    Bill Hicks is "worth mentioning"? He's a God, you should have to bow just to say his name!

    prodj, dave chapelle? :lick: does he even do actual standup? the Dave Chapelle show kinda sucks to begin with.

    Back on topic: yeah, The Blue Collar Comedy Tour is awesome. has Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy, Ron White, and Bill Engvall (think that's how is name is spelled.... or somewhat like that). Dennis Leary is great, as well as Robin Williams. Too bad ya can't find standup from most of the people you see on Comedy Central, like Dana Carvey and stuff.

    edit: yeah, Luna, Dane Cook is cool too. love his Speak 'n Spell gig
