Banjo Player Jokes

As a banjo player, I'm sure you've experienced being the brunt of the jokes at your local jam. I thought I'd list just a few things others are saying about us so you can be prepared for the next barrage.

  • Banjo players spend half their lives tuning and the other half playing out of tune.
  • What will you never say about a banjo player?
    That's the banjo player's Porsche.
  • "Doctor, doctor will I be able to play the banjo after the operation?"
    "Yes, of course…"
    "Great! I never could before…"
  • Why do fiddlers pick on banjo players?
    Because they can't pick on their fiddles.
  • Anyone can play one of them things - all you need is three fingers and a plastic head.
  • If you practice, tune, make a sound check, and sit down to play it's Folk music -- otherwise it's Bluegrass.
  • "Some people call this next song Cripple Creek -- but they're wrong!"
  • A few years ago a lost group of banjo players were discovered on a remote island in the Pacific.
    When asked how they survived for so long, they answered, "from the supplies dropped by the helicopters…"
  • What's the difference between a banjo player and a savings bond?
    A savings bond eventually matures and earns money.
  • No matter how much you tune it -- it will still sound like a banjo!
