The Comedian Who Changed My Life Is Richard Lewis

The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life.

Hey it’s , and the comedian who changed my life is . 1986 or 86 he had his first special…on, I think Showtime. I always wanted to get into show business but made me want to get into Stand Up Comedy.

I thought his jokes were amazing. I thought he was hilarious. I thought his delivery was original. And I was lucky enough to get into the business and meet him. And he’s a good man. He’s not disappointing to meet. Just as funny off stage. So my guy is Richard Lewis. I saw him at Carnegie Hall in the 80s. I saw him at Caroline’s by myself in the 80s. So…big fan. Much props to Richard Lewis.

I don't think ANYONE ever understood what Richard Lewis was doing. But, it was probably cool to say that you "got it". I sure didn't. I think Emo Phillips was funnier than him.

@Waldo Lydecker  You're out of your mind.  Richard Lewis is hilarious.  Emo is pretty funny too.

@FrancisStevens I agree. I am out of my mind. But, I still think Richard Lewis sucks. Wait a minute.......I just took the letters in "FrancisStevens", rearranged them and came up with "RichardLewis". I get it now.
