Everybody stand up

Everybody stand up

Postby Grey » Fri Aug 30, 2013 10:31 pm

And post a stand up comic you really like.

I'm gonna share with you two of my current favourites that you may not know of not being British. One of them is American, but only has a stand up career since he moved to Britain. He moved over to train as a classical actor, hoping British acting school credentials would buy him a few minutes on Broadway. While ranting and complaining about the trials and tribulations of life to some friends in a bar one day, the next table burst out laughing and told him to attempt stand up comedy. He did, and he was successful. This is him.



The other guy I wanna show you has been described as "the comedian's comedian." He co-wrote Jerry Springer The Opera and has been formally accused of the crime of blasphemy. Not much more needs to be said of the man known as Stewart Lee.

My favourites haven't changed in a while

There's Bill Hicks






There's Mitch Hedberg


Most recently I've enjoyed Dylan Moran





"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Oooo this thread's gonna be fun!
Although I've heard lots of stand-up comedians, this one's damn funny to me (and everyone, I guess).
Louis C.K.
Mir@k: Exodis is the little kid of the forum, compared to everyone else.
Grey: From now on i will call you eggy because i don't like x but ex sounds like eggs. i like eggs.
Yog: Exodis, your manner of speech and the way you conduct yourself is beginning to evolve to the point where I'm starting to like you.
Blood Lord: Yup, Randori is a very well respected night elf of the community. His valuable service to the site has brought great blessings to this people.
BeeAre: I'm totally gay for Randori.
Stuff: Exodis, you are learning. Mama is proud.

Deemed as the best, Outlawed as the worst.

Love me some Brian Regan, seriously, this guy doesn't get enough hype. Been my favorite comedian forever.
I would totally check out his stand up, entire specials of his are on Youtube.

John Mulaney might have one of the funniest stories I've heard in a while:


Also Jim Jefferies is one of the sickest fuckers working:

Ahh, Reginald "Delicious" Hunter. He's good alright. I love it when he talks about his father too.






Then there's Richard Jeni. Too bad he killed himself. I often got a bit of a George Carlin feel from him when he went on about politics.




Also, I like Frankie Boyle, even though he doesn't do regular standup. And the similar style from Jimmy Carr, for whom Boyle used to write material in the past. Though Jimmy is not nearly as fun to watch as Frankie.


Oh, and there's also Bill Burr to mention.

I listened to him before Demetri Martin, who I think does his act better.

Also, found someone new who I think is entertaining.

Ah, well here's something else of his then.



Never thought I'd hear someone make jokes about L&O:SVU and Home Alone 2... Came right out of left field.
