is the tendency of particular cognitive
experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives
from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the
balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours (Latin: humor, "body
fluid"), controlled human health and emotion.

It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli. Laughter can
arise from such activities as being tickled, or from humorous stories or
thoughts. Most commonly, it is considered a visual expression of a number
of positive emotional states, such as joy, mirth, happiness, relief, etc.
On some occasions, however, it may be caused by contrary emotional states
such as embarrassment, apology, or confusion such as nervous laughter or
courtesy laugh. Age, gender, education, language, and culture are all
factors as to whether a person will experience laughter in a given

Inherently Funny Word
is a word which can be found amusing without any given
context, for reasons ranging from onomatopoeia to phonosemantics. Such
words have been used by a range of influential comedians to enhance the

Humor is a creative way of
expressing information and sometimes a complex form of
information, which makes certain humor hard to understand. This
is why humor is a form of
intelligence because you need to have retained a bit of relevant
information in order to understand
the joke. So humor can be a creative way of testing a persons
knowledge of past events.
But humor does not come
because interpretations are not
the same for every person.
Some people could be offended while other people will find humor
funny and not offensive, and some will even find it funny and
disturbing at the same time. There is sometimes
truth in humor
though humor is not the most correct or accurate method for
communicating truth, which is another risk of using humor as a
way to communicate information.
Most people will say that they laugh because it’s funny. Then what is
? Babies don’t know what’s funny, yet we see
babies cry and all babies laugh. So laughter is something that we are
born with. Why? And why does laughter and sadness become more complex as we get older?
There is an intelligent concept when it comes to making people
laugh. Not so much to induce laughter, but to communicate a point of view that is funny to some and real to others.
It's important to know why a person gets a joke or why a
person laughs at a particular thing.
But it's also very important to know why a person did not get
the joke or laugh at the same thing as you did.
You're 30 times more likely to laugh if you're with somebody else than if you're alone.

is a display of
humor in which words are used
within a specific and well-defined narrative structure to make people
laugh. It takes the form of a story, usually with dialogue, and ends in a
punch line. It is in the punch line that the audience becomes aware that
the story contains a second, conflicting meaning. This can be done using a
pun or other word play such as irony, a logical incompatibility, nonsense
or other means. A joke is a short humorous piece of oral literature in
which the funniness culminates in the final sentence, called the punchline…
In fact, the main condition is that the tension should reach its highest

is a performer whose act consists of imitating the
others. The word usually refers to a professional comedian/entertainer who
specializes in such performances and has developed a wide repertoire of
impressions, including adding to them, often to keep pace with current
events. Impressionist performances are a classic casino entertainment
genre. Someone who imitates one particular person without claiming a wide
range, such as a lookalike, is instead called an impersonator. In very
broad contexts, "impersonator" may be substituted for "impressionist"
where the distinction between the two is less important than avoiding
confusion with the use of "impressionist" in painting and music. Usually
the most "impressive" aspect of the performance is the vocal fidelity to
the target – usually a politician or a famous person. Props may also be
employed, such as glasses or hats, but these are now considered somewhat
old-fashioned and cumbersome: the voice is expected to carry the act.
Because animated cartoons often lampoon famous people (sometimes
obliquely), a facility for impressions is one of the marks of a successful
voice actor. Many cartoon characters are intended to be recognized by the
audience as evoking a specific celebrity, even when not explicitly named.
With such indirect references, the entertainment value does not lie so
much in the technical achievement of exactly reproducing the voice so much
as in merely making it recognizable; the joke lies in the reference to a
celebrity, not in its rendition. An impersonation is a replication of
someone's speech or body language. While most people try to impersonate
someone's voice, a truly great impressions take the whole body. Whether
you want to impress your friends or an audience, good impersonations
require little more than attention to detail and practice.

And being a comedian is sometimes a contradiction to being an effective
educator. But learning can be fun, so using some

so why not.
But if you become a comedian, you will have a hard
time getting people to take you serious, it will be hard to know
where the joke ends and the lesson begins. So I chose education instead of
a career in comedy. This is not to say that I don't respect or appreciate
comedy or comedians or entertainers. I
have always admired their talents and their commitment to their
craft. Besides, laughter is incredibly important part of being
human and should always be an important part of being human.

