Are comedians born or made? This is a question that has been debated for many years. Some people believe that comedians are born with a natural ability to make people laugh, while others think that anyone can become a comedian if they learn the right techniques.

These are all valid. Whether these comedians landed in a place that is better than where they started is debatable, but what isn't is that it is very weird.
