Jon Snow's sense of humor often sucks

… from farther east, perhaps … one hears queer talk of dragons.”
“Would that we had one here. A dragon might warm things up a bit.”
“My lord jests. You will forgive me if I do not laugh. We Braavosi are descended from those who fled Valyria and the wroth of its dragonlords. We do not jape of dragons.”
You had best run back to your room, little sister. Septa Mordane will surely be lurking. The longer you hide, the sterner the penance. You’ll be sewing all through winter. When the spring thaw comes, they will find your body with a needle still locked tight between your frozen fingers.”
Arya didn’t think it was funny.
And there are few others that he is not called upon that I find lame. I think this is deliberate portrait of character from GMMR's part as he is able to write people as Tyrion, Jaime and the Hound. (Yes, Sandor has sense of humor and I love it) I wonder if Rhaegar's sense of humor was any better. Maybe there was a good reason why he portrayed himself as a melancholic tragic hero.

That's not humour dude. With the Braavosi, he was engaging conversation with a stranger and with Arya, a "private joke". Find something else

Jon himself isn't particularly funny or witty, but not everybody is. He's not funny but often shares a bit of lighthearted conversation or teasing (which the OPs two examples count as, rather than attempts to be laugh out loud hilarious). Mostly you see it when he is hanging out with girls; Arya in GoT or in the latest book Alys Karstark (at her wedding) and Val (when he's about to take her into an audience with Selyse).

His humor is very dry I think. He's usually surrounded by funny people like Dolorous, Tormund, Val, etc.
I don't think he's not funny because he has the tendency to be serious. Stannis is too but he's hilarious unlike Jon but with him it's not intentional.

A couple of "that's what she said" jokes would have been nice, though...

I don't wish him ill or anything, but next to the ironborn, he's got to be the least enjoyable person to actually read about. He's ... just ... effing ... boring.

I don't think that Stannis could teach him that art. He doesn't even realize how gifted he is.

No one that talented could be so in ignorance.

Nobody is less funny than Brienne. NOBODY.
