* ''Radio/ItsThatManAgain (ITMA)'' is probably the originator of this style of humour as far as BBC Radio is concerned. It was wildly popular in its day (1939-49) although to modern ears most of the jokes are incomprehensible (a fact that was lampshaded in a 1970s ''[[TheBurkissWay Burkiss Way]]'' sketch).

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. There are many scenes where literally every line of dialogue is a punchline.

* Jimmy Carr, while he does slow down when he does audience interaction segments, none of his "regular" jokes last more than 15 seconds. The jokes are essentially those lame gags found in Christmas Crackers spiced up a bit and delivered in such a deadpan style that they become funny again.

* 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.
