I Want to Become More Funny

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

We are all funny in a way - some are just born with this talent, and being witty and entertaining comes perfectly naturally to them. As opposed to this, there are also people who don't always succeed in making their interlocutors smile. They try, and try, and on their way to eliciting a smile, they have to go through all those awkward moments when no one is amused by their jokes, and face that terrible silence when people don't respond to what should have been a funny story.

Stop Forcing Your Funny Side to Appear

There are a lot of people who want to enhance their ability to make other people laugh, and one of the best advices they'll ever get is this - stop worrying about whether you'll be funny to other people. This is one of the most important things to remember on your way to becoming hilariously funny and amusing. If you worry about whether people will laugh at what you have just said, the chances are they won't laugh. The reason: your face will show that you are over-thinking it. No, with a face that lets everyone see you might be concerned about something, you are not creating a pleasant atmosphere. Let me ask you this, would you laugh at something if a person who said it looked worried even it were funny?

Your Funny Side Is There

You need to note that every one of us is funny in their own way. Maybe you will not be a stand-up comedian one day, but you will definitely make someone laugh, intentionally or not. Have you noticed how people who don't want to be comic are actually quite amusing to people around them? So, stop trying too hard to find your witty side, and it will appear when you expect it the least.

I Want to Be Funny - Which is The Easiest Way to Make People Laugh?

There are many types of humor, and you can try out these different styles, and find the one that suits your personality. You can tell jokes, use sarcasm or irony in order to make someone smile; you can turn to physical humor, make jokes at your own expense or do nothing about it. The sky is the limit! However, keep in mind that you should work on your funny side only in the way that you are comfortable. For an instance, if you are not good at telling jokes, don't tell them. Instead, choose another option to help you become funnier.

Different People Laugh at Different Types of Humor

Surely it has happened to you that you've told a joke to your friend, and you both laughed so hard your stomach started to hurt, but when you told your partner the same thing he looked at you and said plainly: "What's so funny about that?" How can he or she be not amused by the joke that made your friend laugh? Well, if you want to be really funny you need to know that people respond differently to different jokes. Therefore, try to meet your audience before you start your act you prepared in advance. You need to know that your audience is as important as a great joke or a funny line.

In conclusion, making fun of people in order to be funny or telling jokes that will insult your listeners is not the best way to become funnier. You should know that humor is a relative thing, but try to be polite and tasteful.
