Among his peers, Dave Attell is considered the best club comedian.

Don't stand up during his performances also. When I saw him at the improv he was picking people off left and right.

Some yinzerette was sitting front row next to us at Dave Attell drunk as a skunk and proceeded to yell at him...the things he said to her were magical.

My group got to the improv early enough to almost get seated on the stage. I hurriedly said can we sit back a few rows? Im very glad I did.

They do this every time. They try to put everyone up by the stage hoping that it is someone who is new or doesn't know any better and just accepts where they are seated.

I've been listening to John Mulaney through most of today so far. Good stuff.

Yeah, Mulaney is one of the better recent comics IMO. I also like Pete Holmes, both his stand-up and his nerdist podcast. In fact I recommend checking out the Mulaney episode, it's pretty solid (he has mostly comedians on).

Rob Delaney: Live at the Bowery Ballroom was just added to netflix instant. He's hilarious on twitter and his standup was pretty great as well.

I drove from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon and then to San Diego a few years ago. I took back roads the whole time. My rental car had XM and I listened to the comedy stations pretty much the whole time. Bob Newhart is one funny dude when it comes to stand up.

Steven Wright might be my favorite.

This guy is a trainwreck. I hated him on Best Week Ever and any of those other VHS specials. He was on Jesilnek's show a month or so ago and broke out laughing like a toddler every time he said something, or someone said something to him. You'd think it was his first time in front of an audience.

Sounds about right. It's concerning that he's popular.

Dan Cummins is not funny at all. He should get a bat to the back of his head once for every time he has said "that joke is called".

watched L CK Oh My God over the weekend, thought it was good. Also watched Chappelles killing them softly which is always hilarious.

This needs to be stated and re-stated a million times; Kyle Kinane is simply amazing. Seriously. Youtube "God of Thunder" by him, and just sit back.

If you've got the $, just get his two albums. I just love his delivery...he can essentially take one thought he's had and just stretch it for ten minutes, hilariously.
