Joe Rogan is under rated but not in the same realm of "top 5 lists" but he is damn good and the people he brings with him are as well. love coco diaz

I've only ever seen him in Tosh.0, which might not be the apotheosis of his comedic oeuvre, but that show is awful.

LOL if you think that show is awful, there's an extremely high likelihood that you are awful.

Re: Bill Hicks is overrated

Tosh isn't funny, and TTI is confirmed not awful.

It's telling that on Simmons' podcast, Norm McDonald took time to extol Sam Kinison's virtues and completely ignored Bill Hicks.

He's the only comedian that's been able to cross the, "whoa that's so ****ed up I can't laugh at it" line for me. And for that I have to respect his skills. The bit about the two-headed baby in Deadbeat Hero.

Re: Bill Hicks is overrated

What often happens is that the first person to do something ends up being surpassed by the people he influences and then his stuff does not look so hot as year pass. A great example is Ernest Hemingway. Many of his novels, you read them and you are like, this is written with a very simplistic style. It's quite ordinary and overrated. Except that this style did not exist before he invented. When the Sun Also Rises was published it was like The Beatles Revolver. Another example would be a horror movie like Psycho, if you see it now it's totally standard. At the time it was created it was revolutionary.
