This Is What Gets Your Zodiac Sign Creasing With LaughterIt would be tough and quite frankly depressing to go throughout life without having a sense of humor. Finding humor where perhaps we shouldn’t can give us some respite from the day to day challenges that we all encounter. We each have our specific preferred types of comedy, but there are certainly strong trends among each zodiac sign. Here is what makes your zodiac sign laugh most.
The importance of entertaining ourselves through humor is not to be understated; there’s a host of scientifically backed reasons why smiling is good for your overall well-being. In addition to this, watching and listening to funny people or shows helps you to develop yourzodiac sense of humor. It should go without saying that making others laugh is not only a way to make friends but is also an attractive trait. Are you one of the 5 funniest zodiac signs?
This is what gets your zodiac sign crying with laughter
That being said, not everybody will always appreciate your jokes because people have different comedy taste. A joke which had your friends rolling around crying with laughter could be equally met with an awkward silence from your work colleagues a day later. It’s important to know your crowd, that’s why we’re telling you what makes each of the zodiac signs cackle uncontrollably.
People might label it immature but Aries really loves in-your-face physical comedy. They love classic, old school gags which are usually at someone else’s expense like the surprise pie to the face. You may call it schadenfreude but it’s just a bit of fun at the end of the day to them.
Life is funny
Taurus amuse themselves simply by looking at the world around them and the peculiar things which occur within it. They like to take a step back from the madness which unfolds with a big bag of popcorn and revel at the idiocy and fickleness they see. They won’t say anything but will continue smirking from a distance.
Geminis get their kick from simply humoring other people. Of course, they have their own stories but they take more pleasure engaging with other people’s unfortunate situations. They’ll let them finish their story, only interrupting to add well-timed (and sometimes sarcastic) comments or to ask leading questions which are sure to be rewarded with funnier responses.
It’s common knowledge that Cancers are occasionally prone to bouts of self-pity and their style of humor aligns with this personality trait. Self-deprecating comedy is the sub-genre of choice for this sensitive zodiac sign. They see it as comedy which hurts nobody but benefits everybody.
No surprise here really, the dramatic zodiac Leo likes stand-up comedy. Performing live takes a lot of confidence, talent and quick-wit – all of which Leos have in abundance. Don’t be surprised if you hear an “I could probably do that, right?!” slip out from your Leo friend the next time you watch a HBO comedy special.
Libra is a bit like Aries when it comes to comedy, but only when it happens to people they think deserve it. They find nothing more pleasurable than schadenfreude befalling the bad guy in the situation. YouTube is their favorite website as it’s home to the finest ironic fail compilations on the internet.
If you're friends with a Virgo you’ll know that sarcasm is their best friend, sometimes quite literally. Some say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit but this zodiac would disagree. This satirical comedy is very hit-and-miss – it all depends on how sensitive the audience is.
Unsurprisingly Scorpios lean towards the darker and more taboo side of comedy. Your style of comedy is perhaps even more polemic than Virgo’s but when someone laughs at your favorite comedian’s set, you know they could be a friend for life.
Any and all genres
Comedy is the area in which Sagittarius reigns supreme amongst the other zodiacs. Regarded as the funniest zodiac, it’s only natural that they also have the most sophisticated sense of humor. That isn’t to say they only find complicated jokes funny but rather that they can appreciate almost all types of comedy for what they are.
Capricorns are known for being slightly uptight and stiff-lipped but that doesn’t mean they don’t know how to laugh. They take advantage of their aloof exterior with deadpan humor that throws people off. They’ll reply “Not much, just robbed a bank” when you ask how their weekend was and will walk straight past you with the straightest of faces.
Just weird things
Just as there are strong differences between Aquarius and the other signs, so too is there variation in their style of comedy. With this sign, the weirder it is, the better it is. As a highly independent zodiac sign, they value individuality even in comedy, so the accidental whale noise you made at work could be enough to set this sign off.
As the most tolerant and empathetic sign, there’s something rather cathartic about watching romcoms like Mean Girls where people reveal their nastier, superficial zodiac personalities. It’s not so much that you want to act like them, it’s more that you find their personalities so intriguing and ridiculous that it’s funny.
