Have you ever given consideration to your punch lines? Have you visualized them? How do you usually twist a joke? What type of punch line do you as a rule use? Or do you? Let's say you have a joke that is a killer and the punch line is twisted in a certain way, would it be a good thing to write more jokes in that formula? Or would that make your act sound too similar? But then again would that be a good thing?

I wonder if it helps to look even? Would it be valuable to you to know what kind of punch lines you have a tendency to deliver? I gotta believe it would.

I may be off again in one of my little 'zones' but I was just wondering the other day if my punch lines were telling a story. I asked myself the question if I preferred one type of punch line over another?

I'm still in the process of looking so I thought I'd ask you if you've given any thought to this? I have always asked my dojo'ers to look at their act as a whole and see if there's a story or a revelation....but what about just taking a look at the end result, the good ol' punch line? Do you have a signature finish? Is it there without you knowing it?

What are punch lines? Somebody (YOU) gets embarrassed? Hurt? Causes pain in some way? A what if or what would that be like takes place? Etc.

A punch line (or punchline) is the final part of a joke, comedy sketch, or profound statement, usually the word, sentence or exchange of sentences which is intended to be funny or to provoke laughter or thought from listeners. Few punchlines are inherently funny out of context, but when a comedian sets up the premise and builds up the audience's expectations, the punch line can function as the climactic part of the act”.
Punch lines generally derive their humor from being unexpected. The classic stand-up punch line sound is a sting (erroneously called a rimshot) on drums”.
