PROMPT: …then the crowd erupted with laughter…

I was practising my joke and getting ready for the comedy show. Me and the others were only doing one joke each. When we were ready we came on stage and the curtains opened.

We lined up and said our jokes one at a time. I was at the back of the line so I would be last. Nobody laughed at any of the jokes, and then the time came. I said my joke:

“Why do we tell actors to break a leg? Because every play has a cast!” At first nobody laughed, but then the crowd erupted with laughter.
