I think you nailed it. There are a few comedians that I really like but couldn't move foreword with their material. There are female comedians and then there are female comedians.



Oofdah.  I listened to the first 10 minutes of that link.  That'll be a tough chew at first lol.  I'm gonna have to immerse myself and see if she grows on me.  She's got a lot of hour long sets on youtube I see and that's promising.

I have a standard I use in music with new bands I've worked with.  I used to call it the Hamburg Ordeals.  (And I know you know exactly what I'm talking about.)

But then everyone I was talking to thought I was saying Hamburger Deals so now I just call it "take every booking we can get no matter how poor the pay to get tight."

Hannah Gadsby needs to do 7 sets a day, 7 days a week for a few months.  Tighten up her act.  Learn to broaden her appeal to diverse and changing audiences, and how to improv and polish her material.  It would do her wonders.  She definitely has talent.  She just hasn't put in the work to polish it yet.  And some time on the road would broaden her experiences for more material.  And since Nanette is basically about her quitting comedy out of frustration because she's not getting rewarded enough ... I guess she never will.

The fact that all these entertainment reporters think this is a lasting and important statement on the comedic artform is pathetic and kind of depressing.

She basically puts on a one wo/man show.  Not really that unique or revolutionary.  And I've seen funnier TED talks.

Who are your favorite comedians?

Mine are Anthony Jeselnik, Angelah Johnson, Lisa Lampanelli (when she was fat), Ryan Stout and the guy who insults people at roasts (forgot his name).

Anthony Jeselnik is definitely brilliant.

Joe Rogan.  Bill Burr.  Steven Wright.  Norm MacDonald.  Dave Chappelle.  Mitch Hedburg. 

Growing up I used to memorize Carlin and Richard Pryor's acts and entertain some of my classmates in class (and annoy most.)  Carlin got pretty unfunny in his later years but his body of work is pretty excellent.

This act by Bob Nelson is one I learned word for word and was constantly badgered into performing for family members at get togethers.  Never saw anything else by him but this was hilarious at the time.

Oh for crying out loud.  How could I not remember the rest of Bob Nelson's characters.  I did em all.  That video clip didn't include Quasi M. Modo ... Notre Dame so I had to go looking and wow ... trips down memory lane.

Jiffy Jeff's Gym.  My mom especially loved that one when I did it since my name is Jeff.

Eppy Epperstein.

lol.  I'm going to be wandering through youtube all night.

Oh, yeah, Bob Nelson! I love him!

I'm sure you saw this routine. It's not really comedy, but it's so good:



And this is my favorite Bob Nelson bit:



Bob Nelson seems to have faded from public view, but in reality he is still doing comedy. He is a Christian who performs at Christian seminars and family-friendly events.

I used to love the shit out of Eddie Izzard.  But it started to get old.

Best line and delivery in comedy : "I'm from Europe.  Where the history comes from."  lol.  I still smile thinking about him mocking the historical preservation societies here in the states.  FIFTY...YEARS ...OLD.

I'll have to look into some of the others.  Never heard some any of those names before Jasmine mentioned Angelah Johnson.

I think you would especially love Steve Hughs. A former black metal drummer, libertarian from Australia. What's not to love? Smart political comedy.

At first read I thought "He's not black anymore?"  I'm an idiot.

Actually, he's not metal anymore... he used to be a robot.
