R12 I’ve despised Jimmy from day one and find it shocking that his show has any audience whatsoever. This interview from Sunday was the nail in the coffin, what a smug, humorous-less twat he is, I’m surprised his SNL cast mates did rise up and kill him for his attitude of clean humor and how he can’t even say shit and fuck in a routine. Being subversive is foundational in humor, he might as well of just gone off and hosted Nickelodeon kids games shows with infantile and weak sense of humor.

Beyond having no ability at humor and weirdly obsessed with his huge family and their situational comedy situations that apply to absolutely no one else, Jim Gaffigan is physically revolting and it’s painful to look at him and his voice is excruciating. He should play Alex Murdaugh in the Murdaugh Murders series, he has so much in common with him and I wouldn’t put it past him to someday become a family annihilator too, rather then let his children leave the family and threaten his source material for jokes.

R49 I just started rewatching Seinfeld on Netflix and I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. I started with season 2 and I watch at 1.25 speed, which puts it more at a clip with contemporary sitcoms with absolutely no distortion whatsoever. What I have a problem with is the picture quality, which is grainy and aged, as if it was filmed on those old kinescopes that they used to capture early TV shows. It’s as if they were VHS transfers from someone’s personal home collection. I can’t believe they didn’t clean it up digitally and make it more presentable. Is there some reason the quality is so low?

[quote] "Wanda Sykes, Paula Poundstone, Jeanene Garofolo"

I can see how one might think Poundstone, and even Garofolo aren't funny, R93. But not Wanda Sykes. She's hilarious.

[quote] "Conan O'Brien."

I disagree, R94. As a formerly insecure nerd, I adore him. I find his self-deprecating humor endearing. There's a juvenile quality that turns off a lot of people, and I understand. But he balances that with a genuinely curious, intelligent point of view. And that really is who he is as a person. At least, I have no reason to doubt it, after having watched decades of interviews. My favorite Conan stuff was on his NBC show in the 1990s.

Katt Williams really is hilarious. Milton Berle was never funny. But I enjoy Imogene Coca & Sid Caeser. And "Seinfeld" was definitely only funny because of Larry David, and the cast around Jerry. It's a shame the immediate supporting cast didn't get a bigger payout after. They more than deserved it.

His comedy was not nearly as safe as it had to be for the Tonight show.

I like Robin Williams in small doses. I liked some of his standup specials though I remember one where he got the audience off-side and then was desperate to win them back. But his appearance on Inside the Actors Studio was him at his worst. He had a Beautiful Mind type brain but with a relentless motor like Mel Brooks.

I never got Robin Williams. What were they all convulsed with laughter about? He was fine as a dramatic or light-comic actor in Jack Lemmon-type roles in movies. But his manic riffs and comedy just didn't reach me. Martin Lawrence? Nothing, for me. Eddie Murphy? Did not get what all the fuss was about. Or John Belusihi. And Ben Stiller...his parents were funny. What the appeal is of him, I don't know, I'm baffled. Seriously unfunny.

Johnny Carson was unobjectionable and charming but he was not exactly hilarious, to me, either. I remember friends saying they would "stay up for the monologue." It was okay, but nothing I couldn't skip.

Jessica Hahn was the original "Pick-me girl"; someone willing to do absolutely anything for male attention and validation, including acting like a complete whore.

Funnily enough, it's the standup segments that Seinfeld producers chose to intersperse into Seinfeld scenes during the first season of Seinfeld that cemented my opinion Jerry Seinfeld is not funny at all.

Something about his sensibility has to be funny, but Curb Your Enthusiasm makes it clear that 90 percent of what makes Seinfeld funny to me was Larry David's sensibility, and 0 percent of the standup I've seen Seinfeld do is funny to me.

Ricky Gervais is an unfunny piece of fat envy-driven shit and his writing is crap. I kept waiting for someone to punch him at that last awards show, but it's probably better that they simply ignored him altogether.

Andrew Dice Clay was (thank God) an unimaginative smear of engine grease.

Howard Stern is grotesque.

In terms of stand-up Rosie O'Donnell and Roseanne were both overrated, although they can be effective as actresses.

Jerry Seinfeld is so unfunny it is almost surreal. He's also a class-A asshole in real life.

Bob Hope seemed likable, but if there were two laughs to be had in his whole career I never found either of them.

Gallagher is a cunt.

I am unsure how Carrot Top ever had a second appearance on stage.

The Three Stooges and Abbott & Costello were too vicious to be funny. Laurel and Hardy worked because at the end of the day they seemed to like each other. I thought it was amusing to learn that they created their comic personas by imitating each other. Laurel was uptight and prissy and Hardy was a genial buffoon in real life.

I am swimming against the tide, but Larry David makes my flesh crawl. The smug, moneyed nihilism of it all. Ugh.

I adore Whoopi's '80s stand-up, think Sandra Bernhardt was fascinating, liked The Young Ones and Monty Python and will always laugh at two things: the beer-drinking scene in National Lampoon's Vacation (Anthony Michael Hall was one of the comic greats of his age) and the play of the rude mechanicals in A Midsummer Night's Dream (it doesn't matter who stages it, it always makes me laugh, in part because even if the staging is shit, it's supposed to be shit - maybe the most critic-proof sequence in the history of theater).

I hesitate to unilaterally declare that somebody is not funny.

There are many comic performers I don't particularly enjoy, but obviously there are people out there who do, so they're funny to somebody, just not to me.

Having said that, it seems that the internet consensus is that Brendan Schaub (former semi-successful MMA hottie fighter turned very successful podcaster turned stand-up comedian) may be the worst comic working today. And this comes not just from comedy fans, but from comedians themselves. Many are afraid to say it out loud, because Schaub is so tight with Joe Rogan, who wields a lot of power both in comedy and media. Rogan is the one who convinced Schaub he had what it takes to be a comic, so to criticize Schaub is a bit of a slap in the face to Rogan. But the reactions on comedy podcasts when Schaub's name is brought up is always hilarious, with a lot of subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) shade.

American here and I'm watching the new season of Great British Menu. There is a judge named Ed Gamble who is supposedly a comedian. He is not funny at all. He comes across as juvenile and his "humor" falls flat. But fellow Tom Kerridge laughs like he's busting his sides when Ed makes a joke. You can tell another judge, Nisha Kitona, doesn't think he's all that funny. Jane Harrocks, who played Bubble on Absolutely Fabulous, was a guest judge and you could tell she didn't think Ed was funny either. I don't get why they put him on the show.

I haven't seen the 2022 season, but apparently Ed was a judge on that, too. I still enjoy the show, but I'd enjoy it more without him.
