Hashimoto's Insomnia: Dealing with Sleeplessness with Humor & Our Favorite Clean Comedians

If you suffer from autoimmune disorders, you know it can be very difficult to get a good night's rest. It can take hours to fall asleep and then when you do get to sleep and wake up, you find that the lack of sleep has brought on a flare. 

Comedy stage

It is definitely a balancing act to fall asleep some nights. One of the ways I attempt to settle in for the night is to listen to a short comedy set. Laughing is good for you and it helps to take your mind off of any stressors. I usually just pick a clean comedian from youtube and drift off to sleep while it is playing. I turn off autoplay, so it doesn't play on and on and wake me up later. And I try to pick those with few ads, so the difference in sound doesn't jar me awake either.

If you aren't sure where to start, here's a list of our favorite comedians. All of these comedians have made us laugh out loud and some of them have brought us to tears. Several of them have landed in our family quote dialogue from time to time.

Nate Bargatze-Nate is a clean comedian whose style has landed him a bit on SNL. In our state, he sold out so quickly for his most recent show, they opened another day.

Brandon Farris- We really like his early stuff, especially his openings and initial google translates. His most recent stuff is not very appropriate or very clean. If you go 3 years back or more, you should find his really good classic videos.

Jim Gaffigan-It's hard to believe he has as much material as he does. He has so many unique bits up. He's a bit of a genius at coming up with new stuff. He does occasionally throw in a profanity or make a lewd comment, but it is seldom.

Tim Hawkins-Tim is a Christian comedian that has had us in tears with some of his bits. All clean.

Mark Laury-Mark is another Christian comedian with clean bits. He has been part of the Gaither Gospel Band and some of his comedy sets are during concerts. 

Jeannie Robertson-Jeannie Robertson was a clean comedian that tells a lot of jokes based on life. 

We have a list of Dry Bar Comedians that we've found to be particularly funny. We typically stick to the shows on Dry Bar for this list as a lot of the folks aren’t clean otherwise, but clean up their shows for the club. I've listed them alphabetically here.

Jeff Allen
Drew Allen
Drew Barth
Cam Bertrand
Josh Blue
Berry Brewer
David Crowe
Kellen Erskine
Matt Falk-Matt's style is really energetic and winning. His bit about visiting England is wonderful.
Zoltan Kaszas-Zoltan's dry bar stuff is clean and really, really funny. If you search for bits not on dry bar though, they won't be clean.
Fred Klett-Love his bits on growing up in a big family.

Robert Mac-His first one is our favorite. He has a very unique style.
Moody Molavi
Leanne Morgan-Leanne is so funny. Her mean teenage girl set is great.

Dustin Nickerson-Love his why his marriage works explanations.
Josh Novey
Michael Palascak
Dwayne Perkins
Andy Peters
Christian Pieper
Mark Poolos
Dennis Reagan
Corey Rodrigues
Cleto Rodriguez
Tommy Ryman
Jose Sarduy
Marty Simpson
Kabir Singh
Shayne Smith-This ex-gang member is hilarious. He can take one story and turn it into a 30 minute show.

Josh Sneed
Chad Thornsberry-He's onto something with the puzzle story.
Tim Young
Alex Velluto
Brandon Vestal-His republicans in the attic bit...hilarious. 
Jonnie W
Greg Warren-His deadpan style translates amazingly with his delivery.

Bengt Washburn-The shed bit is outstanding.

Andy Woodhull-Lazy teenagers, being a step-dad, and popcorn butter fingernail polish. :)
