Clean comedians can make people laugh without resorting to dirty jokes. They are real masters when it comes to making people loosen up and have fun.
Clean comedy is truly an art, especially because comedy is subjective. The same things will amuse not all of us. Also, the truth is no one knows exactly what are the elements of a joke that will make people burst into laughter.
However, although there is no universal recipe, there are some types of jokes that people tend to respond best to.
In this article, we will talk about four surprising reasons why clean comedy is funny.
Let’s get started.
1. You Can Relate To Clean Comedy
Comedy does not have to be complicated. In fact, people amuse themselves the most when they hear stories that are inspired by their everyday lives.
This type of comedy emphasizes those moments in our life that can be a tad bit annoying, frustrating or just plain ordinary.
A good comedian knows how to tell those stories so that the audience can associate elements of their lives to them, and laugh it off.
2. You Anticipate What’s Going To Happen
You know how you sometimes laugh at a joke because you had predicted the ending before it was revealed? This is the first reason why clean comedy will make you laugh out loud.
Predicting what will happen is not going to ruin the joke for you – as some of you may think. We cannot deny, however, that the comedian can take much credit for this.
If the comedian does not know how and when to deliver the punchline, then they can ruin it.
3. It is Unexpected
Yes, we are aware. It is quite the contrary of what we said before, but hear us out.
Clean comedy is funny because the comedian can sometimes make you believe you know what the joke is going to be about. However, the joke ends up being entirely different than what you might expect.
This contrast adds a surprise element to the act, making it particularly entertaining.
This is our favorite part about this type of comedy – the unexpected twist.
4. It is Shocking
Don’t think of shocking as if it were something bad.
On the contrary, something shocking in clean comedy means turning an ordinary situation into an exciting one.
Here’s an example. A woman shopping at the mall with her husband/boyfriend, trying on different clothing items.
Her partner is waiting for her on a coach inside the store. By the time the woman goes back to her husband, he has turned into a mummy. Shocking, right? However, it is also funny because everybody gets the reference.
