The downloadable Dinner Party Download, with Rico Gagliano and Brendan Newnam, always features an "icebreaker," the joke that will help you on your way to becoming the life of the dinner party. The best part is that these are not just jokes, but the favorite jokes of people like The Watson Twins, Leslie Caron, Tom Jones, and Billy Bragg. These jokes have bona fides that guarantee your success, or at least an alibi. (Shrugging, nonchalantly, "Well, Tom Jones thought it was funny.") Now, for the first time, DPD collects these hilarititans together. Come inside to find out who is telling the jokes.
