Well it's almost universally agreed upon that the first season was fairly ordinary. It came into its own in season two and has been close to stellar ever since.

Probably just Howard Borden and Glen Quagmire.

There are some great stand up shows on netflix right now (watch Bill Burr, You People Are All the Same, if you haven't already. The Norm MacDonald special is really funny too).
But please avoid the Demetri Martin special. Jesus Christ is it unfunny. The worst part of all is the audience was so obviously coached before the show to laugh extra hard. They crack up and clap for some moderately amusing shit.

I just recently watched all 3 of the Bill Burr specials on Netflix. All were enjoyable.

I think I watched part of that. I shut it off about 10 minutes in wondering how the hell I use to think he was funny.

Started well with the white people and lotion bit, but it would probably be funnier if he had a vocabulary. I almost wanted to go back and count how many times he said "it's like the thing, right?" Use your words, man. And anything that may have been funny about the entire getting punched by the girlfriend bit was sapped out by "the defribulator." Akin to listening to George Bush talk about "nucular weapons," and I instantly felt dumber upon hearing the joke.

Tim Minchin. Unless you're religious and sensitive about it, then you'll think he's dreadfully offensive.

What if you're sensitive and religious about it?

I'm not a big fan of musical comedy, but he is very good.

He got his start at the Butterfly Club, which has relocated to the city and is a really nice small venue.

Heading to The Shelf tomorrow night - three hours of hilarious, edgy, unpredictable comedy for $30, Melbourne's best comedy night.

I've always wondered what he's like live... His stand-up bits on Seinfeld were never really that funny taken on their own.

Over the course of 2 hours, his life observations and insights are funny as a whole. Watch his DVD "I'm Telling You For The Last Time" to get a better idea.

Jerry is funnier taken over a whole 2 hour period where he builds upon his material. Watch the DVD "I'm Telling You For The Last Time" to see what I mean.
