The comedian takes the stage. It's a late night set and he may have new material. He's also carrying his jokebook. He doesn't let that affect his confidence. He is confident and knows how to work his audience.
With a smile and a focus on the microphone, he announces, “Get ready, Get ready,” sitting behind the microphone. The backdrop isn’t the brick wall that you see in comedy clubs — it’s a backdrop for photos.Sponsors and logo
The comedian is confident. He is.He's funny and has a lot of jokes.
Antetokounmpo cracks himself up. His audience laughs a bit, as do the media members present at the Bucks' postgame conference. This was after a 118-116 win over the Bucks. On March 29, just two weeks before the official start of the .
Although Jerry Seinfeld is known for his observational humor, and Jerrod Carmichael more introspective and contemplative style, Antetokounmpo prefers the “dad joke” as his favorite comedic medium.
Antetokounmpo was reading a book called “Dad Jokes: The Good.” The Bad. The Terrible. Jimmy Niro is the author. He was a Milwaukee native and couldn't believe that his publisher had told him Antetokounmpo was actually reading from his book.
ESPN spokeswoman Niro to say that she is still shocked. “I wrote these books just for fun. It's amazing to see them out there and being loved by people.
Niro is the father to five children, whom he frequently embarrasses by his dad jokes. Niro calls his humor “my style of humor” and his joke-writing process involves finding specific topics or human interest that everyone can relate, such as holidays, sports, or food. Niro believes that the best jokes come out of “punderful everyday moments.”
For Niro and his children, having a celebrity reading his work has made things easier. Antetokounmpo is a huge fan of the Bucks. They noticed that their six-time NBA All-Star showed up at the March postgame news conference with Antetokounmpo's jokebook in his large hands.
Niro said, “This is the first time my older children, who always get this humor,” that they have ever cared about the project. “… “…
Antetokounmpo was not the first to tell a cow joke after March's game. Antetokounmpo is a master at telling multiple jokes jokes about cows, pasta, footballAnd orangesSometimes, he laughs at the dais.
Once you have done that, it is time to recall the his own versionA “chicken crossing the road” joke.To celebrate his NBA title win, he shared the following:
“Why did the chicken cross a street?”
“It was running off from my dinner plate.”
Giannis made this joke for his older brother on another occasionon a private jet flight:
“What is the hardest part about learning to ride bicycles?”
It's a play on a Niro joke. In Niro's telling, the punchline is “The Road”. Thanasis is a reserve forward for Bucks and may have heard enough of the groaners.
Don't make any more jokes.🤣🤣

Giannis Antetokounmpo also has his own children. His first son was born February 2020. The second was born August 2021. Any comedian will find humor in his surroundings. Sometimes, dads make dad jokes.
Niro said, “I love indoctrinating fathers into the dad jokes world, and that's what I love to do.”
Is there anything wrong with this? It's not wrong to inject some humor into the monotonous and repetitive news conference. Mark Twain, the great writer, wrote in 1895 that “Humor” was the greatest thing and the most important thing. It is the moment it appears that all our hardnesses give way to it, and all our frustrations and resentments vanish. …”
Antetokounmpo might be right, and the Bucks may need to find a way to relax as they defend their NBA championship. Milwaukee leads its Eastern Conference semifinals with the3-2. Friday's Game 6 is at 7:30 ET on ESPN. He's not likely to quit his job to go on tour and kick-start his comedy career. However, that doesn’t mean he will stop being funny.
Antetokounmpo said, “I tell dad jokes whenever that's appropriate,” last week on the Bucks all-access Youtube channel. And advancing to the playoffs won’t stop him from going back to his joke book.[A dad joke is]Always appropriate
