  1. More Jay

    I’ve heard it or a variation before (as I have 2 & 3), funny I thought that you would have voted for #1 πŸ˜‰

  2. Oh and what about #4?

    “Dont be Sicily”

    πŸ˜•

    Surely he could have worked Scilly in there?

  3. G’more guys.

    2 is lightweight and shouldn’t have made the cut. I like 4 and have made my own variation.

    My friend told me he was going to a fancy dress party as a dwarf. I said to him “Don’t be Dopey”.

  4. Ha ha TR, like it πŸ™‚

    My friend told me he was going to a fancy dress party as an animal. I said to him β€œDon’t be an ass”.

  5. My friend told me he was going to a vegan fancy dress party. I said to him β€œDon’t be nuts”.

    I’m on a roll πŸ™‚

  6. Apart from #8, I don’t find any of these very funny. Tim Vine is normally good, but #4 is a bit lame.

    Good evening FEEG.

    Aye weel, you have to be there. Which, as it happens, I am. And have now been for so many glorious years.

    The point is that you go to these shows more in hope than expectation. But, when they are good, you are bombarded with so many one-liners that you end up pouring back out into Embra (cold and drizzling), aching with laughter and trying desperately to remember any of it.

    You;re right, of course, None of the 10 are that good on their own but I’ll bet that they were part of pretty strong sets which is why they got there.

    My favourite (so far) this year. Henry, ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld of Test Match Special Team fame in the midst of an anecdote involving Her Majesty the Queen presenting a fruit cake to said team in the Committee Room at Lords, Blowers told the tale well and then brought the house down with the line:-

    ‘We took the cake back to our commentary box which I really hate now because it looks exactly like the mouth of the wife of one of our former Prime Ministers.

    You really, really, had to be there, I suppose..

  8. Hi JM

    Isn’t that true, be it almost any live event, “you have to be there.”

    By the way, last night a friend of mine told me he was going to a fancy dress party as a stand up comic. I said to him β€œDon’t make me laugh”.

  9. G’more S & J,

    This morning a friend of mine told me he was going to a fancy dress party as something utterly ridiculous. I said to him “Don’t be preposterous”.
