Learn How to Tell Jokes, Part 1 of 2 - Your First Joke

Heard any good jokes lately? I sometimes ask people this, and do you know how they often answer? "Oh, I can never remember jokes!"

That used to be me. I used to never remember a joke. In fact, you could tell me the same joke over and over and Iíd never remember the punch line until you got there. At least I got more than one laugh out of it.

But I felt a little left out. I wanted to tell jokes, too. Jokes are a way of making a person smile. Itís a way of sharing with each other. If you tell a joke well, theyíll remember you with a smile.

I assure you, you can remember jokes. If you can remember a story, you can remember a joke. And you do remember some stories, donít you? Do you remember Hansel and Gretel, or Pinocchio, or The Three Musketeers, or Star Wars? If you remember any stories you can remember a joke, for a joke is just a short story with a funny end.

And just like with a story, you donít need to remember the joke exactly in order to retell it. Here is a secret: usually good joke-tellers are changing small details of the joke -- either to make it better -- or because they donít remember it exactly how it was told to them.

So here is what you can do to learn how to tell jokes. Begin with short jokes:

Patient: "Doctor, I have a terrible problem! I canít seem to remember things I have just said."

Doctor: "When did you first notice the problem?"

Patient: "What problem?

Now immediately look away or close your eyes and retell the joke out loud to no one. Then, all you have to do is call a friend and tell the joke. Try to do it soon. Tell the same joke this afternoon or tomorrow to someone else. Keep telling it. You remember it better with each retelling. You might even change it a little and make it better.
