Why are Jewish people so funny?

This might sound absurd but let me finish-

I discovered my grandfather is Jewish and have been exploring the religion and identity, listening to many Jewish lectures, browsing this subreddit, looking many things up.

Something ive noticed is that from Jewish speakers, to just randoms in comments, theres always jokes being told, and theyre actually funny.

Im not very seceptible to normal “jokes” i have a young persons humor of absurdity, but yall (or us maybe) always make me laugh. It really brings levity, soul, and something different to the table.

And even in shows or movies (which are ofc fake so its not evidence) ive noticed it. Is it just me? Is there a culture or tradition around being funny, or advanced puns that arent just stupid? Is it a side effect of the deep poetry of the tanakh?
