I know I'm missing a few, but these were who crossed my mind at the time. I can instantly tell you the couple who top MY list.... icon_compress.gif
I haven't heard of half of those but I'd love to be a 'stand up' comedian. :p
I'd have to say Joel McHale, since I'm going to see him live next month LOL. Hal Sparks is another one I enjoy.
Katt Williams hands down. "If Jimi Hendrix was mounted by Allen Iverson in Richard Pryor's rec room they would give birth to you"-Jeremy Piven to Katt in American Hustle
Bill Cosby

I knew I forgot someone!! And I must be getting old, a good number of comics in my list are no longer with us. Sad

He's not quite as funny now that he's married. Kind of like Elvis Costello, a lot of his material was ex-girlfriend angst.
Norm Macdonald

I quite like him, too! :devil:
Only saw one from that group. I've seen the following perform.

My All time favorite is:

Don Rickles!!! Saw him 2 times from the 1st row, but hey it Don Rickles & if he picks on you it's an honor!! Once at the MGM Grand in Vegas. He made one off color remark to me, but it was a complement. He shook our hands (sorry no high five LOL) & last year at Bergen Pac in NJ. He is very sweet, besides being very funny.

Rodney Dangerfield - Very Funny. MGM Grand, Vegas. Ahh Rodney, No Respect, No Respect.

George Carlin - Actually wasn't as funny as I thought he would be. Bally's, Las Vegas.

Dana Carvey - His stand up actually surprised me. He was good. The Mirage, Las Vegas

Ray Romano & Kevin James - Very funny did separate routines then came out together. Super funny. Mirage, Vegas. If you have a chance check them out.

Lisa Lampanelli - Very funny saw her at Harrah's in Vegas & also at a taping of Jimmy Kimmel in Hollywood.

Rita Rudner - Use to be funny, but doesn't seem to change her routine. Monte Carlo, Vegas.

Rob Bartlett - My dear Cheap Trick buddy, who I love immensely. Saw him twice in NJ. Very funny, very funny. His Beatle routine rocks, along with Pig Feets Dupris.

I always try to go to the Improv or one of the comedy clubs when I'm in Vegas. So I've seen plenty of comedians through the years.

Stand up comedian who I would like to see live would be Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Margaret Cho.

My favorite will always be Steve Martin :laugh: I can't say I'm a fan of any of his movies other than 'The Jerk' but I used to listen to the 'Let's Get Small' and 'Wild And Crazy Guy' albums all the time; he had a hilarious stand-up routine back in the day icon_thumleft.gif Check it out if you ever get a chance; blessings>

You should read his autobiography. A good read and sheds light on how he developed his routine.
The Top 10 Funniest Lines at this years Edinburgh Festival.

1) Tim Vine "I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again."

2) David Gibson "I'm currently dating a couple of anorexics. Two birds, one stone."



3) Emo Philips "I picked up a hitch hiker. You've got to when you hit them."

4) Jack Whitehall "I bought one of those anti-bullying wristbands when they first came out. I say 'bought', I actually stole it off a short, fat ginger kid."

5) Gary Delaney "As a kid I was made to walk the plank. We couldn't afford a dog."

6) John Bishop "Being an England supporter is like being the over-optimistic parents of the fat kid on sports day."

7) Bo Burnham "What do you call a kid with no arms and an eyepatch? Names."

8) Gary Delaney "Dave drowned. So at the funeral we got him a wreath in the shape of a lifebelt. Well, it's what he would have wanted."


9) Robert White "For Vanessa Feltz, life is like a box of chocolates: Empty."

10) Gareth Richards "Wooden spoons are great. You can either use them to prepare food. Or, if you can't be bothered with that, just write a number on one and walk into a pub…"

icon_jokercolor.gif The best stand up I have seen live was probably the Irish comedian DYLAN MORAN. (Black Books, Run Fat Boy Run)
For the older ones amongst you, think of a modern day Dave Allen.
