Woof! If you're not the most sarcastic dame I ever met, your standards are so low they could use you at the Annual Gomorrah Saucy Limbo Competition. As the bar!

Billy Knight is a street comedian living on the Strip in 2281. He stands outside of The Tops Casino, next to a gate dividing The Strip.

BackgroundEdit

Billy Knight is a longtime professional comedian who has clearly fallen on hard times. His act are made up of sardonic one-liners and observations about life and various personalities in New Vegas. It is implied that he was once a well-known comic, but his desperation causes him to sharply question his worth to a club.

NotesEdit

  • If recruited for Torini, Billy performs his act at The Aces nightly between 4:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M.
  • If you listen to all of his jokes, he will make a crack about being served human meat at the Ultra-luxe, foreshadowing a quest with them. The Joke is somewhat similar to the cannibalism joke that the robot butlers tell in Fallout 3.
  • The Tops sign bills him as the "King of Zing!"
  • During the course of his routine, Billy will make a joke about Tops owner Benny paying his salary; Billy will make this joke even if Benny is dead or has fled The Strip while other non-player characters in the theater are talking about the mobster's recent disgrace.
  • Billy may also make a joke about Benny paying his salary even if he is still working on the street.

List of jokesEdit

  • "I had dinner at the Ultra-Luxe the other night. I told them my steak tasted funny. They said it was a clown. I ate a person!"
  • "Hey, what about that suit Benny wears? If I had a suit like that, the ladies would be all over me. What, you expect a punchline? The guy pays my salary!"
  • "It's hard to sleep in this place, I tell ya; this girl was pounding on my door all night, finally I had to let her out."
  • "I've been in love with the same woman for 17 years. If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me!
  • "A ghoul goes into a doctor and says, 'Doctor, doctor I have this horrible rash!', The doctor says 'Son, that's called your face!'"
  • "It's great to be here at the Tops, folks. The room I'm in has a lovely little closet. A nail."
  • "I take my wife everywhere, but somehow she keeps finding her way back."
  • "I try to be frank and earnest with women. In New Reno, I'm Frank and in the Boneyard I'm Ernest."
  • "I've been married for 17 years. Where did I go wrong?"
  • "So I hear Mr. House runs the Strip. He took it over from the last guy, Mr. Mob-Infested Hellhole."
  • "I love these robots with the friendly little policeman's faces. Sure, they still rough you up, but they look so happy!"
  • "My wife and I know the secret to a happy marriage. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant. She goes Mondays, I go Fridays."
  • "People say it's hard to survive the Wasteland - hey, how hard can it be, the water glows in the dark!"
  • "My hotel room is so small, when I put the key in the lock, I broke the window!"
  • "I hear James Garret drove 5,000 head of Brahmin to New Reno. No bodies, just the heads."
  • "I bought my wife a little car here in New Vegas. An Omerta. It has a hood under the hood."
  • "I know a guy, his motto is Love Thy Neighbor. He lives next to a brothel."
  • "They really care about your privacy here at the Tops. Even room service has an unlisted number!"
  • "I told my wife she's good-looking for a ghoul. It's just too bad she's not a ghoul."
  • "My cousin and his wife are a fastidious couple, he's fast and she's hideous."
