I love to laugh. I love people who make me laugh. I love to make people laugh (although sometimes it's not on purpose, but whatever works, right?). I like to watch funny movies and comedians' stand-up routines.
What I don't like is "blue comedy." That's when someone resorts to foul language and sexual references for the shock value. It's not funny. It's just uncomfortable.
I don't like put-down humor. Have you really paid attention to situation comedies like "Everybody Loves Raymond?" There's a lot of slapstick and silliness. But a lot of the "humor" comes from one person saying how stupid another person is. It's not funny in real life when you are the butt of the joke. Why should we laugh at it on TV?
I like irony. I like word play. I like pictures of cats and dogs with silly captions. I like anything that points out just how hilarious and wonderful the English language is.
This is somebody I think is funny. His name is Ryan Hamilton. Here's where you can find his tour schedule. If he ever comes to your city, go see his show. (And I'm not just saying that because his grandma lives down the street from me.) (No really.)