Though humor and laughter is incredibly therapeutic, humor can

career in comedy. But I'm so glad that other people chose
to be comics, because some one has to do it.

questions in order to understand a statements true meaning.
A woman once told me that there is always a little truth in
. Yes there is, but truth is not the always the intention of the joke
for if it were a lot of jokes wouldn’t be funny. Though a joke may be used
to expose the truth we should never judge the method of delivery,
especially when other methods have failed. But there is definitely danger
in joking about serious subjects. Dirty jokes have always got people in
trouble because they choose the wrong time and the wrong place for their
joke. But at the same time people like Howard Stern have made a living
using perverted humor and dirty jokes. It seems that we don’t want
perverted humor and dirty jokes to go away. We just want more
responsibility and compassion without infringing on free speech. So can
this type of humor be responsible and compassionate and still be funny?
That has always been a challenge for comedians and writers. They have
always found the right way and they have always the wrong way. Both ways
are funny, but are both ways necessary? Another thing I noticed is that
perverted humor is more funny to males that it is to females. I will watch
something and laugh my ass off but when I watch that same funny clip with
a girl friend, for some reason, that same humorous clip is not funny
anymore. Why? Is it that I'm more aware of how funny it really is or is it
just more funny to guys. Is certain humor gender-based? Maybe it's a good
thing that women don't laugh at all our stupid humor.

How to Stop Taking Jokes Seriously
How to Take a Joke
The joke is, there is no joke. We laugh at bad jokes because we're
stupid. We make fun of each other because we're stupid. If I
wanted to truly make someone feel better, I would find out
what would make them feel better, and then do that. There
are many different ways to make a person laugh and be happy, so to me, being a
truly gifted comedian is also being excellent communicator,
which I never was, because many of my jokes failed, not
because my jokes were horrible, it was because I was
ignorant, because the schools I went to were inadequate, as they
still are today. Freedom of speech can never live up to it's
full potential if you never fully educate people to fully
understand what speech is. So this is a language problem,
and an education problem. Something doesn't have to be a
joke in order for it to be offensive, because anything can
be offensive to anyone. So this is a language problem, a
communication problem, and an education problem. Being
offended because someone else is offended by what you said,
is offensive. We laugh at our flaws, not to make light of
them, but to overcome them. But if all we do is just joke
about our flaws, we will never overcome our flaws. We have
to learn how to overcome our flaws, we just can't laugh them
away. There's nothing wrong with you because you don't get
the joke. But at the same time, there's also nothing right
with you just because you did get the joke. Just because you
think something is funny, doesn't make you a better person
then someone else who thinks that same thing isn't funny.
Freedom of speech is nothing if you never fully understand
what speech is. So this is a language problem, a
communication problem, and an education problem, this is not
a joke problem. Say what you will, but if someone cannot
understand you, then you have to take the time to explain to
them, don't expect people to figure things for themselves.
Since you opened your mouth, you have to take responsibility
for your words, no matter how you thought your words were
supposed to be understood. If you want to twist words, then
you should learn how to untwist words so they're understood.
If you want to be ignorant, then expect ignorant reactions.
Freedoms will always be abused and misused, especially when
people are never fully educated enough in order to
understand how to use freedoms effectively, efficiently, or
accurately. This is a language problem, a communication
problem, and an education problem, this is not a joke
Being intelligent means you will still get to laugh, but you
will now consider the time, the place and the reasons more
carefully before making a joke. We still want people to make
horrible jokes, we just want our jokes at the right time and
in the right place. But we still have this problem of people
repeating horrible jokes when they're not supposed to. Hey!
I didn't say it, that person said it. That always sounds really
stupid, doesn't it? The words came out of your mouth but you
blame someone else for the words.
Jon Stewart admitted that his show did not stop political
corruption and crime from increasing. Or did It stop the
scumbags in the media from lying and misleading the public.
All it did is remind us of just how f*cked up people are in
politics and in the media.
Even his jokes about corporate crimes did nothing,
especially when he was taking advertising dollars from the
same scumbags he made jokes about, hypocrite yes, but at
least he used some of that money to fight the abuses and
make us aware of criminals. But just making jokes about how
f*cked up people are does not stop them from being f*cked
up. I still watched the show anyway because it was one of
the few shows on TV that were entertaining enough to watch.
And it was still important to inform people about how f*cked
up things are, but it didn't show us the ways to correct
these flaws, it just made us aware of these flaws.
is a comedy genre in which the act
consists mainly of offensive insults directed at the performer's audience
or other performers. Typical targets for insult include individuals in the
show's audience, the town hosting the performance, or the subject of a
roast. An insult comedian often maintains a competitive and interactive
relationship with his or her audience. The style has been described as
"festive abuse". The style can be distinguished from an act based on
satire, or political humor. Insult comedy is often used to deflect or
silence hecklers even when the rest of the show is not focused around it.
is an event in which a specific individual, a guest of
honor, is subjected to good-natured jokes at their expense intended to
amuse the event's wider audience. This type of event was created as a mock
counter to a
. Such events are intended to honor a specific individual in a
unique way. In addition to jokes and insult comedy, such events may also
involve genuine praise and tributes. The implication is that the roastee
is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious
or insult, and it is seen by some
as a great honor to be roasted. The individual is surrounded by friends,
fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well
during the course of the evening. The party and presentation itself are
both referred to as a "roast". The host of the event is called the "roastmaster".
Anyone who is honored in such a way is said to have been "roasted".
into an art form, he was the king of
insults. And he played that part extremely well. He would
say things that were so rude and embarrassing that you just had
to laugh, because you knew he was kidding, he was hilarious.
He had that face and the personality with an uncanny ability
seem funny, so most people found it
you just love him for it, mostly because he was fulfilling a
type of fantasy for us, that fantasy that we all have of
being able to say anything that we want, things that we
would like to say, but we know we can't say. So for most
people, it's a lot safer to imagine being a rude person,
then it is to actually be a rude person. So in a way he's providing a type of service,
which shows you what you would look like if you were a jerk,
and at the same time, he's letting people know that laughing
at ourselves is good for us, and that we should never let
anyone get under our skin just because they have insulted
us, or perceive to be insulting to us. And that's the key,
he's not being honest, he's just making people laugh. He had
a special talent of making his misery make you feel happy
and feel better about yourself. That's how incredible he
was. He had a lot of material too, but he also had a
spontaneous wit that was sharp as a knife. So he was not
just reliant on his memory, he was also very adaptable to
particular moments. And that takes a lot of practice. But once a
comedian fills a particular
and perfects it, they can pretty much ride that
wave for ever. And he did. Don provided a great service
by making people laugh. And it's kind of funny to know a
person who actually made a
living being a jerk, it's totally amazing, and Don was totally respected
and loved for it too, and not just because he was a comedian,
but you also knew deep down inside that Don was a nice
person, he only played a part for us, how cool is that,

