Someone who tells jokes for a living
I love a variety of comedians.
Depending on the types of jokes and the manner in which they present them, the rare breed called "comedians" is one of the most intelligent types of people you will ever find inhabiting the planet. In a school classroom situation they are always the bright smart arses in the top class.
Anyone can tell a joke, but to tell a good, witty and tasteful joke is truly a rare gift. The people who possess this gift are comedians.
Someone who tells jokes. You have to learn a long time to be a good comedian.
