You can be funny and not be a comedian. It takes a lot more than having a sense of humor to share funny thoughts with strangers. This isn't to say that a comedian has no need for a sense of humor, but they need some other personality traits as well.

In astrology, the zodiac signs who make the best comedians are those who are naturally funny and don’t have to force people to laugh. There’s nothing quite as awkward and uncomfortable as someone who is desperate to be funny. The harder they work for that laugh, the more difficult they’ve made it for themselves to get it.


Comedians need to be smart and up to date on what’s going on in the world. Even if they don’t want to be a political comedian, it’s helpful for them to be aware . If someone isn’t smart enough to see the humor in a situation, they’re at a disadvantage.

In addition, comedians need to be able to think on their feet. If they get in the zone where every one of their jokes is hitting and then some drunk guy starts heckling them, they need to know how to diffuse the tension and remain in control of the narrative.


1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras love making people laugh and usually have a natural gift at comedy. They often use humor as a defense and will make a joke to avoid confrontation.

Libras have great timing, know when to pause to get a bigger laugh, know how to use levels so people don't get bored, know when to tell a topical joke so it lands, and when to wait until people will be more accepting of it. They are great at improv and saying funny things off the cuff.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

The Sagittarian individual isn't the type to tell a traditional joke with the set-up and punchline; instead, they'll tell funny stories about their life. They are naturally funny and most of the time their most hilarious moments are when they're not even trying.


Sagittarians are observant and smart so they can see humor where others may miss it. They're confident which makes anyone listening to them feel comfortable and relaxed, and can just enjoy what Sagittarius is saying without worrying.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces have their own wacky way of looking at the world and have an incredible imagination, so it's their perspective that makes them so funny and engaging. Since Pisces tend to be empathetic, much of their humor comes from a deep understanding of the human experience but with a twist.

They think outside of the box, and that's what makes their humor unique and unconventional. A Pisces comedian might not appeal to everyone, but those who get them are devoted.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are analytical and have a dry sense of humor that makes them hilarious. You don't expect Virgo to be that funny, and then they say something and you're on the floor laughing. They know how to work a joke and will keep saying it until they get the reaction they want.

Virgos can do it all: stand-up, sketch, improv, and storytelling. Their material is always up to date and never stale. This zodiac sign is very intelligent, but they never talk down to an audience; instead, they bring them up to their level.

5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are one of the funniest signs around. Since they feel so comfortable in the spotlight, they tend to have amazing stage presence and don't care how dorky they may look, so they have no problem acting like a clown for a laugh.

Leos are people-persons, and they always know their audience and how to adapt their material so it will generate the biggest punch. They are confident enough to have a thick skin, so if they're not succeeding, they'll keep at it until they do. Leo will make you laugh, even if it's the last thing they do.
