Stand-up Comedy Thread


Recommended Posts

gotta come clean, bill hicks is an obnoxious cynical smug piece of shit... that might sound really cool for a comedian like him but his act is really lame...

he basically says afx should be off the artistic roll call forever cause he has songs in commercials... and all that shit talk about all the best music wouldn't have been made without drugs... then he brags about the beatles... what a looser loser...

btw, the band tool loves him so, i rest my case...

It's true that all the best music wouldn't have been  made without drugs though. Don't really get your point about the beatles either... (And you spelt loser incorrectly)

But yeah... tool are awful

Frank Zappa didn't do drugs... 

Beatles are shit...

But yeah... I spelt loser wrong... 

frank zappa says he didn't do drugs. 

maybe he didn't.. maybe i just don't believe he never smoked weed or had some experience w/psychedelics. 

i like bill hicks. it's not gospel. it's comedy. sometimes these people lay it on pretty thick because it makes for a better punch line. also, LSD leads people places some times. he had a hard take on marketing. he was a product of his time and environment. as we all are.. more or less.  i'm ok w/giving people a little elbow room to work.

anyway... for stand up.. carlin, pryor are classic and when at the top of their game were in rare air. chapelle seems to be there now. top of his game for sure. legend. 

i don't follow stand up a lot. now then i catch some stuff. seems there's a handful of people really nailing it long term. just listening to other comics in casual conversations on podcasts etc they throw names around. it's interesting.

I watched Patton Oswald’s special recently on Netflix and it was good, but afterwards he did an advertisement for another special from a comedian named Bob Rubin called Oddities and Rarities and I was blown away.  It’s nested in his special in the Netflix menus as another episode.  What a wonderful and captivating maniac.  He has like 300 followers on YouTube and a video of his standup from almost ten years ago that’s pretty funny, but his special is a super refined version of it.  Highly recommended.  Kind of like Steven Wright if he replaced sleep with cocaine.

Good stuff. I'd never heard of him before, and as I watched it, I thought, he's probably dead, because a) that dude is blasted, and b) if he wasn't dead, he'd be famous now, and I'd heard of him. Oh well ... 😔

Don't have much else to add to the thread, my holy trinity consists of Louis CK, Dave Chappelle, and Ricky Gervais, but everybody's familiar with them. Demetri Martin is good too. I love DELIRIOUS by Eddie Murphy, and if he really returns to stand-up as planned, I'd watch that in a heartbeat. Really liked him on CICGC, charming fellow he is. Still like Seinfeld too FWIW, even if he's gotten a bit smug and satiated.

Yeah, Hedberg is one of the best. I remember they announced his death on April 1st, so everyone thought it was a joke for a day.

not on the same calibre but the deadpan one-liners reminded me of this dude... he does the voice of tina belcher in bob's burgers...

Where is the evidence that Bach composed his cello suites on drugs ?

@very honestwhy did you delete your comment about Ricky Gervais? I've canceled him a long time ago, he's a douchebag... I've always thought that the show you posted a scene of was a bit too much...
