Last month I wrote about the three most common types of mix jokes:
* Mixes that apply attributes of one thing onto another
* Mixes that combine two familiar things to create something new
* Mixes that use one thing to talk about another
I also presented the classic two-list method for writing these types of jokes:
1. Find two subjects you have a reason to mix
2. Make two association lists, one for each subject you’re mixing
3. Combine elements from each list, focusing on comic relationships and contrasts
4. Use these combinations to create candidate jokes
5. Review your joke candidates
6. Test some of your new jokes onstage
This month I’m going to apply this method to a real-world comedy hole in the middle of my show.
