How to Be Funny and Entertain Your Friends

You will often hear people say that anyone can be funny. If that were so, the world would be full of Jerry Seinfeld’s and everyone would be laughing their lives away. Learning how to be funny can be done, but it is not something that will come naturally to everyone. There are some tricks to the trade.

In order to be funny, you have to have a captive audience that wants to be entertained. For instance, you are not going to tell a joke or crack wise to your boss after you dropped the ball on a million dollar account. This is not a wise time. However, a properly executed unexpected joke can set the stage in other situations that will have your friends calling you the life of the party.

Real life situations are often the funniest things that you can offer up. Look at some of the most successful comedians in the world. Bill Cosby, Richard Prior, Eddie Murphy and Kris Rock, all they really do is tell stories about their lives that make us fall out of our chairs. Granted they have a way of doing it, but our lives supply us with your humor every day.

Another thing that evokes laughter is a little pain and suffering. This is a time honored tradition and is the root of slapstick humor. What was funnier that the Three Stooges when you were a kid. Someone getting smacked in the head or taking a groin shot can make you fall out of your chair holding your gut from laughing so hard. Work some of this stuff in and you will be amazed at how funny you become to your friends.

Quick wit is also something that you will find very useful when you are trying to be funny. Making a comment on the obvious with statement that reflects the direct opposite is always a hit. Think Chandler Bing on Friends. His sarcasm would have the fans in stitches on every show.

Does it take work to be funny? Sure it does, but it beat the heck out of being boring!
