This Post Is All About The Sims 4 Comedy Skill
What is the Comedy Skill?
The Comedy Skill is a skill in The Sims 4 that allows your Sim to perform stand-up comedy, write jokes, and tell funnier stories. The better your Sim is at the Comedy Skill, the more successful their performances will be.
If you want your sim to take their comedy Skill further you can give the Joke Star Aspiration, or have them join the Entertainer Career.
Best Traits for a sim who wants to be a comedian.
Outgoing – Sims with the outgoing trait like socializing with other sims more so will make it easier for them when learning the comedy skill.
Goofball – This trait helps Sims to become more playful, which in turn makes it easier for them to learn the comedy skill. If your Sim has this trait, they will also find it easier to make other Sims laugh.
Aspirations to help with the comedy skill
Joke Star Aspiration– This aspiration is the perfect accompaniment for sims who want to be a comedian as it gives your sims a “Gregarious Trait” which will allow them to build friendly relationships faster. (FYI to complete this 2nd and 3rd millstone of this aspiration your sim will need to be in the entertainment career)
Best Mood to help gain the comedy skill?
Having your sim in a particular mood can help them gain skills faster. The ideal mood for your sim to be in before they start practicing the comedy skill is playful.
How to Gain The Comedy Skill
There are a few different ways to gain the Comedy skill in The Sims 4.
The first way is by practicing jokes on other Sims To do this, click on your Sim and select the option to “Practice Joke.” or select other comedy interaction and just keep repeating. (This will however be the slowest method)
Your Sim can also watch comedy TV shows, or read comedy books to gain the skill. To do this, click on the TV and select the “Watch Comedy” option, or purchase a book about comedy from your bookcase or via a computer
Sims can also go to a bar or a club where a mic is and perform comedy.(When your sim gets good they will be able to perform a routine via a mic)
Another option if you have a computer is using the write joke option.
How to Cheat the Sims 4 Comedy Skill
If all of the above sounds like too much you can just cheat your way to the top of the comedy skill. To do this:
Press “CTRL + Shift + C” or a computer or “All 4 Triggers” on a console to open the cheat console.
Type in “testingcheats true” and press enter.
Type in “stats.set_skill_level major_comedy 10” then press enter.
This will give your Sim the highest possible level of Comedy skill.
If you want to set your sims comedy skill to a specific level then you can just change the 10 to any number between 1-10.

Once you publish these books your sims can earn royalties off them, which can be a great source of extra income or if you write a publish enough your sims could earn a decent living. (If you write and publish around 5 books your sims could earn around $1000 a day)
Comedy skill writing tip
Another thing that not many people know, but if your sim finishes the “Renaissance Sim Aspiration” and gains the professional trait. They can then start writing manuals for the comedy skill, so they’ll be able to make even more money.
When your sim gets to level 3 in the comedy skill they can start composing routines on the computer. Your sim can then perform routines at bars and earn money for it.
Once your sim gets better in the comedy skill they’ll be able to make longer routines and when they get to level 5 comedy they’ll be able to refine their routines to make them even better.
Here is the standard pay your sims will get for a routine:
But then when your sim gets to level 5 and can refine their work, they’ll be able to get paid more based on the quality of a routine.
If your sim does an excellent routine, depending on the length they can get a payout of $112- $330
So having your sim do a few of these a day or a week, could pay them quite well.
FYI- One thing you do have to do is make sure your Sim performs a routine where other sims are, as if no one is watching, there is a chance that you might not get paid anything.
