Stand up comedy GOAT’s

For me the top 5 of all time (in no particular order)..

Richard Pryor
Dave Chapelle
Eddie Murphy
Bill Hicks
Steve Martin



Agree? Or disagree?

How has Lee Evans been mentioned once on here? He's one of the funniest guys on stage. The sounds he makes and the expressions he pulls are hilarious.

5 pages in and a lot of big names missing, so here's a few that are so far underappreciated.

Some of them rely strongly on the material, some of them are more performers (a decent chunk of Sam Kinison's stuff sounds a bit dated now, but then so does some of Eddie Murphy's AIDS material), but if I had to nail my colours to a single mast, I'd recommend Mitch Hedberg, who is responsible for arguably the greatest one-liner in standup history.

Anyway:

Woody Allen
Lenny Bruce
Joan Rivers
Jackie Mason
Jerry Sadowitz
Simon Munnery/The league against tedium
Steven Wright
Norm Mcdonald
Mitch Hedberg
Doug Stanhope

Was looking for Jerry Sadowitz material on YouTube the other day, there’s virtually nothing
Remember watching “The pallbearers review” regularly back in the day

i went to see him live, ended up quite near the stage, and spent half the show in fear that he would let rip at me.

the story i like about him is how he made a bet that he could call nelson mandela a c@nt as part of a joke...which he managed with ease, naturally.

Don, you’re back!

And agree with that list - especially Doug Stanhope. Soooo dark.

always been here my boy!

but i got bored of posting back in the mourinho days, when the united board was in general meltdown, and given what i see these days - 28 pages of winston vs TOOR anyone? - i'm not sure i'll ever become a regular again.

still, your loss is p0rnhub's gain.

Mourinho left almost a year and a half ago You've not posted in over 3 years! Good to see you're alive though.

but there's always new material being added to p0rnhub - they even have coronavirus p()rn, complete with masks - so once you get lost in there, it can be difficult to drag yourself out.

3 years though, still only seems like yesterday that i was boring you all stiff with tales of the amortisation of transfer fees in united's accounts.

I tried looking for Sadowitz stuff on YT a few years ago and couldn't find anything. I don't know if he has it blocked or whatever. Closest you can come to it is seeing him in the video for Ebenezer Goode.

He was mentioned just three times on page 5 only. I don't usually watch stand up comedy. But he's one of my favourites for sheer comedy. Russell Peters used to be good too, but I haven't watched him in years and feel his Asian racial jokes are old now.

Oh, and I've never seen a full set from either of them, but Jeff Ross and Greg Giraldo do particularly brutal work at the various roasts.

Jeff Ross is the king of the roast. Love his work. For pure silliness and trying to subvert the formula of the roast I like what Andy Samberg did here...
