Line Gag-Epitaphs

By | May 5, 2019


Famous Last Words.


The performers will make a series of puns, and gags portraying the last words or epitaphs of anything you suggest.


Line Gag is a structure that is both an exercise and a handle. This is the handle version of the structure called Epitaphs. For a detailed explanation of line gags see the exercise Line Gags

For Epitaphs the host should can pick a famous person or noun for the performers to riff off of. Once this is established the performers will step out and vomit gag juice all over the audience with a series of snappy puns.

If the offer was the epitaph or famous last words for a loaf of bread the performers could step forward with witty assitudes like: “I am sorry I was so crusty to you all.” Or “I am toast.”
