The Daily Point Headers

Bill EmCeeingFor the past several years I’ve been honored to emcee a very special event with my former colleagues at Weichert, Realtors.  Jace Botti and Laura Metro (a survivor herself) host an annual event at Fiddlers Elbow Country Club to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  The Weichert family has been impacted by the deadly disease in a very personal way and for the past 16 years have been rallying the real estate community to help.

I was first invited to emcee about 5 years ago as a replacement for the young lady who had been the regular host.  Let’s just say the room full of mostly men golfers after a long hot day on the links were less than pleased that I was the replacement!  Yes, a couple boos…and some heckling.  And my joke telling didn’t help at all.

This year, my colleague Jessica Nutt from Chasing News joined me to help deliver prizes to the winners of the raffle and silent auction.  She captured my attempt at comic redemption with the “Muffin Joke”.  This was a joke told to me by comic Tommy Johnigan on a recent visit to my studio at NJ 101.5.  According to him it was his favorite “Street Joke.”  So how do you think it went over?  Take a listen… 

You can check out the full story from Jessica on Friday night’s Chasing News.  We’ll also post a link here on the blog next week.

The good news is that I did get some redemption with the “Penguin Joke”.  This one I first heard from a listener calling in to win Stress Factory tickets.  Much better reception, although not appropriate for our broadcast, check it out here…

In case you’re wondering, although I’m gettin’ better…I think I’ll stick with the day job.
