I'm really loving Tim MInchin at the moment he does comedic songs aswell as air guitar and stand up.

Very very funny guys. If you like Saturday Night Live, you'll love the Lonely Island. Andy Samberg is apart of it. Check out the SNL Digital Shorts. The Lonely Island guys produce them:

Jeff Dunham is another great comic. He's a ventriloquist.

And I love Bill Engvall as well.
Shush baby.

A friend of mine from college does stand up comedy, Robin Weinburgh.

There are audio and video clips on his site : http://www.robinlikesscience.com

Like slightly nerdy, geeky humor ? Then he's your man :wink:

I'm sure you all probably know of MITCH HEDBERG (if you don't you do now), but he is my favorite comic of all time! Unfortunately, he died a few years ago, but his jokes live on!

Also, I really love Chris Farley! He's probably my second favorite.

I guess I have a thing for dead guys... :rolleyes:

I love The Lonely Island! I'm pleasantly surprised to see it mentioned.
A friend forced me to watch it after he had been screaming the 'Awesometown' theme song in my face for a few days.

The Whitest Kids U'Know are amazing as well, and Demetri Martin and Mitch Hedburg (Especially the whole comparing frogs to bears bit.)

I saw Arj Barker's Comedy Central Presents special last year and loved him but then forgot about him, so I squealed with joy when I saw him on Conchords. .

And I know that people get tired of everyone on earth praising Dane Cook, but I must say that I love him too. Image

Nice, other people have actually seen some of the Lonely Island stuff. One of my favorites from them might be ignition tv... the one about Teen Witch... what an obscure movie reference.

My favorite Stand up comedians...

Nick Swardson
Arj Barker
Demetri Martin
Lewis Black
Mitch Hedberg
Mike Birbiglia
Zach Galifianakis

ah.. this is hard compiling a list, but I think those are the main ones.

CANNOT stand Dane Cook anymore. All the men that I listed above are way funnier than Dane Cook.

I'm seeing Danny Bhoy for the fourth time in two weeks. He never fails to deliver.

Speaking of youtube funnies, check out the comedy troupe derrickcomedy. They make the most inappropriate situations pretty hilarious. I recommend 'Bro-Rape' and 'B-Boy Stance'. Hilarity.

I saw Danny Bhoy for the fourth time on Thursday night. He never fails to make me laugh so hard I cry. All four shows I've been to have eventuated with me being in tears and hurting from laughing so hard. I love it.
