The joke that I loved but no one else did?
That sounds like my entire act…
Actually, in my case, the opposite to be true. I find that the jokes I hate are the ones the audience love.
For years my opening routine involved a faulty mic and a plug socket that blows up on stage. I’d have to set it up before the audience arrived -which was a pain. Sometimes the pyro would cause the smoke alarms to go off resulting in me finishing the show in the car park after the audience were evacuated.
As soon as I gave up the bit everyone insisted I bring it back!
The joke that worked but you are not proud it had.
“My wife of 11 years…and that’s quite old for a filipino…”
“Good evening my name is Jim. Old friends still call me Ginge….. I’ll show you afterwards”
The comedians that made you want to be a comedian.
Víctor Borge for the musical comedy.
Tommy Cooper for his funny bones
Steven Wright for his Sheer comedic intellect.
