I've seen Jerry Clower, Lewis Grizzard, and Tim Wilson. Tim used to do WIVK's free concert in Knoxville most years, and I saw Lewis when I lived in Alabama.
I had 2 opportunities to see Jerry Clower, but only managed to do it once at Renfro Valley in Kentucky. The first time was in Birmingham at the fair. My fair date decided she didn't want to see Jerry Clower, and as mad as I got, I had to leave. I never did figure I'd be able to explain to her daddy how I let her walk off by herself in the middle of Besemer.
My dad used to laugh till he cried at Foster Brooks. For that reason, I always found him funny as well.
The Burnett crew had some good stuff too...
From today, when Steven Wright first came out I thought he was hysterical.
The first time I saw Bill Cosby's "dentist chair" routine I could hardly catch my breathe.
It takes a lot for me to laugh out loud at a comedian (I've seen a few). That's actually got to be a tough job.
