i went to my sister-in-laws house on Sunday and they kept going on and on about how great this one comedian was. i guess they had recorded one of his shows and just had to have us watch it. it definitely wasn't my type of humor. they were laughing hysterically and looking at me like i was crazy cuz i wasn;t laughing. lol! hey different strokes, i guess...


i was just wondering what you think is funny comedy.

My taste in comedy is so messed up. Im the type of person to sit in a room full of people and piss myself laughing whilst everyone else just stares in amazement... which makes it even more funny, so I laugh more.

Erm, I like:
- Harry Hill
- Norman Wisdom
- Jack Dee
- Ricky Gervais

And a whole load of others. But I wont go on, my taste in humour isnt normal.

If you're ever heard his comedy you'd know why. That is one dirty mother ****er. He also probably did more drugs while on Full House than I did during high school... and that's a scary thought.
