One of my favourite opening monologues yet Danny. Loved the way you'd set the "bad" jokes up and then follow the pretend payoff with the real one. I know you didn't invent that but you've damn near perfected delivering them in this form. I'm also thankful I don't check Twitter often enough to catch these on there.

Except for the High No One joke. That's a perfect clever joke for Twitter which doesn't work for me delivered vocally. And I also didn't get the Book of Job/Funions joke because I don't know shit about either reference.

Everything else in the monologue though was gold, and the rest of the ep was a ton of fun(ions?) too.
