Not my all time fav comedian... she does make me laugh



Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles

On HBO currently, is a very small intimate stand-up routine. 39 people in the very small room/stage. Just like the old night clubs.

Sarah Silverman is very cute and counter that with some very twisted ideas, you get a unique blend of humor delivered. It’s a laid back hour, with some gut punching lines. She definitely stands out. Sarah Silverman is not for everybody. She fits in with Louis C. K. laughs. Definitely treading the line of taste. I never got offended, and laughed out loud on occasion. It was a fun hour.

Just watched this: Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais, and Louis CK talk about comedy for 50 minutes.

Let me preface, some of the comedians I talk about might not be my ‘favorite’ comedian, but more likely, they bring the funny… consistently.

I see a lot of comedians and like movies, most do nothing for me or worse… suck. But on occasion, I get to see and hear some stellar comedians.

This weekend, I caught two new (new to me) comedians, who I just thoroughly enjoyed.

First up is...

Dwayne Kennedy. I caught most, but not all of his standup on Showtime. He has a laid back style with some great solid punch lines. I want to catch his whole act, but don’t see it scheduled. Highly recommend.

Steve Byrne is another wonderful surprise hit with me. I caught his hour long special on Netflix and laughed hard throughout his routine. I think comedians are funny because of the ounce of truth in their jokes. Steve Byrne brings it home and so close to real. He just knows how to present it to audiences in a very funny way. Apparently I’m late to the game on recognizing this guy as top notch comedian. The guy has been around. Currently in Sullivan and Son (TBS), I did not even know about. Highly, highly recommend.

Elon Gold - Chosen & Taken

I’ve never heard of Elon until I saw his special on Netflix. I picked it because it had 4 stars.
They were right… Elon is very funny. I laughed out loud a lot. His routine is full of visuals and make up a good part of the humor. He’s kind of Russell Peters and goes after ethnic groups. But as Elon points out, his Jewish heritage have the most stereotypes and he pretty much nails them too.

Highly, highly recommend.

You know what's funny is that I've known Elon through many things, but never through his stand-up. He has always been a guest on this or a guest on that or interview here and there.

Trevor Noah; African American


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r1-98WtM8Y

Noah is new young comedian from Africa. The guy has got some skills. He knows how to deliver and he talks what he knows. Black, Whites and ethnicity in general is a bulk of his latest hour stand up. His observations on different groups is actually fresh.  Throughout he brings up subjects that end in… “That’s Insane”. And it is what he is talking about. Pointing out what we take for granted, put in laser focus and it does sound insane.

Check him out. Very funny man.

Bill Bellemy

So a little backstory. On occasion I check the various channels OnDemand comedy products. In particular, standup routines. I saw Bill Bellamy’s name several times and I thought I knew who he was. An old comedian from the 80’s. So I would pass him up. I could never be more wrong. Bill Bellamy is recent Black comedian making strong strides to becoming in demand.

Last night I made a HUGE mistake of drinking some pretty strong tea to help level this lingering cold. Wrong… I consumed so much caffeine; I was awake until 4 AM. I did get to catch Bellemy’s latest on Showtime. I laughed through the entire show. I had tears in my eyes. I have found my newest favorite comedian.  I watched most of his Crazy Dirty Sexy tour and followed it up with a collection of stand up’s where Bellemy was the closing act. He is truly gifted at telling some of the funniest stories. And he’s a comedian to be watched. Not just listened to. His mannerisms and facial gestures amplify what he is saying.

Keep an eye out for Bill Bellemy. He will entertain you.

Jim Jefferies has a new stand-up special on Netflix I'm definitely going to check out.  And if I haven't shared it already, here's his brilliant bit about granting a friend dying of muscular dystrophy his final wish... to visit a pr ost itute.  It's one of the funniest things I've ever heard.  I stopped breathing because I was laughing so hard.  Obviously NSFW.

Jeffries is damn funny. Saw his first standup a little while ago.

I need to queue this.

Very Well Done. It's unfortunate, those drunks won't remember any of it.
