How to tell a corny joke

The key to making a corny joke funny is your delivery.

Delivery is especially applicable when the joke's answer is a pun.

That said, try and be patient and put more emphasis on the joke's punch line so your audience can really grasp why the joke is funny.

Of course, it also helps if you add emotions and positive energy to your voice while you're delivering the joke.

Telling a joke in a monotone makes it difficult to get the point across.

Therefore, adding inflection in your cadence while telling the joke and its punch line can make it hilarious!
