Cool I'll give them a go.

James Acaster - easily one of the top comics in the UK at the moment. Has a pretty unique style. Also has a great Netflix special, 'Repertoire'.

I dunno, comedy is about as subjective as it gets.

Re: Favorite Stand Up Comics

As I said, I'm massively biased as I've a huge crush on her, but I think she's naturally very funny. Try the beekeeping clip, or the hundreds of clips from shows she's done here in the UK.

Doing that reminded me of just how many panel shows we have!

Re: Favorite Stand Up Comics

Pepitone's set seemed like a regression to me. Really disappointed one of my favorite comedians didn't knock any of it out of the park. How does he get his jokes so fresh?

I liked Andre's special so much because I don't consider him a standup at all and he wrote a set that is tons of jokes, commentary, raunchy, speaks to Truth & power, etc. Used his hour to just unload jokes and observations with a great mix and flow. It felt like a comedian just crushing in his element.

I do appreciate how Andre went balls to the walls in his special.

I just didn't find it very funny.

Looks like someone tried to Kennedy Big Jay Oakerson tonight.

Comedy is not pretty.

He looks to be alright, but is going to be sore tomorrow.

Re: Favorite Stand Up Comics

Not much on Joe List stand up but his podcast with Mark Normand is great.

Trying to listen to comics to see what the Jeff Ross deal actually is.

Really could go either way right now, but he does like em younger from the ones I've heard.

Re: Favorite Stand Up Comics

I stumbled across Norm MacDonald's old Me Doing Stand-Up special on Hulu yesterday, it was ****ing brilliant after a fairly slow start. I really think when Norm is at his best that no one has ever been as good as he is. I do wish he worked a little harder lol, cmon Norm.

I still listen to Bill Burr's podcast now and then, still like him quite a bit. I'll be seeking out Louis CK's post-scandal work soon.

Re: Favorite Stand Up Comics

just never been a fan of Norm.

He just isn't very funny to me, reminds me of an old drunk uncle that pops off a good one every once in a while, but mainly rehashes old jokes.

I just found Norm annoying at first, but after listening to people whose opinion I respect rave about him, I watched a lot of his work and now Im a huge fan.

Will try to watch that old special of his

best weekend update guy ever

always been a huge fan of his and he's principled too, head of nbc was friends with OJ, told Norm to stop with the OJ jokes and he refused so he was fired

thing about norm is most of the time he just doesn't gaf so if you're coming in cold and that's your first impression it's neither funny nor seems appropriate - he gets way too much grumpy old man airtime now who if an andy kaufmanesque manner is not really interested in telling a joke but rather presenting a curious situation to the viewer

this is norm at his best... just wait for it

Yeah, drunk uncle funny.

I don't get why guys ten times funnier than that worship the guy.

But to each their own.

Stopped 10 minutes in, I may have to try that stoned or something.

I find his crowd work frustrating, and it's possible I just enjoy Bo Burnham too much to see someone else do it less well.
