+1 on Delirious, but Raw was a colossal disappointment, IMO. Pound for pound, I actually think Chris Rock's first two standup shows -- Bring the Pain and Bigger and Blacker -- were far better than Delirious and Raw, it's just that it's sacrilege to say that since it's Eddie freakin Murphy we're talking about. I compare it to when people talk about the greatest dunkers ever. Almost everyone says Jordan, but I mean, come on -- did you see Vince Carter in the 2000 dunk contest? We all know it's Vince. We just can't say it because it's an affront to something/someone so classic. George Carlin's "Euphemisms" bit is probably my favorite of all-time and should be required listening for all writers, as far as I'm concerned. At the very least, the folks who work for airlines should listen to it, if only to change the ridiculous terms "preboard" and "nonstop flight." "No, I insist that my flight stop!" There are too many hilarious Mitch Hedberg quotes to list, but I always liked this one: "The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how good I get, I'll never be as good as a wall. I played a wall once -- they're fucking relentless." By the way, all you Demetri Martin fans know his name is Demetri
