Just curious which Comedians are popular here. I make no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of Eddie Izzard (yes that's MY site) and was just wondering who else people like and why!!

Woody Allen.
He's a classic - his timing is impeccable. I enjoy his movies.
Groucho Marx.
This guy is hilarious. I have doubled up and laughed uncontrollably - several times, watching his movies.
Michael Richards (as Cosmo Kramer).
In Seinfeld. He's at top form here. Just looking at him brings a smile to my face.
Victor Borge.
He was a gifted pianist with a flair for antics. PBS had a program on him recently. A really funny fellow - if you though classical music was boring - you should watch this guy's videos.

Bob Nelson was originally from Long Island. I used to see him playing the local comedy clubs. He was the funniest guy in the clubs from the day he started.

So just curious, I know Eddie Izzard is gaining a kind of cult status over there in the US since his double Emmy Award Winning show "dress to kill" was aired on HBO!!
So have any of you heard of him? Seen the show?
What do you think??

Angela made me buy one of his videos. I made the mistake of letting my children watch it .
Now I am going to spend the REST OF MY LIFE listening to comments about "wicked giraffes" and "the BEES, the bees", etc .
Of course I had to tell the kids to bleep out some of the words . . . . but he IS very funny!

Bill Hicks
Definitely a comedian whose material you dont want to show in front of the kids! Rest in Peace, Bill.
Ricky Gervais
Simply because "The Office" is the funniest sitcom Ive watched this year.

Eddie Izzard!
I've been waiting so long for his "Grolious" DVD to come out. I saw it once at my friend's home when I was in the states and loved it.
But practically nobody knows him here in Japan. Well, some people do but they think he is an actor.

"Cake or Death" bit is my favorite!

There's no sign of "Glorious" being released on DVD yet. It is available on VHS though from www.izzardmerchandise.com However "Dress to kill" is available on region 1 DVD from Amazon.com and his newest show "Circle" is available on Region 2 DVD from amazon.co.uk
Hop on over to my site (link in first post) for more info ... all fans very welcome!!

Eddie Izzard is a very funny man, very, very clever too I suspect. Jerry Seinfeld, funny and he doesn't swear in his act. Not that I mind swearing, I just like the idea of someone who can be funny without it. Steve Coogan as Allan Partridge.

http://www.alan-partridge.co.uk/scripts/scripts.htm
Phil Jupitus, and Robin Williams. Robin Williams once did a very funny gig in the UK where he did an excellent job of making fun of all things British. It takes some nerve and ability to do that in a foreign country . One quote was
"Cricket, its like baseball on valium"

Hey Thomas,
Did you see the movie "Brain Donors"
Laslow: "Spell cat"
Bob: "K-a-t"
Laslow: "You need to go back to school"
Bob: "I hated teaching"
I wish they had this movie on DVD, and that they would make a sequel to it.

Angela,
Eddie should employ you as his manager for international business.
At least I am considering to buy a dvd.
Since 2 years my favourite comedian is kaya yanar. If anybody goes to germany for whatever reason you might consider to buy the "Deutsch Set" offered on the web site for easier integration.

The people who make me laugh are those who care to make me laugh. I will laugh if anybody just wanna make me laugh.
I would wanna spread words about Izzard but most my friends are chinese language and those who know english don't understand wild jokes.
