NFT: New comedians you like?

Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 7/12/2019 9:59 am
I've been an Andrew Schulz fan for a couple of years now since I started checking out his podcast "Brilliant Idiots" with Charlamagne. But his stand-up has hit another level the last year or so and he seems to be blowing up.

I know a lot of people think today's young comedians are soft and won't touch certain subjects, but not this guy. He's not Bill Burr, Chappelle, or Louis CK; but this dude is a real good young comedian who's hitting his stride.

I'd definitely recommend you guys check him out on YouTube, obviously he isn't for everyone and can come off a little douchey at times but I'm definitely a fan. Anyone else have any suggestions for some other new comic you think is funny?
He's not

new, but my family LOVES Brian Regan.
Not sure about their stand-up strictly speaking  
tbonfig : 7/12/2019 10:06 am : link
but Theo Von and Chris D'Elia are two of my favs right now. Their podcasts are amazing. I saw Theo's standup and was underwhelmed given how good his podcast is and I'm actually going to see D'Elia's tonight. SOOOO pumped.
I dont know how new he can be considered  
j_rud : 7/12/2019 10:15 am : link
but Tom Segura is the funniest man on the planet. His most recent special on Netflix is non-stop hilarious.
I haven't seen much of his work  
Moondawg : 7/12/2019 10:31 am : link
but Bo Burnham seems exceptionally talented.

(I still merely hunt down old Norm and Patrice videos on YouTube for the most part).

Good call on Theo's podcast. He seems like some kind of redneck nobleman.

He's one of those guys that doesn't need crude humor or insults to be funny. He has some stuff on YouTube and occasionally is in the lineup on SiriusXM (Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy channel).

Saw him a couple months ago and he was hilarious
Jerry Seinfeld called out Mark Newcomb  
ChaChing : 7/12/2019 10:38 am : link
as his best new comic when asked at the Mets game. Opens for Schumer, so I'm not sure how 'new' that makes him but still, quite the endorsement. I haven't seen anything fwiw

Also I just saw a part of Neal Brennan: 3 Mics, as a huge fan of Half-Backed & Chappelle Show. Interesting format. I didn't love it but it was entertaining
i was going to say Neil Brennan.  
Britt in VA : 7/12/2019 10:41 am : link
I really like him.
Mark Norman is the guy Seinfeld called out on the Mets show

Nate Bargatze

Nate Bargatze is really good me thinks. Check out Netflix for Standups and his own special. He might make you try a certain order at Starbucks.
Also nothing new but the new

Aziz Ansari special on Netflix was excellent.

Latest best comedian...  
Dan in the Springs : 7/12/2019 2:18 pm : link
per my family is Ryan Hamilton. Check out his special "Happy Face" on Netflix. We live in Idaho, and that's where he's from, he's talking to a NYC audience and comparing/contrasting, so it's extra funny to us. Another benefit is that it's completely clean humor.

A couple of years ago it was Nate Bargatze - really good stuff from him. Before that Brian Regan.

tbon, it is a lot of self humility type humor. I don't listen to his podcasts, so I had nothing to base it off of. You can tell he is pretty new to the stand up routine, but I didn't mind it.

Looking at the rating on IMDB, the feedback was not very positive. 2.8 out of 10!

Yeah I wonder how much of that was the viral social media folks. I'll check it out, give him some clicks regardless.

Thanks for the heads up

Not a new guy by any means

but I always find Jim Gaffigan to be hilarious. His bits on Subway and Dominoís from the Mr. Universe special are awesome.

Oh yeah, Gaffigan is one of this generation's greatest comics imo. The quantity and quality of his material is top-notch, and the delivery is great.
Theo Vonn and Schaub are great  
halfback20 : 7/12/2019 4:31 pm : link
On TKATS. I dont get the Schaub hate. He isnt the best but he is funny. Hes good on TFATK too.

D'elia is great. Bryan Callen is also hilarious.

"Dad Chaniels" was excellent. One of the best specials I've seen in a long time.

Sam Morril, Joe Machi, Mark Normand (as mentioned), and Joe List are all EXCELLENT comics (if you like joke writers) that no one's really paying attention to.

