Drummer Jokes That Are Funny | A Drummer's Perspective

Drummer JokeI have heard so many drummer jokes in the past 25 years. Some are funny, some hurt, but most allow for the word drummer to be exchanged with the words guitar player or singer. I have searched the web for the best drummer jokes, and really it boils down to the same jokes about the riser being level, and how we aren't really musicians, etc.

Drummer and Guitar Player Jokes

I did a simple search using the words drummer jokes, found dozens of jokes, then did the same for guitar player jokes. It was amazing. So many were the same. The one about the pizza delivery driver, the joke about how we don't know when to come in, or putting sheet music in front of one of them to get them to play softer. Some have nothing to do with our ability, such as "How can you tell when a drummer is following you? You hear his knuckles dragging."

If anything, I do like the musician jokes that involve St. Peter at the pearly gates of heaven. Those jokes say more about how hard it is to make a living in music, or how we musicians are treated pretty poorly sometimes. It's the life we choose, so we have to joke about it sometimes.
