A funny opening line I didn't expect to be funny

I sometimes forget that people read this site. My first words onstage at The Pit last night were: "So I was watching TV the other night." And people started laughing. Someone said, "Oh, I get it." Took me a second. And then I realized they were laughing because of the post on how I hate comics who talk about TV. But actually I was just trying to get into my bit about Chuck Norris facts. Weird split second though where I thought to myself, "But I haven't said anything funny yet!?"

It was also the delivery. The way you said "I was watching TV" sounded sarcastic.

I'm only a level 3 Sarcaster so I'm not sure which of these later comments are genuine.
Where is my marlboro man?
where is his shing gun?
where have all the cowboys gone?
