Is it funny? Are you genuinely laughing along, or pretending to laugh along? Not saying it's your fault, I'm just trying to understand the situation. ..

If it's mostly hurtful, you have to tell him. You should be with this guy because you enjoy being around him. No need to stick around someone who's making you feel bad all the time. There will be someone else out there who will respect you and appreciate you rather than putting you down...

Tell him it bothers you and he'll eventually do it more...
..
Instead, have compassion for him. Somehow he thinks that hurting / joking about you is the best thing to do. He's missguided, clearly, maybe has low self esteem and needs to boost it by verbally subjurgating you? so he needs you as his partner, you have to help him move past it, growing past this phase. Attacking (=criticizeing) him will make you his enemy, resulting in more power fights...
..
The easiest way to deal with an improper joke would probably be to pause for a second, smile compassionately, and move on without mentioning it. Try it for a day. If it doesn't work, I'll buy you a beer. ;-)..
