Tell your joke!

Here's how it works:

Step 1
You will need to log in or create an account, then press the 'Call me' button. 2-3 seconds later, your phone will magically ring.
Step 2
The cheerful, soothing-voiced woman will talk you through the process. It's really just like leaving a message for someone. (Only funnier!)
Step 3
You will enter a title and some descriptive words for the joke and you're done!

Don't worry, if you goof something up you can cancel the process or delete the joke at any time.

Top Joke-Telling Tips

Don't read your joke
The best jokes told are the ones not read from a script. Try to memorize and practice your joke before telling it. If you can tell it without looking at notes, it will sound much more natural. NOTE - No one really says, "he replied" or "she responded." These are purely written joke phrases. Get rid of them!
Get into character
Change your voice or accent for each of the characters in your joke and try making some impromptu sound effects to accentuate the story.
Embellish
Joke-telling is storytelling. Use details (place names, character descriptions, etc) to make your joke sound more like a real story that you are recounting to a friend. Details draw the audience in and disguise the impending, and hopefully hilarious, twist ending.
Go retro with a Land Line
If you don't have a great cell signal, or a high quality cordless phone, you may be better off going old-school with a landline.
Don't distort
Don't hold the phone too close to your mouth and don't yell. You'd be surprised how sensitive telephone microphones are.
Record it again
If your train of thought derails halfway through the joke, re-record it. Umm's and missed cues should not make it into a Comic Wonder-worthy performance.
