Let’s face it, one segment of the population has fared very well during this financial crisis….comedians have been given plenty of fodder for skits and there is no end in sight. When Barack Obama won the election , I was foolishly concerned for the welfare of the comics. I figured that many comedians would be polishing their resumes and looking for day jobs. Let’s face it, whatever you think of Obama – its obvious that he doesn’t offer anything close to the amount of canon fodder that George Bush regularly and generously provided. But the financial crisis has provided a wealth of new material to exploit and most have taken the ball and run with it.

What’s particularly interesting is the contrast between the Americans and the Brits. Their humor is so different. Here are two clips – one hilariously sarcastic diatribe by Stephen Colbert and the other featuring the rather clipped and understated humor from two British comics know as the “Long Johns” – two British comics who have a signature style that’s all their own.

Which is your favorite?
