Cringe comedy is a specific genre of comedy, where the intent is to make you uncomfortable rather than make you laugh.
Example of a cringe worthy individual: A fedora-wearing misanthrope who also happens to enjoy My Little Pony and always complains about being "forever alone". Sometimes, he carries fake swords and attaches fake furry tails to his pants and walks around in public pretending he is not human. He spends his days browsing 9Gag and talks about memes on his facebook page. He says "lol" out-loud. He is unemployed and lives in his mother's basement. He prides himself in his sense of humor, where his favorite "joke" involves screaming "D'OH!" in a Homer Simpson voice. He often incorporates the french word "Le" prior to nouns in order to make them funnier. For example, I went to le shopping mall and bought myself le fedora. He uses this word because he doesn't know how to be funny so he resorts to stale Reddit jokes.

The Cringe Channel ( is a comedy site full of examples which perfectly exemplify this type of person

UK slang. An extremely awkward, uncomfortable situation caused by a person, group of people or environment, causing extreme embarrassment. The resultant effect on the surrounding non-cringe people is usually shame, chagrin or vexation or a combination of these.
1. "Mate, I can't believe that Fred was wasted and tried to get with a guy. Absolute cringe."

2. "Mate, I can't believe that Fred got wasted and fell down the stairs naked in front of that girl he fancied. That was cringe. Solid banter though."

2. The epitomy of "cringe":

A word that was originally meant to describe embarrassingly stupid individuals & actions.
You know the feeling you get when you hear those really weird embarrassing stories in the news? Thats what the word was originally used for.

Now this word has been completely butchered & overkilled by internet trolls, cyber bullies, anti-bronies, & keyboard warriors.
Thanks to all the trolls on the internet who constantly misuse/overuse this word, the word cringe is now a cringeworthy word.

People who use the word cringe alot tend to be covering up something cringeworthy about themselves.
The Cringe Channel (aka anti-bronies, trolls, cyber bullies, unite!) has completely butchered the word Cringe.

You keep using the word 'cringe'. I dont think it means what you think it means.

Troll: The cringe is strong with this one.

Troll: you make me cringe

While there are many bronies who actually are cringeworthy, anti-bronies use the word cringe to describe all people who like Friendship is Magic
