Humour style involves regaling everyone with an immersive, almost entirely true, story at a party or dropping some wordplay as a muttered aside, here’s how you fare in the ranking of the funniest zodiac signs:

Chalk it up to the duality of their personality if you will, but Gemini are natural entertainers. Put them in a room full of strangers and they will leave after midnight with the crowd begging them for an encore.

Quick on their feet, a Sagittarian can find humour in nearly every situation. Their blessed lack of a filter means that you’ll find them slicing through the awkwardness of a quiet room  with a one-liner (or ten).

What Leo lacks in comedic talent, they make up for with sheer charisma. Exaggerated bodily movements, generous fictionalising of real-life events and comical actions make them the sovereign of slapstick.

Being one of the most social zodiac signs always works in your favour, but it also helps that Libra possesses a massive creative streak which means that they have never needed to repeat the same punchline twice.

No frat boy-level fart jokes to see here. When an Aries draws a laugh, it is by sneaking in a tongue-in-cheek double entendre while everyone is looking the other way or by dropping some cheeky wordplay that you’d wish you had thought of first.

Don’t go looking for a Virgo in the centre of the room—you’ll instead find them skulking at one of the dark corners, making a satirical observation to seemingly no one or using wry irony to make their point.

If you are looking to roll with a Scorpio, you’d better dust off your armour first. Their uncanny ability to speak exactly what’s on their mind means that their punchlines can often land with the force of a blow.

Without the natural showmanship of a Leo, this earth sign’s sense of humour tends to be adrift. In everyday life, you’ll either find them being funny without trying or trying too hard to get a smile out of someone.

A Capricorn appreciates a cheeky pun as much as the next person, but they aren’t ones to offer up a pity laugh. Their self-deprecating sense of humour, however, means that they aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves when needed.

Life can often get a little too serious for this passionate and brooding sign, but you’ll be surprised to find that they rely on the occasional well-intentioned prank to emerge out of their shell.

While some might describe their dark sense of humour as a coping mechanism, for an Aquarius, it’s just the way they are coded. Their jokes might be something of an acquired taste but once you get over the morbidity, you will find that their observations merit further thought.

Emotional and intense, Pisces can often miss the punchline because they were busy gazing into the distance. Try not to take it personally though because their long-winded stories mean that no one gets their jokes on the first try either.
