There’s one thing that never fails to make me happy, and that’s comedy. Bill Cosby was totally right when he said that “Through humor [one] can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers.” Now I now that today belongs to Iron Man, and that Marvel’s Phase 2 has officially begun. But I’d like to turn our attention to a different type of superhero for a bit.
You see, to me, comedians are sort of like superheroes because they possess the rare power of being funnier than the average person (and isn’t being “better than average” what being “super” is all about?). You think saving the world is hard? Try making someone genuinely laugh. So I’ve collected some photos of my favorite comedians/funny people when they were young. It’s always fun to look at how famous people looked during their youth. Below, you’ll discover that many of these comedy folks look exactly the same, while others are almost unrecognizable.
