Who’s Your Favourite Stand-Up Comedian?

My best friend consumes sitcoms and stand-up comedy shows like a wildfire. And generous as he is, he wouldn’t be content if he’s alone enjoying all the fun. He would soon zealously promote his newest finds, play the show’s youtube or downloaded videos or MP3 and beg for my attention.

He devours any material that promises mirth but he doesn’t enjoy racism-anchored humor (Russell Peters). He prefers and is greatly pleased with Mitch Hedberg’s unorthodox comedy – though he admitted that Mitch’s style of humor and delivery was not that easy to grasp. If you haven’t heard of Mitch, check out some of his popular punchlines:

Mitch Hedberg

  • I’m against picketing but I don’t know how to show it.
  • I haven’t slept for 10 days because that would be too long.
  • I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too.
  • My roommate said to me, ‘I’m gonna go shave and use the shower; does anyone need to use the bathroom?’ It’s like some weird ass quiz where he reveals the answer first.

The last one doesn’t require you to be a grammarian to decipher the humor. Some people might find Mitch’s style a real headache ie. those who don’t like to think much to understand a joke.

If you are the type of audience who prefer to get a good laugh effortlessly, Louis C.K. may offer you the comic relief.

  • Boys fuck things up; Girls are fucked up. Do you see the difference? Like, a man will cut your arm off and throw it in a river, but he’ll leave you as a human being intact. He won’t fuck with who you are. Women are nonviolent, but they will shit inside of your heart.”
  • I don’t stop eating when I’m full. The meal is not over when I’m full. The meal is over when I hate myself.

The man just picks any terrible thing and tells a hilarious anecdote about it. People laugh. He wins. These texts are dead if you don’t hear and see him perform. When you’re tired crying over your favourite soap opera, try some comic relief through the funniest people you know.

We’ll all die soon. We all deserve a good laugh.
