    yea man, that's why I said undisputed for most people. Some might disagree. Very few though. Check out Gabriel Iglesias and Danny Bhoy on youtube

    Judging by his list he would be well aware of those comedians, he seems quite hard core in his knowlege of he industry. I don't think "most people" would have any common ground, the field is too varied. The acts you named are all excellent, but I probably wouldn't have any of them in my top twenty and believe me I appreciate their calibre, I saw Danny Bhoy live last year he was fantastic.

    Nope I actually don't watch many people other than them haha. Could be many more. "Most people" refers to the people at my school. I saw danny bhoy too, live. He is great

    Well the "peoples choice" prizes at the end of Melb Com for the last decade has seen Wil Anderson win about half of em so...

    Oh and I meant JHF showed that he knows his shit, Carlin, Pryor, Seinfield are like the fathers of the American stand up scene. The only sort of Australian equivalent to them would be Barry Humphries.

    Nice, was just wiping the window in the bathroom and the cover for the fan came off and the fan blades smashed into a million pieces, narrowly missing my eyes and hitting my face. Are there any other hazards we should be aware of?

    Exactly, most people don't have any commom ground in comedy - especially gen Y who don't know how talented guys like Martin, Pryor, Carlin, Murry etc. are. Anyhow, the newer comedians of today are great such as Bhoy, Barron etc. but it is hard to compare them to the legends. Also, don't know if any of you guys know Pablo Francisco, but I recommend checking him out he is amazing.

    Honestly I do prefer the newer guys, I think as in many arts as time has gone on new, more professional and disciplined artists have developed the art, taken it to new levels etc and I, simply put, enjoy watching them more. But I appreciate "the legends" and how they blazed a trail for others to follow, particularly Carlin and before him, Milton Berle. I mentioned Michael Workman before, he is a Sydney comedian who has tapped into a strange delicate melancholy sort of style, it still funny but there are really heartbreaking, sobering moments as well. I've never seen anyone do what Michael does before and its amazing but I'm sure in twenty years time it'll be fairly common trend and younger, smarter comedians will have polished up his genre and left him for dead.

    Saw Simon Amstell last Monday, certainly a niche comedian but utterly delightful, best gig I've ever been to and I've seen some big ones.
