Yeah, I just got done addressing the claim about the French liking Jerry Lewis because they're anti-semitic above. I don't buy it. Unlike say, Woody Allen, I don't really see the jewishness playing into Jerry's act at all. It was always much more that he's an idiot, race, religion and creed aside.

Yeah, I like Lewis Black a lot. His rants on the Daily Show remind me much of my ranting and raving here.

I wonder about the comedian warrior idea.

Jon Stewart doesn't so much do the self depreciation thing, and is pretty direct in his attacks on the forces of foolishness.

sure he does... just not as much as say a Conan O'Brien. His self-deprecation mostly centers around his pretenses that his show sucks and his lack of belief in himself as a journalist.

Also, Stewart is pretty know for making jew jokes on his show, relying on stereotypes and making fun of holidays and customs. He's obviously far less jew-centric than Woody Allen, but I'd say he's more so than Seinfeld, and certainly Jerry Lewis.

Also, I'm not sure how to tie it in just now, but its worth noting that he doesn't use his real last name (Leibowitz). Presumedly, because its too ethnic, but I don't really know that.
