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, for example of the British where "blowing one's own trumpet" is common, even encouraged. It is also seen as a major component of the comedy of American comedians such as Joan Rivers, Louis C.K., Don Knotts, and Woody Allen.
