Which Response Do You Really Want When You Tell A Joke?

When someone tells a common, everyday joke (also known as a street joke) among friends, family, co-workers or when giving a speech or presentation — the two most common responses are:

Response #1


Response #2


If you would like to get more Response #1 when you tell a joke, here’s what you need to know…

Why Joke Telling Skills Matter

laughing-friends1-medI believe that everyone knows that one of the most powerful ways to quickly gain admiration, respect and acceptance is to be able to make others laugh out loud!

Telling jokes is one of the most common (and easiest) ways to cause others to laugh.

It doesn’t matter if you are telling a joke to friends, family or co-workers. It doesn’t matter if you a telling a joke during a speech or presentation.

Few things compare with the sense of accomplishment and shear excitement of causing others to burst out laughing when you tell a funny joke!

But I also know this:

If you tell a joke and it flops, the exact opposite is true.

If a person tells multiple jokes that just lay there like a dead fish and now a trend is established — one that sticks like glue.

confusedAnd once it’s established that someone really can’t tell a joke, people don’t care to listen when that person attempts to tell ANY joke.

They may even make an assumption that the person is just not that smart or intelligent.

And while people may not overtly comment on a person’s less-than-hilarious joke telling ability to their face, they will readily comment about it in a negative way to others.

Think about it…

What did you think the last time someone tried to tell a joke to you and it flopped in a major way? What did you conclude about that person and their sense of humor? Did you comment about that person’s lack of ability to tell a joke to someone else?

At this point I think it is important to understand why some people are great joke tellers and why others are not…

Joke Telling Skill Is 100% Learned

learn-from-others2-1Everyone learns the “art” of joke telling informally. It is learned from the people we encounter and observe through the course of our life — starting at a very early age.

It is also learned through a mostly trial-and-error process in order to try to figure out what is funny and what is not funny.

In other words, virtually no one gets any sort of valuable training or usable insight on the true mechanics of great joke telling.

Subsequently, an individual’s joke telling skill and ability is usually one of those things that people either appear to be “naturally gifted” at, or they simply aren’t.

I know this from my own personal experience…

I was one of those people who could make people laugh easily in a casual conversation or when I was teaching a class.

But when it came to telling a common, everyday joke (what comedians refer to as a street joke), my results were hit or miss at best.

It wasn’t until I became a professional comedian that I fully understood why many times when I told a street joke it was about as funny as an ingrown toenail.

It was during my professional stand-up comedy career that I also discovered just how incredibly valuable street jokes could be when I performed at corporate functions and speaking gigs that I landed as a result of my stand-up comedy career.

Based on my own professional experience, here’s what I can tell you:

  • Anyone can learn how to tell a joke that gets genuine laughs — virtually every single time they tell a joke
  • If you only learn how to avoid the common mistakes most people make when they tell a joke (like I made before I knew better), you will dramatically increase the laughter response you get when you tell a joke
  • Learning how to tell a joke like a real pro is EASY — you only need to learn and apply the right actionable information to get the laughs you want when you tell a joke
  • You do not need to become a professional comedian in order to tell jokes like a real pro and garner the respect and admiration you want

Let me put this another way…


Your ability to tell funny jokes — in any environment or circumstance — is largely dependent upon your knowledge and ability to:

1. Select the funniest jokes to tell in the first place

2. Adapt those jokes to your own individual speaking style and…

3. Deliver those jokes in a way that will almost guarantee that you get the best laughter response when you tell it

It’s usually not a person’s sense of humor that keeps them from being able to tell a funny joke on a consistent basis.

It’s usually a simple lack of actionable knowledge that keeps most people from being able to tell a really funny joke at any time.

And even though jokes are some of the most powerful communication tools in spoken language, let me ask you this…

Has any expert on joke telling ever taken you aside and showed you all the step-by-step techniques you really need to be able to tell a really funny joke — and get killer results time after time?

That didn’t happen to me. And from all of the research I’ve done, chances are pretty good that it hasn’t happened to you either.

Now if what I have presented so far resonates with you, let me introduce you to…
