Simple enough question.

 

I've seen:

 

Tracy Morgan

Dave Chappelle (by far the best)

Donnell Rawlings

Eddie Griffin

Paul Mooney (he was way too old by this point. Fully regret going to this)

Reggie Ballard (Bruh Man)

Bill Cosby

 

Missed out on tickets to George Carlin, his last time in Baltimore.

Hedburg was the best I saw live, just a few days before his death.

 

I've also seen Gaffigan, Lewis Black, Tosh, David Cross.  Probably forgetting some others.

I've seen Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld.  Both hilarious.  I also saw Jay Leno, but he was only OK.

Chapelle.

Then Louis CK.

I was pleasantly surprised by Kevin Hart at Royal Farms.

I'm actually seeing Bill Burr tonight.

I've heard that Bill Burr is -fantastic- in person. 

 

His Philadelphia rant is still my favorite stand-up piece of all time. And it's a clusterfuck.

I saw him when I was in high school, definitely the best I’ve seen. I think it was at College Park but I’m not 100% sure.

Bernie Mac was my favorite. Honorable mention to Chappelle, George Lopez, and Carlin.

I am pretty sure Shack is thinking of PBR.

I love comics but I’ve never really gone to many shows. Ryan Hamilton was a guy we saw in a small club in New York and I was dying laughing. 7 years later he had a Netflix special. It was funny but I wasn’t rolling like I was at that show.

Saw Tom Green here locally not long ago and he was pretty damn funny. He didn’t have to resort to too much story telling about his time in movies or tv. He had actual bits that were hilarious.

Saw Hedberg once, and Lewis Black twice. Probably one of them.

 

I never went to many stand-up shows, even when I was big into stand-up. I was a "play the album 500x" guy, not a "see the up-and-comers at the club" guy.

I've not seen many at all, but I was blessed to get free tickets from my boss to see Dave Chappelle a couple years ago. I laughed the entire time. And what I appreciated the most was the surprise of seeing Ashee Larry open for him.

 

I've also seen the late David Brenner years ago in Vegas. He did a show entirely based on headlines from the previous week or two. Totally brilliant.

The MTV guy? Cool. Had no idea he went into comedy.

 

Louis CK was really funny, of course, the sexual predator thing knocks him down many notches.
