That’s what Letterman & other shows pay if they use your joke.
(This is a repost, but with the economy being what it is, I thought we’d better try to laugh.)
I know someone who gets paid $100 to tell jokes to groups like civic clubs, church groups, etc. She pretty much tells the same jokes to each group, but she enjoys it & has an entertaining delivery. They are jokes that she finds in books, so you don’t have to be original.
If you are a budding comic, this is your chance. Even if you’re not a comic you can get some extra money this way. And if no one buys your jokes, at least you were thinking of funny things rather than depressing things.
Don’t feel like joking? Watch some funny movies. Laughter is the best medicine after all.
