    Jack E Leonard taught Don Rickles how to be funny.
    Chris Rush was an underground standup comic in the late 1970s, back when all standup acts smoked pot on stage and all clubs looked like Redd Fox's club in Vegas (with a cloud of smoke that extended from the ceiling to 7 ft above the floor at all times).

    I like comics that paint pictures with their words. I think anyone can tell a joke but the good ones can make you see the funny situation in your imagination. Chris Rush had one line that always gets to me: "Honey, your breath could knock a buzzard off a shit wagon, and guys would still line up to talk to you." Probably because (1) i can see that image in my head, and (2) i know so many girls who fit that description.

    Brother and I watched his first HBO special when we were kids. We snuck out into the living room and put a blanket over the tv and formed a tent if you will, so the tv wouldn't blare into the parents room. Dad woke up anyways, he finished watching it with us
