In my earlier post , Oh what will he do, (25/7/2008) I talked about writing a play for International Older Peoples day 1st Oct. Well rehearsals are going very well and the characters are settling into their parts and learning their lines. As part of one section to lighten the mood one character tells a joke. I had a joke had in mind and for the first few rehearsals it was very funny but now it falls rather flat. For our filming performance or performances I have warned the cast that I want to change the joke so that only the story teller knows it. It has to be funny so that it gets a belly laugh or at least a good grown from the rest of the cast in that scene. My email network is also being asked to forward suitable material. It can be smutty, political, topical but not down right rude I although a bit of innuendo would do no harm. I’ll publish the chosen jokes. To get you started this is what we are currently using:-
“Did you hear the joke about Dolly Parton & the Queen dying on the same day and waiting to get into heaven? Trouble was there was only one place left that day.
St Peter says to Dolly give me a good reason why you should come in. Dolly shows him her boobs and says a perfect pair. St. Peter then asks her Majesty the same question. The queen takes a tissue from her hand bag wipes her nose goes over to the heavenly loo and flushes it down. “Come in” says St. Peter and “sorry Dolly”. Dolly protests strongly. Well St. Peter explains a Royal Flush beats a Pair in any game no matter how big they are”
