I had never heard of this man,before my husband (he with the warped sence oh humour)bought tickets for his recent Perth show.

For two hours I laughed so much my sides ached.

Steven Wright has been popular for many years - began in Boston, a university town, and his humour is extremely cerebral and unique. Word games and logic games. I can't think of any of his 'jokes' because he doesn't tell jokes - he makes observations.

I have seen both these comics live and must admit found them both very funny.

Different humour of course.

Chubby is very well I felt bad for laughing at his very well if you have heard of him you know his humour.

Ross Noble is also a very good comedian.

But yes Jerry had a laugh at sSteve's post.

Did you know Steven Wright won an Oscar in the past for a short film I believe but can not swear to it.

No, don't know Chubby Brown or others that have been mentioned.

Dave Chappelle was the hottest thing this year on cable TV's Comedy Central, also very, very, bad (according to white folks taste) funny, but he has some charisma that over-rides his bad taste. The news here is that he's fled to SOUTH AFRICA for some reason, rather than collect $50 million in cable TV money to produce more comedy shows.


Blue humor is often not effective unless it's perceived as -- yeah, that's true isn't it? Just cheap shots at easy targets is too often the goal of blue comics.
