%%%* David Wong in ''JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' ''Literature/JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' and in his columnscolumns.



* Some people -- those who have only seen it performed, or only seen the movie version -- wonder why Oscar Wilde's ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest'' is so famous. The thing is, the jokes are so rapid-fire that by the time you've had time to get one, ''five more'' have rocketed past your head. It's so bewildering that it absolutely kills SuspensionOfDisbelief. The only way to understand and enjoy a performance of the play is to have read the script enough times to have memorized half the jokes in advance.

* Many of [[TelltaleGames Telltale's]] games are like this. A good example is the miscellaneous items in Stinky's in the second season of ''VideoGame/SamAndMax''. Not only does every item have its own humorous description, but for the first three episodes, the description changes each episode.

* The audience participation of ''RockyHorrorPictureShow'' has in some parts developed so many extensive routines that the audience talks more than the actors.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RatchetAndClank2016'' follows its tie-in game fairly faithfully, but as a CompressedAdaptation where the deciding factor of if things stayed in or not was how many laughs they thought they could get out of it. Eventually lampshaded by Qwark: when Nefarious complains that his joke wasn't funny, he responds that he has to think up thousands of these things; they can't ''all'' be gold.

* It's unsurprising that WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} is this, given that it's essentially {{MST}}[[MST3K 3K]] for LetsPlay (and bad video game content in general).

This is a subtrope of the RuleOfFunny. It's almost guaranteed that the jokes will include a good number of [[ManateeGag bizarre non-sequiturs]]. HurricaneOfPuns, HurricaneOfEuphemisms and BreathlessNonSequitur are all subtropes of Rapid Fire Comedy. It may happen to you if you ArchiveBinge a comedy Webcomic.
