Lesson 3: Triples

The Triple refers to a joke structure (either spoken or visual) where the first two words or visuals set up the joke (the expectation) and the third in the sequence is the non-sequitur (the unexpected; laugh).

For a visual joke pan from the two set up visuals and the third is your gag. For written pieces or dialogue, including standup, the first two setup and the third is your punch.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, come up with four or five words to finish this sentence, "Remember, if you're captured just give them your name, rank, and _______."
