Even when I feel like nothing can turn my terrible day(s) around and I really do not want to smile, putting on a comedy special will inevitably make me crack. I do not like feeling bad but I do like to laugh, so why not put on something I know will provoke some cackles and giggles.
Here’s a list of my personal, timeless favorites:
What, Words, Words, Words, and Make Happy Bo Burnham
New in Town, Comeback Kid, and Kid Gorgeous John Mulaney
My Weakness is Strong and Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time and Patton Oswalt
Thank You Very Cool Nick Kroll
Beyond the Pale Jim Gaffigan
What I Should Have Said Was Nothing: Tales From My Secret Public Journal Mike Birbiglia
Killin’ Them Softly Dave Chappelle
Animal Furnace Hannibal Buress
You People Are All the Same Bill Burr
Laughter is good for the soul! I have seen each of these 5+ times. There SO MANY comedians I adore and never fail to make me belly laugh.
Who are your favorite comedians and/or what are your favorite comedy specials? I’d love to check them out if I haven’t already.
