    Smile I'd got it in / as they rightly should

    Hello. I don't quite understand these underlined two phrases in the context below.
    Please help me. Thank you.

    (The speaker talked to the audience a funny joke on the stage.
    There was a problem during the school play, and the speaker has to fill in till the crisis was over.)

    It's my favorite joke of the moment, and I'd got it in.
    Hooray! The audience loved it, as they rightly should.

    If you "get something in" in a conversation or a speech, it simply means that you included it. This person is very happy that they successfully managed to include their favourite joke when speaking to the audience. By the way, we "tell a joke" not "talk a joke".

    Hooray! The audience loved it, as they rightly should.
    As this is the speaker's favourite joke, he obviously thinks it's funny and believes that everyone else should love it as much as he does. So he is saying that it is only right that the audience loved it.
    See above.
