Like with The Sitcom Thread, I wasn't too sure about making multiple threads on comedians. I suppose this can be just like the sitcom thread, but with stand-up comedians. List your favorites, discuss which comedians you like, or post bits or entire shows from them if you feel like it. I actually got into stand-up comedians very late, and only got into a few of them so far.

Oh yeah, and if you also feel like it, post URLs on where they could be found on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for easy access in this thread. :p

These are my favorites comedians so far. (Or some that I would occasionally listen to and watch.)

George Carlin
Lenny Bruce
Bill Hicks
Sam Kinison
Andrew Dice Clay
Jerry Seinfeld
Bob Saget
Doug Stanhope
Jim Norton
Jim Jefferies
Louis CK
Chris Rock
Chris Tucker
Richard Pryor
Eddie Murphy

Tig Notaro is my current favorite.

I love Zach Galifianakis' stand up, moreso than his movie career.

I think I'm more into podcasts right now. Comedy Bang Bang, Professor Blastoff, How Did This Get Made?, Harmontown, This Feel Terrible, Call Chelsea Peretti, Nocturnal Emotions...there is a lot of great stuff out there (and even more shit). Anyone else?

Didn't we already have a stand-up thread?

Anyway, like blackholesun, a lot of the stuff at Earwolf is great. There have been a lot of really good Comedy Bang Bangs so far this year and I wanted to mention the show too on IFC. The first season is on Netflix and is great and the second half of the second season starts again in a few weeks.

Oh, you're right. I actually forgot to check out it on Google. Sorry about that. Here's the older thread.
