When good words go bad

Sometimes things come out of your mouth wrong. It's a good way to ruin a joke. But it can also lead to some fun riffing opportunities. Here's a recent set at an open mic where I got tripped up on the phrase "malignant tumor."



One of those times where ya have to see opportunity instead of crisis. Fun example of this is Paul F. Tompkins riffing on "Spangwish" during his "Sesame Street" bit on Impersonal. Gaffigan also has a fun one on "Doing My Time" where his inner voice character mocks him for slurring his words ("I think he's drunk").
