My Favorite Comedian

Plinky asked, “Who’s your favorite come­di­an? Is there any­one you can’t stand?”

George Car­lin May 12 1937 — June 22 2008

George Car­lin is the King of Come­di­ans as far as I’m con­cerned. He’s always hilar­i­ous. I love watch­ing old clips and read­ing his books. His death was a huge loss to the world and came far too ear­ly. It cer­tain­ly doesn’t hurt that he shared my lack of respect for reli­gion.

I see no rea­son to name come­di­ans I can’t stand and give them atten­tion, but pure­ly phys­i­cal com­e­dy leaves me cold, as does any­thing that involves pick­ing on mem­bers of the audi­ence.
