View Full Version : Favorite Comedians

I'm a huge fan of standup comedy and I was wondering who you guys think is the best standup comedian of all time. Also, who are some of your current favorites?

I think Bill Hicks is the best comedian of all time with Richard Pryor in second and maybe Rodney Dangerfield in third. If there are any Tool fans who haven't heard of Bill Hicks then you're really missing out, he's Maynard's biggest influence. As far as currently living, I'd say Jerry Seinfeld or maybe Chris Rock.

Currently, I think this guy named Rich Williams is really fucking hilarious but he doesn't get much exposure at all for some reason. David Cross, Nick Swardson, Jim Gaffigan, and Doug Benson are all really funny as well. I find Dane Cook extremely annoying and overrated.

Thoughts?

My favs are RW, Dave Chappelle and the Kids in the Hall troupe. All of which I have seen and have been amazed by.

Ediie Izzard's live show is disappointing and I was definitely not amused.

Although I agree with Randy's post, I nevertheless suffer from the list making syndrome at times.

As such, I'm going to recommend anyone in Los Angeles go see the Upright Citizens Brigade at their theatre in Los Feliz. Asssscat, their improv show on saturdays and sundays, is the best fucking comedy in the world.

Actually it's more like "hey someone might list a name I don't know and I ought to go look them up" or "why the fuck is he/she listing that comedian? he/she sucks! I'm going to give my opinion about that comedian!" or "that comedian is under appreciated and I'm glad someone else other than me mentioned them in this context" or something else.

I feel like simply listing something would never attract my attention. Give me a valuable description, a recommendation, a rant or a diatribe, something that would convince me that this is worth my time and (potentially) money.

Dane Cook is really funny, and if you are on the hate train instead of the Dane Train then you're in denial and against anything successful. I bet if Mitch Hedberg were alive today he'd be as popular as Dane and you'd hate him as well. Dane tells stories, and they are funny because they are true...that's why they're funny, because they're true.

because of his extreme success as a comedian. also, his value is very high. a friend of mine that books entertainment acts including comedians for her university told me that they can't afford him, but can afford other people, who in my opinion, are much much funnier than him.

Carlos Mencia is hit and miss. His main problem is that his material is the same every season. His show is just a bunch of repeats. Usually some form of racism involving illegal immigrants.

Ok, it was funny for the first season. 3 years later, time to find something new.

stop sucking his dick so hard. he's never going to like you, or be nice to you.

also doesnt he have you on ignore anyways? you're embarrassing yourself... If you consider that post as sucking his dick, then you suck dick wrong and should be the embarrassed one. Just my thought.

Steven Wright. Brilliant.

Dane Cook. Not funny.

and of course I can't forget about Dave Chappelle. Seen him many times and he's always great. I love when he starts ripping on Carlos Mencia. One night Robin Williams shows up at one of Dave's shows unannounced and jumps up on stage and they trade off jokes all night. Hilarious. Mos Def got up on stage with them too at one point.

Eddie Murphy

Dov Davidoff (just discovered him and love what I've heard)

NEIL HAMBURGER!!! One time I saw him open for Iron & Wine and Calexico. Seeing people yell at him him and throw shit at him is so funny. I don't think I've ever seen so much hatred. Either the worst or the best comedian of all time. I'm not sure yet.

I saw Neil Hamburger open a huge show at the Gibson. People were booing and screaming and throwing things. Someone threw beer on him and Neil said, "You just earned yourself 30 more minutes of comedy."

Dead silence from the audience. Hilarious!
