Stoked to see Ali Saddiq and Stavros fans on here...

Thereís about to be many specials on the horizon because dudes have been working on materiel during the pandemic and not being to travel until recently.

Joe List had a special come out a couple months ago that kills on youtube. Paul Virzi just had a Netflix special come out recently that I havenít watched yet but have heard good things about.

On the horizon Iíve heard Ari Shaffir has a special coming up soon, Ian Fidance as well, and Big Jay Oakerson in the next few months.

Also, I canít think of any female comedians named here and with no thought off the top of my head Bonnie McFarlane, Kim Congden, and Ms Pat are the ones that pop up. Shout out also to Dina Hashem for that one roast battle clip that I canít post at the moment.

I completely agree that the new Stavros special was great! It is nice having so many come out randomly where I don't expect it, and across different platforms as well.
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

Backing you on on the Stavros mention, that was amazing. His crowd work is top tier.

I thought the Joel Kim Booster Netflix special was fun

I turned off the Ricky Gervais one.   I may not disagree with Chappelleís shitty takes, but he at least knows to stick that shit at the end of the special.   Gervais was just a miserable prick from the jump

Shit, accidentally wrote disagree earlier.  In context I hope itís clear Iím not a Terf or a hatemonger, but def want to make that clear now

The new Stavros special is the first time I've actually laughed at some stand up in a while
[close]
Was gonna post this but had made the big claim stand up wasn't needed anymore so didn't lol. Also for me this was first time actually laughing at stand up for some while but I do think he's even funnier on podcasts etc

I've been binging his youtube videos ever since watching this.  Hilarious.

Anyone fuck with Shane Torres?  I might be able to see him in Detroit next month, just trying to work it out with, uh... work.

Ricky Gervais' stand up is painfully bad.

You do stand up too? I had a fairly decent run for like 8 years or so but lost the passion for it the last few years. I've lost the desire to perform but I still write pretty much every day. I saw one of your posts saying that when you started doing comedy you stopped watching it. It was the same thing for me.

What market are you in? How long have you done comedy?

Yeah, I do. Haven't in a while now, just started putting my time into some other stuff recently. I'll get around to doing it again, been having the itch again recently. I've always written stuff and kept little notes for bits and stuff, similar to you.

I'm not like a full time comic or anything, just stuff in and around my city. Get booked sometimes for a paid gig here and there, but not anywhere near being a working comic. Started it like...6ish years ago? It's pretty fun, I always suggest people to just try an open mic if they have any interest in it.

I dunno. I always thought it was funny that a man who gave a softball interview to Jimmy Savile had the gall to "take Hollywood to task" about epstein

About the only Gervais I can tolerate is the stuff with Karl Pilkington bc at least heís jolly during it and whatever you think about his treatment of Karl, he made him a millionaire

Will always love the office, extras, life's too short, Ricky Gervais show both radio and podcast all the Karl shows even Derek and afterlife had good moments (altho that last season of afterlife shows he's got nothing left in the tank. It was basically just a redo of stuff he's already done) but his standup was always weird. Obviously all standup is a rehearsed one person act but his always felt really act-y if that makes any sense. A bunch of its even fucking prop comedy which can fuck right off.

Never heard this set from Norm before. You can hear comics near where they were recording.  Sounds like Tom and Bert.
