Win a double pass to Sydney’s Comedy @ Marble Bar

Here’s the deal: the funniest limerick written in comments to this post will win the double pass, which can be redeemed to book seats for any one show in the next two months.

MC David Smiedt will read the limericks posted here out to the crowd at next Tuesday’s show (featuring Paul Warnes, Matt Okine & headliner Tommy Dean), and the limerick that gets the biggest laugh will win the double pass.

So, dare to be punny and do your versed! You have until Tuesday noon to offer up your efforts.

1. The winner will be contacted by email. Feel free to use a pseudonym, but the email supplied here at GFI must be valid.
2. The double pass is not valid for just turning up at the door, in case the night you’ve selected is already sold out – you have to use it to book your seats.
3. There’s absolutely nothing stopping you rocking up to the show next Tuesday and guffawing very very loudly at your own limerick – you just probably won’t be the only one who thinks of it, so make sure to book your seats.

P.S. If you can’t think of a limerick, you can always just heckle other people’s efforts in the comments. Who knows, I might find something else to give away for the funniest one-line heckle as well.

    A young eligible sire,

    Enjoyed messing with fire.

    Last night in the dark

    Went swimming with a shark,

    Now his pitch is two octaves higher.

    @ Dat:

    Now, that sounds like something Cheech and Chong would do in one of their movies! I hereby declare that in honour of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong’s Light Up Australia Tour (first tour in more than 25 years!) all other limericks submitted from now on must make some reference to something that Cheech and Chong would do!

    Ah, what the hell?

    Two stoners surrounded by smoke
    All night and all day they did toke
    Weed and hash did they seek
    Every day of the week
    Only pausing to wisecrack and joke.

    *is now concerned that limericker can be said in two ways and one of them doesn’t sound tasteful at all*

    @ lurking limericker:

    Of course: there’s never been anything tasteful about limericks, has there? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Could have been worse: Rev. Spooner might have rendered it “rimelicker” (Rimmer Licker)

    [limerick deleted due to (a) containing no reference to Cheech and Chong; and (b) recycling a limerick I first heard when I was a teen. Some originality, please. ~editor]

    Belated announcement: because of the bushfires the featured audience interaction of the night was related to fundraising for the victims of the Victorian bushfires, so this competition was postponed for a week.

    So you still have a chance to win free tickets!

    Seeing as apparently I am ancient to limit the theme to Cheech and Chong movies, let’s open it up again – Cheech and Chong themed rhymes are still fine, but limericks on any topic are acceptable as long as they are funny!

    A limerick fan from Australia

    regarded his work as a failure:

    his verses were fine

    until the fourth line

    An observant young man of the west
    said “I’ve found out by personal test
    that men who make passes
    at girls who wear glasses
    get just as good sex as the rest”

    There once was a Canadian girl
    who when bored her hair she would twirl
    she set out to travel
    through sand beaches and gravel
    but went crazy and talked to the squirrels
