T5W – Favorite Jokesters

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam@Thoughts on Tomes over on Goodreads.

This week’s topic, in honour of April Fools, let’s talk about my favourite jokesters, pranksters, and funny characters.


“Our hopes rest with you, Mister Brekker. If you fail, all the world will suffer for it.”
“Oh, it’s worse than that, Van Eck. If I fail, I don’t get paid.” 

Kaz is a clever trickster that learned how to scheme in order to survive. He is one of my favourite characters and I would love him to meet for a coffee with Cassel to plot the biggest con ever.. 🙂


“The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true.” 

Cassel is another smart character that is trying to stay step ahead from ‘mafia’ as well as cops and is doing everything ‘necessary’ to survive. He is funny and I hope him and Kaz will plot something together one day. 🙂


“Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what’s on the other side?” 

Oh, Tyrion. Smart, funny and very, very cunning. 🙂 He is one of my favourite GoT characters and his quotes reliably crack me up. 🙂


“You’re a girl?”
“Surprising, I know. Everyone thinks I’m older.” 

OK, I’ll admit it. I am not her biggest fan but she is funny. 🙂 She is sassy, has a very foul mouth and some of her snarky answers made me laugh out loud.


“The easiest way to steal something, is for it to be given willingly.”

Dear Jest and his quest to steal a certain heart. I guess he was meant to be funny be default given he was the king’s joker. 🙂 Still, he was an interesting character and sometimes I wish his story could have been heard as well.

There you have it, some pranksters, some funny characters. There are many more and I am pretty certain I may have forgotten a lot of them.

Now over to you my friends. 🙂

Who are you favourite jokers?

Fancy sharing them with me?

  1. I love that you picked Kaz as a jokester- Jesper is probably one of the most obviously funny character from six of crows. But you are right, Kaz does have a delightfully dark and sarcastic humor. I love Jest too, I would also include Hatta as a jokester.
