Mario Cantone
Kevin James
Sabrina something (I've only seen one show of hers but it is hilarious.  Wish I could remember her name.  She has very short hair and wore a Hawaiian shirt, which tells you something...)
Hugh Fink (writer on SNL, but his standup is funny)

Denis Leary
Wanda Sykes
Jay Mohr (for his Chris Walken impression alone)
Laura Kitelinger (I know I fucked up her last name....)
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
woody allen (side effects - 1980)

So agreed!!
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Man, he stretches his material waaaaaaayyyyy too thin.

He's got a few funny jokes, but he rides them way too long.

I can't imagine anyone finding Ellen Degeneres abrasive as a stand-up comedian... her stand-up is probably the most gentle out there.  :?:
You are right, I shouldn't have included Ellen under the abrasives list...should have said the Dice Man instead.

A few more to my list of one's I like:
Eddie Murphy
David Allen Grier
Jamie Foxx
MC Pee Pants

MacGuffin
