You could start with a search on YouTube.

As with anything, it depends on your definition of 'folk'.
For modern(ish) comic songs, try anything by Tom Lehrer, Max Boyce, Flanders & Swann, Jeremy Taylor, Paddy Roberts, and others.

Cheers
Nigel

You could start with Dr. Dementlo's "Demented Music Data Base"...and then its truncated tree for Lehrer, Zappa, Silverstein and other greats.

Amongst some classics in the list are:

Davy's Dinghy

Harry's Jockstrap - by Dickie Goodman

I Like Bananas Because They Have No Bones

Transfusion - Nervous Norvus

Eat It - "Weird Al" Yankovic

Fish Heads - Barnes & Barnes

Masochism Tango - Tom Lehrer

They Don't Wear Pants in the Southern Part of France

May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose

Leader Of The Laundromat - The Detergents

Moose Turd Pie - Utah Phillips

Pull My Finger - Happy Schnapps Combo

My Ding-A-Ling

Hundreds upon hundreds, and hundreds more, are listed and most are you-tubed.

But it all depends on your sense of humour. There are plenty of terrible "nudge-nudge" unfunny songs...
