    I wanted this to be a Poll, but considering the mass number of comedians out there, it would just be silly.

    Anyway, been watching a load of stand up comedy lately, so far I've watched everything i could 'get my hands on' for:

    a-George Carlin

    b-Lee Evans

    c-Nemr Abou Nassar

    d-Russell Peters

    e-Sugar Sammy

    Just thought that if some people would be kind enough post up their favorites so that i can expand my entertainment

    He's a Ventriloquist i.e NO

    so without his little puppets, he isn't funny at all.

    I really didn't like his performances, but people got really hyped up about that achmed thing [​IMG]

    well technically he is a comedian, but no he isn't funny.


    Edit: oh yeah, Mitch Hedburg and Louis C.K.

    I like Walter more than Achmed, really. Achmed may be a little funny, but its racist.

    But wikipedia says he is a ventriquolist and stand-up comedian!

    I don't really watch stand up comedies, oh well. Any funny ones that can be found free online?

    WildWon's list is really good, and I would probably add Steven Wright. One of my personal favs.

    Oh hell, how could i forget him! Added to my list.

    There's a LONG list of GOOD stand-up names that i didn't include, if nothing more than forgetfulness. If more pop into my head, i'll continue adding.
    There's TONS of great stand-up out there, and i'm an absolute sucker for alt-comedy lol.

    My favorite is definitely Ross Noble. For any australians that watched Good News Week on Monday, he was fucking brilliant.
