One example of a funny adult joke is, "A man noticed that his credit card had been stolen but didn’t report it. The thief was spending less than his wife." Another example is, "Did you hear about the Easter egg hunt for the Alzheimer’s patients? They hid their own eggs!"
Common themes for adult jokes include marriage, politics, work and old age. Jokes for adults may also be geared toward men or women. Additional joke categories for adults are pop culture, money, lawyers and partying. Another joke about marriage is, "What comes with the new Divorced Barbie? All of Ken's stuff."
There are different categories of political jokes, as well. These include jokes about Republicans, Democrats, elections, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Many late-night comedians, such as Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon, make political jokes on their television shows.
One example of a political joke from Stephen Colbert is, "If our Founding Fathers wanted us to care about the rest of the world, they wouldn't have declared their independence from it." "Tom Cruise is here to promote the new 'Mission: Impossible' movie, which I believe is all about Donald Trump's PR team," is an example of a political joke from Jimmy Fallon. Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and Jimmy Kimmel are examples of comedians that often bring out the humorous aspect of politics, as well.
