Favorite Stand-up Comedian

Discussion in 'Off-Topic' started by Sighclone Fan, Dec 20, 2010.

  1. I like humor, and want to know what everyones favorite stand-up comedian is?

    My personal favorite performance is Dave Chappelle's "For What It's Worth"

    Eddie Murphy "Delirious", laugh so hard I cry every time I watch it. Close second is the late Bill Hicks. If he doesn't die, nobody cares who Dennis Leary is.

    I was about to post that Larry Reeb aka "Uncle Lar" was my favorite. Have seen him live 3 or 4 times now, dude is funny as hell and pretty perverted/vulgar at times.

    Here's an old clip that is a good "tame" example of his show

    Gaffigan or Tosh.

    I probably haven't laughed at a stand-up special as hard as I laughed at Aziz Ansari's "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening" special. Freaking hilarious.

    Also, Rob Riggle had a pretty dang good "Comedy Central Presents..." 30 minute special as well recently.

    Dane Cook (Yes I like him, some of his stuff is a bit overrated, but overall I find him really funny)
    Daniel Tosh
    Jim Gaffigan
    Steve Byrne

    When I've been extremely intoxicated, comedy central had Bob Saget on, and we found him hilarious, it may have been more of how awkward he is on stage and how drunk we were though.

    Gabriel Iglesias, Dr. Denis Leary, Bill Cosby. And I don't know how much stand-up Amy Sedaris does, but every time she's on some talk show she just cracks my **** up.

    George Carlin is hands down my fave. Bill Burr is good, I also like Pablo Fransico. I like Tosh's stand up but his show got old about 2 episodes in.

    Nick's First Comedy Central show is the funniest 30 minutes I have ever seen on there.
