8. Believe in yourself.
You may not be the funniest person in the world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be funny. Have faith in yourself, in your efforts at learning how to be funny, and in your determination to be humorous. Trying to be funny can put a lot of pressure on us and so it is important that we have a lot of self-confidence and believe in ourselves.
9. Laugh more.
Being funny is not just about making others laugh, it’s also about laughing a lot and having a positive mindset. Remember, laughter is infectious. Make sure you laugh a lot more than you used to on a daily basis whether at different situations, at comedy shows or movies, or at yourself. Having a good sense of humor is also about having a good cheerful laugh as often as you can.
Have fun being funny
Well, now you know how to be funny. Simply follow the tips mentioned above and practice daily to improve your sense of humor. Author Vanessa Van Edwards concludes “Practice makes perfect. The more you practice your jokes, your stories, and your timing, the funnier you will be. Start small, with a few written jokes, a few casual stories around the water cooler. If you are really brave, sign up for an improv class or offer to write a wedding toast. Your funny is worth it.”
