3 Jokes That Will Take Control Of Any Situation


Published -

Very few people can control a conversation better than a comedian.

They have arsenals of jokes that put rude people in their place and redirect the flow of conversation. Even when there isn’t a conflict, when a joke lands and everybody laughs – there is a period of space where you can redirect the conversation wherever you like.

In this video we are going to look at 3 specific types of jokes that Russell Brand uses to masterfully control a confrontation on MSNBC. We’re also going to see how you can use these same jokes to confidently steer conversation in your own life.

How can puns be used to lighten the mood in an awkward social situation?

Humor can be a powerful tool when used correctly, and in certain situations, it can be the key to taking control. Whether it’s diffusing a tense situation or breaking the ice in a room full of strangers, a well-timed joke can have a remarkable effect. In this article, we will explore three jokes that can take control of any situation.

1. The “Pun” Joke

Puns are a tried and true method of breaking the ice and making people laugh. These types of jokes play on multiple meanings of a single word, leading to a clever play on words that can leave people chuckling.

For example, if you find yourself in an awkward social situation or meeting someone new, you could use a pun to lighten the mood. Let’s say you spill your drink on someone, instead of apologizing awkwardly, you could say, “Looks like I just made a splash entrance!” This pun not only acknowledges the situation but diffuses any embarrassment that you or the other person might have felt.

2. The “Self-Deprecating” Joke

Self-deprecating humor involves making fun of oneself in a lighthearted and relatable way. We all have flaws, quirks, and insecurities, and by making a joke about them, we can show others that we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

A great example of this type of joke would be: “I’m not great at math, but I’m pretty sure I spent more time trying to calculate the tip in my head than it would have taken me to check my phone.” This joke not only acknowledges a common struggle but shows that you can laugh at yourself and put others at ease.

3. The “Unexpected Twist” Joke

Sometimes the funniest jokes are the ones that take the listener by surprise. These types of jokes rely on a punchline that subverts the audience’s expectations.

For example, let’s say you’re giving a presentation, and it’s not going well. You could use the unexpected twist to change the room’s energy by saying something like, “Well, that didn’t go as planned. But on the bright side, I’ve discovered a surefire way to clear a room!” The unexpected twist in this joke transforms what could have been an awkward situation into an opportunity to have a laugh and move on.


By incorporating humor into our daily interactions, we can create a more lighthearted and positive atmosphere. These three types of jokes are just a few examples of how humor can be used to take control of a situation. Sometimes, all it takes is a clever pun, a self-deprecating joke, or an unexpected twist to break the ice and put yourself and those around you at ease.
