I'm following your blog: gtetuel78What makes me laugh is any comedian who makes fun of the absurdity of human behavior we all face (what comes to mind is Ellen Degeneres's classic bit about the outright horror we experience when we mistakenly think someone's waving at us and we return the wave) and the ridiculousness of celebrity (a la Kathy Griffin). Chelsea does both of these things, and at the same time she's self-deprecating, which always makes me laugh, too.Thanks!gkaufmanss@yahoo.com
