How to tell jokes as a story…
Telling a joke is one thing, getting people involved is another… to get them involved, you must get into the joke, start telling it as if it were a true story… with some drama, make eye contact, use your hands, change the tone of your voice as if you have something to tell of a secretive nature… people love rumors, so get into the story yourself as if it were the first time you heard it also… people will only possibly realize it’s a joke half way through and by that time, getting to the punch line is irresistible.

Patience…
Some jokes take a long set up and require that an audience be patient so – find an attentive individuals if need be.

Don’t worry about the fumble…
For example, yesterday, my father began telling a joke to my wife and my daughter-in-law and remembered half way through that he had forgotten one part. Not thinking it was necessary, he proceeded to the end. They laughed politely. I think that they thought that either they did not understand the punch line or it was not a funny joke. Remembering what he left out, he added it after and they laughed a little and said: “Oh, now I get it”. Polite and patient. Next time, I know he will rehearse a little before launching into a longer joke.

The awkward “I don’t get it?” response
Some people just cannot seem to get certain jokes. Be patient when giving further explanation of the joke and laugh with them when they finally get it.

Yes Yes, I know it already…
Sometimes you’ll hear “Oh, I heard that one before,”. When you hear that, smile, make an offhand comment like “nice” and continue, focusing your energy and actions on the unsuspecting audience…

Beware the offensive nature of a joke…
The only time that interrupting a joke teller is prudent is when you hear them getting into the murky water of racist or inappropriate stereotyping. As in: “Did you hear how many _______ it takes to ……?” To save everyone embarrassment, you might hear someone say half jokingly, “Wait a minute, that’s not good for me.” That is the que to stop and quickly enter the backup joke… so if you are prepared, you might start a different more appropriate joke like: “But I did hear the one where a husband.”
These are simple rules of thumb that can help you answer how to be funny, but practice will make perfect…

Build your reputation
The more you tell “stories” as jokes, the more people will take you as a jokes authority. They will already be mentally prepared to laugh or go along with you when you start the jokes… Almost every meal I sit down to with my family, my father will have a great story to tell, and even after more than 30 years of listening, I am waiting for the joke… there is always a good laugh around the table…
