80 Funny Toasts for Every Occasion
Toasts have been a major part of human culture since the dawn of time when cavemen would raise their mugs made from animal skulls and grunt in appreciation of each other. Toasting is a time-honored tradition that has been around for centuries. Whether clinking glasses at a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or with friends on a Saturday night out, toasts are a great gesture of goodwill and appreciation to those who mean the world to you.
Giving a toast allows you to be heartwarming and sincere and express your emotions about a person, but they can also be funny. And let’s be honest, there is nothing better than a funny wedding toast. If you are tasked with making the best man speech at your buddy’s wedding or decide to make an off-the-cuff toast while gathered with friends, you want to make your short spiel stand out, which is why funny toasts are the way to go.
Just saying a simple “Cheers” won’t really get the reception you want, so add a few jokes or funny anecdotes and you’ll be the hit of the celebrations. This is especially true when giving a speech at a wedding or event when you need to hold the audience’s attention for longer than a few seconds. You can sprinkle the toast with self-deprecating humor, silly puns, dad jokes, or hilarious real-life stories that will have everyone roaring with laughter.
Whichever way you decide to lean, a funny toast is a surefire way to keep the audience entertained while showcasing your comedy chops. Just make sure you don’t upstage the person or people the celebration is about and keep the jokes cleanish. There’s nothing worse than the person giving the wedding toast being remembered for all the wrong reasons.
If public speaking isn’t your thing and you’re struggling for an opening line or a decent gag, we’ve got your back. Here is a wide selection of funny toasts for all occasions that will put everyone in a good mood. So raise your glass and toast to the occasion and let the laughs begin!
