He wasn't my favorite one, but Avery Schreiber was a natural.

Liked Sam K though.

You know Bill Murray is a weird dude by most accounts but I bet he’s a hoot to have a few drinks with.

I agree with Victor Borge and also liked Henny Youngman. One of my favorites was John Pinnette. He was funny, clean and likeable.

Red Skelton and Emmett Kelly tickle me. One used a lot of words and the other none.

Not technically a comedian, but Johnny Carson was a hell of a funny guy, especially when adlibbing.

People like Paul Lynde. He seemed to be playing himself in all the different shows.

Tim Conway and Harvey Korman.

Jackie Gleason...I’m thinking “The Honeymooners”.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

My version of naturally funny .

making people laugh w/o a script or pre written jokes.

when you walk up to a guy and offer a topic and the first 9 words out of his mouth have you grinning.


there is "funny " with a script. and then there is just plain old funny from the hip





Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.

And what Robin had was an ability to deliver memorized script as if he was making it up on the fly. I was a fan of Mork and Mindy.

Sorry. While Tim Conway is funny; who I had in mind was Bob Newhart. I can’t believe he wasn’t mentioned by the time I answered.

I most heartily agree. His ability to make you laugh so long and hard was based on just using his facial expression then he’d manage to make you laugh some more with just his eyes. You can’t get more natural than that.

ETA: corrected Tim Conway to Bob Newhart.
