I honestly can't think of any. Most of the funny ones are either left-wing or don't really talk/joke about politics.

I don't know if he's considered conservative, but Bill Burr has some conservative jokes. He's more of an equal opportunity comedian.

not conservative no

but there are plenty that constantly make fun of the ridiculousness the far left (as another poster mentioned)

But if youre talking about a comedian that does actual political comedy...cant really think of any on the left or right. Most political comedy seems lazy since trump is too easy a target

Right wing comedy for the most part comes off as mean spirited. They punch down and not up.

Bill Burr is an admitted "Lefty" (his words).

I don't know if you could call Carlin a liberal, but I surely wouldn't call him conservative.

I think the most you'll find are comedians that tell jokes that would be considered conservative. People like Bill Burr, Daniel Tosh, Ricky Gervais, Ron White, etc.

"Conservative comedy" has always been a bit of a weird label because most people don't count conservative jokes from comedians like those above. It's basically just a process of filtering out anybody funny until the only people left are cringe-worthy and then saying that those are conservative comedians.

This is perhaps the biggest difference between 'conservative' comedy and regular comedy.

It's always some old white guy going on about women and minorities and LGBTs and the "kids today" and stuff like that. It's less comedy and more like your cranky grandpa going on about some thing or other that he just doesn't understand. It's less comedy and more reveling in ignorance.

True comedy is sharp and witty, while 'conservative' comedy is incoherent ramblings.

Funny is subjective, but the people on Red Eye and Steven Crowder could be considered well known? Outside of them I don't think I've seen a comedian do straight 'conservative' comedy. Even the Blue Collar guys didn't have much if any political stuff if their sets.

I'd venture to say anarcho leftist.

The "you either have no rights, or all of the rights" bit comes to mind. Very anti-establishment. Doesn't conform to a political party.

By the way as a side note for Nick Di Paolo, if you remember Mitch Hedberg's joke about his neighbor who would knock on the wall when he played loud music, and Mitch would be like "Go to the door, I can't open the wall," that neighbor was Di Paolo, the joke was actually about him when they were apartment neighbors in LA.

Bill Burr, George Carlin, Joe Rogan... these guys and others are liberal in various ways, but there is no way theyd be completely accepted by that side because of all the purity tests. I mean they shit on themselves, Republicans, religious groups, the ultra-rich and so on, but the fact that theyre also willing to criticize and question the Left makes them alt-right to many. They are successful comedians who punch across the board, not just in one direction.

Neither of those 3 are conservative nor do they perform conservative comedy lol I do think it is funny that people identify Burr and Rogan with right wing politics solely based off of their stereotypical "toxic masculinity" schtick. Less so Rogan because his podcast but more so his stand up. I think it's hysterical that people identify Carlin as right wing though.

that Seanbaby article I posted is one of my favorites, and he mentions the 1/2 Hour News Hour

Conservatives think they're in a "culture war," and this is what they're coming with: an article about an idea for a knockoff of a 43-year-old show.

What's great about that robotic, uncreative idea is that it's not even original. In 2007, Fox News tried to do their own version of SNL's Weekend Update, and it went exactly the way you'd expect. The jokes on The 1/2 Hour News Hour ranged from "incompetent" to "propaganda with a laugh track."

Most of the funniest ones tell jokes that would considered to be right wing these days.

Chappelle, Burr, Patrice ONeal. Left wing types would all be super offended by them. Especially Patrice. Theyd probably consider him a mgtow, incel.

Yeah it's usually superficial. Carlin was pro-abortion, anti-religion, anti-NRA (hell, borderline anti-gun). Doesn't sound like any conservatives I know.

I think there is some science behind the idea that humor tends to be a liberal thing.

again, from that excellent Seanbaby article:

To understand why they can't make jokes, we need to understand how conservatives think. Conservatism's defining trait is a resistance to change. It's the same position many people throughout history have taken before dying evil and wrong, but there is some appeal to it. Like how you don't have to learn new things and you're always the best race. Unfortunately, when your top qualities are "dumb as shit" and "white," you don't have a good sense of what real problems are. You might even have to invent some, like billionaire-funded child actors coming for your guns or electorate-packing immigrants infesting your economy. You're one of the less fun forms of stupid, is the point. I don't think I even have a funny way out of this paragraph. We're all just very disappointed in you.

Not knowing which problems are real and rejecting information until it comes from proven liars with a motivation to lie is very bad for creating relatable comedy premises. Right-wing brains are trained for squeezing Hitler pegs through Hee Haw holes, not for mocking the absurdity of all these crazy pegs and holes.

Not really a science. It's a punch down vs punch up thing. People like to root for the underdog so when you have jokes that attack the underdog they're just not funny most of the time.

George Carlin was very much a liberal, but the 80s/90/2000s flavor of liberal (he was very anti-Bush) but I don't think he'd fit in with 2010s/20s flavor of liberal that's more concerned with purity.

Yeah, it's weird. Just because Burr, Chappelle and yes, even "alt-right icon" Joe Rogan make fun of "wokeness" doesn't mean they're conservatives. The rest of their opinions still tend to be solidly left-leaning.
