Who's your favorite comedian and do you remember a favorite joke or bit they did?

I am so bad about remembering comedian names.

My all time favorites are Jerry Seinfeld and George Carlin.

Kevin James!! (from 'King of Queens')

Right now, the only bit I can think of from him is when he is describing how he feels when eating fast food, especially a Big Mac -- as if he was hit in the with a tranquilizer dart!! It's just a riot watching him explain this situation....and it feels so true anymore! lol

There are two comics I saw several years ago at our local comdy club (Laugh Factory in Hollywood).

One was a little red headed guy - a whisp of a thing really - and he was talking about how music now a days (this was during the east coast west coast rap wars between bad boy records and death row records) was all about how "I F'd your wife and I'm gonna kill you, yo Mer Fer" and back when he was a kid it was more like "do you really want to hurt me? Do you really want to make me cry?" I was nearly on the floor.

Then there was this girl who's parents had immigrated from Romania and you know that cultural idiosyncrasies are ALWAYS hilarious - her poor parents! SHe also talked about how when you were little during the summer time and you'd just wear your bathing suit all day - even sleep in it and when you had to pee you just pulled it over to the side HA HA

Okay so clearly I'm not a comedian but it was VERY funny!

I wish expanded cable wasn't almost 40 buckaroos a month so I could see and enjoy more guys like Shoemaker... can't place him.

I love observational humorists... they see the quirkiness and humor of life in a unique way. Others who do that exceptionally well are Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, George Wallace, and Tim Allen.

Years ago when we did have expanded cable, I saw Rob Becker doing about 10 - 15 mins. of what has become his "Defending the Caveman" touring thing. I *so* want this to come out on video/DVD. Here are a coupla website opinions/reviews that give you a good idea of what his schtick is all about... it is truly wonderful and hilarious. I'm sure sociologists and psychologists find it even funnier that I do.

I can't remember his name, but he does this bit with these puppets - he's a vantriliquist (sp?) and his puppets are Peanut - this little purple guy, Walter - an old man, and the Jalepeno on a stick! LOL! He's quite funny and every time he comes to Cleveland he is sold out and I have never been able to see him live...though I think he might be in Vegas the next time we go! Every time I see him on tv - even if it's the same routine I've seen a million times - I am in tears from laughing so hard!

BTW - I used to like George Carlin, but I saw him live in Vegas once and he was sooooo bad...I would say about 25% of the audience actually walked out on him! No kidding! He was terrible and it was the same bit he did on tv...he just wasn't good live I guess.

How could I forget the classic "How Not to Get Your A$$ Kicked By the Police" by Chris Rock.
