Some people seem to have funny bones, and naturally find themselves working in the comedy entertainment business. At the moment, I am discovering the comedy genius of Bea Arthur, who had the ability to say more with one look, than many comedians do with even the most fabulous scripts.
Who amongst the comedians from past or present always has the ability to make you laugh, no matter what they are appearing in?

My favorite all-time comedian is George Carlin. There was no one better.
Children can be the best of all.
A while back my son and family were visiting and someone made a comment I didn't find funny and didn't laugh at. On the way home that night my son and his wife were talking and decided my funny bone must be broken.
Days later, out of the blue, my 7 year old grandson asked if I had ever been in the army. When asked why he wanted to know he wondered aloud, in all seriousness, if that might have been where I had broken my funny bone.
That one I laughed long and hard at!
Agreed on the George Carlin front. Most definitely.
I love Robin Williams - much more so when allowed to be himself rather than having to follow a script, of course!
I liked Bea Arthur as well.She had a dead pan kind of humor.
There are all types of humor and comedians.
serious ones like Lenny Bruce.Richard Pryor, or George Carlin fit one type of audience;those who have a message about social injustices
Slap stick humor was popular that Milton Beryl,Red Buttons and Jim Carry perform.
Betty White has a god sense of humor and pretends to not know that she is funny..
Never heard of Lenny Bruce or George Carlin, I will have to check out Youtube, there's bound to be something on there.
I like Betty White too, the last of the Golden Girls. As Rose, she reminded me so much of my grandmother.

you must be very young! LOL
why not tell other readers something about yourself on the profile page?
where else do you write, what subjects you write about,etc.
I like to tell myself that I am young, although the scientists who have been attempting to carbon date me would no doubt disagree. And I have reached that age when I have to decide whether to try and hide my eye bags or make a feature out of them with a spot of glitter.
Up and comer Bo Burham... he is a VERY good wordsmith. And he understands the essence of words, the power of words, thinking, Comedy and Art.
He mentions Carlin in this snippet:
Bill Cosby - this is my favourite Cosby bit
I would add Bill Hicks. Definitely a messiah among the lesser known comedians.
well i guess Sherlock221b has enough information for a hub! LOL

I have many favorites! A few include, but are not limited to good old George Carlin, the beautiful Eddie Izzard, and I really like Bill Hicks.

Do you feel there is a set of standards or common decency humor should follow?
