Can anybody be Funny?

"A day without laugher is a day wasted"- Charlie Chaplin


A guy wearing cling-film Y-fronts walks into a doctors office

Doc says,' I can see your nuts!!'



The owner of a drugstore arrives at work to find a man leaning heavily
against a wall. The owner goes inside and asks his clerk what's up. "He
wanted something for his cough, but I couldn't find the cough syrup,"
the clerk explains. "So I gave him a laxative and told him to take it
all at once." "Laxatives won't cure a cough, you idiot," the owner
shouts angrily.
"Sure it will," the clerk says, pointing at the man leaning on the wall.
"Look at him. He's afraid to cough."



A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked.
"Hunting Flies" He responded.
"Oh. Killed any?" She asked.
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.
Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell?"

He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

Some more tips


Don't take the piss out of others for your own benefit.(with selfish motivation)

You are not better than anybody, however you can pretend to be arrogant, if that helps get a laugh - as long as you are aware of it.

(Ego's are entertaining - e.g.. Mohammed Ali)



Good comedians (in my opinion) are aware of themselves in the moment, and in life in general - that's how they get their material - much like poets & writers, I suppose. (Not that I claim to be a comedian /writer / poet)

Comedians obviously need material, so they look at life for funny stories - ironies, nuances, idiosyncrasies - in everyday regular life. They look at life / experiences / relationships with a open mind - let things unfold to see what happens in different situations .

Just passively observing other people relating for a while can give much material.

Likewise, looking within / at ourselves, we are sure to find much material for laughs!

eg. Just let your mind go wild -write the first things that come to your mind - watch your mind - and you'll see what I mean! (many of us are neurotic).

By going inwards we notice how our own mind works - in-sight.

When we know ourselves, we also have insight into the true nature of others. We can induce that others are like us. We all have problems, fart, use the loo, brush our teeth, get dressed, go to bed, live, breath....

Sometimes things are so obvious that we miss them. Experienced comedians, writers, poets, philosophers, meditators - don't miss these things - they are aware of our spurts of insanity / irrationality / nature. They realize that these parts of us, warts and all, make us human beings.

NOTE: some comedians may be stuck in seeing life through the filter of ' how is that funny' or 'how can I make that into a joke' - this is OK, as long as one is aware of it. (Even that is material for a comedy sketch!)

If anybody is stuck in one filter / perspective -then that is not good. It is better to see life through many perspectives / windows (more material for sketches). eg. Johari's window - what you seek you will find - eg. 'Everybody is after me' mentality creates a vicious cycle and self fulfilling prophecy.

Life can be seen as a comedy or a tragedy - it's all about attitude - eg. Hamlet.

So could it be that comedians, are enlightened / awake to life / self in the moment?

Experienced meditators, Buddhist Teachers are often noted for their humour, vitality & light heartedness. eg. The Laughing Buddha.

Laughter brings spaciousness / light into tough situations. Making a joke can be a subtle way of letting someone know what you really think.
