I love laughing and I love people who laugh. I’m not partial to one style of humor. George Carlin made me laugh. So do Tracy Ullman, Mel Brooks, Steve Carell, Martin Short, Alec Baldwin and Charlie Sheen (although I’m guessing he’s not too funny in real life.) I think The Golden Girls is hysterical and so is Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Bill Cosby used to make me laugh. Now he takes himself entirely too seriously, which I find tedious, arrogant and uninteresting. Donald Trump also takes himself quite seriously, but I think he’s a clown. Dr. Phil, Martha Stewart, Tyra Banks, Jack Welch, Larry King and Brian Williams seem humorless.
They’re not comedians, and they don’t need to make me laugh, but I can’t imagine any one of them yukking it up or making fun of themselves. I think they’re all a little bit too self involved.
