Depends on the mood I am in but Billy Connolly, Eddie Izzard and Lee Evans are my personal favourites. 

Billy Connolly for rants

Eddie Izzard for bizarre thoughts like a death star canteen or historical things like Caesar.

Lee Evans for mad-capped hyperactive craziness - retired now :(

My favourite stand-up is Stewart Lee.  I find him significantly funnier than any other comedian out there.  I love Peter Kay too.

I have UK television here (thank god), so I tend to know alot more English comedians. Here are some that stand out to me:

 

Micheal McIntyre, Greg Davies (he was also in the Inbetweeners), Russell Howard, Sean Lock, Kevin Bridges (my fav.), Rich Hall (he ALWAYS makes me laugh).

 

There are many others but these are from the top of my head.

Nick Di Paolo ad Colin Quinn.

I love Di Paolo's sleazy middle-age snarky attitude, and Quinns' dead-on insults with obscure yet vivid references.

I love Louis CK and enjoy a lot of Carlin, despite the fact that he called Saab a piece of sh*t. 

 

I'm a huge Jim Gaffigan fan:

 

Clean humor, funny delivery. I used to watch a lot of Seinfeld standup back in the day.

Isn't George Carlin more of a debater than a comedian ? 90% of his stand-ups are just about political issues, government lies etc etc, I don't find any of those rants funny, maybe i missed the point of the jokes ...

I think that's probably why he's my favourite. I think he was a very wise man who had plenty of important arguments to put across and legitimate grievances to complain about, but did so in a way that was hilarious in my opinion. The dude was a truth teller and way ahead of his time. In these times we're living in where our civil liberties and freedom of thought and expression are being eroded by corrupt governments and the "that's offensive" brigade, we really need more people like him to stand up and tear into these people.

Yeah, his bit about clipping his toe nails is rife with political intrigue and controversy.

The best comedians have social messages.  What better way to prove how ridiculous the opposition is than comedy?  I love Carlin, and that's why I love Hicks so much too.

Oh, I know you said 90%, that doesn't mean that you're correct about that number or your claim that he's not a comedian.

Dylan Moran is probably my all time favorite comedian, with George Carlin, Bill Burr, Bill Bailey, Dave Chappelle all coming in close second. Ive never really seen the huge appeal of Louis CK but maybe hes just not my taste. But you cant go wrong with Dylan Moran, had the pleasure of seeing him live a few years ago, it was glorious.

Nah, f*ck that. Not even. Carlin was a straight up bitter, poisoned old coward who passed off social truths as comedy and died a self-loathing misanthrope. Most comedians are the same these days - cowards passing off truths as comedy. Hicks got it right, didn't let the message poison him, he was a gem, but was careless with his health for sure.

Tommy Tiernan has his moments but wont reach legendary status.


He is a legnd in Ireland, & rightfully so. One of my all time favourite people.
I mean he's funny, but his stuff that specific to Ireland, esp rural Ireland, is actually painfully funny. I remember being a teenager & my sides actually being sore from laughing at him & in particular his bit called 'the Latin class'.
I saw him last month or so on his most recent tour & it's the best he's been in a while I thought. It was a smaller, more intimate venue than I usually get to see him in these days & it was just one of the best gigs I've ever been to. I love him.


New season of Louie starts next week!
