Can I vote too? I don’t see how you can leave Charles McCarry off the list of great humor writers. His last two books, “Old Boys” and “Lucky Bastard,” are among the brilliant satires ever. And surely Jack Benny qualifies as a world-class straight man, doesn’t he? And my personal nominee for funniest movie is “The Ladykillers,” the original, with Alec Guiness and the whole crowd of whacko Brits, Terry Thomas, Herbert Lom, etc. etc. etc.
