Saxophone Humour


Saxophone Humour

Most saxophone players seem to have a great sense of humour, as we see from some of the posts in the Cafesaxophone humour section. Please feel free to have a go at our caption competitions. (Warning this page contains nudity ).

I remember a joke my saxophone teacher told me. “A Belgian invented the saxophone as a joke, but the Americans still haven’t got it.” Most of my American friends don’t find that very funny though…

However I have found that decent saxophone jokes are very thin on the ground. having trawled the internet searching, it was all groaning rather than chuckling. There is the obligatory light bulb joke of course:

Q: How many alto sax players does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Five. One to handle the bulb, and 4 to contemplate how David Sanborn would’ve done it.

and the self effacing:
Q: How do you make two sopranos play in unison?
A: Throw one away
and finally:
Q:What’s the definition of a gentleman/lady
A:Someone who know how to play the saxophone but doesn’t.

But of course these are adapted from jokes about other instruments. So without further ado, we’ll move on to the captions.

I’m not so sure about this one, maybe I could get in trouble if I ever visit North Korea. But I’m sure it will be OK if I arrive laden with gifts: reeds, mouthpieces, ligatures maybe some pad powder. Or maybe not.

This is meant to be saxophone humour. I hope he gets it.
