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.

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.

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.

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
