I am so glad none of you has said 'Ross Noble' as of yet. Hate the guy.

However, Peter Kay and Omad Djlali are quite the comedians.

I saw a guy by the name of Robert Hawkins Friday night. Highly recommend seeing him if you can. Very, very funny. I think he does some writing for Conan.

The opening guy was from West Virginia. He reminded me of Robin Williams, on the fourth day of a crystal-meth/LSD/PCP bender, trying to have sex with a microphone stand. Oh yeah, and he apparently had some sort of gnome living in the collar of his shirt that he would get the next joke from. Seriously. There is a mental outpatient program looking through their files trying to see which trip to the mall they may have lost him on.

I love standup. It's brilliant, and it's so much more enjoyable than a sitcom or any other form of comedy. My favourites are:

Bill Bailey
Jimmy Carr
Ricky Gervais
Chris Rock

I like shows with new comics too, like Take the Mike, because some of them are really good, and I love watching things like The Comedy Store. Live is where it's at, but TV standup is still great.

I'm afraid to go to live comedy shows. When I see a stand-up comedian on TV and no one laughs at his jokes, I get really uncomfortable and I have to change the channel. If it were live, I wouldn't be able to do that...so I'd probably have to resort to running out of the place screaming. And that's just embarassing for everyone.

Mitch Hedburg is by far my favorite.

Stephen Lynch is also very funny.

That's why you sit in the back. That way you slip out the door and can run screaming through the parking lot. Much less embarrassing.

Don't know why I forgot him but Tim Allen is great too.

PS: I also forgot Denis Leary, he's brilliant!
