Stealth Pun / Stand-Up Comedy

  • Conan O'Brien on Late Night, doing one of the 'cat is to kitten, what dog is to puppy' routines:
    "The New Orleans Hooker (long pause) had sex with several miners."
    "Michael Jackson (an even longer pause, with audience already chuckling) was famous in the 80's! What did you think I was going to say?"
  • In Crazy with a Capital F, Dan Cummins talks about an ant infestation he once had and depicts the ants speaking with British accents when describing the ways he torments them. He does explain what he's getting at, though, since it's a trademark of his to title his jokes after telling them.
    "That joke is called: 'All Ants are British, Because They Colonize.'"
