How do I tell a joke?

(Hide this help text)

  • You must first be logged in. If you do not have an account yet, please sign up for one here.
  • Click on the "Tell A Joke" button located in the upper-right corner of any page.
  • Choose what phone number you would like us to call.

Tip

Using a land line over a mobile phone will give you better audio quality.

  • If you would like to add another phone number, click on the "Add A New Phone Number" link.
  • Once you have the number you'd like us to call set, click the "Call Me" button. Our Web site will then call your phone.
  • Answer the call and go through the prompts.
  • After you tell your joke, hang up and click the "Next" button.

Tip

If you ever want to start over, you can click the "Cancel" button at any time.

  • Almost there! The last few steps require you to include some information about the joke. Please add a title for the joke and tags to help other users find it.

What are tags?

Tags are a way for users to "label" jokes. For example, if you tell a blonde joke, by adding the tag "blonde" other users can easily find the joke--along with others tagged "blonde"--when searching for that tag.

  • Choose a filth factor rating so others know what they are getting into. Please make sure a joke labeled "Mild" doesn't contain any material unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18. Therefore, no swearing!
  • Click on the "Post Joke" button at the bottom of the page.

Your joke is now posted! Check out the subsequent page after completion to learn how you can share your jokes with friends, family, and the general public. Remember that the more your jokes are shared and listened to - the better chance you have of winning contests!

How do I play a joke?

(Hide this help text)

  • There are several methods in which you can land on a joke's page, whether it's from a link on Comic Wonder, or an external source.
  • Once on a play page (an example joke is our 2007 Comic Wonder of the Year winner), click on the play button in our player.

Help! I can't use the player!

There are a few prerequisites to playing a joke. First, you must have Flash installed in your browser. You can install that here. It's a safe download and is considered a standard tool on the Internet. Second, you must enable JavaScript within your browser's settings. Third, Check that the volume on the player isn't muted, and that your computer's volume isn't off.

Because of the nature of the Internet, jokes are best played on a high-speed Internet connection. Dial-up users will experience some choppiness and possibly other playback quality issues.

If you continue to have further issues, please contact us via support@comicwonder.com.

  • After you tell a joke, be sure to share it. There are several sharing mechanisms available close to the joke player on that joke's page.
  • The more shares, votes, favorites, and plays your joke gets, the better chance it has at winning.

How can I tell which jokes are clean or dirty?

(Hide this help text)

Comic Wonder has a three-tier system. Jokes, when initially told, are given a rating of "Mild," "Medium," or "Spicy," which is visible wherever the joke information--such as title and author--is shown. Anyone not logged in or under the age of 18 can not play Medium or Spicy jokes.

If you listen to a Mild joke and feel it should be Medium or Spicy, feel free to use the flagging form located near the joke player. We respond very quickly to any notifications sent to us via that form.
