Shivkumar Krishnamurthy : "You can't laugh and get offended at the same time. " Priceless.

TheMoldyPotato : This video seemed more useful than funny Unsub

BloodLiife : *kid comes back home from school* his mom : So what did u learn today the kid : Comedy = cancer

Ben Peltola : Somehow the actual pickle juice joke seemed really unfunny after your delivery of it.

Sierra Z : “What’s the most complex thing you do in your kitchen?”... Your mom

RobotExplanations : Don't let this distract you from the fact that we still can't figure out if she's into you.

nkooutsider : Professional standup comedian here! I've been ghost writing for a lot of celebs and have been paid very well from it too. There is a simple formula I use that helps you be original and will always get you laughs from anyone. 1) bring up a past story about yourself to make people invested in what you have to say 2) use extreme detail to have them picture your story into their minds 3) the build up is key because this is where the person's anticipation builds 4) then shove it up your butt

Elijah Blough : Lol my jokes are so bad, but I have a funny laugh so when I laugh at my own jokes people laugh at my laugh. Mission accomplished

lean. : This video taught me more about comedy than my arts degree did

Dexis : “Comedy is like cancer, you either give up or get better” I know what my senior year quote will be

Tales Of Taylor : That Loius CK misplaced nut joke made me burst out laughing.

mayisuppose : Bo Burnham? David Mitchell? Bill Burr? Okay this guy's comedic taste it incredible.

TheFaze : *The most complex thing I've done in my kitchen:* Spending 15 minutes or more looking for food in cabinets and everywhere to find them all empty when 15 minutes or more could've saved me on Geico car insurance instead

PhrozenFox : Yo did those guys get paid to laugh "I put extra pickle juice on my sandwiches lol"

Matthew Doan : Arguably cancer is preferable to bad comedy, because if you give up on cancer at least you won't have to live with never getting laid. I speak from experience.

CurtRichy : Wow this was actually helpful now i can be slightly less unfunny thank you

Dir Hell : 9:04 Cadence has nothing to do with jokes Cadence is the name of the sister in phonease and frob

Avital Alef : Your type of joke: "milk in a bag"

Arrogant American : 0:23 flashbacks to highschool English / drama I feel personally attacked.

Not You : the most complex thing ive done in a kitchen: my girlfriend and she's pretty intelligent

Matt McConaha : Last year I decided I was going to be a comedian. I dedicated every moment of my spare time to my art. I couldn't focus on my work because my brain was always full of comedic cobwebs that I was spinning. I stopped going to the gym, I stopped leaving the house, I stopped doing everything that wasn't directly contributing to my end goal. I lost my job, I lost my wife, I lost almost everything. But I still have the one thing that matters, my life. But it turns out that most people don't find that joke funny.

rannierunsfast : He's been laughing a little this video. Never heard him laugh before.

TheFlamingLion//// HotlionFox : "What is the most complex thing you do in your kitchen?" Use my "creaming machine", and if it doesn't work, I rub it harder.
