Stand-Up Comemedian   (+4, -2)  [vote for, against]
A performer of trite memes.

The Stand-Up Comemedian takes the stage before the applauding crowd, readies the microphone, and begins the bit.

The crowd goes silent long enough to hear the first pop-culture reference and again explodes as if on cue in a chorus of applause and guffaws.

You're describing British pantomime

Comedy already does this, essentially. A lot of it involves them taking our behavioral patters, which are memes, and exposing said patterns with exaggerated impressions, all memetic themselves.

Maybe a comedian could revolve his act around some drab sarcastic display of delicately interwoven memetic entendre, as if not even noticing his prowess. That might be funny. It's probably called Stephen Wright.

Wrong. Are you playing Straight Man to my Funny Man idea?

In Dame Edna Everage's case you might call her/him an "All About Me"-memedian, if you can stand it.

This is a very average idea with nothing but the standard deviations.
