Anyone have some favorite comedians with videos on YouTube?

Some of my favorites are:

Louis CK - "everything's amazing and no one's happy" (warning: his other video's can be crude!)
Jake Johannsen
Mitch Hedberg

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Jimmy Carr, Eddy Izzard and Billy Connolly rank among my favorites.

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

Seconded on Eddie Izzard.

I also think Stewart Lee is a genius (but a bit of an acquired taste).

Truth be told, most comedians are. Of the names I mentioned, especially Eddie (misspelled his first name last time) and Jimmy are acquired tastes. They're really not that funny when you hear them for the first time. They kinda grow on you. I went to Stripped, an Izzard show, one that he held in Amsterdam, just a year and what... ago? Really, if I didn't know him, I would have thought he was a raving madman. But that's what makes him so enjoyable, if you know what his type of humour is about.

Stephen Wright, Mitch Hedberg, and Bob Marley (who is often billed as "Comedian Bob Marley", to make it clear) are some of my faves.

These new ones are OK, but I prefer the big name established comedians. IMO, a comedian really cannot reasonably to have made the big time unless he's appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show.
