He's one of my favorites. No cursing, no blatant political jabs. His expressions alone are hilarious!

There was a time when I thought "clean" comedians were boring/wimpy. I'm the opposite now and appreciate comedy without the vulgarity. I watch a lot of random stand up comedy videos on Youtube, and the moment the F-bombs start dropping, I'm out.

Dry Bar based out of Provo, Utah, has a "clean" policy and most of the comedians that play there are really good.

Agreed. The shock value of vulgarity wore thin.

Will Smith. I cannot watch any movie with him in it, I have never seen Independence Day because of him.

This +1. A lot of them seem to think sexually explicit jokes are hilarious simply for being sexually explicit. Most of the jokes told by female comics would get a man fired if he told that same joke at work.

I understand why; I was a teenager at one time too and thought potty jokes and sex jokes were the bomb. Then I grew up.

More stupid than funny, but I think some guys watched it for the "healthy" scantily clad women, others watched for the music.

99% of standups are not funny. They all vulgar at some point. Not funny. Seinfeld an exception.

I find Martin Short to be mostly not funny. I feel awkward for him when I see him on TV.

Way WAY back in the day, when he was on SNL, I thought he was funny...but not so much anymore.

...And half the jokes men tell would get them fired at work. And 80% of the behavior on TV shows could get you fired at work. That's not the point. Jim Gaffigan is mostly a clean comic and I wouldn't say some of his bits at work either.

Jerry Seinfeld, as an example, isn't super super funny to me. I like his comedy, I appreciate why other people like it, but it isn't my favorite in the world. His comedy worked into sitcom format is hilarious. I really like "Comedians in Cars." His Netflix special? Eh. Funny. Not side splitting.
