The title card for Comedy Bomb
Dolphin's show

Comedy Bomb is a quest in Mario Party Advance. The title refers to failing spectacularly during a comedy routine, i.e. receiving few, if any, laughs from the audience at any point. It starts when Dolphin asks the player to lend them their ear at Mario Vaudeville. The player can ask them if anything is wrong, which starts the quest, or they can demand to keep their ears, which makes Dolphin annoyed at the player's joke at his expense. Once the quest starts, Dolphin goes on to explain that he needs someone to listen to his routine and laugh at the appropriate moments. He wants the player to attract other people so that he can become more popular and get more gigs. If the player laughs at the wrong moment, or if they fail to laugh at the right moment, they dissuade others from checking out the show. He goes on to tell a story about a cellphone that does not work outside, to which his provider replies, "You should never, EVER, take it outside!" Alongside that is a story about a girl in his class at school who was unable to read the blackboard, and when Dolphin tries to read it out, she exclaims, "Forget the questions! Give me the answers!" Both of these lines must be laughed at for Dolphin to consider his routine a success. If everything pans out, Dolphin is ecstatic about his newly found audience and gains a significant boost in confidence, giving the player the Snow Globe Gaddget to say thanks.

Hello, ladies and germs! Enjoy the show!
So, I bought myself the latest portable phone.
Right off the bat, the thing goes out on me!
So i went back to the dealer and complained.
And so the dealer, he says to me...
"Sir, this phone is a precision instrument."
"You should never, EVER take it outside!"

...Yeah! Woo, Dolphin!

I don't look it, but I was a great student.
Anyway, there was this girl crying in class...
She said "Boo-hoo! My eyes are so bad..."
"that i can't read the chalkboard!"
I read the questions to her, and she cried...
"Forget the questions! Give me the answers!"
Woo, Dolphin! Go, Dolphin!
You've been a great audience! Thank you!
