I mean, how hard can it be?
I already have two jokes written, and the general theme of the show would be 'Children Say The Funniest Things'.
So for example:
I mentioned a few weeks back how my 5 year old niece had threatened me with a plastic knife when I laughed at her sponge dolphin getting cut in half.
And the joke would be something like:
'Of course, I did what any responsible uncle would do, and chastised her for threatening me with a knife. If she was any kind of man, she'd have offered to fight me without one'.
Because it works on quite a few different levels, doesn't it?
Another example might be something like:
'I'm actually quite content at the moment, because my first child arrived last week. *Audience clap and holler*. And he's just the sweetest thing. Button nose, pudgy little hands, and only 5 pounds - which I thought was excellent value for money'.
And that develops into a long bit about buying a baby, which I will write further down the line.
Start off at one of those open mic nights - they're always on in Middlesbrough - and see where I can go from there. And at my current rate of writing, which is about 1 joke every 6 weeks, I might have enough for a 10 minute slot by 2018.
