S Comedians will never fail to surprise us with their inventive ways of doing the same pull back and reveal joke again and again. I will now demonstrate the And Then I Got Off The Bus joke.
(TURN TO CAMERA)
You know the other day I got so drunk. I woke up bare ass naked, sick all over me, I had a traffic cone stuck up my bum. I was in a state of priapic excitement ... and then I got off the bus aaaah.
R What? You were on a bus all along?
S That's right.
R I assumed you must have been at home on your own!
S No. I was on a bus.
R Wow! My expectations were confounded and from thence the humour arose!
S Indeed. Observe once more as I bewitch you all again. (TURN) The other day I was really badly constipated. I was straining away (GRUNT GRUNT) for about three hours, then finally I managed to release my bowel.... then I got off the bus.
R Ah ha! I thought you were in the toilet
S No! I was on a bus all along. (TURN) The other day I was indulging my own sexual pleasure in the sinful act of onanism. And then I got off the bus. Aaaaah.
R Yeah. That's happened to me a few times as well Stew. Embarrassing isn't it? I didn't want to get off the bus, but the police made me.
S Eh. I was joking?
R Oh. And me. Ha ha! Imagine that.
S Another good tip is to go aaah at the end of the phrase 'and then I got off the bus', as it gives the impression that you are moving on to a new piece of material, and flatters the audience by implying that they were clever to have spotted the joke so quickly.
R And then I got off the bus aaah. Right. Can I have a go Stew?
S No you messed it up last week...
R No, no, please...
S OK, go on.
R (TURN) I was on the bus the other day.
S I'm gonna have to stop you there.
R No, let me go with this Stu. I think I will confound you. (TURN) I was on the bus the other day, I got on at Balham, travelled two stops to Tooting, rang the bell... and then I got off the bus aaaah.. aaaaaah. Aaaaaaah. And then I got off the bus aaaaaah etc
S No. The fact you are on a bus has to be a surprise, in order to confound us. And the thing you're doing has to be something you couldn't imagine taking place on a bus.
R OK. OK I got it. I wasn't on the bus the other day. I was indulging in behaviour that you wouldn't expect in such a public place as a bus, because as I said I wasn't on a bus.... Then I got off the bus.Aaaaah. aaaaaah aaaaaah.
S No. For experienced scholars the And Then I Got Off The Bus joke doesn't even have to take place on a bus, it could be any public place...
R A coach?
S Well yeah but..
R A minibus?
R A double decker.
S Other possible punchlines include - And then I was thrown out of the library aah, and then I got out of the toddlers' paddling pool aah, or the classic, and then I was sacked as head of the girls' boarding school biology department,aaah. That's right. I was one of the teachers!
R Wow! That was a double surprise! Brilliant!
I'm on a whiskey diet; I've lost three days already.
To my horror I found out my son was taking drugs; some of my very best ones too.
There is no word in the English language for
I'd call him a sadistic, hippophilic necrophile, but that's flogging a dead horse.
...a fish called the Henamo grunter, named because it makes grunting noises from its swim bladder.
