Comedy Cringe Fest - Day 1

Comedians are a thick-heeled bunch who must face nightly criticism flung at them in the form of rotten produce, the occasional projectile, or, more commonly, an insulting barb called a heckle (or sometimes a 'jeckle'). Due to the unforgiving nature of hard-to-please audiences, the stand-up circuit is nearly impossible to break into for most would-be comedians. And if you're a party cake, it's even harder to get any respect. Sure, the crowd loves your sweet frosting and whimsical shape, but once you start to tell jokes, those heckles begin.

But these Baker's Coconut & Chocolate Party Cut-Up Cakes are some real cut-ups -- no hecklers here!

Welcome to the first night of the weeklong Comedy Cringe Festival live from the Curly Wurly Comedy Wainscotting brought to you in association with the 1968 classic, Baker's Coconut & Chocolate Party Cut-Up Cakes. There will be two acts per night, and they are sure to delight! (Note: Two drink minimum.)

Tonight's Jokers: You'll go cocoon over 'BUTTERFLY CAKE'! And, you know who else is funny? 'HONEY of a BUNNY'!

(Act #1: Butterfly Cake)
I was flying in the jungle and there was this monkey with a can opener. I said to him, 'You don't need a can opener to peel a banana.' He said, 'No, this is for the tomato soup!'

(Act #2: Honey of a Bunny)
How do bunnies get from one vegetable garden to another?
They take a taxi cabbage!

Why did the bunnies go on strike?
They wanted a raise in celery!

Tomorrow's Jokers: What has eight legs, a hard shell, and barks? Comedy Cringe Fest's second set of comedians!
