Russell peters and gabriel inglesias

for the former check out 'outsourced' and for the latter check out 'hot and fluffy' although all their work is great.

Was Robin Williams from Broadway mentioned yet?

Either way, that's the one you need to see.

Personally:



When I saw this thread I was expecting that who I would recommend would get lost in the shuffle, but as you've recommended two I would have I'm going to give it a go.

First, have you seen Kevin Bridges' new show? 'The Story Continues' I like it a lot. Pretty much a carry on from the first live DVD, and definitely worth watching.

Been watching Greg Davies a lot recently too, his DVD is Firing Cheeseballs at a Dog and when it's funny, it's hilarious. Serious overtones throughout and especially at the end, but when he's on point mate he's hilarious. The stories he tells about his parents are top notch.

My favourite comedian is Ross Noble though, and can't recommend his shows enough. For me, all of them, but if you're new to him then I would say Fizzy Logic and Unrealtime are both worth a checking out.

Lee Mack is another one who I'd recommend, both of his live DVDs are class if you watch them apart. I found the first one was massively superior when I first watched them, but after a while I now think the second one is just as funny.

Ever seen Ricky Gervais's? They're all funny throughout but some are funnier than others. Short as well so worth it for a quick watch of them all.

Other comedians I'd recommend,

Lee Evans;
Stewart Lee;
Richard Herring;

Jason Byrne is very funny as well, someone I had never heard of before his "funny eye" story on Live at the Apollo.

Actually, mentioning that, if you're looking for new stand up to watch then get onto http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...laylists&uni=3 and watch some of the shows, as I'm sure you probably have, which are mostly very funny and then anyone you enjoy, get their stand up DVDs.

Jason Manford is another big favorite of mine, and Peter Kay. Just gently humour thats sometimes very, very, very funny. Any of the Big Yin as well, leaning more towards his big era stuff, 70's-80's.

As this is a stand up comedy thread, I have an opinion I want to see if other people share; As a Englishmen, do you find a lot of American stand up comedy unfunny? Now I'm not trying to offend anyone, I know some of the greatest ever stand up comedians in Pryor and Hicks were American and I genuinely love them, but a new breed of American standups, such as Dane Cook, to me aren't funny. Am I missing something, is Dane Cook and his brethren just not funny and I'm watching the wrong comedians? I'm honestly NOT trying to turn this into anything anti-American leading to anti-brit, at all, I'm a huge fan of American comedy in television and films I've just found myself struggling to get into any American comedian of the last decade or so. I have enjoy Louis CK though, but that's because I love the TV show so I don't know whether I just enjoy him more than others because of that.

Anybody else have the same issue? And any Americans struggle to get into british Humour?

Greg Giraldo - Good Day To Cross A River

Greg Giraldo was one of my favorite stand ups in recent years. Although he died before putting out much (one CD & one live special), it remains some of the funniest stuff I've seen in a long time.

Aries Spears - I Ain't Scared

As a whole I don't know if Aries is that good since he only ever does the material in this CD, but its really funny stuff. He has a special too, but its mostly rehashed from the CD.

George Carlin - Parental Advisory (1990)/Jammin In New York (1992)/You Are All Diseased (1999)

Three of my favorite stand up albums ever. George Carlin was the best of all time in my opinion, definitely check these out.

Honerable Mentions:
1. Kumail Nanjiani
2. Joe Rogan

I'll throw in Jim Gaffigan and Emo Philips to the conversation. Emo is the master of the garden path sentence.
