Self-deprecation is often perceived as being a characteristic of certain nations, such as in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, where "blowing one's own trumpet" is frowned upon. Famous examples include English comedian David Mitchell. It is also seen as a major component of the comedy of North American comedians such as Rodney Dangerfield, Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Louis C.K., Doug Stanhope, Don Knotts, Woody Allen, Zach Galifianakis, Mike Birbiglia, Nathan Fielder, Carrot Top, Jon Stewart, Larry David, David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, Bernie Mac, Amy Schumer, Bo Burnham, and Jim Norton.
