I want to know how I can be funnier how to make girls laugh and to flirt better. Any advice on how I can accomplish this? If there are any funny guys here, were you naturally funny or did you learn how to be funny?

I have two tips that really helped me out.
1) Watch lots of comedy. If you want to be funny you have to enjoy laughing. I really enjoy good stand-up myself more than movies. At first I started just stealing the jokes. If it's obscure stuff you can get away with it otherwise, yes, it looks lame but if you use it and time it right it can work. Just don't overdo it. If it's not working then stop. Eventually I became able to remember jokes and then retrofit them to suit different situations.
If you haven't seen it I recommend Robin William's Live on Broadway. His newest show is great too but I think this is his finest work ever. He's like a comedy machine gun - a barrage of jokes. By the time your brain tells you to laugh at one he's three jokes ahead.
I'm also a big fan of Jimmy Carr. He's a British comedian and he's not well known in North America. His Jokes are mostly the one-liner type. He uses a lot of great word-play and irony and despite being crude he's quite sophisticated. I have to add a word of warning if you use that style though. Though there's lots of good jokes, many are extremely offensive or even misogynistic. It's shock humour of course and he gets away with it because he knows how to deliver it PROPERLY. If you're don't understand deadpan well, don't even try.
2) Make friends with funny people. It just helps you see how it works in social situations.1
