This humorous story about Glen Campbell was shared by songwriter/singer Jerry Fuller. It took place when both Glen and Jerry were working together on one of many sessions for Rick Nelson in a Capitol Records recording studio in L.A.
I remember every time we'd get to do some background vocals; Glen would have a new stack of jokes to tell. Of course, the microphone is on and sometimes Ricky (Nelson) would sing the bass part with us. [Well one time] we were all crowded around the microphone when Glen tells this particularly dirty joke. We then heard the talk back button go down, and Harriet says, 'That's a nice one Glen, you got another one?' Rick just said, 'Well, that's my mom'. --as told by Jerry Fuller

Jerry Fuller, after sharing this story, then explained that Rick's mom would sometimes sit in on sessions when waiting for Rick's dad,/her husband, Ozzie Nelson (a band leader, actor, director, and producer).

Great Billstown joke, Randy!! I haven't heard this one for years! Thanks!
A few of these humorous stories/jokes as Glen told them may not sound as funny when written down. Why? You nailed it...Glen could just walk out on stage, tell a corny story or joke and his audience loved it, loved him, laughed, because Glen was smiling and having fun telling the jokes. He would also laugh at his own jokes after he told them., did you notice this, too?

Here's one...see if you get it right away. It had me "stumped." lol

Good stuff Dee. As I've said before , Glen could tell this stuff and people loved it. Most people can't. In fact Glen could just walk out on the stage and smile and he was loved. That is very special , and I know, I saw it many times.

Another he told that I liked, was "The road going out to where we lived, was so narrow, that they had to widen it , before they could put a white line down the middle of it" :D

We are now on PAGE 2 of Campbell Comedy--quips (usually one liners but not always) and jokes! (You can click the page arrows located at the upper right corner or lower right corner of this web page to move from page to page in this topic, just as you would with a Kindle or tablet.)

Feel free to post funny lines or jokes you heard told by Glen Campbell over the years. We would love to read them!

Remember the Roger Miller book of jokes that Glen used to keep (he literally wrote down the Miller jokes he loved and wanted to remember/use) but lost at some point? Well, we are re-creating this "book" right here on Glen Campbell Forums, keeping the humor of Roger Miller and Glen Campbell on record, hopefully to never be forgotten and always to be enjoyed. ~Dee

With apologies to Cowpoke, we post these next two Campbell jokes, one of which was posted by/for Cowpoke earlier. The two jokes go well together as told by GC.
