    So I was wondering what comedians everyone likes. I drive about 4 hours a day to and from work, and have found that listening to a comedian helps out with the road rage.

    Mitch Hedberg (see the sig)
    Lewis Black
    Jeff Foxworthy
    Bill Engvall

    What comedians do you like?

    In no particular order:

    • Bill Bailey
    • Eddie Izzard
    • Tommy Tiernan
    • Dylan Moran
    • Billy Connelly (the earlier stuff)
    • Richard Pryor
    • Bill Hicks
    • Steve Martin & Robin Williams (both when they still did stand-up and not crappy films)

    Can't think of any more that come to mind at the mo...

    Mitch Hedberg is my all-time favorite. Lewis Black is very good too. I don't know bill Engvall. But JEFF FOXWORTHY!! Are you serious? Terrible.


    I really enjoy finding older comic bits from now famous people.
    Example:
    Kevin James, (King of Queens) - I don't like his show, but his standup is good.
    Bob Saget is another one. Known for Full House and America's Funniest Videos, his standup is disgusting, raunchy, and vulgar--I just love it.

    That's ok! :) I think he was so funny to me, especially when I saw that one clip on Jimmy Kimmel, because I had not laughed one time in a month (heartbroken bad during that time)! And then all of sudden I was cracking up but mainly because I saw Tom Cruise really act that way on Orpah! :)

    OMG, I forgot about Kathy Griffin. Her annoying voice and irritation mannerism actually work in standup.

    Word on that. David Cross sometimes gets off on rants that just piss me off, but overall, there isn't anyone with funnier bits out thee. That's why, as stated in the RINGTONE THREAD I stated my ringtone is David Cross screaming:

    I HAVE SEVEN PUDDING CUPS! over and over. lmao

    I don't know much about the older comedians. I should really look into them, feels like I'm missing some good stuff.
