Yeah - even tho comedy is famously "based in anger" - I am tired of *Angry Comedians" - Ron White is just in a class by himself, in my book - you can sit back and just feel at home.
Two of the oddest experiences of my life were seeing Eddie Murphy and Sam Kineson live.
Eddie Murphy was SOOOOOO playing the part of The Angry Black Man nothing was funny....he spent forever telling a story about how his mom made a hamburger vs MacDonald's making a hamburger, and it was NOT that funny at all.
Sam Kineson was pretty awesome, but being a woman, I occasionally got caught off-guard by his unbridled hatred for women....I had a weird moment - we were sitting a couple rows behind Ted Nugent with a lot of empty seats around us - and Sam did this awful schtick about women, and I think I just had this sickened look on my face, and then noticed Uncle Ted was turned around in his seat staring at my reaction....so, I stupidly tried to laugh....dumb me - I should have stayed as dismayed as I was....

I think he is a lot better now - I LIKE him now - but I remember when he was trying TOOOOOO Hard to be The Angry Young Black Man - I guess take over for Dick Gregory, whom, from what I've seen, was much, much funnier - but, I saw Eddie Murphy on Johnny Carson once, and he was trying so hard to be the angry black man that he made an ass of himself in the interview.....Johnny Carson congratulated him on his success, and asked what he was doing with his new-found wealth, and Eddie went into this really insulting shtick about, "Now that's a question you'd ask a black man, but not a white one...."

OMG - you know the *welfare burger* bit? I'd never heard it before, or since....I didn't know it was a standard! There was one moment that made me LOL -the mashed potatoes thing - but other than that - it was just him being angry and NOT funny....
