2. Sideshow Pete on the Street: “Ain’t that a Peach” Gag

Proud to offer up one of our own! It’s #45 from the book “101 Ways to Amuse/Abuse a Bar-Fly.”
If the bar has cloth napkins or bar rag, and bar fruit you can make this one work. It’s all in the delivery. The reaction can vary, so be ready to duck if she take a swing at ya!

3. Bouncer Pee Prank

The next prank is simple to set up but requires a ton of courage. Personally, I wouldn’t have the guts to do this prank, but it’s a good one. But be warned, you’re about to “piss” off a bouncer in a big way.
Set-up is easy and only requires a water bottle.
BE WARNED: Catch one of these gatekeepers on a bad night and you could lose your head!

4. Cocktail Name Prank

Also found on YouTube, we move to the other side of the bar. This one could very easily get you kicked out. That said, proper execution is going to be essential if you plan on staying. Know when enough is enough. Kind of important not piss off your bartender. If you act smooth, make a joke of it, you will nail it and get a ton of laughs in the process!

5. Bar Rodeo

We’d like to end with #66, another one from the book “101 Ways to Amuse/Abuse a Bar-Fly.”
Funniest way I’ve seen it was between a girl and a guy. The guy was totally wasted. Tell me this isn’t funny!


Gags and pranks are meant to be fun. They can be a great way to liven up a night. Many require some preparation, some simply require creativity.
