Someone recommend some good comedians. I've been on a steady diet of Russell Peters and Demetri Martin lately and need something new.

Here are my top 10 favs:

Eddie Murphy
Demetri Martin
Mitch Hedberg
Jake Johannsen
Brian Regan
Stephen Wright
Bill Cosby
Chris Rock
Russell Peters
Richard Pryor

I haven't even heard of half those people.

Why new? What's wrong with the classics.

Go get some Firesign Theater.

I've always liked Bob Newhart's stuff.

I commend your taste in comedians, Mr. III.

I recommend Chapelle's Killing Me Softly stand up. That's the only one I really think is great of his, but it's brilliant. He's fallen off as a stand up since (his newest special was really, really lame), but Killing 'em Softly is gold.

I can't think of anyone else right now. This thread has, however, inspired me to hunt down some Brian Regan clips on youtube.

George Carlin especially his early stuff. :D

Oh there are about 50 more comedians I dig, including Emo and Chappelle, but I'm hoping to find someone I haven't heard of before. I stumbled across Demetri Martin by accident and he's absolutely brilliant. There have got to be a ton of great obscure comedians out there.

Thanks for the recommendations. Keep 'em coming!

Cool, I'll check him or her out.

Andy.....I meant Andy Griffith. That "what it was ...was football" thing was just too...too... Actually it sucked. I meant Kathy Griffith, and I'll stick by her like a potty joke.

Bring on your bannination, striving to set free!

Don't know if you can get the movie over there, but check out this site. One of the funniest movies I have seen.
