    Default Favourite Comedian

    I just wondered who are your favourite stand-up comedians, and also what personality types you think they might be?

    My personal favourite is Bill Hicks (R.I.P.). Not only was the guy extremely funny, he also was interested in big issues of the day (e.g. Gulf War) and questioned society's attitude toward sex, religion, abortion etc. I'm hoping and praying he's an INTJ!

    Other favourites are Chris Rock (keeping it real.....real dumb), Steven Wright (clever use of language) and Peter Kay (family entertainer, harks back to things I remember as a child).

    Seinfeld makes me laugh so hard I cry - and I'm not an easy one to crack up. It's dry, observational humour. For a good example of his work, try "I'm telling you for the last time," on DVD. He's prob an NF, but I'm not capable of getting more specific at the moment. Need food in me to get the brain working.

    I adore Curb Your Enthusiasm with Larry David (the guy who wrote Seinfeld). I am convinced that he's an INTJ

    ps. I also like his stand-up stuff, such as the sketch about how although he is a Jew, he respects Hitler for not taking any shit off magicians.

    I didn't realize that. I thought Seinfeld wrote Seinfeld.

    David was the head writer (for the first seven seasons), so I believe he had the final say on what went in. And he wrote a s***load of episodes.

    Definitely Bill Hicks.
    It's possible that Hicks was an INTJ, but my best bet...INFJ...sorry
    Reasons : he made a lot of pleas for a more compassionate world and he was clearly an idealist.

    I agree. He was very compassionate, although he didn't really show much compassion for idiots. Let's call him INxJ and be done with it
