Lesser Known Comedians

Recommended Posts

My favourite 3 comedians...

Mitch Hedberg - Totally original and brilliant. He suffered from stage fright so his delivery is really nervous but it makes his material even funnier. He died in 2005, R.I.P.

Demetri Martin - Stupidly clever observational stuff.

Stewart Lee - The greatest stand up of all time, totally in a league of his own. I saw him in February on his latest tour. Utter genius.

Don't know how to embed videos, sorry.

What did everyone think of the Geordie guy who supported Bridges at the Concert hall a few weeks back?

He was good. Kinda slow start but really built up into belly laughs. His stuff on swearing was classic. Kevin Bridges himself was amazing too. Possibly my favorite live comedy show.

A lot of the comedians mentioned are great like Kevin Bridges. I often see Jackie Mason but he is lesser known because he's more U.S. based but is very good at holding his audience and works comfortably with all age groups. . Here he is at Oxford for some reason -

Guest The Great Paddy Buckley

Roy Chubby Brown; Filthy, funny, clever and articulate. He will not be appearing on TV anytime soon.

Bill Hicks. Legend

Chic Murray; Not really known down here in Ingerland. Just looking at him makes me laugh. Years ahead of his time as an anarchic alternative comedian. Clearly a huge influence to Billy Connolly as the Big Yin would readily accept.
