Does anyone else not find black comedians funny?
Seems like these days you are considered pretty odd if you don't find black comedians funny. I've watched a ton of black British and black American comedians' material on TV and on DVD and I didn't find much I liked. Some of Richard Pryor's stuff was ok but nothing I'd be in a hurry to watch again.

People kept recommending me to watch Kat Williams and Kevin Hart but I didn't find it funny at all. Too much recycled and repetitive material. I watched Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Lenny Henry, Stephen Amos, Martin Lawrence and others and I couldn't get into them.

I've heard even white English people call Chappelle the greatest comedian ever. What am I missing here?

I never did like Redd Foxx, he was all the rage in high school.

Richard Pryor was great and to this day he's one of my favorite comedians.

Eddie Murphy's stage act was an extension of Richard's work but good as well.

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids was funny for TV but I never did like Cosby on stage. Maybe he didn't curse enough to be trusted.

Spineless, politically-corrected Whites will pay money and sit in the audience and laugh while a negro "comedian" insults them.

I dunno, maybe it's generational. I liked Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and a few others.

Can't get into Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle etc.,. but my kids find them hilarious.

The funniest one I ever heard (don't remember who) was a guy who compared the names black people come up with for their children to over-the-counter drug names. The he listed a bunch that were very funny if considered as black people's names, like Tylenol, or Dristan. Don't even remember the others because it was so long ago.

Nope, I think it's just you. I find comedians of all races hilarious.

I'm racist as fuck and even I think some black comics are funny...perhaps you have no sense of humor.

Women comics though...no thanks.

I think this guy is funny:




"The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. ... Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls... Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to counter forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization." ~President Donald J Trump

"...sometimes, you have to be a high-riding bitch to survive. Sometimes, being a bitch is all a woman has to hang onto." ~Vera Donovan

"Pain or damage don't end the world, or despair or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man-and give some back." ~Al Swearengen

"Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet." ~Mattis
