On Being Funny
November 7, 2009 6:24 AM Subscribe
This is a strange question because I'm not sure whether this is something that can be developed or whether it is an innate quality that a person is born with. Here goes, is it possible to become funny? I notice that almost everyone I interact with has a great sense of humor and has the ability to make other people laugh. Is this something that can be cultivated withing someone? I would like to learn to develop the ability to make others laugh and to learn how to have a better sense of humor. Does anyone have any ideas on this? If this is a skill that can be developed, how would one go about developing this? I have a strong feeling that this involves looking at life in a different way, and I'm open to doing this. Please list some ideas if you have any strategies that have worked for you or any other suggestions/thoughts.
