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 :(.

I also find myself hating on non-NT comedians, they're not funny! People like Chris Rock and Dane Cook just aren't funny to me (they're STs right?), Dane Cook annoys the hell out of me actually. I need comedy that is clever and makes me think alot, and I find myself only getting that from NTs.

Your thoughts?

To be fair, I don't think Dane Cook is funny to anyone. I personally enjoy the comedy styles of both George Carlin and Lewis Black, and I am also not a fan of Chris Rock. But who else is a non-NT comedian? Actually, who else is an NT comedian?

George Carlin, Mitch Hedberg, David Cross, Kat Williams, Wanda Sykes, Dave Chapelle, Louis C.K., those are some comics that I love.

Stephen Colbert is one that I like. ^^I find Kat Williams to be funny sometimes, though not always because of what he is saying, but more just from his general demeanor.

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.

Hedberg's dead too, but Jeni went out in an awful way.

I didn't necessarily Lump him together with Dane Cook, I just said that he's an ST comedian, do you guys agree that he's an ST comedian? Some of his stuff is pretty good, just leagues behind Steven Wright, and if you saw Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars" you'll see how when an S does an N's jokes and a N does an S's jokes it just doesn't work out.

I actually saw Chris Rock perform, and he's okay, he's a great performer, and kind of funny, but he's not exactly my cup of comedic tea.

Ya, the problem is that he lacks consistency and sometimes seems a bit contrived.
