- Reddit is a social media news platform with various “subreddits” dedicated to different topics, including jokes.
- Some popular subreddits for finding jokes on Reddit include r/AskReddit, r/CasualConversation, and r/Jokes.
- Some of the best jokes on Reddit include puns, one-liners, and funny stories.
Sometimes we need to laugh. It’s easy to feel the drag of a day, especially when it feels like anything can go wrong. It could be first thing in the morning or a simple distraction on a break from work, but it helps to chuckle. A good laugh can brighten our spirits and make us feel that things aren’t so bad.
While there are many places online to find funny content, there’s one place that has it all. Indeed, one of our favorite places to find the funniest jokes is on Reddit.
What is Reddit?
Reddit is a social media news platform. People who use this site are called Redditors. Reddit breaks down topics of conversation into subreddits, which are basically forums for that specific topic. For example, you can find everything from stock suggestions to the pros and cons of Dyson cordless vacuums. These forums are a great way to ask questions and get honest, unbiased (for the most part) answers. If other users think a post or comment adds value or is worth sharing, they can either upvote it or award the original poster (OP).
Not only can you find answers to questions, but you can also find fun posts, such as jokes. For example, Reddit loves dad jokes, but there’s more than just dad jokes on Reddit! You can find a joke for almost any situation, from one-liners to jokes that never fail. If you see jokes with multiple awards or upvotes, you can be sure these are the best jokes you can find on Reddit.
How to Find Jokes on Reddit
While some Reddit jokes are good, clean fun, some are for adults’ eyes only. While you’re there, you’ll come across several jokes that you should only read when on your personal device. This means no using a work computer. Don’t worry, though, as most Redditors are helpful and mark these jokes as unsafe for work or NSFW.

r/AskReddit is a general forum where you can ask almost any question, but this is also a great place to find the best jokes. For example, in this thread, you can find the best two-line jokes.

Everyone Knows Dave
Reddit user FlukeStarbucker1972 shared the funniest joke they’ve ever heard. It’s long but hilarious. It’s also been shared over a thousand times.
Dave was bragging to his boss one day, “You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them.”
Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, “OK, Dave, how about Tom Cruise?”
“No problem, boss, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it.” So Dave and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise’s door, and Tom Cruise shouts,
“Dave! What’s happening? Great to see you! Come on in for a beer!”
Although impressed, Dave’s boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise’s house, he tells Dave that he thinks he knows Cruise was just lucky.
“No, no, just name anyone else,” Dave says.
“President Obama,” his boss quickly retorts.
“Yup,” Dave says, “Old buddies, let’s fly out to Washington,” and off they go.
At the White House, Obama spots Dave on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, “Dave, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let’s have a beer first and catch up.”
Well, the boss is very shaken by now but still not totally convinced. After they leave the White House grounds he expresses his doubts to Dave, who again implores him to name anyone else.
“Pope Francis,” his boss replies.
“Sure!” says Dave. “I’ve known the Pope for years.” So off they fly to Rome.
Dave and his boss are assembled with the masses at the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square when Dave says, “This will never work. I can’t catch the Pope’s eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I’ll come out on the balcony with the Pope.” He disappears into the crowd headed towards the Vatican.
Sure enough, half an hour later Dave emerges with the Pope on the balcony, but by the time Dave returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Making his way to his boss’ side, Dave asks him, “What happened?”
His boss looks up and says, “It was the final straw… you and the Pope came out onto the balcony and the man next to me said, ‘Who the f*&k is that on the balcony with Dave?’

To finish off our list of Reddit’s best jokes, we’re sharing this dark humor originally shared by arent_we_sarcastic.
This woman goes into a funeral home to make arrangements for her husband’s funeral. She tells the director that she wants her husband to be buried in a dark blue suit.
He asks, “Wouldn’t it just be easier to bury him in the black suit that he’s wearing?”
But she insists that it must be a blue suit and gives him a blank check to buy one.
When she comes back for the funeral, she sees her husband in the coffin, and he is wearing a beautiful blue suit. She tells the funeral director how much she loves the suit and asks how much it costs.
He says, “Actually, it didn’t cost anything. The funniest thing happened. As soon as you left, another corpse was brought in, this one wearing a blue suit. I noticed that they were about the same size, and asked the other widow if she would mind if her husband were buried in a black suit. She said that was fine with her. So… I switched the heads.”
Finding jokes online can be easy if you search a site like Reddit. You’ll find everything from dad jokes to stories with hilarious punchlines.
Be sure to double-check that the jokes you want to read are safe for your age and work surroundings. Otherwise, happy laughing!
