We've been rewatching all three of them, for the "nth" time, lately. We just watched Nate last night.

Seems like a lot of people don't care for "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," but Regan and Gaffigan were both on -- Regan twice, I think -- and I think they were some of the best episodes of the series.

Everyone mentioned I have laughed at...but not this one.

Dennis Miller

Obviously, I'm not the only one ...found online:
Holy ****, Has Dennis Miller Ever Actually Told a Joke?
The stand-up comic doesn’t construct jokes, but uses a smokescreen of convoluted allusions.

seinfeld is the first i can think of. His supporting cast made the show.

Kind of like Roseanne. she wasn't funny, but John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf? they saved her ass every time.

I really enjoyed the first cast and guests of "Saturday Night Live." The time and place was right. Same with the cast of "All in the Family" which confirmed everyone's failings and still made us laugh. They may have been the only uniting factor during pretty bad times for us.

Really never enjoyed the old standards. A bunch of cliquey old men. Sorry they were passed off to me as an example of humor in my childhood.

Now comedians have been so hamstrung by political correctness that it has affected the shock value of a lot of types of humor.

George Carlin was fun when his humor was new. I liked the absurdist comedy of Andy Kaufman. Both Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor were funny but it became hard to have any respect for them after they made a mess.

Have you seen "Only Murders In The Building"? I can't convince you to like him lol but I think you will find him more palatable in that. Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez....and many big guest stars. The weird part is I've seen a lot of people here say they don't care for Amy Schumer, which I don't either, but she is one of the guest stars in a couple of episodes of "Murders".

I mentioned somewhere in this thread who I don't find funny, can't remember who I said now lol. I agree with the other posters that most of the comedians these days are painful to watch, or so vulgar it is impossible to watch. One that I used to love was Ron White, but he got really disgusting and gross. He retired I think, he needed to.

Agreed. Him, Katt Williams, and Chris Rock are awful.

Also, Dave Chappelle recently been awful.
