* Funny/AShoggothOnTheRoof



* In ''[[Theatre/ShoggothOnTheRoof A Shoggoth on the Roof]]'', the song ''To Life'' (wherein [[Creator/HPLovecraft Herbert West]] tries to convince his prospective father-in-law that reviving dead people is "supremely great work"). Especially the dancing zombie chorus.

* Funny/FunHome



* ComicBook/FunHome is a '''very'' sad musical, but that doesn't stop it from having some funny moments.
** Right before her first sexual encounter, Joan Performs a ShutUpKiss to Middle Allison and her reaction is priceless.
** When Bruce finds a dead mouse in a box of old antiques, Small Allison gladly takes it in.
-->'''Bruce:''' (Disgusted) Ugh, dead mouse.
-->'''Small Allison:''' (Excited) Oh, Oh! Can I have it?
-->'''Bruce:''' ...It's all yours (hands her the mouse).
** Regular Allison has this golden line.
-->'''Allison:''' Caption: My dad and I are exactly alike!
-->*Beat*
-->'''Allison:''' Caption, my dad and I are ''nothing'' alike.
** Middle Allison's awkward yet Adorkable sing-song rambles are bound to get a chuckle out of some.
-->'''Middle Allison:''' Joan I feel like ''Hercules!''- Oh GOD that sounds ridiculous!

* Funny/CyranoDeBergerac



* At the beginning of ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'', a man tries to insult Cyrano, telling him "Sir, your nose is... hmm... it is... very big!", (something that he's very sensitive to). Cyrano calmly responds that it is, but this insult was lousy, and proceeds to tell a LongList of better insults in many different styles. Then fights a duel with him, while improvising a sonnet.

* [[{{Funny/Thirteen}} 13]]



* ''Theatre/ThirteenTheMusical'' has several of these. What? Teenagers have a sense of humor, too.
** Brett walks into the girls bathroom, sees the tampon machine and says "Whoa, you have a candy machine in here".
** This is a line during the CutSong "Opportunity":
--->'''Lucy:''' I could be Brett's brand-new girlfriend.
--->'''Kendra:''' Lucy! Look at Brett.
--->'''Lucy:''' I could show him a lot of new tricks.
--->'''Kendra:''' He looks like a rainbow full of sad.
** Also, this exchange between Archie and Patrice"
--->'''Archie:''' ... and if you cared at all, you'd be going to save him.
--->'''Patrice:''' I don't care. I'm not going.
--->'''Archie:''' Okay.
--->'''Patrice:''' I'm not.
--->'''Archie:''' I know.
--->'''Patrice:''' You know I'm going, don't you?
--->'''Archie:''' Yup.
--->'''Patrice:''' I hate you. ''(She runs off to save [[spoiler: Evan]])''
*** In some shows, Archie would respond "I hate you too."

* Funny/{{Urinetown}}



* ''Theatre/{{Urinetown}}'' has some brilliantly funny scenes, but some productions play it more seriously than others.
** The song 'Follow Your Heart,' which is an absolutely spot-on parody of love songs.
** This exchange:
---> '''Little Sally:''' What's it like, Officer Lockstock?
---> '''Lockstock:''' What's ''what'' like?
---> '''Little Sally:''' Urinetown!
---> '''Lockstock:''' Oh, I can't tell you that, Little Sally.
---> '''Little Sally:''' Why not?
---> '''Lockstock:''' Because it's a secret, that's why!Look, its power depends on mystery. I can't just blurt it out like [[spoiler: 'There is no Urinetown! We just kill people!']] Oh no. The information must ooze out until it breaks forth in one mighty cathartic moment!! ...Somewhere in Act II, with lots of singing and things like that.
** There was a regional production that had a clear parody of ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'''s "Defying Gravity" at the end of "Look at the Sky": [[TheHero Bobby Strong]], standing on a higher level than the rest of the cast, brandished a toilet plunger (like Elphaba with her broom) under a bright green spotlight, belting the final note at the top of his lungs.
