Gut-Laughter...

I have it on good authority that the new Borat movie is laugh-out-loud hilarious. I may actually see this one in the theater. In preparation, I have enjoyed re-runs of "Da Ali G Show" on HBO the last two nights. It's one of those shows that makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe. Not many things can do that. Even a great show like "Seinfeld" couldn't do it. Sure, it made me laugh, but not uncontrolably. Here are a few other things that have made me gut-laugh:
  • Chappelle's Show
  • The Aristocrats (the movie)
  • George Carlin
  • South Park & Team America: World Police
  • My sister telling stories about working in daycare.
  • The Daily Show
  • Bill Hicks
  • I'm sure The Simpsons did, but it's been a while.
There are probably a few more, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head. I'd love to hear about others. Laughing is one of my favorite pasttimes.

Team America would definately top my list. So does the Vader Sessions.

It's terrific, but I'd give the HBO segments the edge.

I hope to see Borat this week. I need to bust my gut. And didn't you love Team America: World Police!

I don't have HBO so I have never seen Borat. A friend let me borrow the DVDs so I am hoping to see them this weekend.

I saw a couple of Borat segments on YouTube, and found him funny (I also do not have HBO). Not sure I'm willing to shell out for the theater, though.

We have very similar tastes.

I have to say that some of Grant Millers posts (and the comments to them) get me rolling. Once I even couldn't sleep because I kept thinking of it and cracking up.

I think I'm seeing that this weekend, and I spend quite of bit of after-school time watching Ali G clips on GoogleVideo when I should be grading papers.

South Park and The Daily Show and The Simpsons almost always make me laugh, as does my fucked up family.

America, FUCK YEAH!!!

Man, I love your list, mine looks oddly similar.

Maybe if Borat is still here at the end of the month we'll have a date. ;)

'The Aristocats' makes you gut laugh? Huh... How come?

"The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks" by Robertson Davies always provided deep chuckles to me.

B.O.: The AristoCRATS. Big difference. It's a documentary about the dirtiest joke ever told.
