Dave Spikey: Punchlines

Punchlines derive their humour from being unexpected - 'Punch' indicating that the 'Line' should always come as a surprise or shock. The major school of thought suggests that very few Punchlines are inherently funny out of context. There is another school of thought (actually Dave's school of thought) that the opposite can be true. In this new show he will present clear evidence to support this. He quotes:- "Put some cold water in" / "As long as you don't push me past my mothers" / "No nurse I said prick his boil!" and "That's my Thermos flask!"

Then of course there's Nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat.

Dace will also argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you don't doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.
