Label = Lover of Comedy
31 Days in My [Insert Label Here] Skin:
[ Lover of Comedy ]
Oftentimes I get tortured by my always-deep-thinking mind and I just want a good laugh. This past weekend, for example, I spent a few days with some very dear friends of mine and we talked SUUUUUPER deep and vulnerably for hours and hours on end. Which I absolutely adored. But then we needed to lighten things up a bit– so we sat around the breakfast table and listened to some good, clean comedy and just laughed with each other for awhile.
I love the art of stand-up comedy. I think it is a brilliant endeavor. But so many comedians all too often rely on being vulgar, dirty, or using exceptionally foul language during their act to get a cheap laugh. So when I come across a comedian who is both hilarious and “clean” I feel very appreciative.
Here are a few of the consistently clean (and uber talented) comedians I love:
- Brian Regan
- Jim Gaffigan
- John Mulaney
- Henry Cho
- Tim Hawkins
- Studio C (a sketch comedy group with their own YouTube channel– the kids and hubby and I watch this together a lot)
Today, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite bits from some of their shows:
This is just a handful of what I might click on to help me break out of me stuck-in-deep-thought mind from time to time. [And FYI if you didn’t already know this: You can type in a comedian’s name (i.e. “Jim Gaffigan”) on Pandora and it will create a station that includes that comic plus others like him/her…? Obviously, the more you give thumbs up and thumbs down on there, the more that station will tailor itself to reflect your true preferences. I love to listen to mine when I’m driving or on a walk just to help me chill out a bit.]
