Re: Top 10 Comics

I see Russell Brand hasn't made your list. πŸ˜ƒ

Re: Top 10 Comics

he did not.

This is the only art-forum where all my favorites are American. And I've checked out hundreds of stand-up comedians throughout my life, either on TV, Internet, or live. I did go to the Melbourne Comedy Festival in Australia, and I actually paid $65 (Australian dollar was worth more than the USD back then) for this Canadian comic who had a good description in this program, and I even saw him in the restroom. He said "I come here (Australia) for the bathrooms" and his show sucked. I could tell he was a bit buzzed, but his material sucked. He was some curmudgeon with no substance. Saying "People suck" over and over is boring, but others liked him.

A few days later, these guys in my hostel were talking about this "10 for 10" (10 amateur comedians for $10), and there was this 18-yr old Australian guy who was MUCH better than the established Canadian comedian.

Jonathan Winters. He had a bit where he asks if you feel weird about changing in front of your dog, and I was a kid in the 60s and was weirded out when I did change in front of her so it hit home.

Re: Favorite Stand-Up Comedians?

I prefer British comedy and comedians. Any of these are worth listening to.

Re: Favorite Stand-Up Comedians?

He is a really nice guy though. I have met him several times. My only concern for him is that I think he did himself a big disservice when he tried to gwt on SNL for 15 years.

Seriously if they turn you down you can try a second time a few years later. But to try to get on for a decade and a half. Thats just cray cray. You demean yourself when you do that. Mike is a big Improv guy.

He has been part of their troupe for many many years now. The Upright Citizen's Brigade.

Whoa Hold on there Kitty. I like the guy personally as I have already stated. The movies he starred in he personally financed with thr additional help of some "Angel Investors" You see when you have been in the business like I have, You tend to know a LOT more than the regular public.

Again I am not trying to denigrate the guy. He is a sweetheart and makes a pretty good living.
