Saw Ross Noble live recently - haven't laughed so much in years

 

Aye Noble is pure class...His dvd from last years tour is coming start of november...4 discs with like 3 shows ...can't wait!

 

Ricky Gervais' 2 live shows were brilliant as well so if you haven't seen them yet get on it!

Omid Djalili (had to get Google to help me with the spelling).

 

He's excellent live, I went to see him last year at the Theater Royal.  I also enjoyed Lee Evans, wile Patrick McGuinness was ok.

 

As someone else mentioned Bill Bailey's stand up is fantastic at times, if a bit wierd at others.

Lee Mack

 

Marcus Brigstocke

 

Haven't actually seen him do a stand up routine but I'd imagine Frankie Boyle would be very good.

Bill Hicks - Best. Comedian. Ever.

 

Was concerned no-one had mentioned Hicks.  Thank fuck someone did.

 

"A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back, he's really going to want to see a fucking cross? Ow! Maybe that's why he hasn't shown up yet...it's like going up to Jackie Onassis wearing a sniper rifle pendant... Just thinking of John, Jackie. We love him. Trying to keep that memory alive, baby. [mimes shooting a rifle] I did that routine in Fyffe, Alabama, and after the show these three rednecks came up to me. 'Hey, buddy! C'mere! Hey Mr. Comedian! C'mere! Hey buddy, we're Christians and we don't like what you said!' I said 'Well, then forgive me.' Later, as I was hanging from the tree..."

 

Eddie Murphy did some good standup (yes, once upon a time, he did good things).  Steve Martin (same thing there).  Richard Pryor was amazing.  George Carlin is great.  Chris Rock.

 

Oh, Steven Wright!  Not the British DJ twat, the American deadpan guy:

 

Do they have reserved parking for non-handicapped people at the Special Olympics?

 

Jerry Seinfeld is good too, though you know what you're going to get with him, it's still good stuff, honed to a ridiculous level of polish.  David Copperfield of the standup world.
