We mean legitimately funny, not “brand funny,” like making cans that say, “No, Pepsi is not okay.” Eh, they’d probably end up ruining it by making it some April Fools’ marketing nonsense.

Brian Regan on Corn

“I heard on the news once — and my uncle does this — the government will pay certain farmers to not grow corn. Wow, where’s my check? That’d be great. “Hey, what do you do for a living?” “Well, I don’t grow corn. Get up at the crank of noon, make sure there’s no corn growin’. You know we used to not grow tomatoes, but there’s more money in not growin’ corn.”

Kristen Schaal on Good Luck Charms

“I used to carry a rabbit’s foot for luck. Then, it was a monkey’s paw. Now, it’s a camel’s toe.”

Mitch Hedberg on Monster Magnet

“I went to see a heavy metal band in New York called Monster Magnet. Man, they were heavy. The lead singer got on the monitor and said, ‘How many of you people feel like human beings tonight?’ Then he said, ‘How many of you feel like animals?’ And everyone cheered after the animals part. But the thing is, I cheered after the human being part because I did not know that there was a second part to the question. ‘Yes, I do feel like a human. I do not feel like a tree.’”

Zach Galifianakis on Home School Reunions

“I’m intrigued when people try to talk me into liking raisins. Like it’s a psychological flaw. People love to go, ‘Brian, do you like grapes?’ 

“Here we go, ‘Yeah. Yeah, I like grapes.’

“‘Well, raisins are just dried-up grapes!’

“‘Oh, I’ve loved them all along! I had no idea!’ 

“So I love to hit them back with, ‘Do you like ham sandwiches? You do? Well, would you like it if I put one outside for three weeks, in the broiling sun, on a picnic table, so it shriveled up to the point of unrecognizability, and put it on a plate and gave it to you? Would you like that? It’s just a ham sandwich!’”

Amy Schumer on Her Mom

“My mom is always bragging about the dumbest shit. The other day, she was telling me and my sister, ‘You know, I can still fit in my wedding dress.’ We were like, ‘Oh my god, who cares?’ I mean, it’s weird that she’s the same size now as she was when she was eight months pregnant.”

Roy Wood Jr. on the Brilliance of Street Fighter

“If you play Street Fighter, it was a brilliant game. This game was so bare-boned and basic. Two strangers meet in a public place and just whoop each other’s ass. There’s no journey; there’s no quest; there’s no princess to rescue in a castle. It’s just two dudes at a fish market going:

“‘Hey, I heard you was talking shit. Would you like to fight?’

“‘Yes, I would. You wanna come back tonight when it’s closed?’

“‘No, let’s fight right now, during business hours!’”

“‘Goddammit! What are they putting in the water?!?’ They text their child predator friends, ‘If you see a small girl under 5 foot, African-American: Abort!’”

Kumail Nanjiani on Fame

“I want to be so famous that I’m the pop-culture reference that people would make to try and be racist to me. So I’d be walking down the street, and someone would be like, ‘Hey, look at this Kumail Nanjiani.’”
