Favorite Comedians?

Recommended Posts

Guest Cowboy

I noticed nobody's asked this question before (and if they did i obviously missed itttt) so i figured i would.

I love comedy. a good laugh never hurt now and then. a few of my favorites are Katt Williams, Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis, and Paul Rudd.

So who's your favorite comedian? Who makes you laugh?

I started way back with the earliest of the 'observational comics', Alan King was followed by George Carlin and the art was perfected by Jerry Seinfeld.

I also love political humor so Mark Russel has to make the list but I hate to include Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert because they are newsmen, aren't they?

I like Jeff Dunham especially when he is talking to Walter and for you Colton, I also like Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall.

I have often thought of distributing some of Bill's signs to people at work and a lot of the people that I meet each day.

Love ya,

Sally

I think Jeff Dunham is hilarious. I like most of his characters. Jalapeno on a stick, Walter, and Peanut would be my favorite.

Kids in the Hall were very funny (they had a lot of cross-dressing going on).

Early Steve Martin on Saturday Night Live was laughing so hard, falling down funny.

Early Robin Williams when he would get some riffs really going

There was a group of very funny comedians in the late 60's early 70's that George Carlin was part of, all were the new wave - Robert Klein, David Steinberg, David Brenner.

David Steinberg directed over 30 episodes of Designing Women one of the funniest comedy series on TV. Second only to MTM (how many of those supporting characters went on to actually 'star' in their own series? 6? The three from Seinfeld can only dream)

I love topical humor, like Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Bill Maher. Aren't there any funny conservative comedians? Oh, yeah, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Uh, you mean they're not trying to be funny? Oops.

Oh, one more 'group' - Larry, Daryl, and Daryl. ;) They revived Newhart like the Farkel family revived Laugh-In.

Very few will remember him but I loved his imaginary slide shows.

Love ya'll

Donna Jean?

"What am I?

Chopped Liver?" Henny Yougman

And if so am I losing my value as I lose weight?

I could be funny all the time if I could go to work and sit at my desk logged into the playground and typing jokes out of Captain Willy's Whiz Bang!*

*reference to a song from the Music Man.

It's OK, John - I still love you even if you don't like my jokes..........sniff, sniff............

Love ya,

Sally

One of my faviourites is Lee Evans (he's from my neck of the woods and I don't know if any of you non uk-ers will know of him). My kids are crazy on him too and went through a stage of walking around talking talking in a silly voice like him...I tell ya, it's entertaining for 5 mins but when you live with it for a year...!

Also love Ellen DeGeneres and Francesca Martinez.

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Good morning everyone!❤   Happy Birthday rorylm!🎂 Hope you have a wonderful day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾
    • Charlize
      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize
