    I watched his special a couple weeks ago and it was really good. He may run out of material fast though. I don't know how many more sexual jokes are left to be discovered.

    I saw him live a few times...me and my girlfriend always sit up front and he recognizes us everytime and busts my balls for knowing all his jokes. And spends the whole night trying to get my girlfriend to show him her panties. [​IMG]

    but yeah, I first saw him about 10 years ago...and his act still uses some of the same jokes.[​IMG]

    How has no one fucking mentioned Zach Galifianakis? One of my favorite entertainment icons period, not just out of comedians.

    This +1000



    An improv show but well worth the watch none the less, ASSSSCAT by the Upright Citizen's Brigade is a great chemistry of castmembers. There is one Netflix Instant.

    Josh Thomas - Australian, gay, awkward manchild sort. Embarasssing, whimsical stories sort of comedy. Funny in some weird cute way that makes me feel a little gay.

    Stephen K Amos - Brit. Saw him live couple of years ago. Bloody good time, although He recycles some of his jokes.

    Ross Noble - Another Brit. Saw him live last year. Insanely funny. Quick-witted, random, quirky. Can easily do improv and it a large part of each show. One of the funniest guys I've ever seen. He spent the first 30minutes of last year's show just quoting lines from Bohemian Rhapsody in between random talks about insects and other random nonsense and it was somehow bloody hilarious. As funny as Bill Bailey I say. Maybe even more. I have a friend who also saw him last year on a different day and aparantly much of her show was completely different from mine aside from the set Avatar bits.

    Watched the fairly recent George Carlin NYC show this weekend. Still can nail the bullshit hilariously. The intro is fucking amazing,-

    I saw Baron Vaughn at the Laughing Skull in ATL, didn't really know much about him going in, but I'm glad I went. Very funny, kind of weird and conceptual too if that's your thing.

    Russell Peters because of his DDR joke, from there I was hooked.

    Just watched Louis CK for the first time 2 days ago, awesome.

    Gaffigan is pretty funny. His routines should be really annoying but the guy just deadpans so well that he sells it.

    It's a shame that nobody's mentioned Paul Mooney. Even before he did Negrodamus, he was the genius behind Homey da Clown and wrote jokes for Richard Pryor. His standup beats everyone hands down.

    I am a fan of Tim Minchin, even though he's more of a musician than a comedian.

    those 3 are all great, the suck a bag of dicks from louis is hilarious. ive watched hours of hedberg on youtube it never gets old. and between two ferns is awkward comedy at its best

    my favorite album has got to be seinfelds "Im telling you for the last time" funny shit

    but my favorite to watch are craig fergusons monologues. he cracks me up every time. very unique in my opinion.

    edit: daniel tosh is also amazing


    Louis CK is a f'ng riot... 1st time I watched his HBO special I missed half the jokes from laughing so hard at the previous ones.... agree w/ Tosh as well. I didn't get his schtick at 1st but he really is on the edge of irreverance and takes the "offend everyone" approach. It's great to really REALLY laugh out loud!!!! [​IMG]

    Jim Gaffigan's new hour is awesome considering how clean the content is (as usual). $5 direct download.

    I've got a whole new appreciation for Godrey. I've always liked his stuff but he is great live. Went to see him tonight and because it was the only show of the evening, he went on for 2.5 hours. Jaw fucking hurts for laughing so long
