Five jokes from Fozzie Bear
Wocka! Wocka! We challenge the joke-telling Muppet to write us five gags
Tue Mar 18 2014
Fozzie Bear has been practising this comedy lark for nearly 40 years. Has he still got it? To celebrate the release of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’, we put the lovable furball to the test and challenged him to tell us a joke on five different topics. We’ll let Fozzie introduce the gags himself…
‘Wocka! Wocka! Fozzie Bear here! Comedy has always been challenging to me, and I’ll prove it with these five jokes! Here goes!’

‘Everybody knows that the sequel’s never quite as good,’ sing our furry friends during the opening number of a film with much to live up to after 2011’s terrific reboot, ‘The Muppets’. This self-deprecating gag proves to be self-fulfilling. The plot of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ concerns a Muppet world tour run by new manager Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), during which Kermit is replaced by an evil doppleganger called Constantine.
AS the elusive US comedy heavyweight and ‘Chappelle’s Show’ star heads to London, we offer some essential viewing to get you pumped (or bring you up to speed)
