Local amateur stand-up comedian Jeff Browne ruined an otherwise perfectly lovely evenings entertainment at a local fleapit by telling knock-knock jokes Patrons booed and hissed and tossed used condoms and dirty nappies at the un-funny man until he eventually stumbled off the stage a broken man. He has vowed never to tell another joke as long as he lives.
It all had started so well, with Dave being politely applauded as he climbed onto the small stage. Things quickly started to go downhill once he started his 'act'.
"He started off with a knock-knock joke, which we all thought was him being all post-modern-like, ya know", said one unhappy customer who witnessed the whole event, "but then he did another one, and another one, and he just kept on going with these shite knock-knock jokes".
The final straw came when he did this particular creaky old knock-knock piece of crap:
Oh, no need to cry, little girl, I just want to know if your mummy's in!"
"Once I did that one, I knew that was me fucked. And that was my best material and all….", said a dejected Dave today.
