If You Enjoy Observational Humor

If You Enjoy Dark Humor
Dark humor (also commonly referred to as dark comedy, morbid humor, or gallows humor) is a style of comedy that brings forward a subject matter that is broadly viewed as taboo.
Comedy acts that tackle death, illness, and other topics typically considered serious and painfully discussed fit into this category.
If you appreciate this type of humor, we recommend stand-up comedian Josh Blue on Dry Bar Comedy. Winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and currently on Season 16 of America’s Got Talent, Josh Blue is known for making fun of his own Cerebral Palsy in his material – while also breaking down stereotypes of people with disabilities.

If You Enjoy Self-deprecating Humor
Another popular style in the world of stand-up, self-deprecating humor, is all about performers targeting themselves and pointing out their shortcomings or setbacks for comic effect.
Self-deprecation is usually done in a light-hearted manner and often involves sarcasm and some level of exaggeration.
If you constantly find yourself laughing at self-deprecating jokes, then you should check out Eric Lyden. A master of sarcasm and self-irony, Eric always gives his audiences someone to laugh with and relate to.
