Funny: Christopher Titus
  • Almost all of Norman Rockwell is Bleeding, wherein Titus describes his early life, most of which was terrible.
    • "We had everything in my family! Perscription drug abuse. Mental illness. One of my uncles is a Mormon."
    • Falling into a bonfire, which convinced him to stop drinking.
      Titus: Then I see my hands inside this burning ember, and I exclaim... "AAAAAAAHHHH!"
      • They were also burning a telephone pole. He didn't know where they got a telephone pole, but it's pretty high up there on the "drunken theft" scale.
  • The story of how Titus videotaped the news report of his father stopping at a drunk driving point while the news team was on location live for a Memorial Day traffic report and used it to humiliate his father whenever he got drunk and humiliated him during family get-togethers (which, considering Papa Titus, was often).
  • A lot of his setups tend to be subverted right at the last second.
    Titus: (referring to when he and his first girlfriend — the Jewish girl who kept punching him in the face — moved to a beach house): Once the geography changed? My God. It was a fucking nightmare!"
    Titus: (referring to when he and Erin first broke up over infidelity): And I read her beautiful words and... I started to realize... I owned her ass.
  • Describing the first time he challenged his dad to a fist fight:
    Titus: Yeah, 'cause fighting Dad's not a fight. Fighting Dad is, (a la a game show announcer): "Hi! You've just instigated your own mugging! Come on down!"
  • When talking about his dad's...unconventional home medicine practices:
    Titus: When I got sick, when I was a kid growing up, he'd always warm me up a shot of 100-proof whiskey. Never got sick....(worriedly)....That I can remember....
    • As well as Anti-Dad! The most negative superhero on the planet!
  • Mentioning that everyone had that one relative that you'd get a call from the cops about at 6 in the morning. "Bet it's not your mom..." And Titus is not a morning person.
    Titus: (long sequence of annoyed/sleepy/cranky grunts, groans, coughs and snorts) ...hello?
    Voice on the other end: Hi, Mr. Titus; this is Ira Stephenson.
    Titus: ...and?
    Ira: Well, sir, I'm your mother's lawyer.
    Titus: ...and?
    Ira: Well, sir, your mom's in prison.
    Titus: AAAAAAAAND?!
    Ira: Well, sir, she's killed her husband.
    Titus: ...oh. Okay, that's a new one.
  • In his Fifth Annual End of the World Tour:
    • After calling out a woman for being a 'shaker' (someone who laughs without making any noise, just moving), he goes on with his gig until...
    Titus: DO YOU MAKE A NOISE, LADY?!
    Father Crucifier: SHUT UUUP! TAKE IT LIKE A MAN! Oh, no, I'm sorry, Gregory. I ''know'' that's what he said to ya', don't cry!
    Audience: Ohhhh!
    Father: Don't go oh'ing me! Look behind me, I'm handlin' it.
  • His special "Love is Evol," which is all about how Crazy Makes You Crazy, had a few really good moments.
    • "Oh no, we're totally cool now. He stopped using the aluminum bat on me. I hated that noise. Ting, ting, ting, ting."
    • "I filed for divorce on June 6th, '06. (audience groans) 6-6-6! Yeah, which, coincidentally, turned my ex into a fire-breathing demon from the bowels of Satan's anus... but for legal reasons, I have to call her "Kate."
    • Titus' reaction to hearing his father's story of how Titus was conceived note : "Wow..." (twitches slightly): "That's just like the story of Christmas."
    • When he gives his list of what men secretly haaaaate about women. In order: how emotional women are ("I guarantee you, I have never had a conversation with another man that went like this: 'Hey dude, where do you want to go for lunch?' 'I AM NOT MY MOTHER!'"), having to meet their family (complete with an explanation of the "Douchebag Test"), and — above all else — capri pants.
      • Meeting the family deserves to be elaborated upon, because of the family member that's just a little too close, which is especially creepy when it's Grandma, complete with threats to drug you, put you in a ditch, then pour lye on your unconscious body.
    • And, when talking about his new relationship - "That's not the worst part."
  • During the first part of Neverlution when he names off all the bad events that happened between 2001 and 2011 (9/11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, George W. Bush's election and re-election, the BP oil spill, "talentless sluts" like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardashian becoming popular, Haiti's earthquake, Osama bin Laden finally getting caught — at the risk of two pointless wars, a high body count of soldiers, and an extremely high deficit, and Toyota recalling faulty cars) while imitating a recovering addict who realized what happened in ten years and became violently ill over it.
    • Also from Neverlution: Calling out Lady Gaga as a sign that mediocrity is being seen as excellence (and the reason why real music is dead in 2011), describing her as a "midget Madonna mini-me," proof that David Bowie raped Caroll Brunett, and his lines that she doesn't have the right to call herself "not accepted" when she gets a billion hits on YouTube, nor is she an artist because she can turn a live chimpanzee into a bra.
  • In Voice in My Head, Titus details a story about his friend, comic Mike Aronin, who has cerebral palsy. While going out to breakfast, the waitress asked Titus what Mike was ordering, assuming Mike could not do it himself because of his CP appearance. Titus thought Mike would defend himself, but instead, he saw "Satan in his eyes" as Mike would spend the next ninety minutes "destroying this girl's psyche" by "turning up the disability 3000%" and making her life hell knocking over dishes and glasses purposefully in an exaggerating disabled manner. As Titus collapsed laughing outside after the ordeal:
    Chris: Dude, that's the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life.
    Mike ("dead serious"): That bitch deserved it.
