Carry-Jokey Proven To Be Less Dangerous Than Sky Diving
Carri-Jokey It is a new pastime that combines the popularity of karaoke with the fun of stand-up comedy. Everyone loves to make people laugh. Now there is a way for the non-professional to take center stage and tell jokes.
The concept is simple: instead of singing a song as the words scroll onscreen, the participant delivers jokes. Comedy is no longer just for professional comedians.
Karaoke brought the stage to millions of amateur singers across the world and Carri-Jokey will give that stage to millions of amateur jokesters.
Operation of the equipment is as simple as the karaoke machine. A performer will click on the routine of their choice; it opens and scrolls karaoke-style on the screen while the performers deliver the joke. A hand-held device that slides up onto a microphone will allow him or her to control the speed and direction of the text. That same controller can activate sound effects such as laughs, groans, high-hats, whistles, horns, wails, etc. to add to the performance.
Mr. Weiss tells us that the official launch will be in mid-autumn of this year. He says “We will also be playing at bars and restaurants, comedy clubs, farmer’s markets, swap meets and benefit events.”
Some aggressive and innovating things are being planned for the web site as well. The website will have hundreds of free sample jokes plus membership offers to the vast catalog. Users can form Carry-Jokey Clubs or join existing clubs. The clubs will have their own Meet Up style page. Plans are even in place to have an online dating club, CJ Pick-Up Lines, which will match up members based on a range of qualities including what kinds of jokes they like.
Indeed, the only danger to the performer is from the audience.
