Like J. Totale, I find that repartee indecipherable, and would be grateful for a transcription.
He was telling them in 2002: "You might notice those pieces of paper on my guitar player's shoes; those are foot notes."
I have always liked the joke noted curmudgeon Van Morrison told about what the Dalai Lama said to the NY hot dog vendor, "Make me one with everything."
Dan Hicks, on the DH & the HL live record Where's The Money.
A really really old joke, but I would have loved to have heard Van's delivery of it.
Maybe he'll tell it again some time.
"I see all my slutty girlfriends...with their stupid boyfriends!!!"
I'm sure he's already been mentioned, but Tom Waits is hilarious on stage.
Here's a great rant I bet hasn't been mentioned yet.
I've seen Richard Thompson tell the very same joke.
I remember one of the many times I saw Rush, before one song (I don't remember which) Geddy goes on about how on the album they used studio singers for a backup vocal but they didn't have them here so Alex has to do it and to be prepared cos it's gonna be bad!
If corny or rube is “funny,” introductions to music on Hew Haw made me laugh.
Edited: Hee Haw.
" Does anyone remember laughter?"
May not be that funny. But it's fun to make fun of it.
Another one from Rick Wakeman at one of his own shows.
Jeff Tweedy, Richard Thompson, and the guy from the Mountain Goats could all be stand-up comedians.
Paul Stanley's stage banter from "Kiss: Alive!" and David Coverdale's yap from the 1976 Deep Purple KBFH are unintentionally hilarious. What a pair of bozos.
I love the intro to "Goin Down" on that Purple disc:
Coverdale: "Now if you seeee my baby..."
Glenn Hughes: "If anyone's seen my baby..."
Coverdale:" If you seeeeeee my baby"
Hughes: "Tell her I want some fockin' cocaine!"
Coverdale: "Tell her I'm goin down slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww"
A joke that was repeated every time I saw the reunited Everly Brothers over a few years. Don would introduce "Crying In the Rain, " mentioning Carol King and how talented she is. Phil would then reply, "We should have married her."
I love in the Elvis '68 special before Heartbreak Hotel where he sits down, strums his guitar once and then says "Goodnight!" standing up like he's gonna leave.
I heard it in a Mekons song.
David Lindley tells some really funny stories between songs. He's worked with so many recording artists and has a super sharp memory of many of them. But the only story I can (vaguely) remember was about being kicked out of a Helen Reddy recording session, by her husband, for eating his donuts.
Zappa, during King Kong in '82, referencing a show 3 years earlier during Don't Eat The Yellow Snow where some guy from the audience started yelling a poem.
"I want a garden!
I want a nun!
I want a garden!
Just like the garden that that ******* came up here on the stage
And sang about, three years ago...
He came up out of the audience,
He said: "I want a garden!
I want a garden!
I wanna water it with my tears..."
And then Denny Walley said: "Oh, you want kindergarten!"
"The next song is an oldie, some of you older people might remember...(pause)...from last year, it's called "She Loves You".
"The next song is on Beatles Five or Beatles Sixty-four or something like that. I don't know, I haven't got it"
Agreed -"uncomfortable seat"
does anyone remember laughter?
Das Furlines. I can't find a much online, but anyway you had to be there.
Tom Waits' between songs monologues on Nighthawks At the Diner are hilarious.
Robyn Hitchcock's onstage monologues are funny on a whole other level. He should release a whole album of them. It would have to be better than Having Fun With Elvis On Stage.
Separate names with a comma.
