Our society is becoming so serious and un-funny.  What happened? Even the Super Bowl was a sad place. Not just for Bronco fans, but the commercials were lame. We as a society must get back to basics and get our humor back. Who’s with me?  Let’s develop our funny bone and creative muscles or at least die laughing…that was bad….

Today we will learn how to set up a basic joke.

3 elements:

  • Set-up-you must establish a cliche and somewhat real or serious situation
  • Set-up the second set-up is to create more believability
  •  Twist – then bammmm you hit your listener with an unexpected twist. The punchline.

Example: I need to go to the grocery store and buy milk, eggs and a machine gun.

I need to go to the grocery store and buy milk, eggs and new heart cuz you crushed mine.

Sweetening the joke: It is nice to sweeten the joke.

I went to the sports store and picked up a new soccer ball, cleats and gay mexican man to clean my balls.

This is our first lesson. I must re-read this to learn as well. Sean
