None of them, as it should be humorously, not hunorously.
Written correctly it´s the second one.
Cheers

Aisha is right, of course! However, what does it mean? He always makes people laugh when he does things? He always does things in a funny/humorous way? Or he always does things willingly, or in good spirit, or with good humour? The general point is right, you need the adverbial form here, as it is describing how you do things, but it doesn’t quite work here, in my opinion.

I agree with Lynne. The choice of humorously sounds odd.

Could he mean cheerfully? I guess this should be the adverb...
@ Lynne: I miss your worksheets!!
