Everyone admires someone who can make them laugh. Most girls have it on their 'he should be ...' list of the things they look for in a guy. And most people who don't consider themselves really funny, just wonder where these people seem so funny without even trying?!? Well, it's an acquired art, but don't worry. Below are some points that will help you learn.
The key to having a good sense of humor is to be happy. Sure, everyone has problems and issues, but learn to think positive even in times of adversity. When you're happy, you'll be able to see the funny side of things. And when you see the funny side of things, you can make jokes about it. Your humor will be appreciated by one and all.
The thing that people remember most about good comedians is their perfect sense of timing. There's no point in saying something funny if the moment's gone. There's no use responding to something with a funny quip after 2 hours! Most people would have forgotten the main statement by then. And your SMART comeback will be lost on them.
You - The Subject
Most people will not appreciate jokes being directed at them the first time you meet them. And most comedians do make a lot of jokes at other people's expense. So, to be on the safe side, when you're first meeting a new group, refrain from making fun of them. Instead, draw the attention to yourself. Say ridiculously funny things about yourself and see how they respond. No one minds laughing at another person, so I'm sure they'll be in splits!
Humorous stories are the ultimate. Everyone loves to hear funny stories, whether it's about someone they know or about someone they don't. So keep in mind all the funny stories that you know. And use them whenever you get the opportunity. You can also use funny incidents that take place in your daily life. Funny people can make everything seem funny. You must know how to be witty, recollect, and reconstruct humorous incidents that have happened with you.
One of the most important steps you need to know if you want to be the king of comedy among your peers, you have GOT to know when to use an appropriate joke. The joke should be related to the topic in discussion. Don't just throw in some random silly joke about a random topic when people are discussing something totally different. For instance, if you'll are discussing the rising prices of fuel, what's the point of making a joke about a goat? Unless, you deliberately want to appear to be a fool, of course!
Different people have different styles. Some may make you laugh solely with jokes, while some know how to be funny without telling jokes too! Their expressions, gestures, or just the way they say something makes people laugh their guts out. So develop your own unique style. And stick to it. You can imitate some of the popular comedians and use their quotes now and then, but a unique style is always more appreciated.
These were some tips on how you can be funny all the time. Not that following them will make you the funniest person on the planet, but you could use them to see where you can alter your style of being funny. So go ahead, spread the laughter and joy all around!
