Share a joke for Comic Relief

Kev F Sutherland is out to break a record, but we need YOUR help to do so. He wants to tell more jokes in one hour than anyone else in the world...all in aid of Comic Relief 2009. Have you got a joke he can use?

As the countdown begins to this year's Red Nose day on Friday 13 March 2009, BBC Gloucestershire would like your help to break the Guinness World Record for the number of jokes told in an hour.

The current record is held by the Australian comic Anthony Lehmann who in May 2005 told 549.

Now the North Somerset-based comedian and Beano writer Kev F Sutherland is going to attempt to beat that record with your help as we urge you to send in your best jokes to help him.


The BBC is delivering all the jokes to Kev on Wednesday 4 March 2009 so that he has a week to learn them.

The record attempt will take place in front of an invited audience at the Barton Hill Settlement in Bristol.

The organisation receives funding from Comic Relief to organise multicultural events to help improve and increase social cohesion in the area.  

Terms and conditions 

1. You can submit as many jokes as you like to be used in our attempt at the world record.
2. Jokes should be original, 'clean', non-offensive, not defamatory and suitable for broadcast and publication in any media.
3. By submitting jokes you give the BBC the right to broadcast and publish them in any media for any purpose throughout the world as it thinks fit.
4. The BBC does not guarantee to use every joke submitted.
5. Jokes can be any length.
6. The BBC may publish the names of the people sending in any of the jokes if it so wishes.
