That dork who walks around with a knit cap on and goofy smile and talks to people - how or why on Earth anyone would consider that even remotely amusing or anything other than idiotic I've no idea

Don Rickles. A truly mean spirited type of "humor"

Dane Cook is lame, really lame after the Boston Strong fiasco.........

I think some of the people mentioned are actors/actresses that take comedy roles, they recite lines/jokes that other people wrote....... Not their own material.

I agree with the people on the radio show, a total "serial killer" voice. His all-too-well known annoying voice is actually more "acceptable"...weird.

Or here is Larry the cable guy before he became Larry the cable guy - Apparently he's not even a redneck? Does Jeff Foxworthy know?
Wow, what a shocker! I never thought I would say this but his current "redneck" image is actually way better than his dorky 80s look!



Another un-funny comedian who seems to be coming up with one special after another is, Mike Epps. I don't see what is funny about his comedy. I even get annoyed when they cast him in movies as the "comedy relief" or in a funny black guy type role.
