Much like Music Snobs there are a flock of people called Comedy Nerds. While some people (like me) don't necessarily like being called Music Snobs, most Comedy Nerds are proud of the label. Here are a few traits:
- They know not only who tell the jokes, but also who writes them
- They are interested in influences of comics
- They consume hour long comedy podcasts in massive quantities
Not listed is Jimmy Pardo's "Never Not Funny" and "Pod F. Tomkast" by Paul F. Tompkins. I'm not saying that those two are not funny, but I'm not listing them in the above list only because I'm not currently subscribing to them... But I know people that listen to, and enjoy, both of them.
Long story short: if you're looking to fill 6-9 hours of your week listening to funny people - check these out. I recommend scanning past episodes to pick a show featuring a guest you already know to start.
