Football Jokes: Tips For Telling These Jokes

A.) Remember, you can adapt these jokes to your favorite team’s chief opponent. If you’re a Packers’ fan, make the butt of the joke the Chicago Bears or the Minnesota Vikings.

B.) Make sure you have the right audience for your joke-telling. If you have several non-sports fans in the mix, the joke might be destined to fail. Know your audience.

C.) Get the words right. The set-up and the finish must be spot-on.

D.) Have a back-up plan. If one of your jokes flops, come back with a tried-and-tested winner.

E.) Confidence is king. If you don’t think it’s funny or you’re questioning yourself, your audience will sense it. Be sure of yourself. Go in with great material.
