How to make people laugh
In this post, you’re going to talk about how to make other people laugh and love being around you. Being charismatic in certain situations opens many doors in life.
So sometimes it’s good to know how to use our communication to charm or impress someone.
How to make people laugh?
- Say the opposite
- Using cartoon logic
- Double the joke
- Double the other person’s joke
- Don’t get defensive
- Falsification method
- Use ready-made jokes
1. Say the opposite
The first way to make people laugh is ridiculously easy. We use this technique when someone asks us a question.
When someone asks you a question, think about what they want you to say and say the opposite. This gets even more laughs if it’s something people wouldn’t say aloud.
Of course, to avoid looking like you are serious, you can soften this with a smile. This way, people will know you are joking.
2. Using cartoon logic
If you don’t want dark humor, using cartoon logic is another great way to make people laugh. Wonder what the answer would be if this were a cartoon.
Remember, for these two techniques, being questioned is your trigger. When you’re building a new habit, triggers are incredibly helpful. That way, you can go about your social life normally, and whenever someone asks you a question, that’s the trigger to answer the opposite or like a cartoon.
That’s how you build a habit. Therefore, if you want to impress someone, these are two quick and simple techniques.
3. Double the joke
Once you’ve made people laugh, the easiest way to keep them laughing is to double down on your joke. This is often what takes someone from “this joke is funny” to “this person is funny.”
Whenever you make a joke and people laugh, you can double it. Repeating the same thing. If you do this too much, you run the risk of killing the fun, but it almost always works.
4. Double the other person’s joke
If you find it difficult to fold your joke so that it is still funny, there is an easier way. You can double the joke of the person talking to you.
It’s that simple. The other person did the work of finding a joke structure that worked at the time. She just laid the groundwork for you. All you have to do is laugh and go along. Sometimes you have to be a little creative and align with the moment’s vibe.
People might not like this because you’re stealing their spotlight. But as long as you laugh at their jokes first, they’ll feel good because you’re showing that you like their humor enough to build on it.
Therefore, in a certain way, the other person will feel special. Your trigger for this habit is when the other person makes you laugh. When that happens, you take advantage.
5. Don’t get defensive
Now let’s talk about how to be charismatic if someone teases you. Many people get nervous when they are teased by their friends because they think it makes them look mean.
But if you can manage it well, then being teased is a fantastic chance to look confident and make people laugh.
There are thousands of ways to face a provocation, but at this point, we will talk in case you get defensive. When someone teases you, and you see that you are trying to act nice, go back and take back what you just said to defend yourself.
It looks complicated, but in practice, it’s super easy. The key to this trick is to use your defensive reaction to prepare for a change in perspective.
6. Falsification method
At any time you can create expectations and then go the other way to get a laugh. The easiest way to use this method is to say something that people think is going to be complimentary but actually isn’t.
As an example, you start by telling your friend that he is the best at writing texts in your class at school. But then you say that this happens because he is the only one who writes texts in the class.
7. Use ready-made jokes
If the techniques we talked about how to make people laugh seem too complicated, this last one will be better for you. In this technique, you don’t need to think fast at the moment.
First, think of the most common conversations that tend to come up around you. Then invent some previous jokes that fit the titrations that usually happen.
Sometimes you think that comedians are very fast in improvisation, but they are not that fast. They just reuse jokes they’ve told before. If you look at tv shows, the presenters often use the same joke in several shows.
For example, Kevin hart is always saying in his conversations that he is a sex symbol. This is easy to do, but it’s always a laughing matter. I’m sure you’ll be able to impress people this way.
But remember, the point here is not to steal Kevin hart’s joke and use it around. What you need to do is think of jokes that fit your personality and your style of charisma.
These were the best tips to make people laugh. It’s not easy, but once you start practicing, everything becomes easier, and you will see that you’re going to get some laughs.
I hope you enjoyed it and that this helped in some way! Thank you!
