Re: We want to hear your sketch idea
by AndrewG
I like the idea of the caricature party.

My feeling with comedy is that there needs to be an unexpected development, a twist at the end. Not a lot different than a punchline to a joke.

Maybe it's a birthday party, and you organise for a caricature artist to do a funny picture of the birthday person, with his partner/wife. The drawing is to be unveiled at the party, as a present, and has the title : Bob & Mary.

Unfortunately, Mary happens to be the name of Bob's ex-wife, or mother; in error, you gave the artist the wrong name to put on the drawing.

When the drawing is unveiled, you aren't looking at it; you are taking in the laughter, which you assume to be approval and adulation for your amazing gift to the "happy" couple.
