wanted to start a thread for stand up comedies that people can recommend or advise people to stay away. 

My first recommendation is to stay far away from Kevin James stand up on Netflix. my god it’s horrible. Don’t watch.

    The only stand up comic I like is John Mulaney. So he’s my recommendation.

    Jim Jefferies: Bare
    John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous Radio City
    Marc Maron: Too Real
    Ali Wong: Baby Cobra
    I've liked all the Chappelle specials on there too

    I think all these are on Netflix if I am not mistaken

    Larry Dean. Seriously funny.

    It's probably more problematic these days than I'd like to admit, but in my teens I used to watch the I Coulda Been Your Cellmate special by Mo'Nique ALL the time. It was a show she did for the inmates at a women's prison, and I bloody loved it lol.

    Ricky Gervais. There is no one better to me.

    Honorable mentions, John Mullaney, Bo Burnham, and George Carlin.
  • His other stand up specials are OK but Eddie Izzard's Dress to Kill is one of the best stand up specials I've ever seen.

    Early Jim Jeffries and Bill Burr are excellent. As well as any of Chapelle. 

    Just warning to gun supporters though. Probably don’t watch Jim Jeffries then 
  • Daniel Sloss's two Netflix comedy specials are great. The first one especially. just watch it without reading anything about it 
  • Tom Seguras Netflix specials are awesome

    For my money, I like me some good ol' early 90s, mullet-era, pleated pants-era Brian Regan.  That guy kills me.  

  • I really love Joe Rogan's two Netflix specials "triggered" and "Strange times". Also as everyone else has said  "Chappelle ". I also really enjoyed Chris Rock's Netflix special.
  • I'd recommend Chris Porter - "Ugly and Angry". Used to be on Netflix, but I think it's been taken down. You can stream it all on Spotify though!
