I like Comedians, but I don't have a favorite. What about you? To get things started, I've mentioned those that are popular, or have been in the past. Tastes are tastes, and popularity doesn't mean anything to me, but just so you know, I prefer satirical humor that's spiced with counter-cultural undertones. I'm sure there are many comics that I've neglected to option, so go ahead and extol the virtues (and disgraces) of those Feisty Stand-ups, Gifted Actors, Midnight Poets and Unscrupulous Knuckleheaded Power Linguists.

That's who I was going to mention! I've only seen him once but he was fantastic.

Steven Wright is another one of my favourites. I love his delivery. I found a few quotes:

Sponges grow in the ocean. That just kills me. I wonder how much deeper the
ocean would be if that didn't happen. -- Steven Wright

All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met.

OK, so what's the speed of dark?

You can't have everything. Where would you put it? -- Steven Wright

My dental hygienist is cute. Every time I visit, I eat a whole package of Oreo cookies while waiting in the lobby. Sometimes she has to cancel the rest of
the afternoon's appointments. -- Steven Wright

I was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.
So I said, "Got any shoes you're not using?" -- Steven Wright

You know how it is when you're reading a book and falling asleep, you're
reading, reading...and all of a sudden you notice your eyes are closed? I'm
like that all the time. -- Steven Wright

You know how it is when you're walking up the stairs, and you get to the top,
and you think there's one more step? I'm like that all the time.
-- Steven Wright

Dave Chappelle's 'mastery of parody' is almost, dare I say it, transcendental.

I dont watch too much stand up comedy, but Joe rogan is fucking hillarious. Look up joe rogan on youtube and watch the one where he tells off a heckler, one where some carlos mencia steals peoples jokes and gets told off by joe, a piece about noahs arc is great and he does a sweet rant on dmt which is where I got the idea to extract it. Fucking hillarius dude, very insighteful on his philosophies on life and he's the shit announcing UFC. I guess what I'm saying is Joe Rogan is my fucking hero hehe. :bow:
