Why did the chicken cross the road? Let me guess: to get to the
Teen loft to go make knock, knock jokes because he was tired of people talking
about how he crossed the road. Was that
joke not funny? Do you think you can do
better? If so, come join Loft staff as we explore the art of joke writing. Join
us as we learn how to tell jokes that are actually funny, use satire and
everyday life experiences to create effective jokes that guarantee laughs,
appreciate great comedians and create the best comebacks EVER!
