The last Chris Rock special was ok, nowhere near as good as his last couple. I'd love to see Lewis Black, Jerry Seinfeld I would have paid to have seen back in the day, but I think now he's too into the "kids and family" routine - if anyone has seen him lately can they tell me if that's true or not?

Lisa Lampenelli is hilarious, too.

I realize he has ripped off Bill Hicks on several occasions but Denis Leary still makes me laugh:

YouTube - Coffee

YouTube - STFU - Dennis Leary

I think my all-time favorite has to be George Carlin



I was pretty saddened by his passing earlier this year. I did get to see him live a few years ago at the Universal Amphitheater (who knows what name it goes by now). His material is timeless. Just as funny now as it was 30 years ago. I can't just pick one clip, but here's one that came to mind quickly:

YouTube - George Carlin Talks About "Stuff"


I did see Robin Williams at the same theater (different night obviously) years ago as well, when he decided to go back on tour. Pretty funny. Of course it later ended up being an HBO Special. I could have saved $150! Actually Carlin's eventually turned into a special as well. Still wouldn't have missed that one for the world!

And who here is old enough to remember Sam Kinison!

Almost forgot I've seen Mr. Deal or No Deal 3 or 4 times...he was quite funny in his day, also saw Gallagher once from the 2nd row...sledgomatic gets real annoying real fast when you're sitting that close.

[quote=partygirlvox;5617774]I can't physically bear Frankie Boyle, he has this awful habit of saying the most obvious gag in all situations - I never bother watching mock the week when he's on it.
[quote]

Well he's on it every week lol. Seriously, he just completely outshines everyone on that programme, and the majority of his most shocking jokes don't get aired.

I've never been one for really liking comedians, there is normally something about them that turns me off; but Frankie Boyle, for some reason does everything right in my opinion. His current UK tour is going very successfully atm. Everyone take a little time to watch that clip and give him a chance.

And that's why I don't watch it that often QI's better Nah I don't find him funny. I think there's a fine line between being rude/obnoxious because it's funny and then being rude/obnoxious for no reason. He always crosses that line, and just irritates the hell out of me

Since no one's posted any Bill Hicks yet:

YouTube - Bill Hicks - JFK

NO COMIC had balls this big:

YouTube - Bill Hicks- Gays in the Military

Just imagine him having to live through the years of Iraq War II and Bush II:

YouTube - It Seemed So Plausible

His genius has no bounds...

YouTube - bill hicks - evolution

Kubrick reference FTW.

And if anyone would like to point out to me a more inspirational "comic", I'd love to hear about it:

YouTube - Bill Hicks: What is the point to Life

Also some brilliant material on the Catholic Church after the giant molestation scandal.

My all-time favorite is probably Bill Hicks though.
All you need is a nickel, a jet ski, a zinc tablet, and a wish.
