Who's some of your favorite stand up comics ?

50 posts in this topic

My top three would be in this order Mitch Hedberg (One of the funniest comics ever) 2, Robert Schimmel 3. Steven Wright... Also a fan of Joe Rogan & Carlin.  I'm a stage manager for a comedy club on the strip. I have a whole slew of favorites that I'm sure you've never heard of them :) Although, from blue collar of comedy Ron White has done guest spots the last two nights on our stage. He's a extremely cool guy.

Old school: George Carlin New School: Louis CK Tons of other guys I really like but these two are stand outs to me.

John Pinette.

He's good, but a little too one dimensional, IMO. ;) My favorite, far and away, is Brian Regan. The guy is never not funny. Also like Louis CK, Bill Burr and John Mulaney, among others.

Yeah, he's a bit of a one trick pony, but funnier than hell.

I agree with a lot of the ones mentioned above.  I would add Jimmy Tingle a Boston comedian.  He has always been funny.  And I would add Jay Leno, the stand up.  My wife and I saw him years ago and he was terrific.

I've been listening to stand up on Pandora in the car lately, and another guy I've only recently learned about that I find pretty danged funny is Hannibal Buress.  Check him out!

FWIW, Spotify has TONS of standup. Netflix has some too. Nick Thune has a new hour that just went up on Netflix that's pretty good My full list would be huge, so here are a few of my recent favorites: [LIST] [*] Mike Birbiglia's recent album is awesome. Great storytelling. [*] Pete Holmes. Saw him live a few months ago. Really good. [*] John Mulaney. [*] Hannibal Buress. [*] Bo Burnham. One of the better musical comedians. [*] Wyatt Cenac. [*] Michael Che [*] Nikki Glaser. [*] Ben Kronberg. Very similar in style to Stephen Wright. [*] Anyone but Kevin Hart. [/LIST] That last one is big. Wait...

Mike Birbiglia

Yes, this guy is also hilarious.  Among other things, I love his story about running into a bear in Alaska.  Couldn't find it on youtube but did find this gem:

Wyatt Cenac? I think I watched John Oliver's standup on Netflix or HBO. He's much better doing the fake anchor thing. Wasn't bad, but not great.
