240+ Tagalog Jokes That Will Make You LOL In Filipino

Okay, real talk – ever notice how Filipinos always seem to be in a good mood? Makes sense now that the Philippines just nabbed the #2 spot for the happiest country in Southeast Asia. I mean, these folks could probably crack jokes during a typhoon. How did I know? Well, it's because I'm a Filipino through and through!

And since you're in this post, I have a feeling you wanted to learn a few Tagalog jokes either because you're a Pinoy looking to up your pun game or an expat trying to fit in. That's great then because here, I'll be sharing not 50, not 100, but 200+ Tagalog jokes to truly become that go-to funny person in your crew!

Ready? Let's begin!

How Do You Say Joke In Tagalog?

The Tagalog word for joke is "biro" (bee-roh). Today, Filipinos also swap it up with the English word "joke" or with the Tagalized version "dyok." Let's see these words in action below:

  1. "Biro lang 'yan!" (That's just a joke!)
  2. "Joke lang, 'wag kang mag-alala." (Just kidding, don't worry.)
  3. "Dyok time! May narinig akong bagong punchline." (Joke time! I heard a new punchline.)

Saturday. Summer. Beautiful sunny day, so my friends and I decided to make a picnic and watch the sundown. Pretty fun and relaxed day.

The Role Of Media In Tagalog Jokes

Let's face it, Pinoys are media junkies. From noontime shows to primetime teleseryes, from YouTube vlogs to TikTok trends, we're always tuned in. And guess what? This media obsession plays a huge role in shaping our jokes and humor.

Remember when everyone was quoting Vice Ganda's "Edi wow!" or Kris Aquino's "I'm so inggit!"? That's the power of media in action. TV shows, movies, and now social media platforms are like joke factories, churning out new punchlines that can go trending in a snap.

These days, you're just as likely to hear a Tagalog joke inspired by a viral TikTok as you are to hear a classic "Bubble Gang" reference. Our Filipino jokes evolve with our viewing habits, creating a shared language of humor that's uniquely Pinoy.

But here's a cool thing about consuming media in any language – it's actually a great way to learn! Yup, all those hours binge-watching your fave shows aren't wasted time. They're secret language lessons!
