Just how do you like your comedy?

If you have not entertained yourself with some stand up comedy then you have not lived. The real reflection of society are the jokes that comedians tell while on stage.

Comedy has come a long way, I am not going to tackle the sequence it took to what it is right now but there is definitely some inclusivity. Many women and other races are coming on board and they are thriving at it.

Dave Chappelle: Top of the list is the greatest of all time. Dave Chappelle will leave you in stitches with his comedy. People say that Dave makes intelligent jokes so you ought to be equally intelligent to understand him. I beg to differ, just know a little bit of what is happening around the world and you are good to go since he tends to say the things that everyone is thinking but afraid to say. Also just google the names he throws around during his set, his comedy will make more sense when you put faces to names. That’s what I do! When the black lives movement held protests following the death of George Floyd among other killings, Dave put together a show to add his voice to the efforts and this is why he is the best.

Rusell Peters; You will definitely love what a comedian of Asian descent brings to the table. With plenty of interesting cultural stories to share from the Asian community, Russell will leave you rolling on the floor with laughter. His work in comedy made him a pioneer of Netflix specials. Now you know what you will be getting into when you watch him.

Tiffany Hadish; listen to me! You have to make yourself love Tiffany. She is a ball of pure joy and energy even on talk shows, you are able to identify with her struggles and her high sense of respect for others. You will love her on stage as a stand-up comedian and you will also squeeze your way to a cinema to watch one of her movies. She is a woman most comedians who came before her are very proud of for her hard work and determination to walk in their footsteps

Whoopi Goldberg; did you know her real name is Caryn Elaine Johnson! Neither did I. If you never watched ‘Sister Act’ and ‘Sarafina’ then you will never understand the masterpiece that is Whoopi Goldberg. She will have you gasping for air with laughter in one moment and in the next make you see the dark side of humanity. She is an American sweetheart and a pioneer for black women in the entertainment industry. Her unapologetic ownership of the stage earns her a spot above the rest.

Trevor Noah; Patricia’s son is another one you should get on your list. Especially because he shares stories about his childhood in Africa as a mixed child which are hilarious. Trevor’s humour and jokes are a great way of dealing with aspects of the African continent which carry painful memories.

Bill Cosby; He might have been accused of committing atrocities against women but the fact still remains that his talent in warning people’s hearts is unmatched. He would stop you in your step just so you would catch his joke. May everyone who suffered in any way in his hands find healing.

Eddie Murphy; Haha! Eddie Murphy will have you laughing before he even makes the joke. He is a comedy genius that many in the industry look up to. Kevin Hart for instance has vowed to have learned his tricks from the watch and interacting with Eddie Murphy. You must have loved him in ‘Coming to America’ and even more in the recent release of the sequel.

Queen Latifah; She recently received a lifetime award from BET for the impact she has had in the entertainment industry. The beloved Latifah brings mature comedy to any scene. Apart from being a rapper, she will have you clutching your stomach with laughter at the mention of one thing. In one of her stand-up sessions, she made it clear that she wanted her comedy to stay clean for when she got children of her own.

Wonder Sykes; You will love her from Anthony Anderson’s sitcom ‘Blackish’ where she played the co-owner of the company. Her nonchalant nature will have you wondering how she is able to leave you wondering how there is still humour deep-seated. Her storytelling technique is out of this world

Amy Schumer; When it comes to white women telling jokes, it sounds very unpopular since comedy was known to be a black people’s way of dealing with their challenges. However, Amy proves that comedy is universal and belongs to all races. Her goofy face and honesty are what wins her the roaring laughter from her audience.

Eddie Griffin and Katt Williams; If you are looking to enjoy realness then trust your eardrums with Eddie Griffin and Katt William. They enjoy the creative’s freedom to the fullest by touching on subjects that most do not dare approach. There was one where Eddie was commenting on the beauty of the former USA’s first lady Michelle Obama. (Remember this is me writing so my editor can approve this piece for publication but Eddie is never this subtle and so is Katt William) He celebrates the contributions black people have made in building America as well as highlight their struggles like police brutality labeled against them. They will have you laughing at serious issues shamelessly.

Gabriel Iglesias and George Lopez; These two will make you want to become a Latin American. What makes them even more humorous is their accent which they proudly display. Their presence in the entertainment industry has been the breakthrough that many talented minorities in America have leveraged on.

So dear reader, whatever your taste is I got you covered with diverse talents that are a great source of laughter. Please enjoy a great laugh! Just make sure your bladder is empty because accidents are bound to happen! Also, make Kevin Hart a must-watch, even though he is not on the list.
