50+ Funny Knock Knock Jokes

knock knock jokes

Knock knock jokes are the best and commonly used jokes to make your kids laugh!

Knock knock is a popular children’s joke but they remain a favorite of adults too. Started as an audience participatory joke, it ends with a pun or silly or a humorous punchline. What makes them fun for kids is that the jokes are interactive according to Rob Elliot, author of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids.

The joke starts with a person knocking on the door who says “Knock Knock” and the person on the other side of the door asks “Who’s there?”. Then the teller says his name or any other word instead of name (Annie, Orange, Doris, Ice Cream, etc.) The listener again asks who’s the person or something (Annie who? Or Ice cream Who?)  In response, the person making the joke delivers a joke or a pun (Anee one loves you? Ice cream if you don’t let me in!)

It is said that the concept of Knock Knock jokes comes from the famous play – Macbeth by William Shakespeare. In one of the monologue scenes, “Knock, knock! Who’s there” is used as a refrain. But, it became popular in 1936, when a newspaper advertisement published a standard knock-knock joke. 

Knock, knock!
Who’s there?
Rufus who?
Rufus the most important part of your house.

Later on knock knock was heard as a catchphrase in some of the radio shows and music hall performers and became a regular part of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, a popular American sketch comedy television program in the United States.
