    We are constantly told you're either born with a funny bone or not. After all, being funny is utilizing your creativity with your own view of the world of what's widely accepted notion of the truth, or challenging those beliefs disguised in humor. It's all a personalized creative-involved endeavor; it's not like there is a technical step-by-step blueprint to follow into the working madness of the mind of the funniest man in the world, unlike fixing a car, right?
     
    Not so fast grasshopper! Comedy is more formulaic than you may think (i.e., buildup, anticipation, tension, and release). There are structural elements to guide the creative process to being funny. Most people who are funny already have some forms of subconscious structures they follow without realizing, to generate jokes and come up with their materials, after using them for so long. It's called "a sense of humor" for a reason, meaning you need to develop your senses for it.
     
    Being funny is all about being able to find the humorous side of things, and there are structures and ways for that. In other words, you can be funny! Like all things, it's a skill, and skills can be learned.
