I haven’t kept up with this blog as often as I wanted to. As a comic, the wheels in my head do turn on a regular basis but often times, they only turn is small spurts. Unfortunately for me, they never turn when I want them to! My head is constantly filled with joke ideas and premises, but unless a punch line suddenly comes to mind, those ideas and premises are soon just gone. Here are some of those thoughts. Keep in mind, these are just thoughts, no punchlines have been even remotely explored:
1. Most movies could have ended within the first 5 minutes. (Now I just need to think of some movies that could have easily ended that quickly. Like The Karate Kid. That movie could have ended when Daniel’s mother tells him they’re moving to California, then Daniel announces, “Mom, my girlfriend is pregnant.” Boom! They never move and he never gets picked on and never learns karate.)
2. Press conferences in sports are boring because they use the same old repeated answers. I’m trying to come up with a different situation where press conferences, using those same responses they use in sports, may be funny. This is what I have so far:
Press conferences in sports are boring. They always say things like: “We have to come together as a team.” I thing it would be more interesting if those same answers could be used in a press conference after sex: “You were a little premature today and that cost you. Any thoughts on that?”….”Well, I now realize that as a team, we have to come together.”
That’s all I’ve got for now. If you’re reading this, I would LOVE your feedback and suggestions!
