  • Hey girl,

  • He made me blow air slightly more furiously out of my nose more than once in this video, he is a funny guy

  • It was not surprising to learn he used to be a nerd. He's actually still one, or at least has a typically nerdy sense of humour, cleverness over emotions. It's an intellectual sense of humour rather than an emotional one.

  • I also look at the world and constantly think "WTF"

  • Dear commentors

  • "I'm trying to decide if I should become an athlete or a criminal, so I made a list of pros and cons."

  • I’m pretty damn funny when I’m in the right mood. The other 99% of the time, I’m the most boring person ever.

  • "Humor makes the person more attractive"

  • “When something goes wrong with computers, we get error message but when something goes wrong with people , we get 'feelings' . ”

  • This is now my favorite talk.

  • On a date with a waitress..

  • Boy are you made of gold, titanium, sulfur, titanium, and carbon, cause you AuTiSTiC (periodic table jokes)

  • That waitress joke was clever :'D

  • Personally I think comedy is the key to anyone’s heart. I used to be that guy in the corner, sad, and didn’t want anything to do with anyone in school. Then I told a joke to someone, they laughed. It felt so good to have someone take notice and have a positive reaction to me. Then I tried it again, and then I realised I had something with comedy and making people laugh.

  • I didn't know Justin Timberlake's eyes did Ted Talks!

  • People did not understand "unable to establish connection with the server", talking about a waitress...

  • This guy made some really subtle easy to understand jokes, surprised the audience didn't get around him more. Not the funniest thing I've seen but impressive considering it was informative and he taught himself comedy

  • Hey if you’re a cannibal, don’t be late to a dinner party or they’ll give you the cold shoulder

  • Create a twitter to make puns? He's calling me out.
