Ah, so you knew they exist and yet you still whine...
Late night comedians, I actually think most of them will find their groove and have just been grabbing the low hanging fruit for now. No one wanted to be accused of getting in the way of "history" now did they?
Yes, history is a day to day process, but give them some time...
Successful conservative comedian, there probably aren't many that is true. However I do consider Limbaugh, Maher and Coulter all to be in the same group whatever we care to call that group. Most would probably add Colbert and Stewart to that as well.
Limbaugh isn't funny, his expertise
(as with Coulter) is to encourage your listeners' fears and insecurities. Affirm their prejudices. Uphold their bigotry as a virtue. Praise their ignorance as "down-home values". Make them feel better about themselves by telling them they're not the lowest rung on society's ladder. Enrage them by telling them that other people are to blame for all their problems. Point out who those people are so that your listeners know who to hate.
The rest are stand up comedians. In many cases, they do have a free pass, just as Don Rickles. But not for hatred and bigotry. A fine line, but most comedians know where to draw that line.
Conservative comedians? Drew Carey was one, until he gave up in 2004
There is also Evan Sayat
. Hasn't made much of an impact, but he is good.
Ben Stein?...need I say more...
