Comic delivery is what makes or kills a good joke. If you ever tried to tell a joke and mistimed your
punchline you may know what I mean. Comedians practice timing and delivery many times before they
become good at it. In the following joke about religion/atheism Dane Cook includes several digressions to
build up the tension of expectation before he gets to the punchline and detonates it when you least expect
it. It is a good example of 2 TEMPORAL DIMENSIONS of a joke. Do you remember what they are and
what they mean? (DURATION and the INSTANT).
