Comic Writer. Brain Teaser Guru.
While I do not have the courage of a stand-up comic my whole day is a plerethera of jokes (one after another ) everywhere I go AND people do laugh out loud. Coffee shops, banks, check out lines, even walking down the street or walking up to a total stranger. I have a joke about almost everything and every occasion which makes it seem natural enoughl. And strangely I do NOT have a good memory; it's just that I've done this all my life it seems- plenty of practice.
It helps that I have a "charming " Belfast N. Ireland accent, (though a USA resident for 40 years.) People compliment me on it all the time - as if it were some sort of accomplishment on my part.. So often I hear the words:
" I just love your accent! " I respond: " And to think I don't even charge for it."
If you like that, my brain teaser sessions are even better. Groups of strangers will gather round trying to come up with the answer to my puzzles, like: How do you cut a square cake into eight identical square slices using only three cuts of the knife? Or : How do you completely reverse the direction of a triangle of ten pennies by moving just three pennies into new positions?
And a recent one that only a minority of people ever seem to get right:
If the combined cost of a bat and a ball is one dollar and ten cents and the bat cost one dollar more than the ball how much did the ball cost?
If you can't sleep at night, wanting the answers, email me.
