* In a ''Series/MrShow'' sketch, after a flashback in which a group of friends hold an intervention for a friend who [[FelonyMisdemeanor doesn't wash her vegetables before eating them]], DavidCross takes a shot: "Jill's ingested so much soil, her stomach oughta be listed in the 'Worm Apartment Guide.'" [[{{Beat}} Dead Silence]]. Followed by playing this trope even further with David trying to [[DontExplainTheJoke explain it]].

* A German An American, pretending to be a German, comedian on EveningAtTheImprov ''Evening at the Improv'' once started his act this way (before moving on to a more earnest performance):



** You should have watched his whole performance. He wasn't German, he was American ''pretending'' to be German, lampooning just about every German stereotype in existence. At the end of his act he drops the accent and introduces himself by his real name, which I cannot for the life of me remember. He was on one of Jerry Lewis' MD telethons more than twenty years ago. Jerry had chanced upon his act and asked him to perform on the telethon because he (Jerry) was completely taken in by it and was so surprised he was almost shocked by the reveal.

* "[[https://www.reddit.com/r/CroppedNorrisJokes Cropped Norris Jokes]]", a variant of Website/ChuckNorrisFacts that consist solely of the traditional overdone Chuck Norris jokes with half the joke removed. The result changes the joke from MemeticBadass to TriviallyObvious or casually bizarre "facts" about Norris's life with no followup, such as "I eat soup" or "A snake bit me." Most people have pronounced them funnier than the originals.

* On ''Series/NightCourt'', Christine was generally portrayed as this, [[DependingOntheWriter when she had a sense of humor at all]]. Usually she only tried for humor when she was trying to fit in with the goofiness of the other characters. Like the time when everyone was making punny jokes based on the defendant's French nationality.
-->'''Christine''': He would like to throw himself on the ''merci'' of the court.
-->(Everyone stops laughing)
-->'''Dan''': He'd like to throw himself on the "thank you" of the court?

** A lot of Moe's jokes fall into this as well.

** A lot of Moe's jokes fall into this as well. The fact that he laughs uproariously at his own horrible jokes doesn't help his case. This is implied to be because he's well past his prime.

* "Jokes that have never produced laughter" from ''TheAreasOfMyExpertise''. It's even better on the audiobook, where you hear Creator/PaulRudd read them.
