A Few Yuri Jokes

Stan Freberg here. A famous Russian clown died recently; one of Boris Yeltsin's favorite comedians. A couple of his gags, in a moment. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Who said Communists didn't have a sense of humor? Russia's premier clown, Yuri Nikulin, made them all laugh - Yeltsin, Kruschev, even Stalin, and he never got shot. Probably by staying away from too many Communist gags.

Here's a couple of Yuri jokes: A model arrived at an artist's studio, shivering and blue from the cold. So before she posed, he gave her a cup of coffee to warm up. Suddenly he saw his wife coming and said, "My wife is coming! Take off your clothes quick, or else she might suspect something else!"

And another: A circus manager received a telephone call. "(Ahem) you need a talking horse in your show?" The manager hung up the phone with irritation. The phone rang again. "Listen, you idiot, you think it's easy to dial your number with a hoof?"
