    So, at a gig recently things were pretty mellow and the audience was not very responsive, so I tried spicing things up with some humor. "So, I've been walkin the bass for several years now and my only question is.. When will I get there?!"

    Needless to say, nobody laughed.

    Maybe: "So, I've been walkin the bass for several years now and my only question is... when will it finally relieve itself?"

    Then again, maybe that's even worse...

    My go-to bad joke is:

    What's a pirate's favorite drink?



    Rum.

    And then I turn away from the mic and listen for the groans :D

    My personal favourite 'awkward joke':

    What are the similarities between cows and grass?

    They both moo, except the grass.

    Makes me happy :D

    They probably didn't get it. Most audience members may not be familiar with the music phrases such as "walking bass line."

    Since I live in the Boston area where apparently people think Tom Brady is God, the joke I use is:

    Peyton and Eli Manning walk into a bar..........................................To watch the playoffs

    Football jokes, eh?...

    Why does Lambeau Field have astro-turf?

    To keep the cheerleaders from grazing during the game.

    My favorite is also the shortest joke in the world:

    "A baby seal walks into a club..."
