Going off of a discussion in this week's Drunk Thread: We all have our favorite comedians, and those who we would only find funny if they were running down the street naked with their genitals on fire. The subject of what makes good comedy is 100% subjective, and what you may think is the dumbest, most unfunny bit of retardedness, I can guarantee you that there is a person out there who will defend that exact same bit to the very death. Hell, how else can you explain how those assholes who made those "Epic Movie" pieces of shit were able to not only make money, but not be immediately lynched for crimes against humanity? I kid, but you get my point- there is always someone out there who loves what you absolutely cannot stand. And with comedy, something that only exists to make people forget about their anger and their problems and is meant solely to lighten the mood, I find it funny that watching certain acts can inspire such a wide range from happiness to vitriol. I'm not above this myself- I can't for the life of me figure out how a vast number of people are blown away by the late Bill Hicks. I honestly do not find him funny AT ALL. Not even a little bit. People hail him as an icon and one of the best comedians of all time, and all I see is an unfunny asshole who spews hate and negativity and looks down on those who are so unenlightened as to not be a total dick as he is. It's not even the fact that he is an asshole that really turns me off- Hell, I think George Carlin accomplishes the same act brilliantly. At least George is the lovable asshole. This guy has no redeeming qualities to speak of, yet he's the one I want to go to as a source of cheer? Fuck that dude. Some more comedians who I personally can't stand: Lisa Lampanelli (Lets be as gross as possible as see how many black dicks I can fit in my nose! That's funny!) and Wanda Sykes (Ooooo, look how sassy I am! Yall be trippin'!), black comedians who base their entire act on the difference between white people and black people (Did you know that white people can't dance? DAT'S CRAY-ZEE!), and the Blue Collar guys (except for Ron White and Rodney Carrington, who I actually love). Yet as much as I hate these people, there are literally thousands and thousands of people out there who are just blown away by the very same bits that I find repulsive. To each his own, I guess, but I still reserve the right to judge you. I'm pretty fair like that. Focus: Tell us your favorite comedian, but also what it is that you appreciate about them. Don't just list a youtube of them and let it go at that, because material that you may think speaks for itself, there are those here who may think that very same clip is a reason that said comedian is terrible. Alt Focus: On the flip side, talk about the comedians who you can't stand, but also why it is that you can't stand them. I know that with both of these, the odds of you changing anyone's minds are about the same as the are for me growing another dick out of my elbow, but the spirit of debate is what makes these threads enjoyable.
