The Brighter 5: Five funny comedians start your day with a laugh

[July 23, 2021: Josh Shavit]



Here are today's five funny and insightful quotes to get you into your happy place. Enjoy!




1. Albert Brooks on fame

"It's better to be known by six people for something you're proud of than by 60 million for something you're not."



2. Johnny Carson on weather

"Last night, it was so cold, the flashers in New York were only describing themselves."



3. Milton Berle on aging

"I'm 83, and I feel like a 20-year-old, but unfortunately there's never one around."



4. Red Buttons roasting Dean Martin

"Dean Martin’s great-great-uncle, Ebenezer Martin, who said to Eli Whitney, "I see the cotton, but where’s the gin?" Never got a dinner!"



5. Bonnie McFarlane on pregnancy

"When you’re pregnant, people feel like they can come up and give you unsolicited advice. When I was nine months pregnant, this one woman came up and she said, "I have one word for you: epidural." And I was like, "Oh my God, thanks. But we already picked a name.""



Bonus Joke: Bill Burr

"You're a kid, your whole life is awesome. It's awesome, right? You had no money, no ID, no cell phone, no nothing, no keys to the house. You just ran outside into the woods. You weren't scared of nothing. I challenge you to do that as an adult. All your IDs, all your credit cards - just run out of the house with no phone, turn the corner where you can't see your house, and not have a full on panic attack."
