The History of the Knock Knock Joke

Have you ever wondered where knock knock jokes came from? The earliest known knock knock jokes (which were actually called “do you know” jokes) can be traced back to about 1900. 

“Do you know” jokes — e.g., Do you know Conrad?… Conrad who?… Conrad-ulations, this was a joke! — were replaced by knock knock jokes in the 1930s, when the format suddenly got hugely popular.

Businesses held competitions. Entertainers wove them into everything, including music and dance numbers. Radio stations aired them in abundance. There were even knock knock joke clubs all over the country. 

By the end of the 1930s, however, critics were passing over them and people decided en masse that knock knock jokes were no longer all that clever. They still have a loyal audience, though. Kids continue to be the main consumers and that will probably never change.
