Writing Jokes. September 2/14

Writing jokes: I like to occasionally, write jokes that are TOPICAL. What I mean by TOPICAL I mean NEWS OF THE DAY. The one item that got my attention was Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie getting married.  I love relationship material. They’re full of emotion. I begin writing jokes by first asking myself how I FEEL about the PREMISE.  Here’s what I came up with: About time they got married, they have 15 kids.                                                                                                                                   FIRST JOKE “They’re in a reality TV show. 15 and counting and when I say 15, I mean BILLION.”  

Back to joke writing. They called them Brad-Jolina, I like that better then the Pitts and there’s a joke here. I like that they live in France. Talk about commuting! Imagine being his buddy?                                     “You’re in Topeka he calls up and asks if you want to car pool. Sure, where are you?  Chamonix-Mont Blanc!”

When we write jokes and explore a premise, if you’ve been reading my BLOG, the real gold is in THE EMOTIONS  of the premise.  That’s where I’ll take us tomorrow.
