The few that shine to me is Stephen Lynch #2 (his most recent CCP, mainly on his Craig Machine tour, I guess), Nick Swardson (always makes me laugh, especially when he talks about his 6 year old pic behind him), and Patton Oswalt (just an odd ball of weirdness, but funny!).
Like I said, the fact that all of these are uncensored add to the fun, but the only drawback is that the material is somewhat dated. But I think the most recent out of all of these performances is Stephen Lynch's.
Without fail one of the best television stations of all time, Comedy Central has changed the way we look at the world around us, all through the lens of humor. The network is a veritable hotbed of hilarity, bringing some of the best programming out there to our living rooms every day. With a lineup that includes South Park, The Daily Show with John Stewart (one of the hottest men on TV I might add), Reno 911!, and Sarah Silverman, it's surprising that I ever watch anything else on television (in fact I don't), let alone leave the house.
And yet for all their amazing scripted programming, sometimes it's the simplest little shows that bring the most pleasure. Of course, I'm talking about stand-up.
Comedy Central is known for their star stand-up comics, and the Best of Comedy Central Presents II brings that home with aplomb. The nearly 3-hour disc features Dave Attell, Mike Birbiglia, Frank Caliendo (love him on Mad TV!), Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Stephen Lynch, and Nick Swardson taking on topics as diverse as grandmothers, teddy bears, concert etiquette, time-travel, and of course the battle of the sexes (and races, genders, sexual orientations, and various people with "special needs"...). At times it's raunchy, raw, rude, and all around wrong.
And that's exactly why we love it.Read more ›
I'll give a quick run-down by comic:
Dave Attell is frankly far too old to be telling this line of dirty jokes. He comes across as a creepy, pathetic old man who's long outlived the youthful exuberance he tries to portray. He's funny - don't get me wrong - but often times you find yourself laughing at HIM, not his jokes...
Mike Birbiglia is the opposite in every way. Mike has a real soft spoken approach to comedy. He's very clean - could pass for religious comedy - and is probably the most enjoyable comic on the disc. Don't get me wrong - I'm not offended by lewd humor or language - I just think it takes skill to do it properly. Birbiglia avoids it altogether. In many ways he comes across as somewhat sterile, especially when compared to the other comics on this disc, but he's still funny in his own right, and that's okay with me.
Daniel Tosh is one of those guys who I imagine most people are pretty polar over - they love him or hate him (or in the words of the late Mitch Hedburg, "think he's O.K...") I enjoy him, though you really have to approach him with an open mind. He can range anywhere from downright insulting to surprisingly self-loathing, and you never know how a joke will end-up. He's a little raw, but in general he's pretty funny - and often hard to argue with!
Frank Caliendo is pretty well known and he's pretty funny here, except that a handful of his references and impersonations come from movies or other content which I'm unfamiliar with.Read more ›
