The Sims 4 Joke Star Aspiration
Milestones and The Hilarious Reward Trait
by Tom "Metro" Schlueter
A full-time comedian can make upwards of 2k a day. That's no laughing matter.
Overview and Set Up
The traits I gave my comedian were: Goofball, Loves Outdoors, and Outgoing. Since the Joke Star Aspiration is in the
Popularity category my Sim also had the Gregarious bonus trait which will help have more success with various
socials. The Goofball trait is nice and often puts your Sim in a Playful mood which maximizes Comedy skilling. My Sim
always did his routines outdoors in the park, so Loves Outdoors was a natural. Outgoing was a no brainer, and like
Gregarious helps build friendships quickly.
Milestone I - Practical Joker
- Be Funny to 5 Sims (75 Satisfaction).
- Achieve Level 3 Comedy Skill (75 Satisfaction).
The Joke Star Aspiration is a fun one with your Sim leveling up the Comedy skill as well as performing routines for
audiences. You'll need to have your comedian involved in the Entertainment career for at least the 2nd and 3rd
Milestones of the Aspiration.
Getting to level 3 of the Comedy skill should be pretty quick - just have your comedian be in a Playful mood and send
them to the nightclub to practice jokes on the microphone. Before you even attempt to use funny socials with
individual Sims you may consider getting a few levels in Charisma since your chance at success will be higher.

Milestone II - Stand-up Start-up
- Become an Adult (0 Satisfaction)
- Join the Entertainer Career (250 Satisfaction).
- Own a Microphone (150 Satisfaction).
Not much to say about the 2nd Milestone aside from the fact that the "Own a Microphone " component is a little flaky
- my comedian did own a microphone, but it was BEFORE the Milestone component fired, so it did not count. I had to
sell it, and buy another for that to register. Are you kidding me? What a joke!
Stage III - Funny Businessman
- Achieve level 6 Comedy Skill (400 Satisfaction).
- Join the Comedian Branch of the Entertainer Career (500 Satisfaction).
As the name implies, for this Milestone you shift gears and focus on the business aspect of being a comedian. By this
point I am assuming your comedian is interested in making more money, so you want to perform refined routines as they
pay more than standard routines. Medium and Long routines also pay better than short routines. Make sure to write
your routines at the computer when you are Playful or ideally Very Playful and you'll see better Comedy skill gains.
Stage IV - Joke Star
- Perform 3 Comedy Routines (1000 Satisfaction).
- Achieve Level 10 Comedy Skill (1500 Satisfaction).
For the final Milestone it's just a question of capping the Comedy skill, so keep doing routines and make sure your comedian is in a Playful mood while performing. At this point you may have enough Satisfaction earned to purchase a skill boosting reward like Night Owl, Morning Sims, or even better - Savant. Those will make grinding out those last couple skill levels a little quicker.
Hilarious Reward Trait
The bonus trait for completing the Joke Star Aspiration is Hilarious. The jokes told by Hilarious Sims never fail.
That is pretty cool when you think about it - no more red minus signs. Although admittedly, a high-level comedian
with some Charisma to boot will not have jokes fail too often. But, additionally, Hilarious Sims have some extra
jokes in their bag they can pull out and use on a Sim. Hmmmm...so what exactly are these extra jokes? Well, I
immediately saw a new Funny social called Weaponized Joke. Lol. What the heck would that mean? Okay, this was funny -
the joke put a Dazed moodlet on my comedian's girlfriend. Next up was the Horrifying Joke. This seemed to have no
impact - I was hoping to see his girlfriend throw up or something dramatic. But, I am guessing its intent is to toss
the target into a Tense or Sad mood. Finally, the Funniest Joke in the world turned her Dazed mood into a Very
So, the three new jokes a Hilarious Sim can tell impacts another Sim's mood - it's just like the Piper Bonus trait of
a musician where special songs can trigger a certain Emotion. Emotions are such a big part of the Sims 4 and this
reward is very interesting and can have unpredictable and humorous results.
With Joke Star completed it was time to hit my comedian's girlfriend with a special joke to change her mood.
