Friday’s Final Word, With Ice-T

Friday’s Final Word, With Ice-T

The old ‘pull back and reveal’ is one of the oldest traditions of comedy. Lead your audience down one path, making them believe you’re going to end up at a particular destination before suddenly pulling the rug out from under them and revealing you are actually talking about something else! The possibilities are endless.

It seems Play-Mag stalwart Ice-T is a fan of the technique too, as he Tweeted the other day:

“I’m a STAYOUT……. I’m trying to stay the fuck outta jail! #FLTG

Too many full stops for an ellipsis, but other than that, we can’t fault the technique. Our expectations were confounded, and from thence the humour arose.

Yes, I have poorly ripped-off an old Lee & Herring routine and tried to pass it off as my own work. I APOLOGISE FOR NOTHING.
