Can someone please suggest an adjective or a noun to describe someone who always cracks 'lame jokes'? All I could think is 'Lame Joker' :/
I am specifically looking for a word/adjective that has negative connotations.

NOUN: a person who tells "corny" jokes, a rube or bumpkin
"When it comes to telling jokes, he's a real cornball."
Oxford Dictionaries Online
ADJECTIVE: trite, banal, mawkishly sentimental
"His jokes are so corny."
If your “lame joker” were here looking for a word to describe people who don’t like/get/appreciate his/her jokes, I’d perhaps suggest that they are “humorless,” but since you got here first I’ll take you at your word that the jokes are lame and “stale or corny” enough to qualify as genuine “groaners” (Merriam-Webster) and suggest that this person could therefore be called a “Groan-meister.”
North American informal
A pestering, nagging, or irritating person;
1940s: Yiddish, from Russian nudnyĭ 'tedious'.NOUN
A wag is a person who can be counted on to make the obvious joke when opportunity arises. It may not be negative enough though, as it does imply wittiness.
