles such as urban, portrait, etc.
As you can see in the video below, some users have shared their experience with the popular and “new” format:
Of course, despite appealing to the habits of the past, Dispo shares a lot with apps from that time, such as Clubhouse. Like the social network, in which audio predominates, Dispo only accepts new members who arrive through an invitation.
Currently, Dispo is in the development of a version 2.0. with the offer of more possibilities. For now, it is the app of the moment, but like all fashion, it is still too early to know if the excitement of waiting is maintained over time.
