And remember: Telling jokes is good for children! Why did the chicken cross the road? Knock, knock. Who's there? Eddie Murphy: Raw instantly made me wanna do stand-up comedy.
I just loved how he told stories in the silliest ways. One of my favorite jokes ever is of Eddie Murphy in Delirious , when he would talk about how his aunt would fall down the stairs. The genie came out and gave me three wishes. What was the third wish? I asked for round orange head. I was not aware and cannot condone anything else he was doing on his own terms, but purely as the comedian I saw on television, he was an early influence for me. Ron Funches Undateable Seeing Tig Notaro just push around a stool onstage for what seemed like ten minutes changed my perspective of what I can do onstage.
And seeing Lucille Ball light her fake nose on fire in I Love Lucy really struck me as something hilarious and dangerous and made me want to get into comedy. My favorite part was when Belushi is messing with the uptight family in the fancy restaurant where Mr. Sell me your children! How much for the leetle girl?! That joke is the damn Odyssey to me. His insecurity battles with his confidence. His good battles with his own evil. Something everyone thinks about every damn day.
And then he makes a reference to Close Encounters of the Third Kind?! I was like, Holy shit I thought I was the only black kid that knew about that! As a kid, I watched him on the original SNL s. I thought if I try to be half as good as that, that would be enough to be considered one of the greats.
This is one of the most slept-on comedy programs of all time. Stand-up mixed in with sketches put together by Robert. It was a precursor to In Living Color. It was a bridge from an older generation to the guys that were about to take it from there. Clever bastard. I loved wrestling as a kid, and watched it for that experience, but was crying laughing the first time I saw it. That lit a fire under me that I think still fuels a lot of what I try to do. I think Louis C. I remember when I saw it for the first time, laughing so hard, and then thinking about it all night.
Scott Aukerman Comedy Bang! Back in , I saw two things in the same week that made me realize there were weirdos interested in doing the same kind of comedy I wanted to do. I never knew that much about him before that.
He watches a man across the way speaking to every woman who passes by. Eventually, he leaves with one of the women. The next day, the same thing happens. So the next day, he sits on the park bench. He gets more and more drunk, trying to work up the nerve to talk to a woman. She turns around. He seemed like a very, very smart man. She wanted to watch it too. My father used to do the exact same thing, and it made me feel very close to Eddie.
I went to a lot of shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre before I started taking classes there. It was a loose collection of characters and stories, but it just worked as a whole, and every individual piece was hilarious. In one bit, he would put on a creepy devil mask and give life advice and tips to the audience. He shared how, if you dipped your penis in honey and put it in front of an infant, the baby would automatically start sucking your dick.
What did you expect? Kevin Kline is sent to apologize to John Cleese.
He sits in his car beating the steering wheel and fuming, trying to force himself to utter a practice apology. He then sneaks into the house, mistakes John Cleese for a burglar, and beats him with a fireplace shovel.
That immediate and acute reversal of character was always so funny to me. Seinfeld was the one comedian where I was like — what?! Stand-up can sound like that?! A joke can be worded like that?! It showed me that stand-up can come in a million different forms, not just setup-punchline, you just have to be authentic and do it your way. There was a bass player that would come to Dallas from Houston when Mitch was in town to play bass in the background.
There was this one night … it was a Thursday, the club was packed, and it had this really cool supper club vibe to it. There was something so special about that night. Mitch was killing with no effort and that bass in the background … it just heightened the vibe. This is magical.
It was the first time I saw a stand-up that I thought was cool, and not old fashioned. He was doing something new that I was really attracted to. Andy Daly Review The first time I made a room full of people laugh I was either three or four years old at nursery school, and it was my job to carry the tray of fruit juice into the kitchen and I accidentally dropped it, but all the kids thought I did it on purpose, so I got a big laugh.
So I went with it and played it up. I must have already been a bit of a wise-ass at that point. That was real anarchy, to throw down a whole tray of fruit juice just for laughs. I would not have been so bold, but they gave me credit for that, and I took it, and I got in trouble! Okay, let me start by saying, I formed this opinion many, many years ago. Everything you need to know about putting together a bit is here; from act-outs to callbacks to timing.
But purely on the mechanics, it is the greatest piece of next-level stand-up ever. It was the first time I realized how much fun it was to sing jokes. When I was about six years old I saw Louie Anderson on TV doing a joke about trying to flush a dead pet bird down a toilet. It was a physical bit where he spun in a circle to show what the bird would look like. I performed the joke for my family and anyone else who would listen. I would really commit to the spinning. My favorite: Where does a pirate keep his buccaneers?
But my mom said no.

See, she had a brother who died in a horrible motorcycle accident when he was And I could just have his motorcycle. I used to watch all of the old Jerry Lewis movies back when I was in junior high and he made me want to get into comedy. Just silly as hell and goofy as it gets. I was hooked on that show in the early s. My favorite all time joke is by Pablo Francisco. It was a bit about Mexican girls and fighting. I could watch that bit over and over again.
It never gets old. It was the first time I saw live sketch comedy, and it took away all the thoughts that doing sketch comedy had to be huge and produced. It was amazing. Then, of course, to follow it up with Norm, who is one of my all time favorite stand-ups. That would be the show that pushed me toward getting started seriously.
My favorite joke of all time is an old B. Novak joke.
We were doing open mics around the same time, of course before his meteoric rise to the top. But he was one of the sharpest joke writers on the scene. I eventually broke the binding and carried it in two pieces. But my favorite were the worst kind in the book, these story-jokes that always involved an Irishman, a Scotsman, and a German doing something together. Actually, that sounds like a lot of my act now. I get it. That was when I first become obsessed with telling jokes. It was a weird set-up, where they were all onstage at once and handed the mic back and forth, and did one joke at a time, but they were very good.
