    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.
  2. 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...
  3. My go-to bad joke is:

    What's a pirate's favorite drink?


    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

    i like to tell the sound guy to adjust my autotune.
  11. 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.

    he said, "arrr, it's drivin' me nuts!"

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

    Our next song... Have any of you been really screwed over in relationships?

    *cheers, hoots etc*

    Great, because this song is not about that.
