No you may not.
Ha. I was kidding of course you can call me Santa.
Comedy has always been a passion of mine and I’m always working on new material. You know you can’t just keep recycling the same cracker jokes.
Well of course I love Richard Pryor, Bill Hicks, George Carlin etc… but I’m also a student of some of the more obscure comedians. Pol Pot for example.
Sure. I mean I’m not for a moment suggesting he was a good boy and he certainly got no presents from me for most of his life but what can I say, he was a funny guy.
Oh sure. Let me see. Oh this is one of my favourites. Why did Adolf Hitler commit suicide?
He got his gas bill. Ha-Ha-Ha.
Okay, okay I admit that was a bit near the knuckle. How about this one, Why did Hitler cross the road?
To get to the genocide. Ha-Ha-Ha. Oh come on, that was a good one.
Woah hold on there. I think it’s unfair to condemn a man just because he told a couple of jokes that were in poor taste. His comedy was much broader I just picked two at random.
Oh that’s easy. Though it has been a while so you’ll have to give me a second. Mmm. Well there’s the one about the…ah, that does mention Nazis. Er…Okay you got me. He only told jokes about Nazis and genocide.
Hey look I laugh at everything. I’m jolly old Santa for Christ sake. I laugh at paint drying. It’s like I’m cursed or something.
But aren’t you going to ask me what my favourite film is?
Oh come on. I came to earth a day early to give this interview.
Okay. My favourite film of 2013 was The Act of Killing. Hands down one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in years.
