Alright guys so if you couldn’t tell but the title of this post this is all about how to tell a joke! Yes I know what you’re thinking…”who doesn’t know how to tell a joke?!” But lets be honest, we all know that one guy who thinks he’s funny but whenever he opens is mouth it’s just plain awkward. So here are a few steps on how to tell a successful joke!
First off, know when and when not to tell a joke. If someone genuinely does not want to hear a joke don’t force it upon them! You’ll save yourself the awkwardness and potential punch to the face!
Ok, so you found someone who wants to hear a joke and get a chuckle? Perfect! Now just make sure you know what the joke is. A good joke shouldn’t have pauses because you forgot what comes next or shouldn’t be followed with a couple of “umm” or “oh wait! I didn’t say this”. The joke should be smooth and hit every point that will make it funny.
There is no need to over act the part of being a jokers. Normally a good joke will be funny with just your regular voice! Remember the whole awkward part you want to avoid? 9 times out of 10, if you add a weird voice to the joke you’re going to get to that awkward moment real quick!
Finally, you have to realize that not everyone is going to think your joke is funny! Even if you did everything that you’re suppose to you have to keep in mind that everyone has a different sense of humor. What you think is funny might not be to another. If thats the case then don’t try and make them feel like they are required to laugh and don’t belittle them either!
Now go my children! Take these tips and make the world a funnier place!
