Abstract: Ethnicity, in its various forms, is a common subject for humor. Joking and humor about ethnicity have appeared in many societies at numerous points in history. This entry discusses ethnicity and humor by outlining three relationships that have developed between them. The relationships between ethnicity and humor highlight some of the ways in which humor can circulate inside a society, but they also show how laughter is transmitted between societies. In recent times, the ethics of ethnic humor have been the subject of much debate and some of these issues will be discussed as well.