is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) changes his or

usually a puppeteered "dummy". The act of ventriloquism is
ventriloquizing, and the ability to do so is commonly called in English

is a person who manipulates an inanimate object
that might be shaped like a human, animal or mythical creature, or quite
easily might be any kind of object to create the illusion that the puppet
is "alive." The puppeteer may be visible to or hidden from the audience. A
puppeteer can operate a puppet indirectly by the use of strings, rods,
wires, electronics or directly by his or her own hands placed inside the
puppet or holding it externally or any other part of the body- such as the
legs. Some puppet styles require two or more puppeteers to work together
to create a single puppet character.
is a puppet controlled from above using wires or
strings depending on regional variations. A marionette's puppeteer is
called a marionettist. Marionettes are operated with the puppeteer hidden
or revealed to an audience by using a vertical or horizontal control bar
in different forms of theatres or entertainment venues. They have also
been used in films and on television. The attachment of the strings varies
according to its character or purpose.

is a genre of comedy centered on a fixed set of
characters who carry over from episode to episode. Sitcoms can be
contrasted with sketch comedy, where a troupe may use new characters in
each sketch, and stand-up comedy, where a comedian tells jokes and stories
to an audience. Sitcoms originated in radio, but today are found mostly on
television as one of its dominant narrative forms. This form can also
include mockumentaries. A situation comedy television program may be
recorded in front of a studio audience, depending on the program's
production format. The effect of a live studio audience can be imitated or
enhanced by the use of a laugh track.

