A:

Host, Bill McCarty

A Costumed Superhero, like his favorite caped crusader Batman

Jermaine Fowler

A Filmmaker, especially after seeing The Rock

Buddy Bolton

Always a Comedian

Mike Vecchione

A Writer/Businessman/Lawyer

Marina Franklin

A Clown and then a Writer

Al Ducharme

August 16, 2009:

Q: What was the first joke you learned as a child?

A:

Host, Barry Weintraub

A German commander of a POW camp said to his prisoners, “I have good news and I have bad news.  The good news is, after 5 years, you get a change of underwear.  The bad news is, you have to change with him, you with him, and on and on…

Rob Cantrell

Remember the ‘fake-pull-off-your-thumb’ trick?  Rob’s Uncle James showed him then taught him how to do it when he was a kid!

Mike Destefano

Lenny Marcus

By Henny Youngman: “I went to the doctor, and he told me I’m too skinny.  I said, ‘I want a second opinion.’ And he said, “Sure. you’re ugly, too*.”

Jermaine Fowler

From The Simpsons when Homer visits NYC:

Homer: What do you have to drink?

Street Vendor: We have Mountain Dew and crab juice.

Homer: Eww… I’ll take the crab juice.

Mike Vecchione

Warren Holstein

Ryan Reiss

* Maybe something about He-Man?

*For the most part, these guys learned dirty jokes as kids.  But, have no fear, the pictures link to their websites, where you can find their new material and celebrate National Tell a Joke Day with the line-up from the World Famous Comic Strip Live!
