    Favorite bit in recent memory:

    Should have started a thread on the 11/28 for Patrice O'Neal, one of the funniest comedians ever that most people just have never heard of. That football joke and his bit about missing white women in Elephant in the Room are two of the funniest things you'll hear from any comedian out there.

    The lack of Paul F Tompkins in this thread makes me sad.

    Eddie Izzard, Kyle Kinane, Jimmy Pardo, Patton Oswalt...

    If you believe comedy is an art form, do yourself a favor and find Tig Notaro's Live (as in "I want to live forever," not "live from Madison Square Garden") CD. It's like 30 or 45 minutes, but it's a set she did literally days after finding out she had cancer in both breasts. It's one of the single most amazing stand-up sets I've ever seen.

    In the course of like three months, she got pneumonia that turned into something called C-def that took all the good bacteria from her digestive tract, so she had to spend a bunch of time in the hospital and lost a bunch of weight, right after that her mom died suddenly after falling and hitting her head on the corner of a table, and then right after that she was diagnosed with cancer. And she is able to go up and be funny about all of it! It really is amazing stuff. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Are the funniest guys working now.

    New guy on the scene is Colin Kane. Saw him in chicago a few weeks back. He will be the next big thing, imo.

    Brian Regan: I Walked on the Moon
    Bill Burr: Let it Go

    Katt Williams: Pretty much all of it.

    Paul F. Thompkins is pretty funny.

    Oh and I was bored of Russell Peters until he started going on Opie and Anthony a few times and held his own.

    Jim Florentine is really funny to me as well...The voice is just naturally funny.

    Anyone ever heard of Iliza Schlesinger? I almost want to find her funny, but she works so hard to paint herself as awkward when she's *really* hot that it just doesn't work for me. Her handjob joke was teeeerrrible.

    Where the smog meets the shore
    There's George Carlin....and there's everybody else.

    No comedian could command a stage like him and go 1 hour without a second of silence; all content. He attacked the crowd. Start with something topical/political, then go into a bit on fart jokes, then a few minutes of "why is it" type stuff, cap it off with a finale that makes you laugh and think deeply.
