I'm so jealous of people who feel comfortable enough to be able to do stand up


Dave Attell is one of the greats, I watched a ton of Insomniac episodes when I was like 12

The only thing I can really tell people who are interested in trying it and never have is that you will be uncomfortable. You just have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I know that seems contradictory, but it makes sense if you want it to.

Also anyone who tells you for your first time "Oh man, just get drunk and go up there and just fuckin' riff" is an idiot and will never ever do any sort of comedy. The amount of times that has been attempted compared to the number of times its gone well is a wide margin. Just try to write a few jokes, even if it's 2 minutes of material and just go try it. You might bomb, you might kill, but most likely it'll be somewhere in the middle. If it's an open mic the odds are you won't be the worst one there anyways.

I like Stewart Lee. I guess layered, nuanced, and deadpan describe him best?

This is a random clip but it's representative of his other stuff.

Once I started doing stand up I pretty much stopped watching it. The Nate Bargatze special from a couple of years ago was great though, and if you like weirdo "alt comedy" the Maria Bamford special she shot at her house was funny. Most alt comedy is pretty fucking bad, but Bamford is usually great.

What is the name of the Nate Bargatze special?

Mark normand, Kyle kinane, as mentioned... mark normand had a great special last year (someone posted above), both have great podcasts. Joe list (marks heterosexual life mate) also has a great special posted last year. Sam morril, in my opinion, had the best special of 2020. https://youtu.be/4Xo3Fq7GGWk .... he also filmed one during the pandemic on rooftops in New York... which is also great... https://youtu.be/M0qDTYmaT-Y I hope those links work.... I will say, Shane gillis ( the cancelled snl guy) is probably my favorite comedian currently. I love his podcast, saw him live not too long ago and he crushed. Sorry for the long post...

Edit: also, for those who like basketball, Sam morril and stavros halkias (cumtown fame) have a great podcast. Pod don’t lie


I agree Sam Morril has great material!

Part of my intent for making the thread was to create a place where people could post whole sets.

Jimmy Carr you can tell puts in a lot of work to polish his material.

Usually not the biggest Theo Von fan but with Mark Normand this was enjoyable as hell. A lot of reflecting on embarrassing stuff from their pasts

I tried standup towards the end of college. My routine was kinda funny but couldn’t come up with new material so I gave up, but this was one of my bits:

“You know what’s the craziest movie I’ve seen? Office space...”

(Someone usually hoots at this point)

“You think fucking Inception was some trippy shit? (I sometimes said the Matrix instead) Nah nigga, Office...SPACE!!"
(Usually a small laugh)

(I would look for another black guy in the crowd)

“Fellow black man, what is your name?”
 (If the dude has a regular name I would say “Otis?” he would of course correct me then I say “Oh you said Darius, my bad.” Usually the most guaranteed laugh I would get.)

“So Darius...have you seen office space? (Look around at the crowd) I have to ask, because our black movie lexicon is a little different...I mention Animal House around my niggas and they think I’m trying to buy some weed. (Big laugh) I was quoting Caddy Shack and my momma thought I was having a stroke (black people found this joke funnier).

“Anyways Darius let me tell you about Office Space. Some dude and his two friends skim hundreds of thousands of dollars from their employer, something fucked up so he was going to fess up but didn’t have to because the building burned down. Some printer gets fucked up, an Arab man breakdances, an Applebee’s subplot, it’s an amazing movie...but do you want to know WHY he fucked around and stole the money?”

(Black guy says why)

“Get this..........because he was Booooooooooooooored!!!!!”

(Big laugh)

“Why the fuck couldn’t this guy just get another job, his life empty so he gotta fuck shit up huh? What kinda bullshit is that!”

“Stick it to the man? He read the job description, he knew he was going to have work weekends sometimes, fuck outta here!”

“And this movie came out in ‘99, didn’t white people get rich off of domain names back then? Mutherfucker would  buy ceilingfan.com and get a cool 2 mil from G.E because fuck it, why not.!”

“But all them post OJ and pre 9/11 movies were about weird responses to nihilism though “we conquered capitalism now what!?...Tom Cruise in an orgy cult?! fuck it. Brad Pitt plays the personification of your violent subconscious?...fuck it.

Alright I’m out, next time I’ll talk about movies that make sense damn sense, like Belly! Peace Y’all. (Not a good joke to end on, because White people didn’t know wtf belly was)

Stewart Lee has a superb new interviews with Adam Buxton on his podcast.

Yea, the "just get up there and riff" is a pretty bad idea. I've seen people crash and burn using that idea, I've actually died on stage trying newer stuff.

I usually repeat the entire 5 minutes in my head for about 2 weeks until it's literally burned into my memory word for word.

Subsequently I can get on a stage and fire of maybe 10 to 15 minutes of material I pretty much know will land.
That's all you need, you can reuse the same part for ages, no one knows.

Bombing is not that big of a deal as a skater, you’re used to falling in front of strangers.

Thread has me itching to try it again post COVID, ngl.
