Laugh Tactics

Exact phrases to develop your sense of humor, master witty remarks, make people laugh, and be funnier — even if you’re not naturally funny.

Laugh Tactics is full of strategies that dissect, break down, and analyze all of the types of humor that you’ll encounter in daily conversation — stuff you can really use with people you talk to. We’re not all trying to become standup comedians, and this isn’t a book about ha-ha jokes with setups and punch lines.
Learn to simply make a better impression on people, put them at ease, charm them, and make them smile with you.

Learn witticisms, quips, retorts, comebacks, and wisecracks without being cheesy or corny.

Don’t worry if you feel like you’ve never understood humor or how to be funny. I’ve done the work for you and analyzed everyone from comedy writers to standup comedians and given you step-by-step, complete guidance to use common joke structures in everyday situations. Adaptable to any premise, topic, or setting!

Strategies to instantly be clever and witty and sound like a world-class comedian.

Patrick King is an internationally bestselling author and sought-after Social Skills and Conversation Coach. He teaches building rapport, and a major part of that is using humor to connect with others — shared moments of laughter are incredible bonding moments, and you'll be able to create them without being «that guy/girl».

    Know Your Emotion

    You need to be clear as to the emotion you want to evoke. It has to be articulable, and you have to know it beforehand.

    Last but not least, misdirection is a funny way to express your feelings on something. If you really feel X about a topic, then use misdirection! “Opposite of X, but actually X,” will almost always be received far better than “Gosh, I hate X.”

    For example, if you give somebody the compliment “Wow, you are great at navigating,” continue on and give them a title or label, such as “Milwaukee’s very own Magellan,” or “my go-to personal GPS during road trips.”
