What defines a "comedian"? Purists might reserve that word only for stand-ups, and they are wrong. That elitism excludes improvisers, magicians, sideshow performers, burlesque performers, sketch artists and more. In my opinion, anyone that regularly and intentionally makes others laugh is a comedian. (and the best kind of person)
In Branson this weekend, I met some of the funniest and hardest working comedians I've ever come across. Half Hee-Haw, half Second City, these guys put on one hell of a good show. Plus, they were extremely nice to a certain touring stand-up psychologist. If you haven't, y'all need to get your butts out to Branson sometime and see the Comedy Jubilee.
