Your Favs Stand-up Comedians

Fri Oct 03, 2003 2:09 pm

Who are your favorite stand-up comedians? Mines are:

Joe Rogan ("Oral sex is healthy" I laughed so hard I got a stomachache).
John Leguizamo (hilarious latin dude).
Jerry Seinfield is sometimes quiet simple but he's ok.
George Carlin (you've got to hear his "Airline Announcements" and "High on the plane" Freaking great.

Now you tell me yours...

Opps, didn't see that you brought up Robin.

You know it is funny but I never used to think that Dennis Miller was that funny, but I have been starting to warm up to his stuff over the past couple of years, and Tonight Show appearances.

Dennis Miller is pretty deep in some of his comedy. He's not for the average Joe who doesn't know what's going on in the world.  Smile

IMO, I find Carlin to be along the lines of Dice Clay. I like Dice, but i get tired of him quick. And I find Robin Williams annoying. I'd much rather check out Steve Martin.

I have always thought that Paula Poundstone was one of the funniest stand up comedians ever.

Margaret Cho, she's hilarious. If you've never seen her work try renting "I'm the One that I Want" or "Notorious C.H.O."

By FAR, Margaret Cho. She is absolutely hilarious, especially when she speaks like her mother, (A Korean speaking English).

Do the guys/gals on "Whose Line Is It Anyway" count? If so, I'll add Colin Mochrie and Greg Proops to my list.

(I know, my list is weird.....it's Friday, what do you expect?)

Graham Norton is good Big thumbs up He's not so good on V Graham Norton as he used to be, but when he's put on a stage with an audience he's great!


He's the one on the right Big thumbs up

Denis Leary. "No Cure For Cancer" is still funny, even after 10 years.
