Mime is a unique form of performance art that involves expressing a story or an idea through body movements, gestures, and facial expressions, without the use of spoken words. Originating from ancient Greece, mime has evolved over centuries, becoming popularized in its modern form in the early 20th century. Mimes, often dressed in black and white with painted faces, perform in a silent, exaggerated manner. They are skilled at creating an imaginary world for the audience, relying solely on their physicality to convey emotions and narratives. This art form is celebrated for its creativity and the skill required to communicate effectively without speech, making it a captivating and distinctive form of entertainment.
But did you know that, despite their silence, mimes can be pretty amusing? Their ability to use physical humor to portray complicated emotions and situations is a comedic goldmine. Mime jokes capitalize on mimes’ natural ridiculousness and their silent environment. They make fun of mimes’ exaggerated motions, sometimes illogical routines, and the embarrassing circumstances they frequently find themselves in.

One day an out of work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some money as a street performer.
However, as soon as he starts to draw a crowd, the zookeeper grabs him and drags him into his office. The zookeeper explains to the mime that the zoo’s most popular attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly. The keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts.
The next morning, before the crowd arrives, the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage. He discovers that it’s a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime.
However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he gets bored just swinging on tires. He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his.
Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top to the lion’s cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it.
At the end of the day the zookeeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction as a gorilla.
Well, this goes on for some time. The mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion, he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. The lion gathers itself and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the lion close behind.
Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, “Help, Help me!”, but the lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says, “Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?”

A bar is having a mime competition, and the finalists are an Englishman and an American.
The Englishman starts, putting his hand into a fist. The American replies, placing his hand in front of him (palm facing the Englishman) The Englishman then raises his index in the air. The American raises two fingers. The Englishman raises three fingers. The American joins the ends of his five fingers. The Englishman joins his index and thumb into an O shape. The American moves both hands in front of him, starting close to each other and moving apart, as if starting a breaststroke swimming motion… Confused, the Englishman gives up and the American is declared the winner.
The Englishman joins his friends, still baffled by the outcome of the match, and they ask him what happened. He explains, “Well, I started off by raising by fist, meaning that we must be strong when facing adversity. He replied with a hand, to symbolise peace, and I went on with a finger to represent unity. He raised two fingers, for duality. I raised three, for Trinity. So then he joins all his fingers, to symbolize family! I joined my index and thumb in a circle, to tell him, “Great job” on the family mime… but then he did that odd motion, and I just couldn’t understand!”

I tell him WHOA, calm down, man! But then he says to stick a finger up my ass! I tell him, you stick two fingers up your ass! He holds up three fingers! I tell him, yeah, well stick a whole fuckin hand! But then he says his hole is too small! Well, I tell him, hey, you can always stretch it!”
