Education humor is different from general humor. It should not only have the general characteristics of humor, entertain others in a witty and special way, but also be rich in educational significance, so as to "teaching in fun". By observing of English classes in two middle schools of China, the authors discusses the application of education humor art that is a great test of teachers' professional quality and educational wit. The study points out that the art can create a relaxed and pleasant classroom learning atmosphere so that students can actively understand knowledge in laughter and enjoy mastering the true meaning of learning. However, it can be seen that grasping some small incidents in the classroom and making them part of the class and promoting teaching and learning requires teachers' high professional quality and responsibility. Education humour play an important role in class and the use of this art is to show teachers' personal charm.
