Clarinet Jokes

Like any musical instrument, the clarinet has its fair share of jokes dedicated to it.

Clarinet jokes are often aimed at the fact that there are quite a few members of the clarinet family that no-one but the die-hard clarinet fan has heard of; others refer to the sometimes obsessive search by clarinet players for the perfect reed.

And others are just variations on general musical instrument jokes with clarinet substituted for any other instrument.

Below are some of the more popular jokes about the clarinet that have been doing the rounds of music camps, orchestras and bands.
