I've always found myself more drawn towards Comedians that were also NTs. George Carlin, Steven Wright, Mitch Hedberg, Lewis Black (sometimes he's good), etc. They seem just miles ahead of non-NTs in Humor to me, and heres the thing, Non-NTs don't like them! Atleast from my experience they don't, every time I recite a Steven Wright joke (with perfect timing of course, not just randomly) around my ST friends I get blank stares and then I have to proceed to butcher the joke by explaining it, then all I get is "Ohhhhh.." and no laughter .
Hey now, I LOVE Steven Wright! And a lot of Carlin stuff too.
Icant stand comedians who just sit and complain about life. If I wanted to hear that I would just talk to people in general.
Some comedians I think are genuinely funny are Rodney Dangerfeild, Wendy Leibman, and Harland Williams. I love quick clever comedy.
I was so happy when I discovered Mitch Hedberg...and so not happy when I found out he died.
Besides him, there aren't any comedians I'm exclusively devoted to (I don't watch a ton of standup, though). I like bits and pieces of various comedians' bits. One thing that comes to mind is that whole "hot pocket" thing by Jim Gaffigan. I've also been watching a lot of Craig Ferguson lately, moreso than Conan. It's so funny watching someone with a late night show going off-topic every 5 seconds since they usually seem more structured.
I like all the comics you mentioned with the exception of George Carlin, especially Mitch Hedberg and Lewis Black. I also like Chris Rock, but not Dane Cook. I think Chris Rock is going to come after you for lumping him in with Cook
If these are NT comedians, I'm on board. I also like Robert Schimmel and Dennis Miller (really) and they're probably both NTs.
Agreed on all counts!

Also agree here. I don't see Black being NT. I could see how he'd be perceived that way, though.
I love Mitch Hedberg. So sad he died. What type do y'all think he was?
I'm a huge fan of standup, and it doesn't have to be NTish to be funny, but I do like offbeat, cerebral stuff. Another couple of comedians I like are Mike Birbiglia mike birbiglia - Google Video
