Abstract: This final paper is about how English jokes work (topics, vocabulary and use of colloquial language) and how are they able to be compared with Spanish jokes. This work comes from a general background about jokes, a brief mention about the jokes related to the field of pragmatics for a later classification of the different topics in which jokes are divided. It also contains some interviews of English native speakers and Spanish native speakers, who are telling jokes to later do an analysis of the way in which vocabulary is employed, when telling these jokes about different topics for a final comparison.
