Al,

Did you expect to get quality jokes that you can use in a professional show from posting on a forum? Professionals who spend countless hours writing jokes and honing their art are not about to give their hard earned lines up for free. It doesn't work like that. There a ton of gag tag threads in this forum if you want easy, crappy jokes that you can insert into your act instead of working to come up with your own.

I would never give someone [for free] the lines that I've spent thousands of hours writing, rehearsing, and road testing, especially a stranger on a forum.

If you want to learn how to write better jokes, or if you need jokes for your act, I suggest you contact Gabe Abelson. He's a member here and one of the top comedy writers in the business (Letterman, Leno, Mahr, etc).

Be nice Brian, not everyone has a mind for jokes, he is just looking for some help.

I don't own a LIE DETECTOR but these seem pretty funny
for a family show.

Ask:

Did you clean your room? Yes.
Did you make your bed? Yes.
Do you have a girlfriend? No.
Do you like school? Yes.
Do you like all your relatives? Yes.

If you get these answers hit the buzzer
each time.

He didn't ask for help writing jokes, he asked for someone to hand him jokes to put in his act. It doesn't work like that. There are hundreds of performers on the Café who could simply hand over jokes, and none of us are. There's a reason for that. If he was looking to learn more about the joke writing process, and put in the considerable time and effort to learn how to write jokes properly, tons of us would be willing to help. But someone comes on looking for handouts, and you're not going to get responses. It's not mean, it's the truth.

Lighten up, Brian. This is the "Now That's Funny" forum. There are lots of members who post lots of jokes in lots of threads. If you don't want to give away your genius, then don't post. Where did you see me ask for "quality jokes that I can use in a professional show" or ask for "lines you've spent thousands of hours writing, rehearsing and road testing"?
