Couldn't find a stand up comedy thread........so now there is one.


Checked out Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers on Netflix.

So dark but so funny.

Nice thread idea Monk, I saw Jimmy Carr live at the Apollo on YouTube.  Brilliant show with a lot of quick jokes but some are repeated in other shows he's done.

"I'm a very gay friendly act.  I was asked last year to judge Mr. Gay UK, I said no problem at all.  He's against nature, he's against god and he's going to hell"  :thumbsup:

Oh f*** Jimmy Carr is hilarious.

Most comedians recycle their material, the best way to avoid it is watching their specific shows\specials.

One comedian I love is Jim Gaffigan. You need to sit through a full set to appreciate his quirky gimmicks, but worth it. So many jokes about food. Mr Universe is my least favourite of his specials so I recommend starting with beyond the pale or king baby if you want to give his stuff a try.

At the moment I am completely in love with Pete Holmes, he is the guy who does Bad Man for College Humour. If you ever get a chance check out Nice Try, The Devil or Impregnated with Wonder both are on Spotify. It is just complete and utter goofy bafoonary at its finest.

 

 

And if you dig some asian stereotypes check out Chinaman.

I'm actually not a fan of his. I think he just comes off as a pompous dick.

Thanks a lot Drunk_Monk, now I'm going to waste endless hours watching clips of Anthoney Jeselnik on youtube...

 

 

Exactly how I thought when like 90% of my FB friends changed their pic to a French flag.

 

 

Also, I used to hate Jeff Ross until I saw a few of his videos where he went to different prisons and roasted inmates.

I didn't mind Anthony Jeselnik, and had a couple good LOLs, but found him slightly one dimensional and prefer Daniel Tosh.

Jeselnik is the goods, but I bow to the alter of Louis CK.

Most stand up comedies on Netflix I give 20 mins to grab me. Most of them don't.

Fully agree, he's bloody brilliant. Especially love that "audience member voice" he does.

 

Also a big fan of Aziz Ansari.

Haha yea the heckler voice he does is exactly what I mean. It take a little while to get used to, then it becomes hilarious.

Always meant to watch more Aziz.

Bill Hicks: Relentless 1992, pretty funny.  My favourite part was when he said "A lot of christians wear crosses, do you think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fvcking cross?  Kinda like going up to Jackie Onassis with a little sniper rifle pin on."  :D
