Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

I AGREE COMPLETELY.

Jim Gaffigan, Nick Swardson and Demetri Martin all happen to be my favorite comedians. Slap Brian Reagan into that list and you and I could be best friends.

Dane Cook is an talentless assbag. Carlos Mencia is just not worth talking about. Jamie Kennedy...well, let's just say Mask 2: Son of the Mask.

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

Overrated:
Jim Breuer (Except when he was on Opie and Anthony, then his act actually seemed funny)
Mitch Hedburg (Im sorry, never got him)
Dane Cook
Carlos Mencia
Dave Attell (I love his act, but he almost never varies his routine. I heard most of the stuff on his CD back in 99 or 2000 when he was on Stern).

5 Essential Classic Comedy CD's
1. Bob Newhart - Button Down mind of Bob Newhart
2. Sam Kinison - Louder than Hell (on Tape or MP3 only)
3. Bill Hicks - Arizona Bay (although the musical transitions between tracks suck)
4. George Carlin - FM & AM (or Classic Gold, it covers the important 72-73 years)
5 Richard Pryor - Live on the Sunset Strip

Also recommend:
1. David Cross - Its Not Funny
2. Jim Norton - Trinkets I Own, Made From Gorilla Hands
3. Bill Maher - Im Swiss (DVD or MP3 only)
4. Jon Stewart - Unleavened (very hard to find HBO special but MP3's and videos are around the net)
5. Robert Schimmel - Unprotected

EXTREMELY overrated. What the fk does he do with his voice all the time? How can anyone find this funny? Well.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence - Carl Sagan

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

The "voice" he does is usually what an audience member must be thinking after he tells one of his jokes

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

How could Bill Hicks or David Cross possibly be underrated, considering that Bill Hicks is comedy's dead rockstar and David Cross is both popular and acclaimed?

"Yeah, I'm not racist, I just don't think black people are funny."

Have you listened to every black comedian? Oh, let me guess, you don't want to because they'll just talk about their "black stuff", right? None of the comedians you mentioned could hold a candle to Richard Pryor, Dave Chappelle, Rasheed Thurmond ...

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

yeah i agree, i would probably change it to

underrated
1. mitch fatel
2. nick swardson
3. jim gaffigan (best comedian out there but isnt as underrated as guys above)

overrated
1. dane cook (not even remotley funny, but most praised commedian)
2. carlos mencia
3. ehh chris rock or larry the cable guy

honorable mention for underrated is daniel tosh

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted


Overrated:

Robin Williams
Sarah Silverman

Finally, someone mentions Sarah Silverman. I agree. Not only is she overrated - but she shouldn't be doing comedy at all. Her routines are tasteless and she takes "being offensive" just a little too far. She's plain just not funny. I'm suprised she's gotten as far ash she has. Jeez.

Would Steven Wright be considered underrated? I've only seen his special about a year ago(it was hilarious though)

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

I can't believe only two people mentioned Patton Oswalt!
I don't get the chance to catch a lot of comedians often, but when I do get the chance...

Underrated
-Jim Gaffigan (although a lot of posters are probably right in saying he's gaining recoginition)
-Patton Oswalt (everything I've had the chance to hear from him has been very funny imho)
-Tom Papa (I've only seen him on Conan a couple of times, but he was very funny!)

Overated
-Dane Cook (Some of his material is good, but he's way too praised)
-Carlos Mencia (All of his jokes are the same if I'm not mistaken, he tries to be controversial, but that "trying" might be the most laughable part)
-Sarah Silverman (I've never actually seen her stuff, but she seems like a white, female Mencia, except maybe more potty jokes)

Seeing all of the lists on these pages, I'll have to track these guys down!

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

Ok the most underrated standup comedian is hands down Aziz Ansari. No one has mentioned him and I think that is a shame. Zach Galifianakis is also incredible.


I don't wanna die without any scars. So come on; hit me before I lose my nerve.

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

JERRY SEINFELD!

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

Sorry I can't do just three here!!

Underrated:

Greg Giraldo(fantastic in everything I've seen him in, and also does roasts maybe better than anyone.)
Jim Norton
Tommy Davidson(where is this guy?! He's brilliant and hasn't done stand-up in years!!)
Greg Fitzsimmons
Jim Gaffigan
Jeff Dunham
Richard Herring(he's growing on me more and more lately, and on a side note is GREAT with hecklers too!)
Jimmy Carr
Norm McDonald
D.L. Hughley(easily the most constantly underappreciated Black comic, he should've had Martin Lawrence's career.)
Pablo Francisco
Lisa Lampanelli
Wanda Sykes(best female comedian along with Lisa.)

Overrated:

Dane Cook
Joe Rogan(can get a little annoying)
Cedric The Entertainer
Bill Bellamy(I'm sorry but this guy's not very good at his stand up)
Martin Lawrence(You So Crazy is the ONLY thing going for him, and even then...)
Jamie Kennedy(can't stand him...UGH!)
George Lopez
Larry The Cable Guy

Living Legends:

Gilbert Gottfried (NO ONE is better at pulling gold out of filth.)
Dave Chappelle(enough said.)
Eddie Murphy(he may have an erratic film career, but his 80's stand-up was untouchable and his SNL skits kill EVERY time.)
Don Rickles(83 years old and sharper than most a third his age!)
Chris Rock

Guys To Look For:

Joe Klocek(great San Francisco comic--check out his youtube video of him schooling a heckler--WOW!)
Joe Matarese
Shannon Gettins

Re: 3 most underrated stand up comedians and most overratted

Joe Klocek schooling the heckler was great.

Best comics of all time lists can get pretty long and debatable. But I would have to say that my fovorite of all time is Rodney Dangerfield. A true master that noone could touch. He encouraged and gave so many comics their big break.
