I was just thinking how a lot of the great comedians seem to at least be intuitives, if not intuitive thinkers. I just wanted to start a thread listing great comedians and our best guess for their type.

Louie CK - INTP maybe INFJ but probably INTP
George Carlin - ENTP
Dave Chappelle - INTP?
Eddie Izzard - ENTP
Daniel Tosh - ENTP
Kevin Hart - ENTP

Those are just the ones at the top of my mind. List anymore you can think of.

Eddie Izzard is the man. He and Louie are my favorites.

Steve Martin is ENTJ
Conan is ENTP
Bill Murray ENFP

Physical comedians seem to be more of the ESF* variety.

I forget who or where I heard this, but I laughed for about 20 minutes by myself afterwords...

"I like escalators, they never really break, they kinda just become stairs"

There are three classes of comedians.

NT - The superior comedians. Speak in terms of intellectual analysis.

SPs - The Dane Cooks. Speak in terms of douchebaggery.

SJs/NFs - The shitty comedians that won't step outside their box to be funny. (You know who you are, Jerry Seinfeld.)

the guy's too smug to be INTP, I say unhealthy ENTP
That's a little narrow. I'd like to think that all types can be smug, INTPs included.

Robbin Williams - ENTP or ENTJ
Chris Rock - INTP
Jerry Seinfeld - ENTP (I think)
Eddie Murphy - ENTP
Bill Hicks - INTP

Jon Stewart, I don't know. He confuses me. I'll just cover the bases and say he could be a strange version of any of the NTs

Ehhh....I smell a whole lot of INTP/ENTP bias here. For 2% of the population, I really doubt that all the comedians listed above are an NTP type.

A lot of comedians, especially modern ones, have no interest in making people laugh or spreading cheer. They want a platform for their political agenda where they can write off anything they say as "just comedy" and avoid repercussion, or they're seeking an outlet for their inner rage. Modern comedy tends to be thinly veiled propaganda and the only reason more of the public isn't aware of it is because the vast majority of "comedians" propagate the accepted social political correctness. And the general public is stupid.

So before this question can be answered, we must separate the true comedians from the agenda driven instigators using comedy as their weapon and shield.
