    I have no idea what Gaffigan is but as a guess, some kind of NT. His off-the-cuff remarks are even more funny than his stand-up routines!

    Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie together are brilliant. I don't know if they are NT, but in the early 1990s they did an adaptation of some of P.G Wodehouse's stories that is amazing.

    Gabriel Iglesias is the funniest man I have ever seen or. Any anecdote or joke of his always has me rolling on the floor laughing. Brian Regan comes in as a close second.

    These guys are phenomenal too. "Jeeves & Wooster" ranks among the best British series I've ever seen, and "A Bit of Frye and Laurie," while not always immediately hilarious, still has great moments as well, like this one:

    Fry and Laurie have always struck me as NTs, but I've also heard Fry typed as ENFP. I always thought he was ENTP.

    David Mitchell seems a bit INTP to me, too. (That Mitchell and Webb Look)

    Any ideas for French & Saunders' types? I'd be curious. Love those two.

    I'm not really as knowledgeable on various comics as I'd like to be, but overall I find more humor in that sort of dry delivery, sarcastic, analytical brand of humor typically common amongst NTs.



    That being said, with the mention of Carlin, I always thought of him as an ENTP.

    Louis CK
    George Carlin
    Mitch Hedberg
    Bill Hicks
    Doug Stanhope
    Joe Rogan
    Jim Norton
    Ricky Gervais

    Louis CK is probably the funniest comedian working right now. Anyone want to guess his type? I'd say INxP, maybe J.

    If these are NT comedians, I'm on board. I also like Robert Schimmel and Dennis Miller (really) and they're probably both NTs.
    How does someone not like George Carlin? He's the closest thing to being objectively funny, unless you're religious or something.

    Early Carlin was okay, but I mostly find his style kind of exhausting and not as funny as I expect him to be.

    I'm a huge standup fan.

    And David Cross, you guys fans?

    He's an NT, I think.
    There is NO WAY that guy is not an NT.

    I love me some Paul F Tompkins. Ideas on type for him? He's definitely F, and I think he's an introvert, because he'll chat with you after shows, but he seems a bit shy, like he's having to make himself interact with people. :-)
    What makes you say F? I guess I'm not really arguing he's definitely a T, but based on the Pod F Tompkast (it's free on iTunes and hilarious), the Comedy Death Ray podcasts (free and hilarious), Doug Loves Movies (f & h) and various others he's been on (he's ALL OVER Podcasts) Tompkins seems ENTP to me. One of my very favorite comedians. He's spectacular.

    Both Cross and Tompkins worked on Mr. Show With Bob and David, if you guys ever saw that. One of the funniest shows ever.

    Other amazing comedians who haven't been mentioned (of course, I love Chappelle and Louis C.K. and Carlin and Hedberg, among others):

    Kyle Kinane. Probably most of you don't know this guy, but he is a SPECTACULAR newcomer in the comedy circuit.

    This thread wants for a Bill Hicks reference (or not, I may have missed it)

    Zach Galifianakis, though he tragically has drifted from his stand-up roots.

    Nick Kroll is really great (though his recent special is only good not great, he's pretty amazing on those Podcasts)

    Bret Gelman is funny, but I haven't seen his stand-up work. He's kinda bizarre.

    Aziz Ansari is really funny.

    Scott Aukerman, who hosts Comedy Death Ray and also worked on Mr. Show, is pretty funny.

    Anthony Jeselnik is also pretty funny, my only complaint being I prefer bits to his sort of very quick joke style (Hedberg style)

    Eugene Mirman is a bizarre but great comic.

    Doug Benson is pretty funny, but like Kroll I tend to like his casual conversation to his actual act, which is still pretty enjoyable.

    And in non-stand up, I am currently in love with the shows Archer and Community (and, of course, Arrested Development), and always love the writing of John Hodgman.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?
