In persuasive or educational speaking, it also is a foundational concept: "Tell 'em what you're going to tell 'em; Tell 'em; Tell 'em what you told 'em" The Rule of Three is also used widely in comedy.Many popular jokes are based on three Stock Characters (e.g. The first two react normally, the third does something ridiculous (but stereotypically in character).

Despite a lifetime of taking crap from others back in New Zealand, kind Steve Rutherford (Rhys Darby) is happy to finally have some company that doesn’t totally ignore him.
He comes to recognize the island as a chance to live the life he’s always dreamed — even if that life means a diet that consists of a lot of wild boar.
