Ahh this one is right up my alley but I may not get through it for a while. Watching stand up's is something I do a LOT but I honestly don't know who most of the newish people are.
Comedians I listen to or watch a lot in no real order:
I notice I like kind of screamy comics, but most are also story tellers and i'm into that more than jokey folks.
I used to love George Carlin and saw him live 3 or 4 times. The last time I saw him was maybe 6 or 8 months before he died and it was just a lot of angry old man which made me sad. We saw Gallagher live 8 or 10 years ago and it was really similar, pretty sad.
Yes, I did enjoy Gallagher's humor, the sledge-o-matic stuff not so great. My father introduced me to his comedy in like the 80's so it stuck with me.
Bad comics, I really don't know a lot either but Dane Cook...wow. I never got the appeal and have suffered through maybe 3 specials and don't ever recall laughing.
I would also add in, puppet comics. I know Jeff Dunham is super popular but I just can't take it.
So, lets hear some opinions, maybe some people will be introduced to some new funny folks they didn't know about before.
