* Apollo Justice from the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series often falls victim of this, albeit not for the reasons stated in the introduction blurb. The reason, at least according to Trucy and Ema, is because it's impossible to tell apart wherever Apollo is taking seriously or not. As such, people either take his jokes as [[BrutalHonesty blunt, tactless commentaries]] or takes his commentaries as [[DudeNotFunny rude, ill-timed jokes]].

* ''Joker's Wild'' was a panel game from {{ITV}}, in which six comedians were each given a subject by the chairman (Barry Cryer). They had to tell a joke on this subject, and a member of the opposing team could interrupt if they thought they knew it. When Eric Sykes was on one of the teams, he played this trope for all it was worth (including, at one point, having team captain Alfred Marks go over to him and talk him through a joke).

* Jake from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' can snark with the best of them, but when it comes to telling outright jokes, he inevitably summons the crickets. Even Ax, at one point, gets a big laugh just by repeating a joke that Jake had told earlier. Nobody laughed the first time.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Stumpy. Not only are his jokes incredibly lame, he also laughs very hard while telling them and half the time he's laughing too hard to finish talking.
