Children in Dublin, Cork and Galway tell the jokes popular in their schools.
You know the way when kids in school start telling jokes, nothing and nobody is sacred.
He has reason to be worried as one pupil from St Patrick's Girls' National School, Hollypark in Dublin has a repertoire of Gay Byrne jokes.
Other children follow more traditional comedic lines recounting 'Doctor Doctor' and Kerryman jokes. Some jokes are short and sweet, while others depend on a lengthy build-up to reach the punchline.
'The Late Late Toy Show’ began in the early 1970s as a half-hour slot at the end of ‘The Late Late Show’, designed to give parents an idea of what toys were in the shops for Christmas while their children were supposed to be asleep in bed. It soon became a one-night show in its own right, complete with children toy-testers and performers.
This episode of ‘ The Late Late Toy Show’ was broadcast on 7 December 1990. The presenter is Gay Byrne.
