    I didn't find it that funny either but just thought it was a good story on humility.

    As for Rogan and crew I agree they are not very funny.

    I watched half of it. I don't think it was awful, but just a lot of jokes he's used before if you've seen his act.

    Speaking or Rogan, Adam Eget was on JRE and said Norm's podcast is coming back in the fall.

    Glad it's not Norm's Netflix show that's coming back, his podcast was much better.

    Daaaam this Seinfeld special is really good if you're above 50 and haven't watched any standup in the past decade.

    Also I watched this, had James Acaster in it



    Then ended up watching a bit of the girl's standup

    The Seinfeld special was good in a "My parents would like this" sort of way. Nonetheless it was cool to see Jerry up there doing standup.

    been through this entire thread and I think a few of you need to research George Carlin

    several posts of several vidoes are just a twist on crap Carlin did 50 years ago

    I sat thru that Bryan Callen post and I want my 9 minutes back. Did he go to the Dane Cook school of comedy?

    It was the same with Dave Chappelle a few years ago. I went to see him at just for laughs in Montreal around 5 years ago, then a year or so later he released his 2 Netflix specials and they were both mainly comprised of his material from Montreal. Some of his references were pretty outdated too. His 3rd special was totally new stuff though. He even said in an interview that the bits he used were old for his first 2 netflix specials.

    I'm probably more familiar with his act and found the story funny.

    On his podcast he always plays the heal and makes it really funny the way he responds.

    He is the John Stockton of comedy. His podcast 10 Minute Podcast with Will Sasso and Chris Delia was comedic gold due to him setting up bits of adding to a bit to keep it going. Also, the hate for Dane Cook is based on nothing but hate. If he had the respect of Patrice O'Neal, that is more than enough for me.

    Sorry if these have been posted, but three of my favourite comedians have released their specials to YouTube within the last year.

    Mark Normand, one of Seinfeld's favourite comedians:

    A network deal is no longer the beacon of success for comedians; Netflix is now that mountain comedians feel they need before they can think of themselves as successful; however, Netflix has completely oversaturated the market.

    Comedians are now catching on the route to a successful career might be from hosting podcasts.

    I've stepped away from listening to much stand-up comedy recently, but I really like Chad Daniels a lot. Seems like he doesn't get the credit he really deserves for his delivery and content. Doesn't seem that many people are aware of him.




    Edit: I'm not sure if it's because I was introduced to him mainly through Pandora and Spotify, but I feel like his voice doesn't really match his body.

    That's generally the way stand-up works. A comedian will write material, work on it while touring, then record a special. Once they record it for mass consumption, they can't perform that material live anymore since everyone's heard it and they have to come up with new stuff. I've heard some comedians are leery of recording specials because it means they have to stop using good jokes on the road.

    Actually comedians work on their material in the comedy clubs. When they figured it out then they go on tour. No one goes to Just For Laughs to work on material. No one pays 60$ to sit in an arena and watch a comedian work on his jokes. Specials are always filmed at the end of their tours.

    Chappelle's Netflix specials came out long after he did that tour, like 3-4 years. It was labelled his come back tour at the time.

    It's every comics dream to get a special so I doubt any of them are leery about using jokes. Specials are what your are remembered for. used to be comedy albums.

    Anybody remember they tried to bring Chappelle down after his last Netflix special that joked about transgender people?

    The RT score discrepancy is hilarious.
