So how do you create a series of jokes about one of your parent’s while making it funny and not painful?
You ask this question: “Do you remember the time I, (__fill in the blank__) and you (__fill in the blank__)? Unless you are an axe murderer, odds are you will get some fond memories and funny stories arising from these questions. And that’s where you start…
If your relationship is close enough, go ahead and push the envelope and change up the question: “Do you remember the time when Mom/Your Sister/Your Brother did (____) and you did (___).
The honest responses (because dads never lie to their children) that you will get are the ideal set-up and punch lines for jokes at a roast. The more in-depth questions you ask, the better the jokes. If this seems too daunting and personal — hire some professional comedy roasters. Then, sit back and enjoy a day of laughter.
Happy Fathers Day!
