Hot pockets!!! His best bit ever!

Top five for me are definitely...
Dane Cook
Russell Peters
George Carlin
Robin Williams
Blue Collar Boys

I really can't pick one, as they all have different styles that I find hilarious.

Artie Lange


I've been wanting to see one of his shows, and of course the first time he gets anywhere close to Atlanta, I'm going to be on the other side of the country. He's doing a show in Lakeland, Florida one of the nights I'm in Vegas in March.

Honestly, I don't find female comedians (or ennes) very funny.

One of my faves is Dave Chappell. I nearly split my side open during a bit where he imitated Snoop Dog.

As far as old school, I do like George Carlin.

Seinfeld was very funny in his sitcom, but I don't think he's as funny as a monologue performer.
