Jimmy Fallon almost broke into tears on his show last night, I would not have thought less of him if he had.

Kathy Griffin is another one of those comedians that comes of brash and offensive, but has a heart of gold.

Isn't it funny that female comics can be termed brash and offensive, but we have the likes of Don Rickles, Andrew Dice Clay, and Redd Foxx? I love most comediens, though Lisa Lampanelli and Andrew Dice Clay kinda turn my stomach. I've never found ADC funny at all. Misogynistic little creep.

I remember a study we discussed in a psychology class I took back in my single days. The control group of strangers was together in a room listening to excerpts of comedy bits by Don Rickles and Bill Cosby. When the Rickles cut played the test subjects didn't interact with each other, instead they acted uncomfortable and kept to themselves. When the Cosby cut was played the people laughed out loud and were visibly more relaxed, interacting with each other about what was being said by Cosby. I've always preferred the Cosbys of the world - give me soft and fuzzy comedy.

I have a very thick skin and I am not easily offended, but Andrew Dice Clay and Lisa Lampanelli just don't appeal to me. When a joke just relies on shock value over wit, I don't often find it funny. People usually laugh at these things for two reasons, they are so uncomfortable that it's an involuntary reaction or they agree with the offensive thing that the person said.

Maybe people in general expect a more nurturing, softer approach from women, and when they don't get that, they are labeled more harshly. Many people aren't comfortable with things that are different and need to find a way to label them to make the pill easier to swallow.

I think female comics in general are more self-deprecating. Males can more easily get away with making fun of others. Joan could do both.
