    Default Best comedians

    It comes with no surprise that the most common comedians are ENTPs.

    Traits of a comedian: Non-dignified, insensitive, ingenious use of analogies, cerebrally quick, endless ideas to explore.
    Whether these traits are morally detestable, it works as its own stage persona. Even non-ENTP comedians project themselves as ENTPs. As an ENFP writing my own standup material, the biggest task for myself is to renounce my conscience. I still have a rather small fear of being judged, if not for what I'm saying, then by my performance and delivery. ENTPs simply don't care.

    I do think other types are good comedians, but sans training ENTPs steal the show.

    Anyone else write comedy?
    And do you think specific enneagram types are predisposed to creative humour?

    I still have the mind of George Carlin being ISTP, undoubtedly the greatest stand up comic of all time... Dave Chappelle being a close second, another I suspect to be ISTP with a solid ENTP persona built up.

    But yeah, I agree, the ENTP stage persona is highly desirable in the realm of comedy.

    I agree, ENTPs seem to make the best comedians.

    Enneagram wise, I'd say 7w6 or 6w7.

    I'm not a fan of either of their work, but I do think they are clever in their own way. I had no idea Dave would be an ISTP but I came across one of his interviews and I think I can agree. He uses introverted Thinking.

    I think Dane Cook is ESTP and Chris Rock might be ESFP.

    My favourites have always been Steven Colbert and Sarah Silverman styles. Dry, harsh... love it and want it.

    There's no beating around the bush. He simply tears through flesh and keeps going. He fits the entp archetype. He's what Tony Stark would look like as a comedian. Give me his powers.

    I like that Carlin and Chappelle both have seriously deep currents running through their sets, it's like they use their platform as a voice to inform as well as a medium to entertain. Stephen Colbert is the same, coincidentally another comedian I treasure.

    I think Silverman is a variant of NF and the other two, Dane Cook and Chris Rock, to be... perhaps sorts of Ne types. It's hard to tell, because I really don't like going off stage persona, but I can't find anything where they're not in character. Maybe that is their true selves?

    He was pretty damn cool.



    Louis CK is awesome. He's usually typed as an INFP.

    My knowledge of and interest in comedians is fairly limited, but I do find the aged Stewart Lee pretty good.

    I was just naming comedians of other types but I'm no fan of him either lol.

    Since we're listing comedians... I forgot to name Anthony Jesselnick. He is totally underrated and one BAD MOTHERFUCKER ENTP.

    Plus he's a babe.
