Favorite Comedians?

31 posts in this topic

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.
