The purposeof this study are to find (1) the historical andsocial contexts contained in the critical humorous discourse of the response to covid-19, (2) thediversity of power that is opposed by the critical discourse of humor against the response to covid-19, and (3) ideology that is upheld by a critical discourse of humor against the response to covid-19.Basedon dominant discourse of overcoming covid-19 (corona virus disease-19) in Indonesia, which does not close to the emergence of all forms of discourse against it. The form of serious discourse against it is considered very dangerous for the makers and disseminators of it, because the right to freedom of opinion has not been properlygranted. Therefore, the form of humorous discourse is an alternative discourse against thedominant discourse developed by people to tackle Covid-19. As a form of critical discourse,humorous discourse is a social practice that always holds historical and social contexts, resistanceto power, and enforcement of certain ideologies.

Data in the form of critical humorous discourse on the response to covid-19was collected through accessible social media (WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook). Data wereanalyzed using interpretive methods furhter. This research is expected to find concepts and propositions about (1) the historical andsocial context contained in the critical humorous discourse of the response to covid-19; (2) thediversity of power that is opposed by the critical discourse of humor against the response to covid-19; and (3) ideology that is upheld by a critical discourse of humor against the response to covid-19. These concepts and propositions can be used as the basis for improving government policy.
