A few years back a friend of mine let me listen to this comedian. His name is stephen lynch or something like that. I haven't followed his career but as far as I know he is a singer that does comedy songs. I personally think these guys are so much funnier than stand up. Anyway here is one of his funnier songs.

There was this one guy who was funny. I can't remember who he was. He was in a show when Sam Kinneson got his big chance so he was overshadowed. The only thing I remember was he used balloons as props and made himself into different characters with the balloons. It was a real long time ago. Then Kinneson followed and just totally knocked the doors off the building.

That bit by Carvy almost made me piss my pants when I saw that. He took something so meanial as well, chopping broccoli and made it funny. Some of these guys are whacked.

*One other thing that shocked the pants off me was seeing Robin Williams do stand up after growing up watching him in Mork and Mindy. Wow, what a totally different person.

Stephen Lynch is my gateway comedian. My favorite song by him and the first one I heard was the Bazleebob song. After that its Mitch Hedberg.

And you someone will say it sooner or later so I'll say it now: Dane Cook.

So far, all mentioned are amazing... Stephen Lynch's Live at the Del Rio is wondrous. The Comedians of Comedy kill me (especially Zach Galifianaf**k, whom I've seen live and nearly died from). Love Mitch Hedburg (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mitch_Hedberg)'s one-liners (may he rest in peace)... Another one who is often overlooked is Sean Cullen... his epic song "Wood, Cheese and Children" on his Comedy Central Presents (http://www.seancullen.com/av.php?id=1146762148) special is so choice... if I listen to it while I am doing anything, whatever I am doing loses and the laughter and tears win. I MUST sing along (to the dismay of those around me). Another one (that I sadly can't find online) is Tom Shillue's skit "I'm an Artist" seen on CC's Premium Blend. He basically just sits in a chair with a microcassette playing into the mic and sings a song about being a pretentious artist in order to get women to sleep with him. It's golden. 10 points to anyone who can find the clip online!

Edit: Sean Cullen link doesn't go where I thought, but oh well. Go find it, it's great!

in that same episode of premium blend i think their was a brother sister act that sang about incest with each other, that was pretty humerous....
HA!!--&gt;remember The amazing jonathan? Dimitri martin is alright with the alt comedy (before the daily show) and the twins (whose names i can't recall but guest starred in the dance off episode of it's always sunny) do the air-band version of 'keep on rollin' on the comedy central presents are rediculous.

My dream is that one of these days, someone will take him seriously... and two thousand morons will commit suicide, thinking there is nothing else to live for now that Dane Cook is dead. And the world will be free of 2,001 morons. The end.

Speaking of completely "traditional" comedy... This thread reminded me of The Aristocrats. That movie made me laugh and laugh and laugh. It's the only time you'll ever hear me say that Gilbert Gottfried is a freaking genius.

P.S. I also like The Aristocats, but that's less like a dirty joke and more like a cute cartoon. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I like the American version of Whose Line is it Anyway, especially the outtakes they can't show on the air. Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie play so well off of eachother. It's pretty tame comedy, but I like it.

*EDIT* ooo! Also the Perry Bible Fellowship. (http://pbfcomics.com/) Comic Strip, not a Comedian. Mentioned it in another thread.

Yes, the British version is MUCH better than the American version. No Drew Carey, no Wayne Brady.

Don't forget, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie started off on the British version.

And how can you have a conversation about unconventional comedians and not bring up Andy Kaufman? He's been gone for awhile, but there will never be anyone as bizarre and talented as him.

03-05-2008, 10:26 AM
Oh I haven't forgotten where they started. It's just that I haven't seen the British version in the past couple of years. no-one seems to be airing it anymore. Didn't Wayne make a couple of appearances in the original Bristish run?

Yeah, I could definitely do without Drew as well, but it's always fun to see him get torn a new one by one of the cast.

Throw Tom Green and ******* onto unconventional pile as well. There term "comedy" is debatable there.

Now that I think of it, he might have. I try not to think of him very much, though. Something about him just disturbs me.

And he's a local guy also, from Orlando.

See, it's not really stand-up, it's just jokes, like the kind you tell around the water cooler. Who does that anymore? The last FIFTEEN MINUTES of it is his version of "The Aristocrats" joke. I think I had fifty hernias during the show, 80% of which happened during the last 15 minutes and 90% of which are in my face and/or neck.

I would repeat some of the jokes here, but I'd be bant.

You've all seen the original version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? I'm quite pleased by that! I'm pretty sure Wayne Brady was never in it, Chip Esten and Greg Proops were though. There's repeats of it now

I'd say Paul Merton, Harry Hill, Bill Bailey and maybe Ross Noble

George Carlin, Robin Williams, and Bill Cosby are some of my favorites.

"Bill Cosby: Himself" I have extremely fond memories of while watching it with my parents when I was younger (teenage-ish). I've never seen my Dad laugh so hard in his life still to this day.

Edit: Add Ralphie May and Lewis Black to the list as well. They both have good stage presence.

Drew Carey aside, Whose line is one of the most consistently funny things on TV. I like Wayne Brady. He is one of the very best ad lib guys working. The stuff he comes up with on that show are amazing. The entire cast sits at the top of the heap for comedians. Except Drew. Wayne Brady was really funny the time he was on Chappel Show. He was so psychotic and out of character.

Bob Saget was beyond funny in the Aristocrats. Not someone you would expect to be so perverted.
I have been trying to find the audio online, but cannot. He actually did a version of that joke starring the Full House cast. Ohmigod.

George Carlin Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby are the best. Also Gallager. I like the guys who jab at society.
I also saw Carrot Top years ago. The guy annoyed me in the TV commercials, but his show was downright raunchy and side splitting.
