The Comedy Thread


#1

I know this floats around in a few other threads, but considering how much I need to listen to some comedy at the moment, I was hoping I could get a dedicated thread going. 

 

So, I'll kick it off with some of my favourite bits, and a few new people I've gotten into recently.

 

 

Louis CK - He's the king; not much more you can say. I do particular like this bit from his most recent special:

Bill Burr - I love pretty much everything this guy does, so can't pick a favourite. His podcast is awesome too. But this one always cracks me up:

Went and saw John Oliver last night. I wasn’t sure what to expect as whilst I love his show, I usually find it more clever and witty with fun absurd touches (the mascots) then genuinely LOL funny, but his stand-up stuff was very, very good.

Wasn’t aware of Celia Pacquola outside of her role as straight-woman on Utopia, but her stand-up stuff was reasonably decent as well.

Jim Jeffries - I know there is better around, but he just reminds me of so many guys I used to know in my early 20's. Obviously this one is not for everybody, but the Video title should give it away as to whether it's your taste in funny or not:

Yeah nah
Rangas aren't attractive, or hygienic, or fit to run the country... But funny is all we have.

Fair enough.
Mark Twain said "comedy is tragedy plus time". And there's nothing more tragic than a ginger.
