Your favorite comedy, and where to stick it

So, I really dig a lot of stand up comedy. Don't get me wrong, I hate most of it, but some of it I really dig. (And it's not all old ****, either.) This is just a place I'm going to throw up links I think are funny from time to time. Please feel free to post your own, the more the merrier.

(...from the movie "Comedians of Comedy," which has the double whammy of being full of people I think are damn funny and being full of street-level footage of a region I used to live in and love...)

I love stand-up as well. Funny thing is I even enjoy watching bad stand-up. Not because it's funny, but I like seeing whats out there, trying to analyze why they aren't funny, what 'category' they fall into, or how they could have made the joke better.

I was a big fan of the late Mitch Hedberg, and after his death really got into Demetri Martin. There are much longer clips, but here is probably my favorite joke of Demetri's

Do it! I want the comedy and was hoping you would show.

Nick has a PHD in comedy. Some concern themselves with the pressing issues of our day, Nick is content to just know all the funny stuff.

@Robert Gentel,
lol - well another personal favorite of mine is Louis CK. I saw him live, and it was the best stand up performance I've ever seen live, and probably ever will. I was at the club to see Dane Cook, but knew all his material. Louis CK I had never heard of before, and his material is now at the top of my favorites list. Seeing something that good for the first time LIVE, was priceless.

For something more recent, and for a relative nobody, I thought Gilbert Gottfried's speech at the Roast of Bob Saget was pretty good:

I normally don't find Friars club roasts funny, but always watch them. I'd like to take this time to say that I absolutely HATE shock-comic Lisa Lampanelli. She was also at the live show I mentioned above, and was the worst part of the night.

@Nick Ashley,
I loved that one, the first 5 minutes were great, he started to lose me when he went into his bathroom but then ended strong. Good stuff!

@Nick Ashley,
I thought you'd surely found the first example of Gilbert Gottfried being funny. But I was wrong.

@Robert Gentel,
I'm not saying he is good, or generally funny. And I did preface it with the fact that it was in a Friars Roast - What can I say, I liked it. Not something to watch repeatedly, and not particularly smart or clever, but it made me smile. Much better then the other Roasters, I thought.

Speaking of Bob Saget, I hear he raped and killed a girl in 1990...

BTW: It reminded me of this South Park clip:

I'll end the night with a little Jim Gaffigan. This one touches on wierd holiday traditions. His 'beyond the pale' routine is top-notch, but I'm worried he may be a 'one hit wonder' in that its his only good set. At any rate, he is coming to Omaha in about a month and a half, hopefully I will be able to go.

Patiodog posted a 'Comedians of Comedy' clip. That was put on (I believe) by one of the comedians, Patton Oswald. Been a fan of his for years, here is from his latest album:

@Nick Ashley,
Gaffigan!

I've seen the Gaff be consistently funny. Had tickets to see him here last year, but never made it to the show. (Bad habit -- buy tickets, then forget about them...)

@patiodog,
Good to he's consistent. Tickets are tough. I hate planning ahead, but stuff sells out...

Some comedians aren't very well represented on youtube, I was looking for some David Cross at one point, but wasn't finding much. I'll have to check out what you posted. I was also looking for some Ari Shaffir, but couldn't find anything great.
