The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been entertaining the masses since the early 2000s – even longer for the original readers of the books.
Even now that the original fans of the series are adults, there’s still something so magical about dropping back into that world and falling in love with it all over again.
And now, we – the original fans – are able to introduce our children to the amazing story of The Boy Who Lived and his brave, intelligent and loyal friends.
As the story progresses, though, the books and films do tend to get darker, and we may have to ease our children into those last few books and films a little bit at a time.
But as Dumbledore tells us in The Prisoner of Azkaban, “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
The Harry Potter-themed jokes we’ve compiled in this list can be the light for you and your little ones the next time things get a little too heavy, not only in the Wizarding World but also in life.
So come with us, through the Gryffin-door to our hilarious magical world of Harry Potter jokes that we’ve specially curated for you to get you and your kids giggling.
Without further ado, check out these 70+ Harry Potter jokes to lighten the mood the next time things become too Sirius.

Harry Potter Story Jokes
A blind wizard walks into a bar, finds his way to a stool, and sits down. He says rather loudly to the barkeep, “hey, how would you like to hear a Hufflepuff joke?”
The bar goes silent and the barkeep replies, “Sir, I will not lie to you, you are speaking to a Hufflepuff, the man behind you is an Auror from Hufflepuff, the woman to your right is a Hufflepuff dueling champion and we all have our wands drawn. Do you really want to continue?”
The blind wizard goes silent for a moment before curtly replying, “No I don’t. Not if I’m going to have to explain it 3 times.”
Hopefully these jokes and one-liners have helped bring a little good cheer into your life. We like to imagine you went chuckling through them with a butterbeer in one hand and a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans in the other.
