I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Bill Hicks yet. The awesome thing that I like about him is that everything he said is just as (if not more) relevant now than it was when he made the jokes.

hahah, he's so fucking funny. he did about an hour and a half of all new shit, except for like 5 collective minutes of old stuff. his interactions with the audience are amazing, and his city-specific jokes are even funnier when they're about your city. i can't wait 'til he puts that shit on a cd.

That's awesome, I can't wait to hear the material he's been working on.

I wouldn't call this stand-up, but the talk about the Aristocrats got me thinking about this rendition.

i gotta hand it to O&A, they really do a great job of promoting really talented comics. some of the guys i've discovered over the years listening to O&A who haven't already been mentioned (too lazy to find videos, just YouTube or Google them!):

Jim Norton

Patrice O'Neal

Jim Breuer

Nick DiPaulo

Bob Kelly

Rich Vos

Jeff Ross


I'm right there with ya' man. You can add Jim Jeffries and Mike Birbiglia to that list too! Norton is my #1 at this point, though.

This is def one of my favorite stand up skits ever:



I can pretty much quote the entire thing. "This ain't the mothafuckin Flintstones Gus."

I wish this thread saw more action...What are everyone's favorite specials of 2009? Without any hesitation mine is Jim Jefferies' I Swear to God. Fucking brilliant comic from Australia by way of the U.K. (but currently residing in L.os Angeles).





Seriously. Get into it...These clips don't quite do it justice, but it's the best YouTube had to offer.

I thought this special was terrible, but the guy did a drop in at a free show I was at, and he was pretty solid.

I definitely dug the special. But his newer stuff tops it easily. I initially checked him out because he's boys with Bill Burr...

Wish this thread saw more action...Just picked up tickets to see Aziz Ansari this summer. Stoked! On the interim, I'll be seeing Jim Jefferies, Robert Kelly, Jay Mohr, and Bill Burr. Lots of great ones coming to Boston.

All separately, of course. Hah!

I've never seen his stand-up, but he's funny as hell on Community! I'll have to record that ish. But while we're talking Comedy Central, they have a bunch of great stuff coming out this year: Anthony Jeselnick and Joe DeRosa, specifically.
