    This is one of the best and ingenius standup comedy routines I've ever seen. It is hilarious because he is heckling the audience and they don't even realize it. Also, the fact it takes massive guts to bomb this badly, even if on purpose to a unfriendly audience. Where is he? North dakota, alabama, mississipi etc??

    This never gets old. His name is Lance Krall who is half vietnamese. He doesnt really look, talk or dress this way. The look on their faces is priceless. Lmao.

    Bert Kreischer. Not to mention a host of others, like Louis CK, Bill Burr...

    Is there a character limit to posts? How long could the list be?

    Great concept. Reminds me of Andy Kaufman a bit.

    But my favorite comedian today is Maria Bamford.

    As I write this, the city of Melbourne is hosting its annual International Comedy Festival.

    There are so many great stand up comedians out there. Picking a "best" one is impossible. Besides, tastes in comedy vary a lot.

    The bit in the OP reminds me of the bit Norm McDonald did on a roast for Bob Saget. He just read corny jokes straight out of a "jokes book" his dad gave him years ago. Everyone though he was serious and had lost his mind.

    I like Chris Rock and many other comedians but I think my favorite is the late Patrice O'Neil. In college I thought a comedian by the name of Franklin Ajai was funny but I think that might have been because of the pot we were smoking at the time.

    I saw George Carlin on a TV show years ago. He came out and looked at the audience and they immediately started to laugh. He opened his mouth as if to say something and they laughed. He stopped without saying anything and they laughed. This went on for several minutes. He never said a word and the audience was rolling in the aisles.
