Five Funny Men who “Tickle” My Funny Bone (or make me laugh and I might f–k you)

Much can be said about what attracts one person to another. Physique. Intellect. Kindness. And so on. All of those ingredients are important. But for me, what sends me over the top is a guy that can make me laugh. My first husband was one of the funniest men I’ve ever met. My current husband is also very funny in a completely different way (of course, honey, in case you are reading). And most of the men in my life have been extremely funny.

And here’s the thing: I think most women would agree about this. Laughter and humor may be more important that ANY of that other stuff. May be.

I don’t know if men consider it as important as we do. That’s something to think about.

I posed the question on Facebook. One woman said she likes a man who challenges her intellectually. Another one likes a man who is not afraid of doing dishes. I say yes to both of those things–but a big yes to laughter.

In the mean time, I’ve come up with a list of funny men that get my wheels turning–in more than one way.

Jerry Seinfeld.  I spent every Thursday night with him for years. And yes, I want more.

Russel Brand. What a hottie. And a bit of a rebel. I totally dig his accent.

Nothing like a rebel baby.

Jon Stewart. The only man who can keep me up at night. (Other than my husband, of course.)

A young Gene Wilder.

Sexy, just plain sexy.

Seth Meyers.

So cute, though he looks a bit naughty, wouldn’t you say? Grin.

And speaking of naughty, my very naughty SAFFRON NIGHTS is marked down to $1.99 on B &N and Apple.  I’m celebrating by giving away 3 copies to commenters today who want their copies from either one of those places.  Who are your favorite comics? What makes you laugh?

    Humour is a really subjective thing, so it can be a double edged sword. I find it amusing that almost every man who thinks he’s really funny is wrong. I love that the Beeb has just put an end to all-male comedy panel shows. FINALLY.

    A lot of men (and some women) try to argue that women aren’t funny — the myriad funny women prove otherwise, but there’s something aggressive inherent in comedy. Good comedy requires intelligence and quick thinking: women who are funny are often seen as ‘aggressive’ which frightens timid men. Too bad!

    Loooove Russell Brand. He’s such a cheeky little rebel. Very well spoken and articulate. He’s a bit full of himself but that’s part of his charm.

    There are a lot of great comedians who make me laugh for various reasons — Reginald Hunter, Tommy Tiernan, Frankie Boyle, Dara Ó Briain, and others.

    Funny actors? Probably the funniest show on tv right now is the Big Bang Theory. Every character on the show is funny in his own way (though I secretly have a soft spot for Raj, probably because he’s so sweet but no one wants him because he tries too hard).

    Do I think any of them sexy too? Not overly, though Tommy is kinda cute and Reginald has an insanely deep voice I love. But being able to make me laugh is pretty sexy full stop, regardless of looks, or, to an extent, age.

    Laughter makes us happy. The happier we are, the more content we are with life. I’m all for a happy and content life full of laughter.

    Steve Coogan is who immediately comes to mind when I think of funny. I love a funny guy–a funny British guy is soooo hot.

    However, when we went to an event this weekend, DH kept me in stitches the whole way.

    ME: “It’s funny, but even though courts didn’t find Woody Allen guilty, he doesn’t seem to have a relationship with any of his children.”

    DH: “Except the one he married.”

    Buh-da-bum tish!

    Recently saw the last James Gandolfini film “Enough Said” and Mr. Soprano was just shooting out the one liners with such great timing.

    I definitely have a soft spot for funny guys. Laughter is hugely important on my list. Ripped abs and a body to die for are awesome but alas, we all age, and the physical qualities just aren’t going to be around forever. Humor, on the other hand, is timeless.
