I'm sorry, I couldn't figure out which forum to post this in.
So who's your favorite Stand-up comedian? Mine's Jerry Seinfeld. He's just great.
I also like Dane Cook.
George Carlin's fine as well - after a while, it's just the same thing over and over but it's still good.
Saw him couple of days ago, great on DVD
Russel Peters is hilarious. He's the only Indian stand-up comedian I know.
John Leguazamo used to be pretty good.
I love stand up comedians
Eddie Murphy was good when he was still doing stand up, Sam Kinnison was brilliant
Dane Cook is good
Tim Allen's stand up before he started doing TV was really good
Ron White is much wittier than you would expect
I just noticed I don't have any female comedians (comediannes?) on my list, someone suggest some women please.
my favourite standups are
Ed Byrne (ireland), Arj Barker (usa), Stephen K Amos (england), Adam Hilles (australia)
Oh and George Carlin when he was alive was one of the funniest men going around
Jeff Foxworthy is pretty good value too
I agree on Russel Peters, that guy's amazing. Also, Ricky Gervais, his bible bit is hilarious!
I have not seen many stand up comedians but I think russell peter is also really good. He has some very good jokes.
does anyone not agree with me with lee evans been one of the funniest comedians up to date?
Russell Peters is definitely my favourite comedian because he deals with serious issues such as racism and childhood upbringing. The guy who does "ahmed the dead terrorist" is pretty good too.
I like the old guys too ... George Carlin (may he rest in peace) was absolutely phenomenal.
I saw Robin Williams in concert once, and he was absolutely amazing. Such a quick mind, but I think he kind of burnt out.
Lily Tomlin is an incredible comedienne and really under-rated.
And by far my fave right now is Stephen Wright. His take on life is completely absurd and his dead-pan delivery is unbelievable.
Eddie Izzard. Only comedian I have ever liked, wouldn't be surprised if he's the only one I ever will like. Most tick me off with their incessant douche-baggery.
My favourite all time has to be Billy Connolly.... a slightly acquired taste perhaps.... but his sense of humour is definitely in tune with mine.
Current favourites are Russell Howard, Dara O'Briain (sp?) and Frankie Boyle - kind of makes "Mock the Week" a MUST watch for me !!!
Demetri Martin for sure. Surprised he hasn't been mentioned at all yet. I just like that he is really smart and makes short jokes that are really clever. His TV show is pretty good
I like Jeremy Hotz, Russell Peters and a whole bunch of others that escape me right now. I also like the older comedy of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams and Tim Allen.
