Twelve Comedians Who Shaped My Sense of Humor

My ex-boyfriend introduced me to the world of stand-up comedy, and for that I am eternally grateful. I self-identify as a hopeless romantic, which really doesn’t translate into a witty, sarcastic sense of humor. Luckily, a healthy diet of Netflix comedy specials has allowed me to develop my own style of wit, influenced by the comedians I find hilarious. My first foray into comedy was Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. His comedy obviously directly pertained to current events (the focus of his television show), but his jokes made me laugh and incited my search for comedians to watch.

My favorite comedians with a Netflix special or two:

1. John Mulaney

2. Jack Whitehall

3. Joe Mande

4. Daniel Sloss

5. Aziz Ansari

6. Kevin Hart

7. Dave Chappelle

8. Jim Gaffigan

9. Iliza Shlesinger

10. Nikki Glaser
