Everybody loves someone who can tell a joke. There is nothing better than hanging out with a hilarious friend, as their constant stream of humour usually leaves you in a fantastic mood. We all need a friend that is a laugh, as it makes our lives a lot happier and a lot more positive.
Unfortunately, not all of us have been lucky enough to find a friend that can provide us with constant laughter and humour. If you do not have one of those friends, what is stopping you from becoming that friend?
You may be thinking that you aren’t that funny and so you don’t see it happening, but even the most hilarious people might not start off as funny, it is something that can be taught and learned.
In the past, people would buy joke books and watch clips from their favourite comedians to learn how to be funny. However, thanks to the internet, you no longer need to do this. The internet is a brilliant tool for learning absolutely anything and this includes being funny. Here is how you can use the internet to be funny.
Look For Joke Websites
Thanks to the speed of the internet, funny jokes are only a click away. If you simply Google funny jokes, you will be presented with millions of different internet pages that promise to offer you the funniest jokes that you can find.
These websites seem to be quite general, so if you are looking for specific jokes, you should make your searches a bit more specific. For example, you could look up football jokes or even pop culture jokes, the possibilities are endless.
If you are not sure which kind of jokes you want to look up to, just think about what makes you laugh. There is no point in being funny for the sake of others if you are not making yourself laugh at the same time. It is also likely that a lot of your friends have the same kind of humour as you, so they will find the jokes that make you laugh funny too.
Take Comedy Classes
Something that you will be glad to know is that you can take a lot of online comedy classes to try and improve your sense of humour. With the events of covid happening, a lot of comedians were unable to tour or perform live, which meant that they were struggling to make enough money to survive.
In order to try and make it through this difficult time period, a lot of comedians started to host online events, but often these events did not make them enough money, as not many people were attending.
Thanks to apps like Zoom, a lot of comedians were able to host online comedy classes for people that were looking to improve their overall sense of humour. You can have one to one classes with comedians that you contact online, or if you are quite shy you can join a group class, as comedians tend to do these quite often.
However, if you are really serious, I would recommend that you invest in one on one classes. One to one classes will really give you the best chance to improve your comedy, as the instructor will be focusing on you entirely and nobody else. You can also get to know him and find out how he became so great at comedy, by asking him interesting questions about his life and where he made his start in comedy, you will be able to learn from him and improve your own overall skills.
Attend Online Comedy Shows
Even though people are able to perform in person, there are still a lot of comedians and companies that are choosing to host their events online, or at least stream their live events on the internet for people to see.
A great way to improve your overall humour is by watching a lot of comedy performances and picking up on what gets the best reaction. For a lot of these gigs that are streamed online, there is still a live audience, so you can see what this audience is responding well to and try and implement this same humour into your life.
