The Funniest Comedian Right Now?


Recommended Posts

What about Lewis Black. He makes me laugh too.

I enjoy his work
Me too.It's not really been stressed in this thread but if Chappelle is still working, he belongs near the top of any list. The two hour standup specials I've seen of his (Killing them Softly and For What its Worth) are just awesome.

Yeah Chapelle should definitely be very near the top in any objective list. Whenever I see his stuff he not only gets a laugh but he often makes me think a bit as well. I like that.

No Jeff Dunham love eh?

No. I've never liked ventriloquists.
Funny thing is he is a crappy ventriloquist. He is the opening act for the puppets. The little standup bits he does before his puppets come out suck. I saw him years ago in a small comedy club and I have seen him do his arena show and I still find him funny. I guess to be accurate I have no Jeff Dunham love but Walter and Achmed bring me and the entire household to tears.

Right now Stephen Lynch is the guy that makes me laugh the most. But comedy is so subjective, well other than Dane Cook I think we all agree he sucks, that it makes it hard to call one the best.

:lmao: I enjoy Cook
I understand there are therapists specializing in helping victims like yourself.

Doug Stanhope - not sure if he's the funniest, but he's my favorite

:thumbup:
I love Doug Stanhope. Don't know if he's the "funniest", but the dude has no filter. Spits the truth as his warped mind sees it. Refreshing/different. Like me some Louis CK, Bill Burr (didn't really know about him until RawDog on XM). Like Lisa Lampanelli's schtick as well.

Birbiglia, Demetri Martin, Stanhope, Galifianakis, Tim and Eric, Brian Posehn (sp?), Giraldo

Wow this is a good list. I don't really know the first or last guy, but the others are really funny. May check those other 2 out since the rest are known hits :goodposting:
Birbiglia - What I should have Said was Nothing entire special

Giraldo - 1st four on this playlist have some good stuff

Love Stephen Lynch - dude hardly ever tours the south though. Would love to see him live.

ETA: Dude is sick.

Is this an example of his best work?
Found it pretty funny personally. My favorite by him is
. Definitely NSFW.
Loved the Waiting song. Never heard that one before. Heres a funny one:

Just got done watching these clips. never heard of him before. Kind of reminds me of Brian Regan in his delivery and mannerisms.

Overall pretty funny stuff. :thumbup:

I know it is FFA sheik to poo poo Dane Cook but he makes me laugh. :shrug:
This explains everything!
:lol: I knew a comment like this was coming.I just look at it like when my musician friends poo poo a song or band that I don't mind or enjoy. Just because they do not like it sure does not mean I have to not like it too. I like what I like and laugh at what I laugh at. No reason to try to act like I don't.
It's an objective fact that Dane Cook is unfunny.
He yells loudly.

I like Demetri Martin (I can relate nerd/law school humor :lol: ) and Daniel Tosh are my personal favorites but Louis CK, Gaffigan, Ralphie May, Attell, and the others listed above are all great.

I also :shrug: that one hot comedian who is kinda dirty/tomboyish whose names escapes me right now. She did the "go peeny go peeny" bit. Damn I can't remember her name.

why are all the comedians mentioned in the thread white?just found it odd as historically most of the great comedians of the past 20 years have been black.

Who are the funniest black comedians right now? Chappelle is great but he's not really working right now. I like Rock, but his shtick is getting old for me. Bernie Mac is dead. There's D. L. Hughley, Eddie Griffin and Cedric the Entertainer. They're okay. Kat Williams is one of the hot black comedians right now. But I don't really like him. Tracy Morgan? Wanda Sykes?!?!? For me, one of the funniest comedians "of color" is Russell Peters.

Ricky Gervais - Out of England was hilarious, Out of England 2 just came out, not sure if its any good or not. but Out of England one still makes me cry and I've seen it amillion times

Meh. I was at the taping of Out of England 2 and wasn't that impressed. Watched it on HBO and it wasn't even as good as I remembered.

If he'd get back to work it'd be Chappelle easily. I'd take his full stock of work over Chris Rock any day.

I love the Aziz Ansari special but haven't seen anything else since. Really thought he was going to take off based on that special.

Daniel Tosh is just crushing tape measure shots with Tosh.0 right now. Biggest TV laughs since the Chappelle show

Hottest comedianne = Iliza Shlesinger (hay carumba)...and she's actually kind of funny in a quirky way.

I like Louis CK, but when he misses...man he crashes hard. In his Milwaukee taped special "Hilarious", he admits he loves making an audience cringe by saying something inappropriate...so he might be doing some of that "crashing" on purpose.

Eddie Izzard's Dress to Kill is still the funniest thing I've seen in over a decade.

Mitch Hedberg was a genius.

Chapelle and Rock tell the truth.

Dunham. Saw him live a couple of years ago, and didn't expect much. I can't remember a single thing he said, but we laughed so fookin' hard.

Peter Tosh shouldn't make me laugh, but by Gahd, he does.

Still don't think anyone's touched Izzard, for me.

He's better in person. His tv show sucks in comparison to his act, and I completely agree with your statement about the biggest laughs since Chappelle.
