Drawing on a conceptual framework for the literature review, we trace the origin and development of humour; examine the effectiveness of humour as a managerial device for improving organizational effectiveness; discuss humour and ambivalence and its impact on power distribution, dissent and division within the workplace; identify cultural differences in humour and explore the use of humour from the Singapore perspective.
