This argument interests me. I like people who make me think and sometimes that takes time, me being me.. though I get the pacing of what I consider good comic talkers. I liked Bob Hope - somewhat - way back when, maybe when I was twelve, and in general as years went by didn't agree with him on politics stuff. I didn't just hate him, though.
A guy I liked, well, I would, was George Carlin. Met him once, over a lab counter. Neither of us were funny that day, nor despondent, true neutral, no acting apparent.
