Default Stand-up Comedy

Who are your favorite comedians? What are their best specials?

I don't know any really. The only one I know is the Russel Peters guy and he was pretty hilarious.

Sidenote: For the people commenting on the comedians be sure to say if their on Netflix as well.

Russel Peters can be found on Netflix. Check him out. I'm sure everyone knows who he is and might dislike him but he had some funny shit.

When I first saw Russell Peters, I was laughing hard. I thought he was straight up one of the funniest dudes ever. I watched another one, and it was the same damn jokes with even worse delivery. Tried again, same thing. He's the type you can only view once and never again, like Pablo Francisco.

EXACTLY. Perfectly said. That's how the majority of people feel about his work. He just seems to recycle. You can't be doing that. Your a comedian, your job is to stay as fresh as possible. He could of been bigger and better if he mastered his work.

What about Sam Kinison? A lot of stand up comedians glorify his work and said he's among the best ever. I'm talking a lot of relevant comedians list him the near top. I tried watching him and I did not get it at all. At all. It's just some dude yelling in between being a mock preacher. They uttered his name in the same breath as Hicks, Carlin and Pryor.

Chris Rock
George Carlin
Dave Chappelle

Don't feel like going through their catalogs to pick particular sets.

For Carlin anything from the 90s 'til his death is his peak with my favorites being Back in Town and Life is Worth Losing

The Dave Chappelle Show was just

Chappelle pulled a Seinfeld and left at his peak with people wanting more. That's smart for his legacy.

Chappelle's specials are GOAT.

What about Mooney? Dude is naturally hilarious but he always talks about race. That's it. I wish he could use his wit for greater things.
