Whether you want to put on a comedy routine or simply be funnier around your friends, speaking with a funny voice can help make that happen. There are many types of funny voices that you could learn, so it is important to focus on the things that you do best. You might need to try a variety of styles before finding one that fits you well, then practice it until you've perfected the voice.
Things You'll Need
- Voice-changing software
- CDs of different accents
- Voice recorder
Speak with a different pitch than you normally do. Talk faster or slower than normal. If you say any words in a strange or funny way, try accentuating them even more than usual. Use different combinations of these techniques to change your voice into something fun and funny.
Listen to CDs that have various accents on them. Practice the accents in the privacy of your home or car. Choose the one that you like the best and work to perfect it as much as possible. Most accents can be funny if they are done well enough. Expand the accent by making it over the top, which will make it more funny.
Experiment with these various elements and do not forget to have fun while doing it. Coming up with a funny voice should be a fun project that you do not take too seriously.
Record yourself with a voice recorder so that you can listen to your voices. When you find a voice combination that you think sounds funny, share it with friends and family to see what they think. If they genuinely laugh, you might have found a funny voice to add to your repertoire.
Place voice-changing software on your computer and speak into the built-in microphone. Use the controls in the software to make your voice funnier than normal. This change can be used for phone calls or voice messages, but you are not actually learning a technique for changing your voice.
