Favorite Comedians

What comedians tickle your funny bone? Post clips if you want.

A few of mine:

The Comedians of Comedy (Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn)
Bill Maher
Louis C.K.

Warning, some explicit language:

The (late) Mitch Hedberg.

He gets me every time!

Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie

Tim & Eric

Zach Galifianakis is funny with Tim and Eric. I’ve seen some of his independent stuff, and it just doesn’t work for me. Seems too forced.

Christian Pickup (as MC Devvo) (some explicit language)

Seinfeld’s pretty good too. I saw him live a couple years ago, and it was basically like his show.

Dennis Wolfberg

Stephen Fry was actually just on The Graham Norton Show last Saturday.

I saw Sam Kinisen live, a year before he died when I was a teenager. It was one of the funniest things I ever saw.

For me, the gold standard is Rita Rudner:

Then there’s Dennis Miller:

And I also like Wendy Liebman:

Warning, adult language and also, hilarity.
