who's the funniest person you know?

Who is the funniest person you've ever known?


Mesa County


Cheryl Moe 

“As a child, I loved watching Laurel and Hardy. They always made me laugh. Now I really enjoy Chevy Chase.”

Steven Spydell

“I’d have to say Steve Bhaerman—aka Swami Beyondananda—who utilizes the most witty of puns to analyze the American human social condition on his website www.wakeuplaughing.com. His common message is: ‘Shift or get off the pot.’”

Erin Chapman

“The funniest person I know is my cousin Vinny (Actually, it’s my cousin’s husband, Vince). Vince is your typical ’70s salesman telling cheesy jokes like ‘What did Lawrence Welk name his daughters? Anna one, Anna two’ or ‘I wanted to go on a diet, but I’ve got way too much on my plate right now.’ They are so bad, but you still laugh. And his laugh is so genuine, you have to laugh along with him!”

Tom Baker

“Ron Widner, my regional boss for 11 years in California. His sarcasm was ‘par excellence,’ and he allowed me to be a ‘prince’ in his court when I only asked to be a jester, as he
was the king.”


Montrose & Delta Counties


Lois Gram - Montrose

“My second son, Jeff is the funniest person I know. He has a dry sense of humor and has always entertained our family. We love him for making us laugh.”

Chalmer Swain - Delta

“My friend, Mike Blackburn has the gift of humor. He’s a retired funeral director, an MC, and knows how to tell the right joke at the right time and keep people in stitches. It’s never a dull moment being around Mike.” 

Lisa Rediger - Montrose

“One of the funniest people I know is my friend Barbara Jo Bourke. She has a knack for getting herself into hysterical situations, and a gift for retelling the experience with drama, color and theatrical flair. Hanging out with her is never boring.”

Hank of Cedaredge & Siggie Carpenter of Montrose

Hank: “Siggie, you’re the funniest person I know!”

Siggie: “Say what? Hank, you’re the funniest person I know!”

We’re senior stand-up/sit-down comedians. Cheers to laughing more!
