"The Kurt Cobain of Comedy", not even going to dignify that one.

edit: if we're going to compare a comedien to a dead musician (now this will be unpopular!!!) lets at least make it a good one like Chopin, or Eric Dolphy not a 4 chord pop star.

Bill Hicks to me is like the sort of comedian who's liked by straight while males into things like High Fidelity (the movie), Pulp Fiction (the movie), Bruce Lee (the actor), or Mohammed Ali ( the boxer). He's the lads magazines' comedian of choice. I prefer Lenny Bruce (kind of).


Shameless is not really comedy but it has it all: drama, violence, humour, disfunctional families, alcoholism.

Big call,

I'm not gonna pay it though, maybe that is the case in America, but he is barely known in Australia.

I find Lenny Bruce's skit type stuff incredibly boring I have to say. I would rather listen to derek and clive than lenny bruce. even though i pt bruce on the list.

Hans Teeuwen is fucking priceless!!
Richard Pryor is funny as hell too, and Chris Rock makes me laugh.
Good call on Rik Mayal Toilets & bowels.

Youre startlingly incorrect about Bill Hicks there, i cant even see where youre coming from.

I do love Shameless, last series was a bit iffy but this one seems to be back to its surreal best.
I also second Steve Coogan which a couple of people have said, i remember having a Paul and Pauline Calf video when i was about 12 for some reason.

Standups

Bill Hicks - The archetype of beauty and ugliness fused
Sean Lock - "The middle-class bloke on the building site" as he calls himself
Chris Rock - I dont know what its like being a black american, but hes way better than Obama.
Jerry Sadowitz - A Scottish Charles Manson with better card tricks than David Blaine and venom coming from both nostrils.

Writing


Stewart Lee - Who wrote Jerry Springer the opera, but mostly for Lee and Herring on British TV in the 1990s on which he was the principle.

Jerry Springer The Opera was co-written with Richard Thomas, who, while being a musician, happens to have contributed greatly to how funny that show was.
He also played in a glitchcore thing called Hairy Butter that were truly awful and I'm sure he is still ashamed of that. When I first heard of Lee's involvement in ''Jerry Springer The Opera ''I thought that it was an unnecessary target to choose, until I watched it and enjoyed it a lot. I still have a ''crack whore'' badge.

I was generalising from the perception of his public that I have, not saying that Bill Hicks isn't, sometimes, quite funny.

I've watched it so many times because it was here at work and never failed to enjoy it. It's not so much what they sing, but how they sing it and at which speed that gives it that special something. The actors in it were all a bunch of pricks, mind.

lest we forget, this is a rock music board.... there's no need to be snooty

anyway, there are loads of parallels between hicks and cobain, they are both "alternative", they both took pleasure in riling red necks, they're both dead, they're both more popular than they would be if they were still alive... etc
