    I have always loved seeing live stand up and finally decided to et a couple of stand up CDs. I bought a bunch of them, but I just wanted to recommend to you guys a couple that are really a step above:

    Jesse Joyce - Joyce to the World. www.jessejoyce.com

    Greg Giraldo - Good Day to Cross a River

    David Cross - Shut Up You ******* Baby

    Anyone whose into stand-up will probably know Greg Giraldo and David Cross, but definitely check out Jesse Joyce. Even if he has crazy coke addict eyes, he is a really funny guy and also has done a comedy tour of Iraq for the troops there. There are some cool photos on his myspace www.myspace.com/jessejoyce of the Iraq trip. I heard about him on a podcast I listen to which he is an occasional guest on, but I was really impressed with his stand-up CD, particularly from a guy who isn't "well known".
  2. I'd recommend any spoken word album put out by Henry Rollins. While I haven't heard all of them, the ones I heard are hilarious.

    Jim Gaffigan - "Beyond the Pale" is a good one.

    I don't know how well their comedy would translate to CDs(their expressions are part of the comedy), but I think the following people are hilarious.

    Bonnie Mcfarlane
    Daniel Tosh
    Jeff Dunham
    Rodney Carrington
  7. Todd Barry - Medium Energy
    Emo Philips - E=MO^2
  8. Mitch Hedberg.

    Sorry, all these are pretty much LOSERS. I can't believe NOT ONE of these recommended the true classics:

    EVERYTHING by the incomparable Bill Cosby

    EVERYTHING by the inimitable Bob Newhart

    That's really all you need; the ones people have recommended here are mostly just potty-mouths who couldn't even hold a candle to Lenny Bruce, and Bruce was, well, just a potty-mouth.

    I might grudgingly recommend George Carlin, but only "grudgingly."
  16. Bill Hicks.

    I cut out Denis Leary and Sarah Silverman from your list, but other than that +1 to all of these. Oh, and I assume that's Zach Galifianakis.

    Also I love Mitch Hedberg too. Getting to hang out with him for a night after his show at the Punchline is one of my favorite memories. Emo Phillips is a trip.

    I'm also partial to Richard Pryor, Stephen Wright, Dave Chappelle, Eddie Izzard, and Redd Fox among many others. I'm a big stand-up comedy fan.

    But back to the topic of the thread, if I was to recommend one Bill Hicks CD I'd say "Rant in E Minor".
