Stand Up Comedy

So, I've done a lot of thinking about this "art form"... I have a lot of favorites. Growing up, my dad had a traveling job. I would steal his cassette tapes of various comedians and I instantly fell in love with that whole era of comedy. I grew up listening to Carlin, Cosby, and Pryor. Over the years, my taste for comedy has evolved quite a bit. If I had to list a top 5 (current guys/girls) it would include, no certain order:

1) Chappelle
2) Louis CK
3) Kevin Hart
4) Joe Rogan
5) Joey Diaz

I know this has been discussed before, so the repost police can suck a dick.

Amy Shumer is legit hilarious. My second favorite comedian going behind Louis CK.

As far as old school: Carlin, Steve Martin, Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams (yeah he sucks now - but Reality What a Concept) was amazing. Diceman had his moments as well.

Lenny Bruce is the godfather, IMO. He was the first, well, first well known, comedian to really push the boundaries of what standup can be. It's a shame that there isn't more surviving material.

Though far less controversial, another old school comedian that I think doesn't get the love they deserve is Jonathan Winters. Without him, there is no Robin Williams.

Obviously I'm a big Hicks fan, but he gets plenty of love.

Sadly, I don't keep up with it much anymore and I don't really know who those transcendent comedians are anymore. I like folks like Oswalt, Burr, Gaffigan, and Louie, but I don't really consider them next-level stuff. Eddie Izzard's Dressed to Kill was the last time I was really blown away by a performance.

I did get to see Neil Hamburger with about 20 other people at a hole-in-the-wall bar in San Diego a while back. That was fun.

John Pinette is also good. And I like Maria Bamford. I like when she goes into the normal voice during a joke.

My CURRENT top 5 list

1. Jim Jeffries
2. Bill Burr
3. Bill Hicks
4. Dave Attell
5. Colin Quinn

I'm not as big a fan of Sarah Silverman or Amy Schumer or Kevin Hart or Patrice O'Neal as many people and I think Luis C.K is very overrated as a standup comedian vs his skit show.

Nothing against anyone that likes the newer comedians though.

I can't believe I haven't seen Bill Cosby on the list of classic comedians. He's more preachy now, but some of his early stuff is great...like Noah!

One of the best dirty comedians has always been Buddy Hackett---NSFW for language

Rodney Dangerfield:

Of the newer comedians I love most of the people already listed on here. I'm just trying to get some of classics that have been forgotten.
