Comedy Tips: How To Be Witty

Do you want a fast sense of humour like Conan O’Brien’s?

There are principles behind Conan’s sharp wit which he uses so often. Even understanding these principles can make people find you much funnier.

The principles include:

Out of context analysis: he strips away the context of something pointing out how weird the world we live in everyday actually is.

For example giving some one a Teddy Bear isn’t really that romantic. If you think about it, giving some one a bear holding it’s heart outside it’s body is pretty horrific if you think about it realistically.

Specificity: Be specific. Giving more details to your jokes can make them a lot funnier.

Doubling Down: This is when you follow up on a joke until people laugh. He makes several follow up jokes on the same original one.
