    Default Can Joker laugh at himself?

    Has he ever done any self depreciating humor?

    If Return of the Joker is any indication, no. Joker prefers it when someone else is the punchline not him.

    Absolutely yes.

    Joker joked about how he was broke in A Death in the Family.

    The Joker: "Just another victim of Reaganomics."

    I suspect Joker sometimes figures he's the biggest joke of all, and that inspires some of his biggest schemes, but that's just me.

    I think he's fine if he does it to himself, not when he has an upstart Batman making a joke out of him.

    Yeah my take is that he can’t stand it if other people make fun of him or mock him.

    He's not even a big fan of Harley or the henchthugs telling a Joke that ISN"T about him. After all "I make the jokes around here..."

    His style of self-deprecating humor is "Hey I'm nuts but I don't just trust a guy with a bandaged head" or "What's your greatest fear? Not saving the Commissioner in time? Me, in a thong?" so he's self-aware and can make fun of himself if the punchline is done at the expense of others.
