I told my friend I was appearing in Hamlet at the Globe Theatre He said, "Are you being facetious?" I said, "No, Polonius"

At the Roman Theatre: Brutus: Wait, which one's my seat again? Julius (sighs): A2, Brute.

A sound technician, a lighting designer and a stage manager find an old lamp backstage at a theatre. One of them gives it a rub, and out wafts a genie. “Since you all found me,” says the genie, “You each get one wish.” The sound technician steps up and says, “I wish to be sitting by a pool in my own multi-million-pound mansion!” And poof! he’s gone. The lighting director takes his turn and says, “Well, I wish to be sitting on the beach on my own multi-billion-pound private island!” And poof! He’s gone. Then the stage manager turns to the genie and says, “I wish to have them both back in 10 minutes.”

A friend of mine got sacked as a set designer for slacking. He didn’t make a scene.

Did you hear about the actor who fell through the floorboards? It was just a stage he was going through.

What's the use of them? Mine's done. Now it has to sit on the dining table for a fortnight to be admired by the only other person in the house.
