There were some funny dudes on the Cedric special during the NBA All-Star weekend, too (the special from Showtime), but I don't recall any of their names.

There is only one: Bob Odenkirk.

Only one mention of Eddie Izzard? You guys should be ashamed. Best stand up ever.


Very true. I remember he used to do his shows in drag (probably still does). I was deadset on trying to not laugh at him because his drag appearance made me think he was going to try too hard or be a novelty/gimmick comedian. But he knocked it out of the park. Very intelligent comedy too, like even better than vintage Robin Williams. I just saw on Netflix that there's a lot of his stand-ups available to stream.

Paula Poundstone. Just kidding.

She somehow made a pant suit look like a windbreaker.

Yeah Izzard's "cake or death" bit had me rolling the first time i heard it. I really wish The Riches hadn't been canceled.

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

My current favorite is Patton Oswalt. I just think the guy is hilarious. Great material and perfect delivery.

Because horses have huge raging boners and we're all about huge raging boners here at CAG. There's poopers to be filled, dammit!

I'm actually surprised that only 1 or 2 people mentioned Dane Cook positively. I thought his older stuff was great. His new stuff, not so much. He's become more of a funny story teller that goes through a lot of rambling than an actual comic.

Im surprised to have seen Eddie Izzard so much. I was never impressed with his work, and always saw his weirdness as something he used to sell records (I dont think it is, but thats just how I felt, y'no? In the same vein as Lady Gaga but not as obviously whoring himself.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert for their daily injection of comedy news.

Lewis Black, Patton Oswalt. Then again I don't watch too much stand up comedy.

I don't watch that much stand up but of the stuff I have streamed from Netflix Tosh, Reagan, Martin, and C.K. are all pretty good. I find The Colbert Report to be hilarious as well. Also I listen to the Bob & Tom show almost every morning going to work and they always get some hilarious people on there show but I can never remember their names.

The people I don't like are everybody from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Galifianakis, Caliendo, Hastings, and Gaffigan. They all have some funny bits but the majority of their jokes are not funny.

Wow, lots of the more recent posts are guys I'd consider 2nd or 3rd tier funny, the Gaffigans, Martins, Tosh, Black. Those are funny guys, but if I had $40 in my wallet and could only see one of those guys perform, or go see Cosby perform, I'll be at the Cosby venue every single time.


But let's be honest, mentioning people like Bill Cosby/Eddie Murphy/Steve Martin is the same as mentioning Pryor/Carlin/Hicks.

Eddie Murphy was funny until he sold out and started doing family friendly movies.

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

I dont feel like getting a new thread up, so I wanted to talk about my reevaluated list, as Ive cleared about 50 new specials

My top 5 favorites (in order):

1) Steven Wright (Kicks Hedbergs ass in wordplay)
2) Zach Galifanakis (The shortest time its taken for me to love a comedian)
3) Brian Regan (Brilliant Writer)
4) Eugene Mirman (Just like Patton, only even better)
5) Louis CK (had a change of heart a little while back, now I love him)
