Laughter is the best medicine.
Well, maybe not right now. Greater worldwide access to COVID-19s Vaccines would be more useful! But putting that aside, seeing the funny side of life is one of the best things you can do to naturally boost your endorphins and immune system.
With laughter being one of life’s intrinsic pleasures and being able to do so at yourself has been scientifically proven to improve well-being. The Voquent team dedicated some time to scour the web for some of the best voice jokes and memes related to acting, voice-over and audio.
Some jokes have been adapted from other well-known jokes and a small few are of our own creation. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did taking the time to put this list together. Share your own voice jokes with us on Twitter and we’ll update this post next week with our favourites!
