Least favorite comedians were the extremely pc ones...like those hillbillies or ventriloquist types.

Not a big fan of very dirty jokes either-though i liked the dirtiest of them all.

Dangerfield was always funny.

Good comedy is something people can connect to.

Never tried it. I have been told in the past tht I am funny-but its always at a time when i a, not trying to be funny.

I think that most comedians are lazy and go for sex jokes way way too often. I recently saw Tom Segura's Netflix special though and that had me laughing. One of the best I've ever seen. Definitely a unique comedian.

IMO dave chappelle is the greatest of all time.  love mitch hedberg and louis CK.  as far as newer comics go i'm a fan of kumail nanjiani.  i like a lot of conceptual comedy more than stand up these days though.  I.E. comedy bang bang and eric andre


when zach galifianakis was still working i thought he was friggin hilarious too.

 

freaking love tim and eric. and steven brody stevens

I think joe rogan is a god awful comedian... I like his podcast (sometimes... When he listens and doesn't interrupt constantly) but can't stand his stand up. He puts on some weird high pitched voice, I couldn't watch any of his specials for more than 10-15 mins even when I forked out the $5 for one...

Louis C.K is God right now imo. No one on his level currently.

Jim Jeffries I like. He's extremely vulgar and offensive but often in a smart/articulate/satirical way. It's not just dirty for the sake of shock value although a lot of his material is shocking to a wider audience.

Micky Flanagan is also one of my favourites. I love his life commentary, highly relatable as I get older. Lots of marriage and social situation jokes.

I like Adam Carollas books. Not a fan of his podcasts so much, he rambles to much and repeats himself. People find him an arrogant douche but I think he's a funny guy and his life advice is actually pretty solid for the most part (work hard, take responsibility for your situation and forget about "luck" etc).

Dave Chappelle, Eddie Murphy and Louis C.K are probably my top 3 of all time.

comedy was my first love,  I was quoting monty python at like 2, doing Letterman impressions at 5. I've done it, it's like surfing, you just go out there and try and catch the optimal crest of the room so you can get carried til the end of your set. I'm turning 21 in about a week, so I think I'll go do open mics, I tried pretty hard when I was 14-16 to get to do shows in Portland but got nothing but shut down, and watching the shitty Comedy Central presents every night, I just lost faith - we're going through another 80s comedy drought. Turned to the beats and rhymes

 

Mitch Hedberg was my first guy, then he died in March of 05. Carson died in January a week after I went through old VHS tapes of his. Then Pryor died in December. This on top of Bush getting reelected, I decided fuck it and went back inside to listening to music

 

 

Lenny Bruce, Carlin, Pryor, Bill Hicks and other Outlaw comedians like Ron Shock, guys who ran on O&A (Jim Norton, Louis CK, Patrice O'Neal). The Koreatown Oddity actually started off as a stand-up comedian.

 

People in here might want to check out Daniel Kitson, he's like the underground version of stand-up. Eugene Mirman took him on tour.

 

Then also I like sketch comedy like Kids in the Hall, and The State. Mr. Show, Whitest Kids U Know. Your Tim and Erics, Eric Andres, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Burress, Kyle Kinane, Patton Oswalt and his Comedians of Comedy tour was fantastic.

 

Obviously legends like Steven Wright, Woody Allen, Mort Sahl's, Penn & Teller's, hell sprinkle in some Amazing Johnathan and Stephen Lynch, or even Liam Lynch.

I think Chappelle's probably the GOAT, or Bill Hicks - but Chappelle is much better at working genuine laughs out. Bill Hicks is more like Terence Mckenna or something, same as Lenny Bruce

 

 

fun story, my brief college stay, I saw John Mulaney get heckled by some kid going "chirp chirp," he was like 'you know, usually hecklers don't get to me, but that's really bothering me"

 

lo and behold, his sitcom's belly up
