My son, who is 8, listens obsessively to the BBC broadcasts of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy — every day, sometimes for hours. He also loves Bill Cosby's standup records, and just now he listened to the Nick Danger side of Firesign Theatre's How Can You Be In Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All, and loved it. (Side One mostly alienated him.)
I think he likes the density of allusion, the chance to listen over and over and get more each time.
On the other hand, he's very sensitive and averse to anything ominous or scary sounding, and he found Bob Newhart boring to the point of becoming enraged. So it goes.
What more might he like?
