I like to watch performances by people like Stephen Lynch, Rodney Carrington, Lewis Black, Demetri Martin, and Jeff Dunham, personally.

Chris Rock is my all-time favorite

He came near me recently but I was unable to attend.

Tickets were $50, $100, and $150. Ridiculous.

No offense to anybody but I really can't stand Dane Cook. I think he's really overrated. I have a lot of friends who think he's the funniest person alive and give him so much credit, but he doesn't really tell jokes. They are more laughing at him, than anything.

I know its my opinion, but does anybody else agree with me?

Stephen Lynch makes him look like crap.

But he does have a couple o' good lines...

Literally two.

I find him funny, but it is mainly his method of delivery, I think, that makes him funny.

I don't know, I laugh at his stuff, but I hate the fact that I don't hate him.

Demitri Martin is a lot funnier, anyways!

Demetri Martin is hilarious. I love his branch of humor and he is so clever.

Stephen Lynch is definatly one of my favorites, although now that I've heard all his material so much its not as exciting as it used to.
