Sir Michael Parkinson believes men are funnier than women – and calls the abandonment culture "nonsense".


"It's a very controversial statement, but they're much better": Sir Michael Parkinson believes men are funnier than women – and calls abandonment culture "nonsense".

Sir Michael Parkinson revealed what he admires most about other men – their sense of humor.

In an interview with Stellar magazine earlier this week, the 85-year-old British TV icon was asked if he thought men had a hard time expressing their feelings – and he was quick to disagree.

“Most of the men I know are the opposite, they are very sensitive and also very funny. That's what I like most about men, ”he said.

"It's a very controversial statement, but they are much better than women at their sense of humor," added the host.

Sir Michael admitted his comments could get him in trouble these days and told the magazine, "There you are, this is going to get me."

But he insisted that he doesn't mind "breaking culture" and believes it is "nonsense".

He told the magazine, “Most of the men I know are ... very sensitive and very funny too. That's what I like most about men. It's a very controversial statement, but they are way better than women at their sense of humor. & # 39;

"I ignore it, I never participated, I don't belong to any of it … It seems out of control and it hurts people – even young people.

"God knows we all have enough problems without that extra nonsense," he said.

Parkinson's television career spans 50 years and is known for hosting his own talk show Parkinson's from 1971 to 1982 and from 1998 to 2007.

Sir Michael has interviewed many eminent names over the years.

Oh man! Sir Michael admitted it was a statement that could get him in trouble these days. He insisted he don't mind breaking off the culture and believes it's nonsense.
