HERE is my submission. I hope it tickles some funnybones. Good luck everyone.

Cry 'Havoc', and let slip the dogs of war.

Woof, woof bitches!

On a less apocalyptic note, has anyone tried to do some comedy-themed outreach via twitter etc.? The Melbourne Comedy festival is on at the moment (saw Marcel Blanch-de Wilt last night - still recovering), so it just occured to me that a lot of Aussie standup comedians might be a bit more active on social media than usual.

Seems like a no-brainer, because most of these people - the ones performing in the small clubs, not the big venues, could use a bit of extra cash...

·

We are always looking at ways of reaching people outside steem to bring them in. We are in the process of developing a reddit and twitter presence to try to bring more people in. If you have a idea on how to reach more people we'd love to hear it.

·
·

I'm too sleep deprived for any more bright ideas today - not that contacting comedians on twitter is rocket surgery or anything.

·
·
·

rocket surgery

daem that's some advance wank concept you got there, come meet us in the #marketing channel in discord to hand job....ahem mean hash out the brain farts....i mean precision darts

·
·

I do 3d animation of the comedy variety, video edit all that jazz, i could do up a couple videos for you or something let me know , cheers

·
·
·

Absolutely that would be really cool and greatly appreciated. Hit us up on discord and we can talk if you have time.

Discord

·

you could come over to the discord dungeon and have everyone wank over this golden idea. cheers Dougy

Here is my entry for Comedy Open Mic Round 10: "I'm Too Busy!".

·

Shit, you are really into college boys, huh? Whatever keeps you young, brother.

·
·

Whooosh! That was the sound of that joke going over your head!

·
·
·

Oh, there was a joke?

Thanks for putting this on.

Here I go again. Let's see if this fucker can gain traction.

I'd like to thank the Academy for their consideration.

Come all Indonesian steemian join in Comedy Open Mic, do not feel comedian if not participate in this contest. Ha ha.

·

Wow,
Not feel more than two months contest #comedyopenmic.
Hopefully more success and this contest will continue.
Thank you very much for this happiness

no dout great comedy

Well, for fuck sake. I didn't know that you had to leave this page. I've just been checking out these posts on here and then noticed other posts that are carrying the round ten title that aren't on here.

Don't I feel like a dolt. That explains so much about the last times I entered.

·

Do we have to make a seperate post for entries? All the memes posted has confused me

·
·

I don't know what you mean. I thought that the entry link had to be posted here, so I thought that these were all the entries. They aren't. The comedyopenmic tag and then click "new" will take you to the entries.

Here's my entry, I've called it Moon Noobs

Thanks for the nomination @lucygarrod

·

Smart post.

I'm still too afraid to buy cryptocurrency. I was going to buy Steem when I first got on here, but don't trust all of the whales to do the right thing. I see way too much abuse of the system and until that cools down, I can't justify investing what little spare cash I have in it.

·
·

Hehe, I was for years man - then I just watched video after video, read more and more to understand it then I just thought, screw it, I'll take the plunge and went for it.

I wouldn't buy anything that you can get for free like steem, musicoin or others by earning through content creation. Otherwise yea, you do get abuse of the system.

Here is my submission, hope it makes you laugh, thanks for putting on the contest and @profanereviews for sending me this way with his nomination... how-3-people-from-my-family-peed-on-a-friend-of-mine-in-a-week

Help me!! Open mic has turned my peaceful blog into a riot. LOL


This contest is great. I have been looking for a place to get some laughs here and this is the place to be. Best of laughs.

Lots of laughs to be had in here, as always. Here is my entry for this week.

·

Insightful limerick :D

·
·

Thank you. Funny thing is, it's sort of autobiographical. I remember laughing very very hard at a mate of mine who actually had this happen to him. :-D He was naive enough to tell me about it, too. LOL

·
·
·

Haha, silly man

Special military manufacture

·

What? Are the judges here manufacturing special military? Fuck, I knew this was too good to be true.

How are they doing it, brainwashing us with promises of riches if we get the world preoccupied with laughing? Come on, you have to tell us.

This is a good comedy place.massive improvement go them. best of luck..

This is such a great initiative! There is far too little comedy in the Steemit community. I know that this competition will find a comfortable home here. Fantastic idea! Thanks to you and all of the generous supporters for getting this going!
