Brevity. Keep your joke to a minimum. Many people like humorous monologues, but not in a livecompany, but sitting in front of the TV. In everyday dialogue, people are often not very attentive and patient. Go to the salt of the joke rather.
A game of exaggeration and illogism. But keep in mind that the association should be obvious or easy to explain. Then it's always funny. For example, compare a cat to a hippopotamus. The fluffy round cat really looks like a mini-hippopotamus.
Replacing everyday words with funny ones, for example, old ones. This helps create more comic relief in the story. Instead of pants, pants, for example.
Broadening your horizons. Surprisingly, the wider the horizons, the usually funnier the jokes. And most importantly, the assortment of funny stories is richer. This is facilitated by the study of everything new, reading books, informative television programs.
Important The truth is important. Before you laugh at the world around you, learn to laugh at yourself. As the great Hesse said, humor is the last refuge of the philosopher.
Try to laugh at your problems first and then laugh at your mistakes. Name them "experience" and then rename them "experiment" altogether.
How do you know if a joke is appropriate? Listen, in what tone and with what words they joke in the company where you find yourself. If you are relaxing with close friends, do not bother at all, even if the anecdote turns out to be off topic, you will all laugh heartily at its inappropriateness.
Funny facial expressions
Rough humor (on an intimate topic, with obscene words or rude actions of characters) in an unfamiliar company. Nobody will laugh, even if it's funny. Because everyone wants to seem very cultured and educated with strangers.
Jokes on the innermost. If a person values something very much, you need to be careful with jokes on this topic. For example, a playful threat to crash a biker's favorite motorcycle can easily turn into a quarrel.
Jokes on a sore subject. For example, you should not scoff at a corporate party that someone does not drink. Or make fun of a fat girlfriend who couldn't buy jeans because she came in a small size. My great-grandmother's sister remarked: “I know that I have a long nose. But why should I talk about it? "
Jokes are not the topic. Remember that the connection between the anecdote and the situation should be obvious not only to you, but also to those around you.
Inappropriate laughter. First tell a joke, and then laugh, along with everyone, not the other way around. Although sometimes laughter itself turns out to be a sufficient reason for an overall good mood.
