Especially in my profession where there’s kids who try to smart mouth me, and even the most innocent sounding burn results in all the other kids launching into laughter and “ooooooooo!!!!”
I find that being humorous is not always a natural talent that as some say. It can also be an acquired talent through practice. You just have to find the angle that works for you.
