I wanted to broaden the previous post (hey, I'm looking for inspiration, all right??): Name ANYTHING that makes you laugh. Anything that comes to mind--Movies, TV Shows, books, comics, stand up routines, favorite jokes, scenes, personal experiences, writers, etc. From biting, sarcastic humor to corny humor--anything that's made you laugh. I'm hoping to find new things for inspiration (or be reminded of things I've forgotten about!) Some things that come to mind for me are: Monty Python (especially John Cleese and Michael Palin), "Raising Arizona", Phil Hendrie (the funniest man on the planet), Calvin and Hobbes, Chuck Jones cartoons, Dave Chapelle in "Undercover Brother", Dave Barry, Robert Benchley, Bob and Ray, Jack Sparrow, parts of Denis Leary's recording "No Cure for Cancer", Howard Stern 10 years ago (when Billy West was on it), Barney Fife, the dialogue in "Pulp Fiction"......

Have you read "The ACT of CREATION" by Arthur
Koestler? It was required reading when I was studying Communications arts.(Visual language course or something like that)
Kind of a big book, it reads like a favorite uncle, if you happen to have an intellectual for a favorite uncle; but worth reading every word. (He analyzes humor from a anthropological/psychological/sociological point of view)

"Thank you. And bring it on."

The first 20 mins of the South Park movie I have never laughed so hard in all my life. Actually there was one other time, when I was about 5 and I realised that if you take the "e" off the end of "wife" you get "wif" [abducted]