This goes way beyond comprehension and mood. It’s more about
personal beliefs and personal experience. There are just some things that you shouldn’t make fun of. Is
that why comedians are so attracted to this type of taboo? Is
there humor in shocking people? Why do I seem to remember more

20 Classic Movie Farts
Fart Sound Effects
What's a Fart made of and what's in a Fart
Fart Types and Meanings
One-second duration, nice resonant reverberation, and
pungent odor cloud with a nearly instantaneous 5-foot
radius. Your standard, everyday, friendly fart.
Sounds loud and butch, e.g., 'BRAAAMMPPP!' Smells like a
cross between a decaying meadow muffin on a hot day and a
Smells very much like rotten eggs (or hydrogen sulfide). A
powerful odor which tends to put people off lunch. Often
rips out in the fashion of a Bunbuster
'BRAAAP!' Sounds something like a Beefy One, except much
more sudden and much more powerful. May smell either eggy or
beefy. Leaves your asshole smarting. You really feel these
Sends seismic ripples to the next town. Rips the seams in
the crotch of your pants. This fart genuinely hurts, and you
can still feel it 20 minutes later. Anyone sitting nearby
may experience hearing loss.
Sputters to a start, but then keeps putt-putting along
spewing out an endless cloud of dirty, noxious fumes.
Surprise! You didn't even know that it was there, but
suddenly . . . 'BRRMP!' Yellow surprise
Sounds just like a gunshot. Unbelievably loud indoors. Hard
to believe that this emanates from between your buttocks.
Bullet explodes into billions of virulent odor molecules.
Gunshot farts are relatively rare but, like guns, very
You can't make an omelet without breaking wind, a B. Kliban
Puny and unsatisfying. Sounds a bit like a muffled 'Wheeeek,'
but smells foul.
The kind that seems to be a fart
right up to the point at which you release it. At this
stage, matters become less sure, as it feels too solid for
comfort. You go to the bathroom and check your underpants at
the first possible opportunity.
It feels like it's going to be a large beefy one, but out
comes a tiny little squeaker fart plus the head of something
massive. You tense your buttocks fast, lest you give birth
to the brown equivalent of a zeppelin.
The type of fart that seems harmless, but then brings a
small poop as a housewarming gift. You shuffle off to the
toilet and give thanks you weren't in a business meeting or
job interview when it happened. If you were, you're screwed.
Bubbly! Sometimes messy too.
SBD (Silent But Deadly):
Totally inaudible but somehow causes all the occupants in a
room to collapse. Smell is undefined because nasal
investigators haven't had time to analyze the odor before
passing out. (This one is also known as SBL: Silent But
Lethal and Toxic Assassin.) Dangerous Gases sign!
GNL (Gambled 'n' Lost):
You take a gamble that it's going to be a fart and stay
where you are, but tragically come to realize that this is
much more than a fart... Next big gamble: do you put your
underpants in the laundry basket and hope your wife won't
notice, do you wash 'em out yourself, or do you throw 'em
The original wet fart, which leaves a mark on your pants and
gives you a cold wet sticky sensation when you walk. Try to
avoid this one if you're wearing white trousers.
Not Now Please!
You feel the presence of a mighty fart but are unable to
release it due to your situation (first date, new customer,
important business meeting, etc.). You clench your buttocks
together so hard you nearly have a stroke, and wait for the
pressure to subside. Success depends upon a number of
factors, but in the end you're probably going to have to
face the music (literally). Or you can try the stealth
You let it out as silently as possible and nobody hears it.
You discreetly take deep sniffs and smell nothing. You think
you got away with it. But 30 seconds later, as if released
from a stasis field, everybody starts to cough and splutter.
You point to the person next to you and try to look
The first fart of the morning. All that broccoli, beans, and
beer you had for dinner last night has decayed and fermented
into about 1,000 ml of noxious gas just dying to escape from
your rectum. Whether you let go under the covers when you
first wake up or hold it until you're taking your early
morning pee, releasing that first fart of the day feels oh,
so good and sets the tone for the whole day.
Sound like they have some juice in them.
A fart you make in bed -- any kind at all -- followed up by
holding your partner's head under the bedclothes so that
he/she can get the full effect of it. Good for moving a
stalled divorce process along. Very bad early in your

Little Nancy was in the garden
filling in a hole when her neighbor peered over the fence.
Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was up to, he
politely asked, "What are you up to there, Nancy?"
"My goldfish died," replied Nancy tearfully without looking up,
"and I've just buried him."
The neighbor was very concerned. "That's an awfully big hole for
a goldfish, isn't it?"
Nancy patted down the last heap of dirt then replied, "That's
because he's inside your fucking cat."

"Oh, sure I do, but I really don't feel like spending the next

A first-grade teacher, Ms Brooks,
was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher
asked, "Harry, what's your problem?"
Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My
sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is!
I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!"
Ms. Brooks had enough. She took Harry to the principal's
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher
explained to the principal what the situation was. The
principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test.
If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go
back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained
to him and he agreed to take the test.
Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"
Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"
And so it went with every question the principal thought
a 3rd grader should know.
