I tried to write a one liner because I’ve a habit of going off on tangents, but it ended up being two lines and then would follow an explanation of why it was funny to the audience. The whole room would roll it’s eyes and it would stink out a room.
here’s the joke.
You know the way comedians seem to have a problem with airplane food?
They always say “What is the deal with airplane food?” It’s jet fuel.
Planes eat jet fuel. ok fair enough it wasn’t good.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?
Before my first gig I was advised not to do any dark material. So the first joke I ever wrote was about Gary Glitter committing suicide by putting a pencil up his nose and slamming his face off my dining room table. Not the best image to start seven minutes of anecdotes about my granny’s new hot tub.
The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?
Bernard O’Shea is a stand up comedian who worked in the radio station I worked in before I did stand up comedy. He suggested that I give it a go. I didn’t give it much thought. I did the gig and came off stage high on adrenaline. Now i can’t stop doing it.
Mat Ewins adventure man seven, I laughed until I was worried I’d hurt myself.
