Share your joke with Comic Relief

Local comedian Kev F Sutherland is out to break a Guinness world record and he needs your help to do it.

He wants to tell more jokes in one hour than anyone else ever has, all in aid of Comic Relief 2009.

As the countdown begins to this year's Red Nose day on Friday 13 March, 2009, we're collecting jokes for Kev. Have you got one he can use?

The current joke-telling record is held by the Australian comic Anthony Lehmann who told 549 in May 2005.

All this week BBC Radio Bristol has been out and about collecting jokes from listeners across the patch, and the local newspaper, Bristol Evening Post, has been helping too by asking readers to send in their funnies.

If you have a joke you think is suitable for the record attempt, email it to: joke@bbc.co.uk (see terms and conditions below).

Here are a couple of our favourite funnies to get the ball rolling...

• I went to the local video shop and said, 'Can I borrow Batman Forever?' The owner said, 'No, you'll have to bring it back tomorrow.'

• I met the bloke who invented crosswords. Can't remember his name, it's P something T something R.

The record attempt will take place in front of an invited audience at the Barton Hill Settlement in Bristol.

Barton Hill Settlement itself receives funding from Comic Relief to organise multicultural events to help improve and increase social cohesion in the area.

Terms and conditions

1. You can submit as many jokes as you like to be used in our attempt at the world record.

2. Jokes should be original, 'clean', non-offensive, not defamatory and suitable for broadcast and publication in any media.

3. By submitting jokes you give the BBC the right to broadcast and publish them in any media for any purpose throughout the world as it thinks fit.

4. The BBC does not guarantee to use every joke submitted.

5. Jokes can be any length.

6. The BBC may publish the names of the people sending in any of the jokes if it so wishes.
