Best Answer

In terms of the truth values of the sentences, there is no difference between the two things. However, in terms of the presentation of the information, the information that's most important would be put at the end of the sentence.

So in:

I hate it although it is funny

The concession that it is funny is presented as being interesting or important. But in:

Although it's funny, I hate it.

... the fact that you hate it is emphasised more.
