I’m trying to imagine Carol Burnett or Cloris Leachman doing a stand-up set. The best I can conjure there is something akin to Bob Newhart’s style. It strikes me that the story tellers seem to shift from stand-up to sketch or film comedy.

I do wish that the list of easy jokes that you put forth were only limited to amateur comedians, but with people like Bill Burr out there, , , ungh.
