For Comedic Effect

Did you hear what he said?
The bloody audacity
The cheek, the effrontery
I suppose he said it for comedic effect
Hurt people’s feelings but what the heck
Stir the house into greater hilarity
Modern comedians, can’t raise a laugh
Without risking a slap
I’d slap him. I’d kick him.
I’d poked him out his eyes
And tear off his disguise
Nowt but a boy with a little temerity

    • Thank you, Bill. I actually felt a little aggression while writing that. Memories of a certain *adult* comedian we used to have on at the theatre where I worked. I had a strong dislike of him; he got laughs are other peoples’ expense (everyone but male, young & white)

  5. So many of today’s so-called comedians seem to rely on foul language rather than genuine humour to gain laughs. Thank goodness for the few that don’t!
