yeah. really looking forward to jeselnik. he's one of my current favorites.

as for donald glover, his shit is good and he's a lot more polished than you'd think for as little as he's been doing it. very high energy delivery and great material.

Jeselnick is phenomenal! He's particularly great live. Have you seen the material he did on that HBO show, Down & Dirty with Jim Norton? Awesome stuff.

I'll give Donald Glover a look-up on YouTube or something. He's ridiculously funny during the "post-show" bits they show during the credits. I can imagine him doing well in a stand-up environment.

Erm. Depends on who you ask. And it depends on your definition of "British." Jim Jefferies is technically Australian, and recently moved to Los Angeles but...He spent a solid couple of years building what I perceive to be a fairly large fanbase over in England.

And Jim Jefferies is ten times funnier than the vast majority of comedians from the States. One of my all-time favorites.

Just found out that this is finally seeing a CD/DVD release in the next week or so:



Ridiculously solid special. Now I can stop watching the copy I burned to DVD from SpikeTV!

Haha. Jefferies is a bit more, uh, on the vulgar side, I guess one could say? Haha. But Gervais is funny as hell! But I absolutely loathe Russel Brand, both as an actor and a comedian. To me, it seems like he's a bit of a one-trick pony. If you think that one-trick is funny, more power to ya'. Just not my thing. Haha.

Joe Rogan, on the otherhand, I find to be absolutely brilliant. I just wish he toured a bit more--I'm yet to be able to catch him live. His perspctive on things is pretty unique, if you ask me.

Aziz Ansari is hosting the MTV Movie Awards. Here's hoping he can slip in a dig at MTV for not knowing how to appropriately market the brilliance of Human Giant.

Someone might want to reccomend that the stand-up comedy recc's thread get merged with this or something to that effect. Apparently there's far more interest in stand-up comedy around here than I initially thought. HAH!

Anyway. Found this on YouTube the other day: Anthony Jeselnick doing a Dane Cook impression. Fuckin' brilliant/awesome:

He's one of those "no idea who he was until I googled him and saw his face" comics. Haha. I just looked him up and checked out something he did on Preimum Blend. Funny shit!

Just in case anyone's interested: All sorts of stand-up bootlegs, hard-to-find, etc. in this forum.

A wide variety of stuff in there from Bill Hicks to Patrice O'Neal, Eugene Mirman to Louis CK, et cetra. Good stuff!
