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 says he imagines that all ants speak with a British accent. It's because they colonize. Well, it was a stealth pun until he explained it.
