What's fun to do at Comic Wonder?

Tell Jokes

Our easy to use phone system makes it super simple to tell a joke online. All you need is a phone and a joke (preferably a funny one).

Once you have that, you can hop over to our Tell a Joke page. Remember that it's just as much about the performance as it is the punchline!

If you can't think of any good jokes to tell, you can browse our hundreds of text jokes waiting to be told at Joke Limbo!

Find Jokes

Comic Wonder has hundreds of great audio jokes, with more and more being told each day.

You can find a joke at our Grand Central Station. It's our one-stop-shop to find the most recent jokes told, the best jokes of the week, our all-time greatest hits, and much more.

Compete for fame, fortune, and a coveted trophy

That's right, a trophy. The fame and $2,500 cash you'll win is really just a bonus.

Jump over to our 2008 contest page for more info about our Comic Wonder of the Year contest. There'll you find past winners to both the Comic Wonder of the Month and Comic Wonder of the Week contests, as well as information on how you can be the next Comic Wonder.


If you are a crack joke-teller but you need some material, you're going to want to visit Joke Limbo!

What is Joke Limbo? As we all know, the internets are packed full of text jokes just waiting to be told. At Comic Wonder, we are giving them a safe home in Joke Limbo, where they will wait until one of you brings them to life.

You can save a joke from Joke Limbo and compete for the Comic Wonder of the year at the same time. To find out more about our ongoing contest, visit our contest page.

And from now on, if someone sends you a text joke, send it to tellthisjoke@comicwonder.com and we'll add it to Joke Limbo.



The 2008 Comic Wonder of the Year: Got what it takes?

Top Joke-Telling Tips

Don't read your joke
The best jokes told are the ones not read from a script. Try to memorize and practice your joke before telling it. If you can tell it without looking at notes, it will sound much more natural. NOTE - No one really says, "he replied" or "she responded." These are purely written joke phrases. Get rid of them!
Get into character
Change your voice or accent for each of the characters in your joke and try making some impromptu sound effects to accentuate the story.
Joke-telling is storytelling. Use details (place names, character descriptions, etc) to make your joke sound more like a real story that you are recounting to a friend. Details draw the audience in and disguise the impending, and hopefully hilarious, twist ending.
Go retro with a Land Line
If you don't have a great cell signal, or a high quality cordless phone, you may be better off going old-school with a landline.
Don't distort
Don't hold the phone too close to your mouth and don't yell. You'd be surprised how sensitive telephone microphones are.
Record it again
If your train of thought derails halfway through the joke, re-record it. Umm's and missed cues should not make it into a Comic Wonder-worthy performance.
