    Who are the best comedians over there atm?

    I've started looking into more lesser known comedians over here and I'm finding some very funny people who are very cheap to go and watch, so I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of any particularly good US performers to view online as I need all the cheering up I can get with my job.

    Canadian comedians I've only recently been made aware of is Stewart Francis who is very funny, it's just a shame that his material is very limited, also Tom Stade is excellent. Rich Hall and Reginald D Hunter are US ones I like but I'm sure there are many more.

    Just my humble opinion but Ross Noble and Danny Bhoy are the funniest bastards on the face of the planet. You need look no further than the UK.

    But back to your question, I'm not aware of any up and comers but I'd be interested to see the list that gets brought up here.

    Doug Stanhope was brought to my attention by an English comedian named Gary Delaney who said he is possibly the most evil comedian out there ............. but very funny

    Coincidently, the banner that was up while I was reading this thread was advertising that Lewis Black will be in my area mid November.

    I'm not all that up on who is the "hot" comic right now but I do like LB's work.

    Personally, I usually go for the cleaner angle usually.

    Jim Gaffigan
    Brian Regan

    For a little more color:

    Ron White
    Pablo Francisco (The movie sketch)
    Craig Shoemaker (Love master is hilarious)

    I went and saw Jim Gaffigan over Labor Day weekend. Just flat-out funny as hell. I love all of his stuff that I have seen. His bits are clean, for the most part, so my kids can watch/listen to him too.

    "My parents never took me camping......Because they loved me." :laugh:


    On the flip side of that is Lisa Lampinelli. I saw her live last year and needed my inhaler half-way through. A modern-day version of Dice Clay with her totally Un-PC act.

    Louis C.K. I like also. And Dane Cook.
