Watched Elephant in the Room
with some friends over the weekend and had the best laughs ever. I'd seen O'Neal on a Just for Laughs DVD a few years backs but i'd completely forgotten about him.
Thanks to everyone so far, my 'to-get' list continues to grow.
Thanks especially DC11GTR
, you really know your ****. Those Oswalt letters, genius. He should do a book.
Having a hard time finding Tomkins, Showalter & Behrendt.
I also stumbled upon the entire Lenny Bruce discography, about 30 albums. Pretty old school stuff but it should be interesting.
Paul Mooney is one of the guys i'm steering away from. I didn't single him out but before basically I don't want to listen to any more material from him. kudzudemon
should listen to Race
and Jesus is Black
. Granted Race
come out around the Rodney King incident.

Pretty sure Pryor is unanimously the greatest stand up comedian of all time, voted by his peers.
I somehow missed Pryor. Insane
are permanently on my mp3 player. Likewise, Live in Concert
makes my famed top 5. Which I'll publish as soon as I make the necessary additions to collection.
Also, I might add, Sick and Tired
continues to make me laugh. I find some of the best material from people I hadn't heard of or thought would be funny and that adds to the enjoyment. Comedy isn't about impressing people, it's about making people laugh.

I like Frankie. Live
was very funny. If I could reach
was... ok. Easily, the funniest guy I follow on Twitter. But he's not really a family man comics. I'm surprised when I see parents taking their kids to see his act. Maybe it's a cultural thing.
