Joke of the Year

Rooftop favorites Kumail Nanjiani, David Angelo, Sean Patton, Taylor Williamson, and Brent Weinbach have all been nominated for “Joke of the Year” by Time Out New York and your vote will help decide the winner.

And the nominated jokes are…

Sean Patton
“If I had to choose between being eaten by a shark or getting my heart broken again, I’d rather get eaten—at least the shark actually wanted me.”

David Angelo
“I went to a Turkish bath recently. It’s a lot like a regular bath except it doesn’t recognize the Armenian genocide.”

Taylor Williamson
“I went to a department store and saw a pregnant mannequin. That really bothered me. You know it wasn’t consensual.”

Kumail Nanjiani
“The song ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ was released to raise awareness about Ethiopia famine in the mid-’80s. What most people don’t know is that the Ethiopians released a response song called ‘Do They Know We’re Muslim?’ ”

Brent Weinbach
“Women are from Venus. Men are from Pagina.”

Who will emerge victorious? Will it be Genocide? Mannequin Rape? Famine? Heartbreak? Pagina? What the hell is Pagina, by the way?

And we thought the last election was close! Vote today! It’s your civic duty, America.
