The 131 Funniest Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids

Knock knock? Who's there? The best joke format for kids ever.

Knock-knock jokes are famous for their repetitive and universally recognized format. They’ve earned somewhat of a bad rap, as the least funny knock-knock jokes tend to be the most famous. But the best knock-knock jokes for kids and adults are not only tolerable but genuinely funny and very silly. They may come in corny packaging, but they bring laughter anyway (and maybe some grumbling.) Knock-knock jokes may rank one step below baby drum sets and just above the baby shark song in terms of their ability to annoy parents. But that’s kind of the point. Knock-knock jokes welcome corniness and their subsequent eye rolls with welcoming arms.

ORDER YOUR COPY OF FATHERHOOD! The most important and most fun parenting book you’ll ever read is OUT NOW. In 17 joyous, expert-lead chapters, Fatherly rough-houses with a UFC fighter’s kids, unearths cultural practices where men feign pregnancy, and breaks down the six essential conversations all parents should have (and have and have again). In between, there are 20+ experts, illustrated guides, and loads of damn good advice.

So is there a way to make knock-knock jokes for kids funny, or even just bearable, for adults? Believe it or not, killer knock-knock jokes do exist. “I believe what makes knock-knock jokes fun is the fact that they are interactive,” says Rob Elliot, dad joke extraordinaire and author of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. “You have to respond to get to the punch line. This makes them fun for kids and their families ⏤ even if parents are not particularly fans of knock-knock jokes.”

Elliot suggests seeking surprising jokes to find the funniest (and corniest) knock-knock jokes for kids. Otherwise, look for jokes that “poke fun at knock-knock jokes or about hearing another knock-knock joke … because we all know after too many, they drive us all a bit crazy.”

Here are 131 killer knock-knock jokes for kids and adults, including a few good ones from Elliot’s book, plus several corny new ones.
