Another Good Laugh

There were three ladies talking about how they feel about being 50 years old.

The first lady said, “There are times I find myself with the milk jug in my hand, and the fridge door open, but I can’t figure out if I was taking it out, putting it back, or pouring myself a glass.”

Another lady replied, “Yes sometimes I’m at the foot of the stairs and I don’t remember if I was going up or just came down.”

The last friend chimed in, “Well, thankfully I don’t have that yet. Knock on wood.” As she knocked on the table, she looked around and said, “Oh, someone’s at the door. I’ll get it!”

What is a Birthday Roasting?

A birthday roast is a presentation honoring the birthday person in a funny way. It is filled with comedic insults (nothing demeaning or rude – they’re just for fun), embarrassing stories, fun experiences, and heartwarming memories all about the person. Basically, you use jokes for 50th birthdays and honor the birthday person with love and affectionate teasing.

A number of close friends and family of the “roastee” are called upon to present their personal roasting anecdotes.

How are do you organize a 50th birthday roasting?

There are some basics to structuring your roast event. You need to let your guests know that you are planning a roasting and to start thinking of roasting jokes for this 50th birthday event. You want to center your invitations around the event and prepare your guests.

Here are some basic definitions to keep in mind when it comes to roasting:

Roastee: This is the guest of honor. The target of the roast.
Roastmaster: This is the host of the event.

To structure this event, make sure you dedicate a Roastmaster. This person will host the event, it is handy if they are of a comedic nature and easily speak well in front of crowds.

Inside your invitations, you can request that your guests prepare a short roast of their own. This will provide plenty of content for the night – and likely a TON of laughs!

Here’s an example of a 50th birthday roasting:

How do you decide if a roast is appropriate?

Very important! The guest of honor must have a good sense of humor – and that is a definite MUST! This type of event is a comedic play on the person’s life, so they have to be okay with some good-natured jokes.  If not, you could end up with an insulted, offended loved one and that would not be good at all.

What’s a good number of guests to make for a lot of fun?

The more people you have the more roasting that occurs. It is great to make sure everyone knows the roastee well enough to join in the fun. It is good to have a close group of friends and remember, the more people the more trouble it can cause. And I mean good, fun, warm-hearted trouble!

Your guests may even think up great jokes off the cuff and spur of the moment as they get into the spirit.

Do jokes for 50th birthdays have to be negative?

Roastings are not intended to be “negative”; they are just good-natured fun-poking at the roastee. Now with these, as long as the comments and even insults are fun and good-natured it’s okay – just make sure they are not hurtful.

What jokes for 50th birthdays are “off-limits”?

It all depends on the person.

Things that can be off-limits are:

  • Past relationships that still have lingering feelings.
  • How many women/men they have been with (especially if their new significant other will be present).
  • Events that are “touchy” subjects for the person.

If all your guests are close friends and family to the roastee, most should know what is off-limits. But it is always a good idea to maybe coordinate the event so that all the guests are there before the guest of honor. This will give a little bit of time for everyone to go over some ground rules about the roast. It will ensure there are no awkward moments when someone says the wrong thing.

Some other great tips for a roasting and using 50th birthday jokes:

You could ask your guests to send you the high points from their notes for the roast, so you can somewhat arrange for a nice flow of speakers.

For those who cannot attend, you can always have them send you something in the mail or by email for the Roastmaster to present in their place.

Have a chair decorated like a throne and have the Roastee sit in it while you all present your stories.

Record! and take pictures!!! This will be a one-of-a-kind event and completely unforgettable. This will be something great to look back on over the years.

Hopefully, these tips will help you throw the best birthday roast possible!!  Enjoy and use these jokes for 50th birthday.
