    Jim Gaffigan is alright...I got to hear a LOT of him a couple of weeks ago when he came to Maui...local independent radio was wearing him out. He had a few lines that cracked me up....does a lot of food humor....but his "whispering lady show critic" bit gets old quickly. I still don't know who that's supposed to be...someone actually in the audience? His mother, maybe?


    Oh, yeah...faves: Hedberg, Bill Hicks, Chris Rock. And I don't care ONE BIT for "blue-collar" comedians...redneck just isn't funny to me at all.

    I think it's supposed to be what a fan in the audience is thinking. But yeah, it does sort of get old by the end of the show.

    i have no idea why he is so popular. maybe it's because this generation has been deprived a truly great, young comic and hacks like carlos mencia and dane cook have been elevated to God status by default?

    Very true. To just a casual fan of stand up, Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia are the most prominent comedians going right now. They get the most exposure on television. But there are TONS of great comedians if you scratch the surface. But since most people don't do that, you get people like Cook and Mencia that get pushed to the forefront, even though neither are really that funny (despite the fact that both have been accused of stealing jokes, you would think they would be decent comedians if they're stealing other people's material).
