Favorite Stand-up Comedian
 
I really like Mitch hedberg and and Dmitri Martin(I like that delivery style).

I saw the new Chris Rock standup, which was pretty hilarious. Also Bob Saget is absolutely hilarious in stand-up.

Pryor's the legend for me... for current guys, I really like Chappelle and Russell Peters. And Dane Cook is horrrrrible!

Chapelle is great. I also really like Lisa Lampinelli and Robert Schimmel.

Man it is hard to pick one. There are a lot of guys who do great work. Most have one awesome set and then just regular funny stuff. To me Chris Rock's first HBO special is seminal while his latter stuff is just funny. Lewis Black seems to bring the fastball as consistently as anyone in my opinion.

Rock
Black
Robin Wlliams
Eddie Murphy
Cosby
Izzard
There are tons..

I'd say Black is at the top of my list simply because he has more sets that are just awesome to me. Plenty of people have one real good set but that's it.

I agree, Peters is good and Cook is terrible. Can't go wrong with the classics either.

Not to kill your buzz here Hoo, but there was a thread with the exact same title created a while back.

[url]http://www.thewarpath.net/parking-lot/22760-favorite-stand-up-comedian.html[/url]

As soon as I saw this thread I was thinking deja vu.

But since I like the topic at hand, I'd just like to say that I pretty much like any comedian that has ever done a show for Comedy Central. I've never been to any live comedy shows so that and HBO/ w/e are pretty much where I get my stand up from.

I also like Dane Cook's stand up but I still think he's a douche lol.

George Carlin for past greats. I don't know that any stand out for me nowadays.

People seem to love or hate Dane Cook, personally I love him. Also love Hedberg, what a shame.

I like the storytelling of Bill cosby and Bob Newhart. I liked Richard Jeni as well the couple of times I saw him live. RIP to Mr. Jeni

Black is hilarious, I've seen him a few times live and he never disappoints.

Strange. You didn't seem like a teenage girl when I met you. ;)

You know I've seen my share, but I just keep coming back to Chris Rock. I think it's his facial expressions and intonation and what not. But the dude is funny. I remmeber during one routine, Rock must have dropped the f bomb at least a hundred times.

Oh, and Margaret Cho...whew buddy! Korean chick? She is funny as shit! Her impersonations of her mom are funny as hell. Someone should post a YouTube of her.

Re: Favorite Stand-up Comedian
 
^^ Can't go wrong with Rock, and yeah I agree Cho is pretty damn funny
