Bill Hicks:

The late Bill Hicks is among the few comedians that I know of who actually has a deep and meaningful point to his act. Clips: on marketing (a personal favorite), on the point of life, more clips.

Quotes:

  • “I’ve been on the road doing comedy now for ten years, so bear with me while I plaster on a fake smile and plow through this shit one more time. Teasing. It’s magic every show.”
  • “Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”
  • “I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that’s how it comes out.”
  • “By the way, if anyone here is in advertising or marketing, kill yourself. […] You’re the ruiner of all things good. Seriously, no, this is not a joke. […] There’s no fucking joke coming, you are Satan’s spawn, filling the world with bile and garbage, you are fucked and you are fucking us, kill yourselves, it’s the only way to save your fucking soul.”

Jeff Dunham

The man is amazing, very talented as a puppeteer, but his humor is especially witty and clever. My favorite is Bubba J., the “white trash trailer park”, but it’s all good: Melvin the superhero, Achmed the dead terrorist, Walter & the others.

Quotes:

  • “AA is for quitters.”
  • “Jeff: Where did you meet your wife?
    Bubba J.: At the family reunion.”
  • “Jeff: Do you have a drinking problem?
    Bubba J.: Nah, I have it pretty much figured out.”
  • “Walter: My wife and I heard that coffee’s good for your sex life.
    Jeff: Coffee?
    Walter: Yeah.
    Jeff: Is it?
    Walter: No. It kept me awake through the whole damn thing!”

Man Stroke Woman

This is British humor at it’s best. Examples here, here and here. And speaking of British humor, you might also enjoy 2DTV.
