I have the same thing, I've got ADHD, it's hard not to crack a joke when you find something funny, amirite?
But seriously, the big thing I've learned is not to overwork it. Don't crack jokes ALL the time. Space them out. If people want to hear jokes, they go to a comedy club, people don't just wait for you to tell a joke, you act on something that was funny, or occasionally say a joke that you've been working on.
And like others have said, timing and delivery are key. Make sure never to say "and uh.." or "um, and it goes like this", or anything along those lines.
It also depends on how old you are, like Diarago said. It ain't the 5th grade where you can crack a fart joke, haha. And make sure to do DIFFERENT things than other people are doing. It's not as funny the second time. Always remember that.
So as far as "new material" goes, you don't nescessarily need a new style, just different ways of delivering it. And definetly don't quit something your passionate about, if you're having a dry spell with it.

I do have timing, actually. Only people with funny voices are considered funny in my school. Or the popular people. They just laugh at them for brownie points from the cool kids.

Anyway, I have an idea. Tell me if you think it's good or not.

I think I might stop being funny for awhile, and see if anyone notices. If they don't, they would be glad I stopped trying, or just didn't notice it in the first place. If they notice it, they'll either be happy or want me to try to be funny again.

So, is it a good idea?

(And Broderick, you make a lot of good points.)

(And Broderick, you are most certainly right. XD)
I believe that is a good idea.

Idk, apparently I'm a laugh riot. Harharhar sarcasm.
okay how do i sound like a "*****" when im often the butt of the joke? and by delivery boy i meant i make the jokes depending on the situation.

XD I know. I hate popular kids. And thanks for your opinion.

Arcemegus and Lusitania, please don't argue here. I'm not 'mini-modding', I just want all posts to relate to the topic, please. I just don't want people to start constantly posting things unrelated to the topic. I'm asking nicely.

Well, not material per se, but don't try to be funny. Just let it come naturally.

Also, to add on to what everyone else was saying in which I just read, if you say stuff while trying to be funny, you'll just fail at it and you won't succeed. While few of your friends may have laughed, those other people sure weren't laughing themselves. You could've recently just said something retarded just to get some people to laugh just into trying to be funny to get attention or to cause your friends' laughter. That usually doesn't work like that 100% of the time. They'll usually be disappointed and most of the time when they're laughing, it's because you've been saying things inappropriately. Don't attempt to do it at all. Bottom line! Trust me! If you go around seeing someone trying to be funny by saying inappropriate things or making inappropriate comments or jokes, they're just trying to get attention or are attention seekers and it's attention WE DON'T GIVE!

Also, what people usually do with people they never found funny to begin with (especially in all levels of grade school) is just never laugh at their jokes even if they become funnier. One of your problems could be that your audience isn't nearly as varied as it should be for you to get reliable feedback.

With that in mind, you should just do as others in this thread have told you: let it come naturally. If you feel you have to force it and meticulously plan your delivery, then maybe you have two problems rather than just one.

Well, now I sort of understand what you mean by 'natural', a lot more at least.

And I mostly was funny to get attention, SPPF. DX Why do you hate meeee...

And I'll try to be more natural. I'll post back here and tell you how it works out.

Doing something is worth it if one really loves doing it.

I actually really like getting in arguments with teachers. It's fun.

I say new material, but in reality I say stop trying to be funny. Being funny isn't about effort.
