    I'm looking for ideas for jokes to do stand up comedy (CLEAN). Just ideas, not jokes. Any thoughts?

    I recently took a stand up comedy class and performed with my friends before a live audience. I am looking for ideas for jokes. Clean humor only. What kinds of things do you see in your life or culture that seems absurd, weird, or hilarious?

    Well, you can talk about your "crazy family" or silly things like "Seinfeld topics" about random stuff, or something. I've never been good at jokes myself! But I can laugh at myself and sometimes without intention, I sound funny and that's cool. smile

      Thank you Rose. I do have a sister that would make good material.

    Oh, I think anything with children, as they can say and do some of the most hilarious things, I am finding out once again, now with my grands.  So, all the very young children in your life, whether nieces, nephews, grands, friend's children, I am sure could provide a lot of funny jokes.  I know mine in my life, keep me laughing.  That sounds like so much fun!  I hope you come up with some great stuff.  Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Hi Faith. I already had two shows  but I'm looking for different topics to do new material. Thanks for the reminder of children.

      Wow, that is awesome! You can do as I do, as I have plenty of material concerning myself over the years, and I just laugh at some of the things I have done, especially when younger and how I thought about life.

    Personal observations of everyday life can oftentimes be funny as people can generally relate to them.
    This could entail interactions with customer service/telemarketers, family members, mate/spouse, friends, past failed relationships, things that went wrong in your life, and things you've noticed while "people watching", unrealistic goals you still hope to achieve...etc

    A good idea for clean jokes, lamb, is to do what I did yesterday - Go to the Doctor's waiting room and look up some old Reader's Digests.   But then, as I was there for 4 hours, I would probably have laughed at anything.

    Clean jokes? OK, ideas...

    Maybe you should check out my book: Funny Shady Bible Stories You Were Never Told. It a hilarious comedy.

    I am so sure you could borrow some ideas from there..

    I read somewhere that comedy is humor at the expense of yourself or someone else's pain and misfortune. So I would keep that in mind. I've thought about writing something myself, but never took the time to do so. I'm a recovering alcoholic and thought I could write an extremely funny book or story about the escapades of my drinking years. There were a whole lot of those and would be hard pressed to run out of material. At the same time that it would be at my own expense, I could take a painful period and turn it into something to laugh at. I laugh at some of those things now. Why not have others laugh also. Who knows. Maybe there could even be a hidden lesson in there somewhere. This is just my example, but with a little imagination and an ability to laugh at your own shortcomings, you can come up with a lot that people can relate to. That's the key. To get somebody to say, " I did that".

      Thanks IDONO, great ideas. Self-depricating humor is so much fun. Believe me, I have a lot to work with. lol. Congrats on your recovery.
