I got so sick of most of the obvious garbage I am running across I decided to create something for smiles...

1) Rodney Carrington

He has released six major-label studio albums and a greatest-hits package, on Mercury Records and Capitol Records. His comedy act typically combines stand-up comedy and original songs.

3)Gabriel Inglesias

Gabriel J. Iglecias (born July 15, 1976), known professionally as Gabriel Iglesias, is an American standup comedian and actor, known for his shows I'm Not Fat… I’m Fluffy and Hot & Fluffy.

He has been called a "comedy genius" by Hector Saldaña of the San Antonio Express-News.

Do you have any choices yourself?

I went to see Bill Cosby a few days ago. It was a rare opportunity as iowa is not always a destination for bigger names, and when they do visit iowa its usually desmoines, not my city. But here was Bill Cosby doing a show in my city, so I took advantage of the opportunity.

He started out using the name of my city, nice gesture. Some stars don't always bother to pay attention to where theyre at, always nice when they do.

Bill Cosby then began discussing the flood my city experienced several years ago, verified that where we were had been 9 ft underwater, yes it was. He goes on to do a good 15minute or longer skit about some of the choices made at that time by our city.

Now some performers will write a generic (insert name here) skit to use in multiple cities making it seem personalized. Bill Cosby took the time to learn details and choose a skit, one that can never be used anywhere but here. He did not consider it a waste of time, we were not a waste of time. For that I give total support and appreciation to him.

I like a lot of American comedians.
Kat Williams is one of them. I had never seen Gabriel Iglesias. The last video was hilarious with the cop making the joke, I gota say I lol'd very hard!

This guy is an impersonator comedian that I like from the US. Old video but worth a look.
I like his Robert De Niro impersonation where he says "look at me, huh. I am de Frankenshstein monshta, I have bolts on my neck, I'm electrican scary, woooooooh".

I personally am a fan of Anthony Jeselnik and Amy Schumer.
Both are very original with great material.
Or on the crude side Bill Hicks is funny or Mitch Hedburg

One of my favorites from decades ago was the bit about the dentist, (butt walking and shouting "smobke" and "fibre") I believe it was from the release titled "himself"
Currently my favorite was his skit about my city deciding to put a train full of scrap on a bridge for fear the flood would wash the bridge away.... yeah he couldn't have asked for better material there!

I also love richard pryor, especially his retelling of lighting himself on fire and recovering in hospital. Took something horrifying and frightening and turned it into pure gold.

There is a Joe Rogan routine on Netflix that had me in stitches.
Good observational/human nature type material!
I'd say he is my current favorite.

Good Ole G-e-o-r-g-e...or-ge-or (the uncool name that never ends when you try to spell it) Carlin.
Is my all around fave...I had all his albums on tape, and when there wasn't music playing, there was George, the Hippy dippy weather man, Al Sleet. To this day, I have a dog, whom I have nicknamed "Tippy".
