So who is/are your favorite comedian/s??

They can be stand-up, actors, whatever sort.

Shouldn't be much a surprise on these.....but I am a HUGE fan of Lewis Black and Bill Hicks.

Hicks was, by far, one of the deepest comedians to ever grace the planet with his presence. Oh yea, and he was born in my hometown.

Lewis Black is just, Lewis Black, and dammit! That's good enough.

This one may come as a surprise to ya, but I'm a HUGE fan of Eddie Izzard as well. Any of you guys who haven't heard "Dressed to Kill", I HIGHLY recommend it. "Definite Article" is also another of his great albums.

So what about you guys?

Eddie Izzard, definetly agreeing with you there. Gabriel Iglesias is another favorite. Steven Wright is pretty awesome, great, dry sense of humor.

Chris Rock, before that it was Eddie Murphy. I must admit though that I don't listen to comedians much. I liked Chris Rock 2002, I think it was. He cracks me up just coming out on stage.

Lewis Black is the best comedian that ever lived.

Jon Stewart is awesome too.

Also Patton Oswalt...

Any other time, dave chappelle, or Bill Murray. Dont know if hes a comedian per say. Hes still funny though.

Tough question..because I can watch just about anyone,and LMAO..
but I will say in my younger was Eddie Murphy...then Robin Williams who still cracks me up the most.
Lately I have been watching a lot of Larry the cable guy, and the whole Blue Collar comedy thing.

Eddie Izzard! The guy is a genius. I love how he makes surreal things... real.

Also, he doesn't talk about boring everyday stuff, he talks about religion, philosophy, etc.

Bill Bailey is another favourite, great comedian and a great musician.

Without a doubt, George Carlin.

I don’t have a fear of heights. I do, however, have a fear of falling from heights.

I admit I like some of the outragously dirty ones like Lisa Lampanelli and Dice. I love George Lopez on his sitcom. There was also a comedian I saw on comedy central only once I thought was absolutly hillarious, I think his name was Brian Reagan. Carlos Mencia has some great ones too but sometimes he seems redundant and unrealistic.

I like Lewis Black and other political comedians as well but right now I am taking a break from political comedy.

George Carlin is the man,in my book.

Others I like :

Chris Rock
Martin Lawrence
Richard Pryor
Katt Williams
Robin Williams

my favorite comedian is that guy from seinfeld , Kosmo Kramer. What makes him even more funnier is that he sayd 'n-word' to a black guy, thus giving himself "'n-word' guy"status lol

I`ll try and put some vids up of Billy,not sure if it will work.

If you know of Billy you know swearing comes with him,if not consider this forewarning.

Here`s a vid of billy who has just explained (not on the vid) that he is noticing strange things about himself as he gets older,in this one he`s explaining that he has found himself starting to yell at the TV in his old age,this is the example he gave about Wildebeasts on a wild life program he saw.

This ones about Billy`s experience on holiday in Ibiza (dont go


Women vs Men

Edit to add
I have no idea why some vids show up and some dont?
But clicking the link underneith works.
If someone could tell a computer handicapped person the inner workings of this,expect a cyber kiss or a hand shake for males.
The rest of you can watch this.

I'm a huge fan of Eddie Murphy in his younger days, as in SNL and Delerious. Robin Williams stand-up is hilarious as well, and I really like Gallager.

Remember him? The Sledge-o-matic?

First post on BTS. Hi!

Steven Wright, Mitch Goldberg, Lewis Black. Jon Stewart is good but I don't see him as a stand up guy. Same with Colert.

Dane Cook is pretty funny, but I've heard about him stealing material, so I'm kinda iffy but stolen or not, hes funny.
