    #1 Jim Gaffigan

    I love jokes about food...

    Re: Who are your favorite stand up comedians?

    Jerry Seinfeld has always made me laugh.
    I love watching Robin Williams when he goes with absolutely no script.
    Richard Pryor was remarkable.
    Gary Shandling had me in tears quite a few times.
    I always made a point to not miss a Steven Wright performance.
    I have only seen a couple of Jim Gaffigan performances - in fact, I don't know the name enough, but when I saw the bacon bit, I remembered some of his other acts I have seen. Great stuff.

    I am sure there are quite a few others, but I do not know their names enough.

    Bill Hicks and Mitch Hedberg.

    Also like Sam Kinison, and recently Dave Chappelle, but nobody comes close to Hicks and Hedberg.

    My brothers and I memorized his "Live In Concert" (1979). Simply phenomenal!

    I grew up listening to a "clean cut" George Carlin in the mid-60s when he was doing Hippy Dippy Weatherman and Indian Drill Sargent. Later on - Class Clown and Toledo Window Box were classics.

    Love Bill Cosby too. Wonderfulness and I Started Out As A Child were among his early bests.

    Then of course there was Cheech and Chong before they went into movies.

    When I was in the military I liked listening to Hudson and Landry. Losing Their Heads was a good one.

    Love Dave Attel and Greg Girardo. My buddy has an Attel cd that we listen to regularly. It's side-splitting. I thought his latest HBO special was a little flat though. The two Chappelle HBO shows were outstanding. I like Dane Cook, but he is suffering from overexposure now methinks.

    I didn't want to like Gaffigan, otoh, and did.

    Gaffigan could say just about anything with his delivery and it'd be funny.

    Dane Cook is funny when he's "on."
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Bob Saget's show makes me laugh a lot, but I can't figure out if it's because he's funny or if it's just that the Full House guy is saying a bunch of dirty things. Who cares which one it is, I guess.

    I saw Costaki at Crackers in Indianapolis 6 years ago, it was the first comedy show I'd ever been to. He was pretty good, I still have his CD somewhere.

    Brian Regan is the funniest and cleanest out there

    others-
    Jimmy Pardo: has done a hilarious CD of only audience ad-lib but really does have an act and a great podcast
    Geechy Guy: has more joke-jokes than anybody and most are funny and very clever (can also name any rollercoaster in the country)
    Greg Hahn: I laughed harder in the first 15 minutes of his act than any I've ever seen
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Jimmy Pardo's bit about cutting his own hair and then getting it fixed always makes me laugh no matter how many times I hear it.

    Do Flight of the Conchords count? I guess they are a comedy music duo. I noticed an avatar of them. They did a "documentary" on their trip to Austin for the big music festival that was hilarious.
