    I'm currently on a stand up comedy streak and running out of ideas of who to watch.. does anyone have any suggestions?

    I've been watching a lot of (in order of preference):

    - dave chapelle
    - ricky gervais
    - chris rock
    - dieudonne (non-english)

    but i'm starting to hit a dry patch.. anyone know any really hilarious stuff ?



    (I am expecting some possible flak because I may in the past have flamed 1-2 people for posting stuff that is completely unrelated to IM ... but I know there are some real classy gents (and ladies) on BHW which is why I would definitely follow up suggestions...)

    Why not go old school and watch Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, and so on?

    Bill Hicks is probably the most influential comedian to ever have existed, followed by George Carlin and Richard Pryor in that order. Tim Allen actually has some good older stuff, Louis C.K. (who is the basis for a lot of comedians today, and has always been getting ripped off with not being given credit where its due), Bob Saget is fucking hilarious but is an example that a T.V. show can lock you into a specific character type forever. Mitch Hedberg was (and still is) amazing, Joe Rogan is amazing, and I think Dave Chapelle was before his time, and even with his show and movies, is still under rated.
