If you want to know what the word ‘corny’ really means, then take a look at this article from the Daily Telegraph (a broadsheet newspaper).   It is about a famous British comedian Tommy Cooper.  He is credited with 13 of the top 50 best English jokes of all time.  You might recognise some of the jokes from class.

And as for funny sketches, the 1970s comedy troupe, Monty Python, have also written some classic ones.  In this one, The Argument Clinic, you might recognise the comedian, John Cleese.  It’s about a man who wants to pay for an argument but he isn’t happy with the argument he has.  The sketch continues and becomes even stranger.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand what is happening – the comedy is fairly surreal!
