Knock! Knock! Who’s There? Zombie Apocalypse!
We hear, “Shut up! No you shut up!”, “I know you are, but what am I?” and “Ur a 10. Ur a 9. Ur an 8.” coming from President Peepee’s Playhouse. What’s a comic to do? Tweet? Improv? Crack? Wrong, wrong, wrong. Nothing but knock, knock jokes! They got people through the Great Depression; they’ll get us through the Zombie Apocalypse. They’re fun, fast and will make you laugh the whole show. Knock, knock. Who’s there? I hope you are.

Help me write some knock-knock jokes for the show. You be fully compensated: 10% of the scientifically proven health benefits of laughter.

To quote Emily Dickinson: “Hope” is the thing with feathers.

This winter Manhattan looks as if it’s been invaded by some rogue unit of the Royal Canadian Mounties. I think they come in peace. They wear fur-lined hooded puffer parkas of varying lengths and colors all with a distinctive blue, red and white insignia of Canada geese.
