Stand up comedians

Last night Clay, my buddy, and his girlfriend went to see Daniel Tosh in Minneapolis. I don't know if I have ever laughed so hard. Show was amazing. Lewis Black would be someone I would like to see as well.

Wish I could have been there, Tosh is probably my favorite comedian along with Mitch Hedberg (RIP). I saw Louis CK right before Christmas, his show was pretty good.
opulence, I has it.

I'm a fan of Lewis Black. Richard Prior. Old George Carlin. Carlin has this one about Airline Announcements that cracks me up everytime I'm on the plane b/c no matter what airline its pretty much word for word from his skit.

I saw Brian Regan last week in CR. He was hysterical as always. I'd say he's my favorite.

Eugene Mirman is intense...

Saw that last night. I realize he was a rated R comic before Full House, but it seems like he was trying too hard with the raunchy stuff this time around.

Give me Dave Attell: Captain Misery.

Right now it doesn't get much better than Jim Norton. His last HBO Special Monster Rain is a must rent if you haven't seen it, and he has a new stand up series on HBO in about a month that he will host that will have good up and coming comedians.

Some other great ones I didn't see mentioned. Greg Geraldo, Bill Burr, Jim Jeffries, Jim Brewer, Jim Gaffigan, Larry Reeb(Good ole Uncle Lar) and Steven Lynch.
Is this the line for the beer, or the line for the coupons for the beer?
