    What are your favorite comedy specials of the year?

    Right now I got:

    1. Rory Scovel - Tries Stand-Up For the First Time
    2. Sarah Silverman - A Speck Of Dust
    3. Hasan Minhaj - Homecoming King
    4. Neal Brennan - 3 Mics

    Looking forward to checking out these soon:

    Bill Burr - Walk Your Way Out
    Joe Mande's Award-Winning Comedy Special

    Jerrod Carmichael - 8

    I'm sure I'm still missing a few that I need to check out.

    Chris Gethard - Career Suicide and TJ Miller - Meticulously Ridiculous were both pretty good. Gethard's was more one man monologue with some jokes but still funny and very affecting. Both were on HBO.

    I liked that one and Carmichael's the most so far this year but I'm only half way through Birbiglia's Thank God for Jokes and haven't watched Hasan's yet. But both of those have potential.

    Bill Burr and Louis' were both good but definitely not their best work. Neal Brennan's was good as well and I appreciate that some of these guys are trying to switch up the format.

    Both the Hasan Minaj and Jerrod Carmichael specials were fantastic. Also I can't really say which I enjoyed more cause I watched them one after the other on the day they were released (thus they both blur together in my mind some), but Dave Chappelle's Netflix specials are worth a watch.
