Mel Brooks
Humor keeps the elderly rolling along, singing a song. When you laugh, its an involuntary explosion of the lungs. The lungs need to replenish themselves with oxygen. So you laugh, you breathe, the blood runs, and everything is circulating. If you dont laugh, youll die.

[Although Ball is considered a pop singer, he's not a total stranger to <br/> Gilbert and Sullivan, having played Frederick in the West End mounting of Joe Papp's memorable <br/> production of The Pirates of Penzance . But Patience is a different kind of work--much <br/> of its humor is highly topical, poking fun at the short-lived Aesthetic movement that flourished <br/> among British dilettantes 125 years ago. Will that humor translate to a New York audience in the <br/> year 2005?] I think there's absolutely no difference to how we regarded things then and how we regard <br/> things now, ... There are still those performers and artists who strike on a new art <br/> form or mode that attracts their fans, while the majority of us may be saying, 'I'm sorry, but isn't <br/> that The Emperor's New Clothes?' There will always be charlatans who do things just to get acclaim <br/> and adulation. So I think it'll speak to an audience as clearly today as it did then.

Quick note here: if this crush-slash-swooning stuff is hard for you to stomach, if youve never had a similar experience, then you should come to grips with the fact that youve got a TV dinner for a heart and might want to consider climbing inside a microwave and turning it on high for at least an hour, which if you do consider only goes to show what kind of idiot you truly are because microwaves are way too small for anyone, let alone you, to climb into.

Margaret Cho
It was hard for me to do the show (All American Girl) because a lot of people didn't even understand the concept of Asian-American. I was on a morning show, and the host said, 'Awright, Margaret, we're changing over to an ABC affiliate! So why don't you tell our viewers <i>in your native language</i> that we're making that transition?' So I looked at the camera and said, 'Um, they're changing over to an ABC affiliate.'

Lord Shaftesbury
#Humorous

He's truly a renaissance individual for our times, ... I've likened him to a Will Rogers voice in Congress (with) humor (and) common sense. He brought real legislative achievements, working on environmental issues for Southern California ... working on issues for the voters of California by protecting their will against activist judges. He was a well-rounded and dedicated lawmaker.

Everyone has embarrassing incidents at work -- it shows we're all human. The best way to handle awkward moments is to gracefully move on, and, if possible, try to find the humor in the situation.

We're both on the rebound, or whatever that terminology is when you're in recovery from a divorce. We have that in common, both scratching our heads fighting being cynical. And it's hard. You need a lot of humor to fight cynicism, and this movie has it - both, actually. So it's great.

You see, my dad grew up on Hollywood two-reelers and screwball comedies, ... His humor was very surreal and fanciful at times. I grew up on a steady diet of TV sitcoms, so my humor is more-to-earth.

Some people do it with irony and humor. Some people do it earnestly. Some people are ashamed of having to ask the question. And every so often there will be a journalist from Swaziland who doesn't know anything about it -- wonderful.

But we are at war, and we here at THE DAILY SHOW will do our best to keep you informed of any late-breaking...humor we can find. Of course, our show is obviously at a disadvantage compared to the many news sources that we're competing with at a disadvantage in several respects. For one thing, we are fake. They are not. So in terms of credibility we are, well, oddly enough, actually about even. We're about even.

"I love the movie previews... you know... Why is it whenever you're watching a movie preview you always feel like you have to comment on it to the person you're with? 'Yeah... I'm not gonna see that movie. I'm gonna wait for that on VIDEO.' I mean when you think about it, it's just a commercial for the movie. You know, you never sit at home watching tv-- "Yeah... I'm not buying that cereal. I don't like cereals with raisins in 'em. ...What's your take on that commercial? Where you goin'?"

Garrison Keillor
Humor, a good sense of it, is to Americans what manhood is to Spaniards and we will go to great lengths to prove it. Experiments with laboratory rats have shown that, if one psychologist in the room laughs at something a rat does, all of the other psychologists in the room will laugh equally. Nobody wants to be left holding the joke.

"I saw this sign posted once, it said, 'blasting zone ahead'. Wow... shouldn't that read: Road Closed. What do you mean there's a blasting zone, what am I supposed to do, 'Hey-- ah, you might wanna buckle up, blasting zone coming up. Yeah. Just saw the sign. Put the helmets on back there! Yeah I think we're-- (Pow!)-- Oh! We're getting close! (Pow!)-- Oh! This is gonna be a bad blasting zone! Remember that last one--we lost Billy?"
