I like humor that surprises me...unexpected twists and turns of logic on the one hand, and just in-your-face screaming out loud humor on the other hand. George Carlin is a favorite. For reasons I do not fully understand, Buddy Hackett (of all people) leaves me absolutely breathless and on the floor. Sam Kinneson had a much similar effect. Dennis Miller's black-and-white HBO half-hour destroyed me; utterly hysterical.
