It has been many, many years since I've seen comedy live.

Larry David though. Long, long before Seinfeld. Thought he was wonderful. I was
doing an article on Improv comics and he is the the one I featured because his comedy was just so much smarter and odder than everyone else's.

Would love to see Robin Williams. Eddie Murphy. Louis CK. I'm just lazy. I mean really lazy.

How much is a Louis CK show in the States? It was over $80 in Sydney I think. I'd love to see him live but I have a real problem with paying more than $40 for live comedy.

I'm a huge fan of Jason Byrne but he's charging in excess of $50 now. No matter really, I achieved my goal of being brought onstage for one of his shows.

Got to see Louie for about $45. His "cutting the middle man" business model is what levied the costs; not sure if other comics at his level of popularity have tickets as affordable.

The Just for Laughs (JFL42) is coming back to Toronto if anyone is interested and in the area. The headliner was better last year (Louis), but it's all the other acts throughout the week that really make it a fun event.
Basically, you buy a ticket to see the headliner, then are given 4 credits to redeem at any of the 42 other acts throughout the week. After you see an act, you get your credit back and can put it toward another.
This years headliners are Aziz Ansari, Sara Silverman, and "Family Guy Live". Not the most exciting (I picked Sara Silverman as Aziz is the unfunniest man on the planet), and so far have reserved spots for Bill Burr, Andy Kindler (usually a multi-comic show with him), Hannibal Buress, and Janeane Garofalo (last one wasn't my choice). They still have about 30 more comics yet to announce too. Marc Maron will probably be the next I reserve.
Not sure it will reach the heights of last year, but it should still be fun. It would be hard to top the list I saw at last year's though:

Louis CK twice
Patton Oswalt
Amy Shumer
Todd Barry
Todd Glass
Andy Kindler
James Adomian
Pete Holmes
J Kamau Bell

Oh and a pass is $100. Not bad considering

Dude, please go see Sam Simmons. He's on the 21st and 22nd according to the site. Aussie dude and his absurdist humour is some of the funniest, most unique shit I've ever seen.

Also don't miss Set List, watching established, genuinely funny comedians doing improv is thrilling. I think I saw it three times at MICF this year alone.

That's pretty cool.

Aziz Ansari is even less funny than Dane Cook. That's quite the achievement that I didn't even think possible.

Saw Aziz last year at The Comedy Cellar in NYC. He was unannounced so at first it was pretty cool and exciting, but that soon faded. Dude was road testing new material off his iPhone, lame and unfunny.

Louis CK was also a surprise at the Sydney JFL a couple if years ago, amazing.

Ed Byrne is very, very funny, seen him a couple if times.

You would be amazed at who you can see on a random Tuesday night at the Comedy Cellar.

....even if you take it to mean alive, you still have to answer which you think was the best. The question wasn't "which comedians have you seen live". Goddammit, wannabe

Aziz is cool, you guys.

Be on Parks and Rec for like five years and then come talk to me.

I've tried to watch the first episode of that show twice now, and can't. It's too painfully unfunny.
