I would say the best thing to do would be to get a piece of paper and write down things you really think are funny. These could be movies, shows, specific episodes, certain comics, a particular scene, a phrase, particular comedic techniques (if you’ve given this any thought). Basically, anything that makes you laugh. Once you have a decent list, go through and think about why each one makes you laugh. What makes it funny? Try to find parallels among them, and pay attention to any recurring themes. This should give you a good idea of what you think is funny and why, and you can use this information to start to develop your comedic style.
If you do this, I hope it helps you.[/quote]
Thanks. I’ve actually been trying to do something similar. If I notice something someone said/did/looked like that I found funny, I try to remember it and figure out similar jokes or patterns of behaviour.
And sometimes, it works. But it’s usually when I’m completely carefree (to the point that it’s nearly dangerous) and relaxed.
I also try to sorround myself with people who make me laugh and who seem to be on the same comedic (is that a word?) wavelength as me.
However this seems too simple. Is this what I should do? Should I just relax and try to attune myself with comedy? Will AXE spray really get me laid?
