Have you ever been to a party where you don’t know many of the people there, and you feel too shy or awkward to spark up a conversation (or maybe you don’t know how), so you resort to standing in a corner with your drink hoping someone will make the first move so you don’t have to? Everyone’s been there. Luckily, there’s one tried and true way to escape such a scenario: getting someone to laugh! And there’s plenty of funny questions to ask for you to choose from and add to your toolbox.
Laughter is the best way to break the ice and get rid of awkward silences. And who doesn’t love a good laugh? Full belly, snorts, tears streaming down the face, maybe even a little pee (or just a chuckle will suffice) laughs. And while everyone has a different sense of humor, even if you don’t end up getting a laugh from your target audience, these questions will at least make for some interesting conversations that could last all night. Like, have you ever thought about what your elevator pitch would be if you were visited by aliens and you wanted to convince them to take you on a trip to visit their planet? Most likely you haven’t, but now you’re probably thinking about it (see?).
Bustle rounded up some funny questions to ask next time you’re stumped on how to start a conversation with someone at a party, or just want to spice up your small talk with a new acquaintance at the next social gathering you attend. Without further ado, here are 65 creative, embarrassing, awkward, and deep funny questions to ask to get your new friends talking.
