Adam Corrolla physically repulses me. Everything he says leaves me stonefaced. I think The Man Show was/is the peak of moronic despicableness.

But on to comedians I do like:

Woody Allen
Wanda Sykes Hall
Chris Rock
Margaret Cho
Jerry Seinfeld
Ellen Degeneres
Janeane Garofalo

Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

I think Stephen Colbert and Amy Sedaris are fucking hysterical. I can barely look at either of them without laughing, especially on Strangers with Candy.

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Yeah, thats why I said "on loveline". I cant stand the man show or kimmel or crankyankers. He needs Dr. Drew there to civilize him a bit and then he is very witty and funny. Plus on radio, you dont have to look at him

I'm afraid you're right about the fad for prehistoric men... (actually, I kind of find "metrosexual"-type men to be pretty annoying, too- both types are so fabricated).

About Corolla being considered sexy, though... **shudder** That could only happen in the land of God Dam I'm Da Man's desperate projection. :-)

Sorry to get off topic here. Eulogy came from the inspiration that Maynard drew from Bill Hicks' personal beliefs and performances. If anyone thinks it has nothing to do with Bill Hicks, you are wrong and do not know of Maynard's admiration for him. Jesus Christ was my first impression until a true Tool-ie told me about Maynard's fascination with Bill Hicks......interperate what you want from it but it's not the obvious. If you give a damn, check out this forum post:

http://disc.server.com/discussion.cgi?disc=178164;article=10128;title=TOOL;date_query=1063306243

Maynard's lyrics are not always what they seem....check out Prison Sex and tell me what you think. Do those lyrics make him gay? It's all about something else....not exactly verbatim. Yes, part of Eulogy is directed at someone else, but it's mainly about Hicks, IMO.

My 2 cents off topic on Eulogy by Tool.

I'll add Bill Cosby to my list of favs

Abrasives:
Rosie O'Donnell
Sandra Bernhard
Ellen Degenres
Dennis Leary
MC Pee Pants

I think Sandra Bernhard is genius exactly 2/3 of the time. I don't know that you'd call what she does "standup comedy," though. I think of it more as performance art.

I can't imagine anyone finding Ellen Degeneres abrasive as a stand-up comedian... her stand-up is probably the most gentle out there.  :?:

George Carlin
Mitch Hedburg
Pablo Francisco (I'm so suprised no one put him up yet)
Nick Swardson
Dave Attell
Maria Bamford
Jerry Seinfeld

I think that's a pretty good list...

I have been a fan of Tool and a fan of Bill Hicks for many years, my friend.

What's funny is that the article you linked is saying exactly what I just said "Eulogy is NOT about Bill Hicks".  

You could say that it's inspired by Bill Hicks in some ways, but not really directly... not as directly as "Aenema" ("Arizona Bay" is not only a Hicks routine, but the title of one of his stand up compilations) or "Third Eye" which even samples Hicks... but more in the fact that the attitudes are very similar to Hicks'.
