You must enter into the situation of the culture and language and then get accustomed with the language and culture of a particular person. This helps you to understand the culture. Of course you cannot tell to USA citizen a comic story that is famous in India. In the same way you cannot even tell to African guy a comic story that is famous in Australia. Every country has its own cultural understanding. Also you must think of age group that you are telling. If the age group is just 15 years, you must use a different narration of humorous story than that of the age group 5.
