There’s nothing like a great one line joke. Just like it takes planning and smarts to deliver an amazingly funny longform story, it takes special talent to write and deliver a short joke that will stick with an audience. Below, we’ve chosen 10 of our favorites one-to-few-line jokes from Bob Newhart, Zach Galifianakis, Steven Wright, Jimmy Carr, Tommy Cooper, Jim Gaffigan, Demetri Martin, Rodney Dangerfield, Mitch Hedberg and Doug Benson. Scroll down and have a laugh. And, by all means, leave you favorite one-liners (or few-liners) in the comments section.
