To make a Mexican laugh

Buenas tardes:

"Si quieres darle risa a un mexicano...."

Is this a good translation for "If you want to make a Mexican laugh...."?

Thanks

My attempt.


I have other opinion above the translation of the last post, To make a Mexican laugh

It wants mean Hacer reir a un Mexicano, if you want to say Quiero hacer reir a un Mexicano, I think that the oration would be of the following way I want make a Mexican laugh.

I don't know if I'm in the accurate but as well could to be other help toward you.


I just suffixed other answer above it.

I concur with Rusty and Crotalito: "hacer reír a un Mexicano" = "to make a Mexican laugh".
