I like Adam Hills, too. I saw him first on a World Comedy Tour DVD I bought years ago because FotC was on it, too. Loved his bit, and then was happy to see him on Mock the Week this past year. I must go investigate more of his stuff now that I've been reminded.

Adam Hills clip for you from the Gala at this years Melbourne Comedy Festival. I laughed. And he did a not too shabby Dutch accent :lol:

*wipes away tears of laughter*
Ah, that was beautiful! Heel leuk! He did do quite a good Dutch accent! Funny, too, since certain expats here seem to think quite the opposite, that the Dutch are incredibly rude. (I take the polite side on that argument.)

And hey! I've learned a new Dutch word! :lol:

Hee! I like the bit about the low crime rate because it's so flat!

Not rude in the least. Just more forthright and honest with their thoughts. More matter of fact. To the point.

Exactly! I think some people just need to have something to complain about. All of the Dutch friends we've made here have been incredibly friendly and kind.

You know I have heard of him but never seen anything he's done. US comedians don't tend to travel much to our shores. A few do but the rest not.

Haha yeah I saw that clip a couple of weeks ago! Great clip :D

I also recently saw this interview of Adam Hills on Rove. I swear I can listen to his funny experiences all day and he does seem like a genuinely nice guy :):

There's also a recent Arj Barker interview on Rove:

Oh my God, I've been watching Comedians of Comedy on Comedy Central soooooo freaking funny. The whole tour thing with Paton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Zach Galifianikas and Maria Bamford is HILARIOUS. But they also have a stand up special with a TON of people including Eugene Mirman and it is pee your pants funny.

I also posted in the "F of the C in your life" thread, but it belongs here too! I was browsing another site and Bret and Jemaine are now apparently "nerd girl porn": :D

Though I think Adam Hills being left off this list was a glaring omission. He's adorable!

I saw Patton this past September. So awesome.

I also still love Bernie Mac. He did outraged better than anyone. And his voice was like a rusty hinge. Loved him. RIP.

Where is Arj Barker on this list? He is a hottie, too!
