On January 1, 2009, I started an experiment to write one new joke every day for at least one year. As 2009 rolled forward, the universe proceeded to deal me a series of events that left me with no lack of inspiration for new material. Most of these jokes have found their way into my on-stage routine, and most of them have become staples of my act.
Now that I have made it through my first year, my focus has shifted from quantity to quality. I still update with new jokes, just not on my original every frickin' day deadline. Please feel free to grade these jokes, and heckle them. If a joke gets heckled enough, I will go back and make them better. I want to make sure my audience gets their money's worth, even though this is a free service.

Audience Participation Caption Contest
Post your captions in the Heckler's section below.
Here are mine for the week:
1. Ah, Mr. Goofy. You have a nasty habit of surviving.
2. When all legal means have failed, Disney's lawyers call in "The Fixer."
It's a crazy world out there, and Dan Fritschie feels right at home. Having been told his whole life to go into comedy, Fritschie finally took the hint (and the stage) in 2008 and hasn't looked back, mostly because audiences don't like it when you face away from them. He is a founding member of the Murder of Comics, a troupe of Tulsa-based comics with monthly showcases at the Nightingale Theater. In 2009, he was a runner-up for Best Comedian in Urban Tulsa Weekly's Absolute Best of Tulsa Awards and was once featured in People Magazine, only not for his comedy (long story). If interested in bookings, or if you just want to talk, his email is firstname.lastname@example.org
