"Comedy Can Be Dangerous" is a song featured in the Disney/Pixar animated series Monsters at Work. It is performed by Mike Wazowski, with accompaniment by a monster named Otis on piano, who tells former scarers and new hires that they are making kids laugh. He warns them about the dangers or harm they might cause children if they are not careful, though many of the "concerns" are clearly meant for laughs.

Lyrics

Comedy can be dangerous
My friends, I tell ya what
When you make kids laugh and giggle
They can split a gut

With a chortle they can crack up
So beware there is the chance
You can make a kid laugh so hard
That they can pee their pants

Fall out of bed and hit their head
While rolling on the floor
Their body shake, their side will ache
They'll laugh until they're sore

'Cause the funny bone, the danger zone
And some place no one knows
It could hit that zone hold the phone
'Cause milk shoots out their nose

Kids' body parts are fragile
So be careful not to scoff
Your funny joke can actually make
Their heads and butts fall off

Jokes and gags, hit 'em hard
With punchlines, so I've read
You can leave a kid in stitches
Or even knock 'em dead

Trivia

  • The song is composed of references and metaphors for laughing. For example, When Mike jokes that the kids' "heads and butts fall off", he is referring to the phrases "laugh [my] head off" and "laugh [my] rump off".
