Dear 100 Hour Board,
You know the kind of people who are just naturally funny? I don't mean the ones that just know a lot of good jokes or that just have great sense of humor (though both statements probably apply to them). I'm referring to the kind of people that almost seem to radiate funniness. I'm having a hard time explaining this, so... hopefully you know what I'm talking about. Just the kind of person where things start to seem funnier just because they're around. And while they do make funny jokes, and have a good sense of humor, it's more than that. It's like being who they are amplifies their own jokes, and even other people's jokes. Things are just funnier when they're around.
So I guess my first question is, do you know what I'm talking about?
And my second question is, why? What is it that makes those people glow with funniness? And can it be learned?

Robin Williams was possibly one of the funniest, most constructive comedians out there.
It apparently came at a great cost.
This question kind of reminds me of both Ardilla and Frère, who are both truly very funny. I think a big part of it is kindness - from my experience, their humour is never aimed to tear people down and they make people feel great even when they aren't being funny. I think that helps other people to feel really comfortable. Also, they both seem to find/insert humour in regular life, which makes their subject matter virtually limitless.
