This is a good discussion. One of my best sources for funny lines is the audience. It's not unusual for someone in the audience to say something that gets a big laugh. I can usually use the same line next time I do the routine, often by simply saying, "last time I did this, I guy shouted out...." I always listen to the audience for clever laugh lines.

Jim,

Great point - often a great line comes up during a show (or right after). Another great reason to record your shows... it'll help you remember these gems.
