One of the things I like about NetFlix is that I have great access to stand up comedy. The only time I've ever seen a stand up on stage was when I took a 7-day cruise from Miami to Jamaica. I don't remember the guy's name but I do remember that he did a "clean" family act with only a small amount of risque material, mostly in the form of limericks.
Now, NetFlix has comedy acts for every taste. Male. Female. Black. White. Asian. Urban. Red Neck. PG. R. XXX. Below are my current favs.
So, this isn't an exhaustive list. But, it's a place to start. I think we all need a little humor in our lives and I think there's something for everyone. So, I'll end with a quotation from HelpGuide.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people cope with mental illness.
Sure, it’s fun to share a good laugh. But did you know it can actually improve your health? It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. As children, we used to laugh hundreds of times a day, but as adults life tends to be more serious and laughter more infrequent. By seeking out more opportunities for humor and laughter, though, you can improve your emotional health, strengthen your relationships, find greater happiness—and even add years to your life.
I spend more time than I like to admit on NetFlix and other services. When I can't sleep or am too exhausted to even think, I pop on the TV. As do most people, I have some definite opinions about entertainment offerings on cable, NetFlix, VuDu, and in theatres. If you're interested, read on....
