De Blasio jokes about pursuing comedy as a second act, punchline falls flat

NEW YORK CITY MAYOR DE BLASIO MOCKED FOR TWEET ON ‘BRIGHTFUTURE OF BIG APPLE

De Blasio’s awkward punchline came as he announced the return of the New York Comedy Festival alongside Caroline Hirsch, founder of comedy club Carolines on Broadway.

I just want to volunteer, I have an incredible new act where I just eat food live. … It’s kind of like modern art and comedy together,” De Blasio said.

Will you give me an audition? I really think I’ve figured out my next act. Kry dit? Kry dit? That was funny, wasn’t it?” hy het gesê, prompting laughter from Hirsch only.

See what I did there?” De Blasio insisted as other people in the room seemingly forced laughter.
