Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Self-deprecation is the act of belittling, undervaluing or disparaging oneself. It can be used in humor and tension release. Self-deprecation is often perceived as being a characteristic of certain nations, such as Great Britain, where "blowing one's own trumpet" is frowned upon. It is also seen as a major component of the comedy of American comedians such as Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Louis C.K., Don Knotts, Woody Allen and Zach Galifianakis.
