I was performing yesterday. I made my white rabbit appear. A boy said, "Make him jump." I said, "White rabbits can't jump." The adults laughed. The kids did not understand it.

Mike,

That was a perfect comment at the perfect time. Sometimes we throw jokes out to the audience knowing that only a small handful will get them. That's OK; I do it all the time too. And if a few groans, I tell them, "Hey, some of these I do just for ME". Smile

Oh, that's good!! I _must_ remember that! My humor gets more eye rolls and tomatoes than it does laughs.

Some of my best lines came from I don't know where
during my shows. I record all all of my shows to capture those lines so that they can end up in future shows.

I like that. What about, "Last time he did it took me 3 months to get him off the ceiling"? I like Carls post also about taping the performance. I don't even use a rabbit. Lots of good play with one. Lots of one liners I am sure.

Great comment at the right time. I think the auidnece just needs and wants to see you handle situations. if you ignore all fo them, many times it makes the audience uncomfortable. in this case you addressed it, got most of the audience laughing and then moved on. it shows a professional and allows you to stay in control.

Just to throw in a wrench....why is it OK and even in general agreement to say that the white bunny cant jump? If I said a sterotype of my black rabbit I would be called a racist. As a note I did find it funny but could someone answer this question.

Because of history and how some groups of people have been treated in the past (and unfortunately in the present).

It's too bad that's the way it is. But it just is.

I understand what you are saying and I would usually agree but his line was only funny because there is a movie called "White men can't jump". If it were an actual racist comment, I would agree with you.

I get the joke, but you still did not answer my question,and if someone said "whats yur rabbits name?" and I said "Kunte Kinte cause he is black and works for free" I would be considored a racist, even though there was the movie "roots".

I, for the record have a white rabbit, his name is stewart and I am not a racist, I just want to know why the difference?

Good. I thought you did not at first.

If you want to discuss racist information you are in the wrong forum.

There is a BIG difference between the two. One is a funny name of a movie and the other (yours) is extremely racist. IF you still can't see the difference between the two, I'm afraid I can't help ya there.
