As it is for many people, humor is one of my main passions in life and I have always been a big fan of the comedy of
Monty Python, the
W.C. Fields, and
Woody Allen. I love reading something really funny but visual comedy
will always be my favorite, both movies and TV.
Some of the best comedy of all time was British TV shows like
This is still some of my favorite humor. I miss those days, but thanks to DVD (previously VCR) videos and YouTube I can still enjoy them.
I'm also a big fan of Dilbert
in the comics in the newspaper and some animated TV shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons.

"And now for something completely different!"
||Monty Python (Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam) produced some of what I consider the most
hilarious comedy of all time. Back in the early 70s they had a weekly TV show that I never missed. I purchased the The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus Megaset when it came out on DVD and now I can watch
this great comedy whenever I feel like it.

Here are many jokes I have gathered online, mostly from emails and occasionally on Facebook. When I read something that is incredibly
funny, or simply incredible, to extend its life I often preserve it here. I have "webified" any of these jokes that originated as email,
retaining the original format as much as possible. This is one of the most frequently updated sections on my website so if you enjoy it I
encourage you to come her often. New jokes are added at the top of the list. The ones with a year in the title may be
"dated" but they are still funny.
