REMEMBER : PREMISE: and then the ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, the unspoken emotion. This is the PUNCHLINE. Once you have the punchline, add the 3 AMPLIFIERS and one of the three examples can be used to FORESHADOW the next joke:
EXAMPLE:JOKE 1) A lot of comedians are insecure, suffer from depression and use humor to fill a hole. Speaking of holes nice to be back in this club! JOKE 2) A comedians’ working in a club has a heart attack and dies. Suddenly he’s at the pearly gates. On the other side are a bunch of comedians, Bob Hope, Richard Pryor, Joan Rivers, Don Rickles. Saint Peter tells the new comic before he can go into heaven he had to tell his joke that was his greatest risk. The new comic starts sharing his most courageous joke. Suddenly Saint Peter says, “wrap it up God just gave you the light!” On the other side of the gate Don Rickles says, “I’m dead a week and Saint Peter’s already stole my act!”

REMEMBER: HOMEWORK: WRITE JOKES from 3 different perspectives  FOR) 1) the guy who brought the wrong part to the Canadian Tire, 2)his wife and 3) the automotive attendant, also have 2 misdirection’s.

REMEMBER: Have your 7 to 10 minute set (TAGGED AND BAGGED!!!!) for Monday.
