Acting Skills of The Irish
An Irish actor tries to get a part in a play. His agent finally gets him a part but it is only one line - "Hark I hear a cannon."
He practices the line over and over again, tells his parents and friends he has a part "Hark I hear a cannon". When he arrives at the theatre the guard asks who he is. 'I am the one who says "Hark I hear a cannon"'.
The guard lets him in. Then the makeup people also want to know who he is and he says 'I am the one who says "Hark I hear a cannon"'. He eventually gets the cue to go on stage.
The cannon goes off and he says "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?"
