For a long time now I would find myself being uncomfortable watching comedians/hosts who use the misery of others for their so called humor. Specifically I'm talking of the late shows (regular tv). But I would watch the programs because the alternative was infomerials and I didn't need a grill.
I would typically watch Jay Leno, mainly because that channel was clearer on my tv than others. (and if you watch closely, Jay is a bit of a lech...) After Jay comes Conan. For a long time I would mumble under my breath about how bad the attempt at humor was... it wasn't funny and a third grade boy could be as good, as funny as this guy. Finally, because I'm a bit slow, it dawned on me to check the other guy's show. The other guy show was Craig Ferguson. I found him to be much funnier in the true sense of the word. So now I watch Craig.... whenever I haven't fallen asleep on the couch.
I came across this youtube cut from another blog the other day. (sorry, can't remember which blog.) Now I know I really like him. Please watch. It takes about 12 minutes.
Craig Ferguson Speaks from the Heart.
