NYC Mayoral Candidates, Except Weiner, Tell Their Best Jokes (VIDEO)

New York City mayoral candidates, with the notable exception of Anthony Weiner, recently took enough time off campaigning to showcase their finest comedic chops for The Daily News.

The resulting video reel is a bit awkward, as it's rather unsurprising the candidates aren't exactly the funniest bunch out there. But we applaud the attempts!

As for Weiner, whose latest sexting revelations are proving to be great material for the professionals, the former congressman brushed off the camera saying, "No, I'm not a very jovial guy."

Womp, womp.
