    Your sense of humour might lead you to do or say something you find funny, but which causes damage or distress (or total bafflement) in others.

    Or anger. A person with a dangerous sense of humour may suffer because of it.

    Also - though more rarely - 'a dangerous sense of humour' may sometimes refer to danger not so much to the comedian as to the Establishment - it can be the same as a subversive sense of humour.
