I am told that I am funny. Not in a stand up comedy kind of way or a “Have you heard the one about…” joke telling kinda way. I’m the guy who breaks the tension with a quick witted quip. I see things many people miss and can quickly verbally post something funny about it. I can also usually find a movie quote to fit any situation. “We’re gonna need a bigger boat” Ok, most situations.
I’m definitely not like most people when it comes to what I think is funny. For instance, I have never laughed at anything Jay Leno has said. Ever. I do not think he’s funny at all. I’m the one guy who doesn’t “Love” Ray Ramono from Everybody Loves Raymond. Can’t stand him. His voice is so annoying. Never, not even for a second, have I ever thought George Lopez was funny. Also add to the list of unfunny, Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Jeff Foxworthy, Joan Rivers, and Rosey O’Donnell. I could go on and on about who I think is not funny, but I wont.
Who and or what do I think is funny? I’m glad you asked. As far as comedians? Ron white, Dane Cook, Dave Chappelle, and Tina Fey all make me laugh.
How about late night hosts Sam? Again, thanks for asking. Conan, Craig Ferguson, and Jimmy Kimmel, again, all make me laugh.
What about Daytime TV you say? Got that covered too. Ellen Degeneres is funny. Even when she’s serious, she’s funny. And what list would be complete with out the Daily Show and the Cobert Report, though mostly the Daily Show. Smart and funny. (Just like I like my women)
For simply laugh out loud humor though, nothing beats the Family Guy. The Simpsons are a very close second. But my favorite show to bust out laughing is a little gem know as Archer. It’s a smart and funny action packed crazy ADULT cartoon about a dysfunctional, arrogant, alcoholic, narcissistic, abusive, and rich Spy with mommy issues, and the group of characters that he works with for the Spy Agency ISIS. (His mother owns the agency.) Season 3, on FX just ended.
