    Betty White - while not technically a stand up comedienne she is hilarious in all that she does.

    John Oliver may become one of my favorites, but I need more than Last Week Tonight to judge that (especially since he only had a small part in The Daily Show).

    John Oliver is great. Jessica Williams is too. I'd like to see more of her. I was kind of hoping she'd inherit The Daily Show.

    I hate stand-up comedians. All these people do is find ways to get cheap laughs from making fun of other people, races, sexes, tragedies, or basic attributes of human nature and the human condition. We shouldn't be making light of any of these things. We need to be taking all this stuff more seriously, and having serious discussions about them if we ever want things to improve. Laughing at something never did any good, and people need to realize that everything is life isn't a big joke - in fact, nothing is.

    George Carlin was serious about many things. Such as when he was discussing rights, and proposed they aren't rights, but a list of privileges that are getting shorter, and they aren't rights because someone can just take them away, which he used the American Japanese internment camps as an example, stating that American citizens who needed their rights the most had no rights except "right this way to the internment camps."
    John Oliver has a comedy news show, and even though it's focus is comedy he discusses some very serious issues in a very serious way. And even those who watch the Daily Show, a comedy show, are more aware of and informed of global current events than those who watch Fox News, a channel that toots its own horn about it having good unbiased news.

    Comedy has been effectively used, for many reasons, for many ends. People love to laugh, and you can find comedy every where, and often for many of the same reasons such as laughing at normal things happening in unusual situations, a means of ridiculing politicians, as a means of coping and getting over things, and even just because some people have a knack for making others laugh.

    Get a sense of humor. You have to laugh in order to get through this ****ty thing we call "life". It would be better if we didn't take most things as seriously and just laughed at the ridiculousness of it all - and it is ridiculous.
