I really don't care for Brian Regan. Unless he's developed better punchlines than making absurd noises into the mic, I don't understand the praise. Clean may be easier on the conscience, but sometimes it is simply not humorous.

Jim Gaffigan, on the other hand, has some great bits and delivers them in a less in-your-face-tell-me-I'm-funny type way. I really think it's the delivery of comedy that does it for me.

Its nice to be able to go see a comedian with my teen and not feel uncomfortable with a bunch of swearing. Yeah I know it goes on but ... We went to see a movie the other night and it seemed like they added swearing just for the sake of saying it ... would have been much better without it. I love Jim Gaffigan!

Interesting that I've heard comedic bits from all mentioned in the article in which they've cussed. Calling them profanity free or clean is not accurate and merely a sad commentary on the state of things today. That society would overlook minor offenses and proclaim them as profanity free shows just how low society is dipping.

A truly funny comedian left out of this discussion is Fred Klett. Clean and family friendly with a great stage presence. Look him up on You tube and have a good laugh cleanly!

The yellow one is the sun! Nuff said.

Brian Regan is hilarious.


Jim gaffigan is my favorite. He does do some religiously insensitive material, but its way funny.
