    I heard somewhere that Steven Colbert has considered running for president in the future. He is a very sharp man.

    Colbert will not be running. South Carolina turned him down from participating in the primaries (Whether this was staged or a joke is unknown to me). They actually had a five minute joke about the things America would never see him do because of it. Colbert announced no one would ever see his "Impeachment Speech" or his "Excuse for Invading Iran."

    Its for the best. I first of all don't think he was ever seriously going to run it was jsut a joke, and second a comedian running would make a mockery of the system. It was a good joke though.

    Some people actually thought Colber twas serious and that's wher ethe rumors come from. Only goes to my point that Colbert is an excellent actor.

    That reminds me of another comedian/entertainer Andy Kaufman.

    I think my favourite comedian is Rich Little.
    Saw him in person one night and he was really great.
    But then he is always good.

    There have been so many great comedians over the years. Modern comedians like Chris Rock and Robin Williams dance on the raw side of humor, and then there are the subtler ones like Rita Rudner and Rondell Sheridan (who alsways reminds me of Magilla Gorilla - its the shape of his face and the grin). But there are also the older comedians who are no longer with us - Jimmy Durante, Charlei Chaplin, Jackie Gleason, Jack Benny, Henny Yougman, Ernie Kovacks - the list goes on and on.

    But if I had to pick just one, it would have to be that gentle soul from vaudeville, Red Skelton. He created the most uproarious characters, and delivered his monologues with a gentle humor that none could match. He always closed every show with "Good night, and may God bless."

    I like Noel Fielding.

    He's really funny when doing stand up on his own but is even funnier when he's in The Mighty Boosh. I think you have to have a certain sense of humour to find him funny though.
