“I don’t smell like wine. I smell like cherry and a hint of oak.”
Comedian Grant Lyon understands something about wine humor that most don’t — how to make wine humor funny.
We’ve discussed many times on the blog why most wine humor is so sad — that it depends on cliches and stereotypes that weren’t funny then and aren’t funny now. Lyons found a way to twist the cliches with this bit, about getting stopped by a cop while coming home from a wine tasting. Plus, he knows not to belabor the point, moving on to something else after getting his laughs. Would that this video and this video could say the same.
