31 Christmas cracker jokes that are so bad they’re good


Apparently, the secret to great comedy is timing and a faultless delivery. The material itself is of very little consequence.

Sort of like ordering your Friday night take away then?

The ‘it’s the way you tell them’ theory is one stiffly relied upon by Christmas crackers. You know – those little coloured festive dining table decorations you pull between a pair of friends. There’s a disappointingly hushed bang, a disappointing toy/magic trick, a disappointing disintegrating hat and… of course the joke, which is almost universally disappointing too, but can be lifted into comedy gold if you nail the delivery. No pressure then. Best get practicing…
