    In this thread we discuss our favorite stand-up comedians.

    My all time favorite is probably Mitch Hedberg. I remember seeing his Comedy Central special a long time ago, and I got a couple of his CDs. He was amazing - it's a shame we had to lose him so early. I wish I had seen him in Boise (especially the time with the ducks and Subway.)

    Other than Mitch, I'd probably say (in no specific order): George Carlin, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Black, and Eddie Izzard.

    No offense to others here, but I hate Dane Cook and Jeff Foxworthy.

    Classic. RIP
    Those are good

    Dave Attell rocks, his Insomniac show was on during the height of my drinking days. good times.

    Patton Oswalt's stand up can be pretty damn good.

    Lewis Black, Brian Regan, and I've only heard one Steven Wright album but I loved it.
    Also Conan O'Brien, never heard any of his stand-up routines but I love that man.
