Demetri Martin is achingly funny.


For "racist" type humour you MUST see Canuck standup Russell Peters. Nobody speaks English with an "Indian" accent quite like this guy. Nobody does "brown guy south asian" humour quite like this guy. If you think Eddie Murphy does the "nigger" thing well..........ohmyfucckin'gawd. Russell Peters makes ya pee yer drawers.

Jim Jefferies is funny as all get out.

His stuff is irreverent, sarcastic & topical. Oh yeah, its NSFW!

I saw Steve Martin at the Troubadour in Hollywood in the early 70's. He was so drunk you couldn't understand any of his jokes. He was thrown off stage. That was funny.

I wouldn't put Andy Kaufman up against Carlin or Hicks. I used to see his performances on SNL back in the day and while we laughed at them, they just really weren't that clever in my opinion. He was different, but not in a way I really cared much for.

Izzard is really good. I've only seen his routines on the Spanish Inquisition and cake or death. Great stuff.

But my favorite is Richard Pryor, just above Carlin. Pryor just had a great attitude. I got "That Nigger's Crazy" on an 8-track for Christmas along with a clock radio that would play it. Ha ha ha. Good times.

I like what little I have seen of Louis CK, too. So many good comedians out there.

Tami,

My kids introduced me to Russell Peters, he is very funny! Not all racist, but point on.

As far as a single best standup? Hard to pick just one, George was hilarious and inciteful, Richard, Cosby, etc.