Adrienne Iappalucci is out of this world if you like dark humor. The industry kind of passed her over because she's not what people want women comics to be. Same with Bonnie McFarlane.

Mike Vecchione put out an album last year that may be one o my favorites of all time (again, just a joke writer).

John Moses is a guy that the industry has sort of passed over as well, but is an outrageously good comic, 2 albums out.

Chris Distefano came out with a great special on Comedy Central.

Someone mentioned Tim Dillon. He's a lunatic and I love him.

Big Jay Oakerson is another vet that doesn't really get enough attention given how he may be the most naturally funny person alive. Him and Nick Mullen.

People mentioned Bargatze and Segura, who are definitely 2 of my favorites right, but I wouldn't call them "new." Honestly, I wouldn't call any of these comics "new," if you're hearing about they've been grinding for 15+ years. But Bargatze and Segura both have multiple specials out.

I'm sure I'll come back to this with more.
"he may be the most naturally funny person alive"  
Moondawg : 7/12/2019 5:19 pm : link
Old Timers David Spade and Norm Macdonald still have a claim to this. Almost every old SNL person said that Spade was the most naturally funny in conversation.

But Big Jay does keep the tradition of the tough crowd guys alive.
Michael McIntyre  
twostepgiants : 7/12/2019 5:54 pm : link
He is one of biggest drawing comedians in the world, he just hasnt really made it to US yet.

2 full crowd work albums is tough to argue with. I would say Patrice, but...

Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 7/12/2019 7:54 pm : link
Isnít what I shouldíve said. Just not the typical mainstream extremely successful guys most of us already know about.

Some good mentions here. Most recently saw Segura and he is a just great imo. Theo Vonn is hilarious on his podcast but better in that format than stand up imo. Same with Schaub who i like because he just seems like a good dude.

Delia is the funniest guy Iíve seen in person, just pure charisma.

I only know Normand from the hilarious local news appearance he had, definitely gotta check out his stand up.

Haven't seen his standup, but I watch a fair number of fantastic BBC "Panel Shows" - comedians & a few celebs who hang out with some quiz like premise. McIntyre I've seen on "The Big Fat Quiz" as well as "QI / Quite Interesting." Really awesome stuff

MM is great there. Tho I've found many are great hangin out and riffing, but iffy stand-up. Russell Brand is hilarious on those tho I never laughed at him b4. Same with Jack Whitehall. Russell Howard is another, but I haven't seen his stand-up yet (there's some on NF)

One I like is Jimmy Carr (also some NF stuff). Tends to host those shows and is great, but the stand-up I've seen is classic Brit sarcasm / dry humor modernized if you will (NOT Benny Hill or really most old cheesy shit). Also he has the funniest laugh they often rip on - IMO a white, Brit Eddie Murphy style laugh

This. I like crude, dark and roast comedy. BamaBlue and I are not sitting at a comedy show and laughing together.

Plus most people named have 4-5 albums out already, not really new. Hedberg only has three, and one was after he died. Seguras specials on Netflix were good, but not new.

Definitely will check out Normand, several mentioned.

James Adomian's Underculture podcast  
GiantSteps : 7/13/2019 7:34 pm : link
is freaking great. He's a master impressionist, and has great guests with him on every episode.

If you check it out, my current faves are Slavoj Zizek/Andre the Giant and Jesse Ventura/Shaq.
Sebastian Maniscalco  
Archer : 7/14/2019 11:51 am : link
I didnít see anyone mention Sebastian Maniscalco
He has some routines that will keep you laughing days later
His humor is based upon his life experiences and he hits all the sore spots in every family relationship
He Is one of the best comedians to see live, he contorts himself and makes gestures that have to be seen

I genuinely found him to be the least funny stand up I've ever seen. It was all going for cheap stereotypes and laughs that have been done before. Clearly I'm in the minority, as he sells out arenas. But I can't figure out what people see in him. Maybe it's the physical element, like you mention.

You ever hear his Ventura on stern? Fantasticly absurd interview.
