The Standup

The most popular comedic character is the stand-up comedian, sometimes called a jester, a wag, a wisecracker, or a quipster. The most successful personalities dress neatly, in anything from sport jackets to striped for-mals. Women wear evening gowns, bejeweled or feathery. The material is a series of one-liners and short comments on the contemporary scene. There are hundreds who could be listed in this category, but some examples are Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett, and Bob Hope. According to Milton Berle, the reason Henny Youngman does one-liners is that he can't remember two.

A girl goes into a clothing store and asks the salesman, "Can I try on that bikini in the window?" The salesman said, "Co ahead, lady, it might help business."
