Brazil Stand Up Comedy Posted by on Apr 28, 2011 in Entertainment, Learning

One of the best ways to determine if you’re an advanced speaker of any language is to test to see how much humor you can understand. If you can understand jokes in Portuguese, you’re in good shape, but if you can understand stand up comedy, you’ve come a long way!

So today, we’re going to take a look at some clips of stand up comedy in Brazil, which also cover some themes in Brazilian pop culture, like TV shows, celebrities, and shopping, as well as themes like religion and relationships. These are some of Brazil’s popular comedians, including Rafinha Bastos, Bruno Motta, and Fabio Rabin.

If you’re still having trouble understanding, don’t worry! It takes time, and the more you practice, the easier it will get.

    Wow…just when I thought I was starting to understand, you post this. Now I realize I can’t understand a thing they were saying. I got words but not the gist of the jokes. Is there anyone who can post the dialog or key phrases used? The last comedian to me was the easier one to understand yet some phrases were totally alien to me.
