April Fools – A Mix of Standup and other Comedy
I’d be just as curious to find out more about the origins of April Fools Day as I would to learn who decided it would be the only holiday to end midday. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that the decision to cut the day short was made around the same time they discovered that putting a persons hand in hot water could make them wet the bed. I’d personally be fine loosing the day altogether. I understand making fun of people who are arrogant, vein, or stupid, but practical jokes seem to mostly involve ridiculing people for being trusting, which beyond being mean is just inherently less funny.
With my regular Sunday radio show falling on April 1st, I decided to take a break from my usual selection of unusual music and play compilation of actual jokes by some of the funniest people in the history of laughter. Attempting to mix the segments with a similar rational to how I’d compile a music mix, I tried to create the least intrusive transitions between the bits and to provide a considered arc throughout. More importantly, I just tried to fit as many laughs as I could into a single show.Download Now
