Funny shows

Jerrymac:
This has been itching at me for a long time. Just what do people find funny. I see all these shows that are suppose to be funny. I have tried to sit through some of them just to find there is nothing funny at all just plain stupid.

"The Office" I started watching a couple of times. Gave up in five minutes.

I don't think "Monk" is funny.

I get a lot of chuckles out of "Scrubs" and there are life lessons in that show. All so "Dead Like Me".

"My Name is Earl" is/was funny, I don't watch it anymore. Same with "Two and a Half Men" and "New Adventures of Old Christine". Well old Christine is right on the edge of entertaining funny and stupid. Not enough to keep me going back season after season.

I never ever thought "I Love Lucy" was funny. Even as a child I thought that woman was over acting stupid. On the other hand Red Skelton kept me rolling in the floor.

So what do you find funny?

Red Skelton was great. I still have a bunch of Jack Benny stuff.
I use to listen to Mystery Radio with EG Marshall  I have some of those on tape also.

I surely hope you radiophiles haven't missed this FREE gem on the net

http://www.radiolovers.com/

Hundreds of radio dramas, comedies, musicals, suspense, etc., are all found there WITH all the original commercials (not something NEW thrown in to blow the whole experience)

Funny... Monk is a great one - we all have our compulsions and I think that is what makes him so funny, he has them all - so eventually we see him do ours.

Other shows, I can't help but love South-Park, Family Guy, The Simpson's and American Dad - all smart and talented writers and voices.

I can take or leave King of Queens, even though I like it, I never go out of my way to watch it. Seinfeld reruns are always a good filler of time, more background noise, but still an American classic.  HBO has had a few good ones, best of which I think is/was Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage and the new
the low budget potty mouthed Lucky Louie.

I guess I'm more in to the surreal stuff or macabre like Six Feet Under, Dead zone, Ghost Whisperer stuff. I'll take a good psycho-drama over a comedy most of the time. Hope you all try that web link - treasure trove of comedy there!!!

I still think that Bill Cosby is the funniest person I have ever had the pleasure of listening and watching.  I am a pretty serious person, and it takes something really funny to make me laugh, but when I do..the tears roll down my face.  Thank goodness for waterproof mascara!!!  Great day.  Cindi
