Hey all, I have a routine which involves me balancing a basketball hoop on my chin, and I throw the ball into the hoop, and get audience members to do the same.

I joke around about being employed for the Chicago bulls, as a basketball hoop (always gets a good laugh from older audiences) and a few other jokes.

"I am actually a pretty good basketball player, I am a good dribbler (reach into pocket and take out baby bib)

Can anyone think of any other jokes and/or gags I could use/adapt on?

Cheers all!

Sorry... what does that have to do with magic?
Wouldn't it be better in the "juggling" department?

Sorry thoughtsexplorer what does your post have to do with funny?

I go through hoops to make this routine good.

My friend said that he scored a basket and I wondered how he got the bits up his nose?

I trained 20 years to be a great dribbler and then found my kid learnt in his first week.

I knew a man who kept saying "pliers, pincers, scissors". He was speaking in tongs.

Nigel and James,
I don't wanted to insult anyone. Neither being funny.
If you look at the numbers of posts and views, I thought that it could be a better idea to place it into the "juggling" department. I am only thinking as a pure magician.

Sorry for any misunderstanding or inconveniences, no wukkas, mates!

I would also consider looking there as well, as a lot of jugglers RELY on comedy. Anyway, I would try to draw a comparison of when you were younger and kids wanted to play basketball, but that was all you wanted to do, so for the next few years they just threw the ball at the pole. Later on they tied a string to them and called it tether ball, so I laughed and told them to get a life, (look at the audience like they just saw you as someone that needs to get a life.)
write some jokes for these illustrations.

Production of the ball from briefcase, or scarves(Juggling) could work.

I can juggle balls, but make reference to my lack of ability to dribble..other than when I drink to fast or shoot.

Mini basketballs can be used for multiplying balls, references and puns to

Foul(jokes) and chickens...

Referees or was that an inmate...

(I used to work at Kansas' Oldest bed and breakfast...(actually did as a therapist)
aka Lansing Correctional Facility....

Their version of a fast break(out) was scarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry.

Humor is a great combination with both Juggling and Magic.

This nearly normal juggler uses the hoops as Worm Holes to produce and vanish items....

But I digressssssssssssssssssssssss

Remember the ultimate answer to magic, humor and other matters
