Who's some of your favorite stand up comics ?

Recommended Posts

Lesterday    5

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.

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...

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.

    • Not sure if we disagree on any point, was just agreeing it becomes more mental as you get better.  I've played a lot of sports in my life, tennis seriously through high school and competed d1 in college (for those that will accept this as I was a runner).  And even in running, it's hard for me to say that mental game was not of paramount importance when in competition. Agree that if you didn't get your body to the physical state (including muscle memory) to compete, you were already out... but I've personally witnessed (myself, opponents, teammates) so many fails/losses due to the mental game it's hard for me to completely discount it w/ a clear conscience.  And I'm not just talking any-given-sunday... but over seasons as well.
    • You guys are lucky.  I actually enjoy practicing.  Chipping and Putting games etc.  I don't mind hitting the same club over and over and workin on things.  I just have ZERO time now to practice.. lol  My time is now hitting into my net for 20 minutes or so or chipping balls into a hula hoop working on distance control.  Maybe once a week away from the house
    • To the OP.... I'm just as you are, kinda of torn between yes they should change it & no keep it the same..but I say keep it the way it is. My reason is the 2nd part of your answer in your original question, for me it wouldn't be exciting to see the 29th or 30th ranked guy win & thus be rewarded for 1 great weekend & that being the last in the Tour Championship, when it's a great possibility he didn't even win a tournament all season. I can live with it being the way it is, after all nothing in life is perfect so all we can do is go with what makes it the closest to the best, and it is imho.
    • John Daly never won the Masters. And he was having problems well before he won the PGA… or the British Open. Golf is almost entirely physical. You have to be world-class physically before your mental game can even matter. If you're not world class physically, you'll never even GET to the PGA Tour. And you need to be a 6.5-index physically before you shoot like a 6.5 index. If you blow up in tournaments, yeah, you've got some mental work to do… but you're still a 6.5 index because of how you swing and hit the ball and putt and chip, etc. Between peers, the mental game is a sliver of a separator. But sometimes at the highest level that's all it takes. Other times, you can be so good physically (see also Dustin Johnson) that you can be a stooge and still win.
    • I admit, it's mostly a memory from me, but I'll ask my Dad his name to google him.  But the thought still remains, aren't there a lot of guys that can routinely throw up mid sixties in tournament conditions on varied courses, but still can't ever get anything going on the Web.com? Maybe the guy I am recalling was a head case, but my guess would have been there's a crapload of these same head cases that are trying to qualify for either the web.com or pga. Is John Daly's success and problems physical or mental?  I'm thinking particularly after he won the masters.
