High Levels of Humor on Tour?

Anyone else know of some great humor to take on tour?

Or how to find riding partners that have a highly synergistic sense of humor?

It's so great being with people who are crackling good with their mutual interactions.

Some people accept the barely tolerable. Others set the bar a bit higher, at tolerable or 'mutually compatible.' But I think all of us have had some interactions and relationship(s) that go beyond that. And maybe one or a few that go way beyond that -- beyond just compatible and even synergistic, to very high or even wild levels of synergy.

How to find that?

I guess one thing we can do is share whatever we have discovered -- either specific books, CDs, DVDs, 'infinite jest' approaches to life, etc., or strategies for coming upon them.

*******
Even though different people have different senses of humor, there is often some overlap, and some out there will probably find this guy very, very funny [some of us do -- at his best, he has very rare comedic genius, and we find ourselves laughing until our stomachs hurt and we can't stand up any more....]:

Phil Hendrie.

[if you are a very conservative person, or a highly decorous person, you may not want to listen to him. He can be very........ what?....... (indecorous? ribald? Falstaffian in the extreme?), but he can also be at times perhaps the funniest person one has ever encountered (with the possible exception of one very close friend...)]

He has some CDs.

I'll find his website and post it here in a minute.

*******
Here it is:

[once you catch on to what is going on in his radio interviews, some of them are a blast]

If you read some of the little summaries for those radio pieces, it gives some idea. When he hits his stride, he's absolutely great.

All You Can Eat.................Classic segment, finally available in it's entirety! Mavis is upset because she fears the Roman Catholic church ate her dead nephews body!! from KFI March 1997. (00:33:22)

National Day of Apology....
The debut of Justin! Justin joins the program to talk about "Youth National Day of Apology" a day where parents can apologize to their kids about how bad they are as parents. from November 2003. (00:33:23)

*******
The short stories of P.G. Wodehouse (Bertie Wooster and Jeeves)[there are also some DVDs available, as well as books on tape] have been a treasure for many years. He was a great comedic genius, with less of PH's SoCal twist, and more of a British one.

*******
Monty Python has spawned many moments of high laughter, for those who share their sense of things....

I don't know. Most of my touring has been solo.
