Today on Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR, I was listening to a short story about Woody Allen's upcoming documentary on PBS American Masters about his life and career.
Well, anyways it got me thinking about how much funny men rule! These gentlemen have been wooing our hearts for years with their incredible wit, timing and charm.
Here are a few of my favorite funny fellas
Woody Allen (duh!)
Steve doesn't get it but I think you either love him and get his dry comic brilliance or he annoys the hell out of you. His movies are charming and his acting is awkward but that is what makes a film trademarked with his uncanny style.
David Sedaris is a stitch! Seriously such a great writer. My mom and I listened to 'When You Are Engulfed In Flames' and laughed our asses off together, Plus hearing his sweet squirrel-y voice narrate it made it even better! Plus his sister Amy Sedaris is a knockout. If you haven't checked out her craft books yet, I highly suggest you do!
Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, Scrooged, What About Bob?, Groundhog Day, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Lost In Translation, Coffee and Cigarettes, The Life Aquatic, Broken Flowers, Get Low, Fantastic Mr. Fox... C'mon!!
You had me at Seinfeld!
