I remember listening to George Carlin’s Class Clown and Steve Martin’s Let’s Get Small albums with my Cousins in Pepper Pike, OH., in 1979. It was a day or 2 before my 16th birthday and I recall having to keep an ear for any possibly-approaching (and unwanted) adult supervision when Carlin was on, since none of us wanted them to have a tarnished image of our glorious Christian souls(LOL), and when the last track, Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television, was playing it was imperative. I love comedy and there are so many who immediately come to mind, including George. Steve is great and a heckuva banjo player, too just not in the top of my personal favorites if I were to list them. Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Norm Macdonald, Jim Jefferies, Lewis Black, Jim Carrey, Chris’s Rock and Farley, Sam Kinison, Dave Chappelle, and Bill’s Hicks and Burr are all hilarious. I love Billy Connolly, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Bob Nerwhart. I think Mitch Hedberg was my personal favorite, all-time, if I was to pick based on their stand-up show only. He was amazing, and taken way to soon… But I think Robin Williams has to take top prize to answer this, since he was an incredibly gifted actor, as well a genius stand-up performer. He was a Kindred Spirit and his absence from this realm is truly tragic and achingly-sad. Depression has had it’s way with me recently and Robin was suffering horribly at the time we lost him. Sorry if I went too far.
