10 Funniest Knock Knock Jokes

10 Funniest Knock Knock Jokes

While knock knock jokes are well known in many countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Canada and South Africa, in some nations such as Brazil, they are not popular at all. Knock knock jokes, it seems, have been around since the dawn of time. A type of pun, the knock knock joke is essentially what is called a "call and answer" exercise. There is a person who delivers the pun, and a pun recipient. The knock knock joke has even become a developmental tool.  Psychologists study how younger children use and tell knock knock jokes, as it allows them to see how their language skills are developing.

 

The format of a knock knock joke is always, "knock, knock" followed by the inquiry, "who's there?" The person delivering the pun gives a response, usually a name, that sets up the pun. The recipient, of course asks, "Name who?" Then the punster delivers the punch line, which is usually a pun on the name or word. It doesn't sound as funny when explained in detail, but there are some truly funny knock knock jokes in existence. Knock knock jokes are no longer simply child's play anymore. The following are some of the best knock knock jokes that can currently be found on the Internet. As with any joke, there are "clean" versions and there are "dirty" versions. Here, we've published only the clean ones. If you have any knock knock jokes of your own to add, we'd love to hear them!

1.  

The first joke can be described as the classic knock knock joke, setting up the pun on a name. This knock knock joke is best suited for mature audiences, as many of us wouldn't want our children cursing, even in a joke (then again, is damn even considered a curse word anymore, in this day and age?):

 

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Madame.

Madame who?

Madame foot's caught in the door!

2.  

This knock knock joke uses not only a play on a name, but also a reference to a popular     children's lullaby, making the joke accessible to all ages:

 

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Wendy.

Wendy who?

Wendy wind blows de cradle will rock.

3.

The following knock knock joke turns the name into a speech lisp. It  is funny to many      children (or adults!) who either speak with a lisp or know someone who has a speech impediment of some sort:

 

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Dwayne.

Dwayne who?

Dwayne the bathtub, I'm drowning.

4.

This knock knock joke is a classic, and also a favorite of both children and adults. Children like it because it  makes fun of someone for crying, and adults just like it because it's cheesy:

 

Knock, knock!

Who's there?
Boo.
Boo who?
Don't cry; it's only a knock-knock joke. 

5.

Here's a knock knock joke that would probably be favored by adults, as it turns the joke around and it becomes a prank on the recipient:

 

I know a great knock-knock joke.
Ok, tell me.
All right. You start.
Ok, knock, knock!
Who's there?

6.

This knock knock joke comes from comedic poet and writer Shel Silverstein. It was featured in his 1981 book, A Light in the Attic. The joke itself is entitled, "The Meehoo with an Exactlywatt," and is a cross between a knock-knock joke and the famous comedy routine, "Who's on First?" While it may be a bit tedious to follow, they payoff is pretty funny:

 

Knock, knock!

Who's there?

Me!
Me who?
That's right!
What's right?
Meehoo!
That's what I want to know!
What's what you want to know?
Me who?
Yes, exactly!

Exactly what?
Yes, I have an Exactlywatt on a chain!
Exactly what on a chain?
Yes!
Yes what?
No, Exactlywatt!
That's what I want to know!
I told you – Exactlywatt!
Exactly what?
Yes!
Yes what?
Yes, it's with me!
What's with you?
Exactlywatt – that's what's with me.
Me who?
Yes!
Go away!
Knock, knock…

7.

This knock knock joke is one that is also preferred by adults, because the recipient doesn't even know he or she is being set up by the punster to be the butt of a knock knock joke. What seems to start as a heartfelt conversation between two intimate friends turns into nothing more than a knock knock joke:

 

Will you remember me in an hour?
Yes.
Will you remember me in a day?
Yes.

Will you remember me in a week?

Yes.

Will you remember me in a month?

Yes.

Will you remember me in a year?
Yes.
I think you won't.
Yes, I will.
Knock, knock!
Who's there?
See? You've forgotten me already!

8.

Another knock knock joke that would most likely be understood and appreciated by an adult audienceKnock, knock!

 

Who's there?

Eskimo Christian Italian.

Eskimo Christian Italian who?
Eskimo Christian Italian no lies.

(In case that one went a bit over your head, it's "Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies.", this knock knock joke is funny because it sets up not one but three puns)

9.

Although I personally can't stand the following knock knock joke, it seems to be quite a popular one, especially among children. Anyone who has had to withstand hearing this joke over and over from a preschooler who's just learning to tell knock knock jokes knows why it can become difficult to tolerate after a short while:

 

Knock, knock!

Who's there?

Banana.

Banana who?

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say "banana" again?

10.  

Finally, this last one is pretty cute, even if it is really cheesy. The punster sets up the joke and makes fun of the recipient at the same time:

 

Knock knock!

Who's there?

Little old lady?

Little old lady who?

Wow! I didn't know you could yodel!
