Performed on the 4th Annual Fifty First Jokes show at Webster Hall on Tuesday. It was a fun gathering of a diverse group of comedians. We only got two minutes to share the first ideas we've had since the New Year, but everyone has a different voice and performing style. Some even chose to abandon their typical style and give a different kind of performance, like RG Daniels who showcased his beat boxing skills in a funny news report or Jon Friedman who re-invented the knock-knock joke for the new decade. In the future, knock-knock jokes are asked and answered by the same person.

If I bomb I'm going to console myself with a milkshake," then, "Okay everyone's concerned with themselves, so nobody cares if I suck or not," then when you're on stage, "Wow this room is full and really attentive. I could stay here forever," then, "That was fun afterall. I am going to treat myself to a milkshake."
