    I love stand up comedy and i have had a few nights out at the comedy store in london.

    But if i was to choose mainstream stand up acts to recomend i would say, Jimmy Carr is one of the funniest men to walk the planet. I have both of his DVDs and they are amazing. I am going to see him live in december and i hope he will not disapoint.

    Well worth a watch.

    Razz - if you're a Richard Pryor fan his daughter Rain is at Ediniburgh at the mo and then going down to london for a couple of shows (not sure where - read it in Sunday Times - will go and check). Supposedly very funny in a similar style to her dad... even does some of his old material at times.

    Chappelle in Washington DC starts of a little slow but gets better, part two is also great.

    Has anyone heard Larry David doing stand up? I'm a big Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Woody Allen fan, and I've heard the Woody Allen stand up CDs he did in the 60s and obviously seen Jerry Seinfeld, but never Larry David. I've always wanted to though.

    Man, this thread has made me go back through my CD collection. At one point I had more stand-up albums than music. Good to see Hicks, early Allen, and (especially) Lewis Black get a mention. Surprised none of the oldies have brought up the legend that is Bob Newhart. I'd also like to recommend - although he's certainly not for everybody - Doug Stanhope. He has a handful of CDs out, the best of which is called Sicko. Worth it for his legendary "Banana lady" routine.

    Edited to add: also worth a listen are Dana Gould's Funhouse (available for free download from his website) and anything by Tim Wilson (early rather than later).

    I have a question:
    I remember hearing a great standup routine, but I cant remember who it was by. The guy was describing going out drinking on a worknight, he would look at his watch, and say, "as long as I get six hours sleep, im cool" then he would keep drinking, look at his watch again, and say "as long as I get five hours sleep, im cool" and so on...

    It WAS funny when I heard it...

    I've been scouting the internet for more Dave Chapelle clips - are any of his shows being shown on british tv yet? And if not why bloody not? The black george bush routine is one of the funniest things i've seen in years.

    Other than that - i saw Paul Xenon (Zenon?) at Jongleurs in Camden a while back. Brilliant ventriloquist technically and incredibly funny too.

    "just spend an hour arguing against artificial turf"

    then later

    "just spend an hour arguing FOR artificial turf"

    I think I had the tape as well - it was a compliation from the montreux comedy festival iirc.

    Here's the routine, but who originally did it?

    This page should keep some of you busy for the rest of the day. Most of the clips are extremely funny (most aren't safe for work). Highlights include Doug Stanhope's Banana Lady and Travis Simmon's take on Sam Jackson in Star Wars.

    Laugh and the world laughs with you.

    Bill Bailey is without a doubt the best comedian on the planet. I don't think he reuses that much of his material. Only here and there, and certainly doesn't spoil any enjoyment of any of his DVDs.

    Practically everything that comes out of his mouth is on a different level of hilarious than anything like Evans, Izzard, Moran, Gervais, Carr, anyone else I can think of that I find really funny. Brilliantly random, brilliantly funny, his persona on stage is instantly likeable and funny, and in now way pretentious. He's simply a genius.
