with his popular new youtube channel some good news john krazinski is showing how powerful it can be to combine humility positivity and humor so in this video we’ll be covering five ways john is able to make people laugh that you can use in any situation from school to work to dates that will get people to instantly like you more at the end we’ll also cover a major mistake most people make and how you can avoid it the first secret to john’s charm is that he uses go-to stories when he finds a story that gets a laugh he uses it again watch as he tells the same story on both jimmy kimmel and graham norton and he said says here that you’re an actor and i said yeah he said would i know you from anything i went you know we redid the uk version of the office oh i love that show it says uh who are you visiting here i said my wife and he says is she an actress and i said yeah said uh would i know her i said i i don’t know and he said what’s her name and i said emily blunt as he was writing something and he went you you you married emily blunt and i go yeah and he goes okay go let’s go so the next time you tell a story that gets a great reaction make a mental note to yourself having a handful of stories you know get a laugh will instantly boost your confidence and conversation just be mindful you don’t use the same story over and over with the same audience beyond that john does something very specific during the jokes in his stories that guarantees he gets a laugh he acts out his characters watch as john tells the story of how he and his wife met president obama he was so nervous to meet him that he said oh hey how you doing oh my gosh i really love what you do god i love all your movies and she went and i said emily and she was like wait wait and so i was like you’re acting very dumb and he goes can’t forget about this guy i love the office and i went playing the characters in your stories is one of the fastest ways to take a bland story and make it laugh out loud funny and it’s much easier than it looks there are two key things to play with if you want to play a character your body and your voice for an easy example watch how john makes use of his hands in order to add absurdity to this next joke you were a proper fan of this oh i was full stalker status yeah i was just like hey you want to go on a date with me imagine if john told that joke without using his hands it wouldn’t have been nearly as funny you’ll see in this next clip how john can use his entire body to get a laugh too hazel’s teacher says hey violet want to come in in the classroom and talk for a bit that was the first time she knew it was about her and she turned to my wife and went oh my god john takes his physical comedy even further by altering his voice as well and i was like oh you know i was like running on some rooftops and then like a guy jumps into the thames and he was like really that’s absolutely wonderful good for you now we aren’t all actors like john but specifically with funny stories the good news is that your impressions don’t even have to be good just clearly move and speak as someone different than yourself and you will get a bigger laugh if this seems like it would be hard to remember on the spot then one easy trick is to set a phone reminder before your next social event reminding yourself to play the characters in your jokes it may sound strange but it’ll make your night way more fun and you will notice people start to be drawn to you as you tell your stories one common theme you’ll notice in john’s jokes so far is he’s not worried about making himself look good by making jokes about stalking his wife or crying in front of obama jon shows he’s comfortable using self-deprecating humor to get a laugh watch as he talks about taking his wife to the gun range for the first date we were experiencing it for the first time which was pretty great except i i think yelped the first time i was like most people in conversation are trying to make themselves look good by making a joke at your own expense you immediately separate yourself from that pack now some people worry that self-deprecating jokes will make them look bad by calling attention to their flaws and this can happen if you don’t do it correctly so there’s two good rules to follow one option is to make a self-deprecating joke that is obviously not true take this example of john with ellen name the celebrity who hasn’t returned a text you sent name one who has and the second option is to make a joke that may or may not be true but that you aren’t insecure about like this example of john talking about his wife and how that was your wife the beautiful emily blunt emily reaction means i married up and don’t i know it don’t i know it in most instances where self-deprecating jokes go wrong it’s because someone is trying to make a joke about something that they’re genuinely insecure about they’re hoping that if they bully themselves first it will make other people bully them less instead make fun of yourself for things you don’t care about a good way to know is to ask yourself would i care if someone else made this joke about me jon is a master of the flip side of self-deprecating humor as well he tells jokes that elevate other people watch this clip where ellen is congratulating jon for being honored as one of the sexiest men in america and jon turns it into a joke elevating brad pitt instead to to be really honest i thought brad pitt was the sexiest person every year i mean like he he must get the phone call and he just goes yeah no guys somebody else is here and they’re like great we just had to ask and now we’ll go to somebody else but he has to be most people tell jokes to put other people down and while that may get a laugh it also runs the risk of making people resent you if instead you focus on making jokes that elevate other people you’ll get the laugh and you strengthen the relationship with that person the danger here is that if you do it wrong you can end up looking like a suck-up nothing turns people off faster than if they think you’re trying to get close to them with flattery because of that there are two key elements to make a complimentary joke go well first your joke has to be genuine so before attempting to jokingly elevate someone ask yourself what do i truly admire about this person this will naturally help your delivery second exaggerate the compliment john doesn’t just say brad pitt is handsome he says he’s so handsome that he gets a call from people magazine every single year here’s another example of john describing what it’s like to meet tom brady i met him and i think i realized there’s a computer chip putting you even though uh he had he wasn’t playing yet they put a computer chip in you that when you meet tom brady your computer shuts off so he was like hey how you doing i was like pretty good and that’s all i remember about meeting him that exaggerated absurdity will make sure your compliments get a laugh and even if the person you’re talking to isn’t the person you’re complimenting the positivity and confidence that you show by hyping someone else up will make them instantly like you more there’s also a second much easier technique john uses to jokingly elevate others around him he doubles down on other people’s jokes watch jon build on ellen’s joke here and take note of ellen’s reaction did you write with a pen like a yeah it was like a long feather it took forever he does it again here with conan o’brien and gets a big laugh a lot of times mostly in life if someone pops out of a door and says do you want to meet them you say no and then they just do this and you slowly go to bed doubling down is nice because you’re essentially complimenting the other person by saying hey i like your joke let’s keep it going this is a great way to make people like you and it can be super fun if you start to go back and forth with each other like graham norton and john do here are they american children you’re like dry heaved you’re like are they american have you given birth [Applause] tell so next time you’re in conversation instead of trying to grab the spotlight let other people go first then when someone tells a joke rather than trying to figure out how you can bring attention to yourself ask how can i double down on their joke to make it even funnier if this is a skill you want to improve and you aren’t quite sure how a great first step is to watch improv shows like whose line is it anyway improv is based all around the idea of building on other people’s jokes and simply by watching it you will start to absorb their thought patterns now this video has focused a lot on john’s humor but it’s important to note he doesn’t play the role of a class clown who can’t be serious when the opportunity presents itself jon will be genuine and share his emotion specifically emotions that other men might be embarrassed about like here where he admits to being a crier oh absolutely and i’m a crier i have no uh no hard time saying that and i cry at everything or here where he admits he was scared the first time he approached his wife was she intimidating at all to you uh yes incredibly intimidating i was scared out of my mind to even go up and say hi to her these are feelings most people have but lack the confidence to share because they fear the judgment of others but hiding these feelings is a big mistake when you share emotions with people that they themselves have but try to hide it has two positive effects they’ll admire you for sharing something vulnerable and they’ll feel closer to you because they have those same feelings if you feel like you don’t have the confidence for that i recommend checking out our program charisma

career and he says i don’t even have a bachelor diploma yet they want me to fill this position and when asked why this was the answer you have great social skills which is rare for an engineer you can think quick on your feet and you’re open and self-assured in your demeanor thank you so much for all that you taught me you have truly changed my life because without cu i wouldn’t have qualified for that position in a million lifetimes now this next one comes from another person who started a new job saying i wanted to let you know that i nailed those first few days at work everything that i needed was right there at the right moment the confidence the energy the smile the positive mindset and with all your tips from last tuesday in mind it just could not go wrong and he finishes by saying i just wanted to emphasize that what i did the previous days would not even have come to mind if i had not discovered that charisma is a skill that can be learned thanks to your youtube channel and university program and this last one is a comment in the course from someone who used it mainly to improve their social and dating life and he says life-changing in six weeks i went from being socially awkward with few friends to the life of every event i attend i also went from having serious girl problems to dating the girl of my dreams charisma university transformed me from a lonely introvert hoping to better connected people to an energy-filled extrovert who makes new friends everywhere i go and there are more success stories like those in the comments if you decide to join the

  1. He made me happiest when Roy would kiss or grab up on his at the time, girlfriend. Jim always had that pathetic sad look on his face. It warmed my heart.

  2. I love this channel. I'm a pretty confident person but asking a girl out can be intimidating no matter who you are. I put into practice some things over learned hear recently and not only do my coworkers love me, but I recently asked out a girl I've had a crush on for the past few months. She said yes and we're going out this week! Keep up the awesome videos guys!

  3. I'm 80% sure this channel is the same click- bait-titled video posted over and over again with slightly different editing to trick people that you're teaching multiple different lessons
