Amen to that! A truly great comedian with great timing was the late Alan King. I would also like to add the great ones such as George Kirby and Myron Cohen!

Being in the U.K. I don't know them, but if they are blessed with a true comedy ability I wish them every success - and they will have it!
Society seems to have lost its sense of discrimination. Re the sex angle, it is not the 'sex', or 'profanity', that are funny, it is the way in which they are presented. And to a comic writer, that's the hard bit!
It has to be studied/worked at!
