Oh, you mean Ned Holness, the pretend Mexican? Did you know he is half German, half Honduran? His whole show is ripped from other people! Don't believe me? Google it - or check out these links:

Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment: Do Not Watch Mind of Mencia

blog.myspace.com/talkingmonkey

The second link is from Joe Rogan's myspace page, where he posted a commentary and a video documenting how he "outed" Carlos aka Ned.

I can't believe anyone buys the dukey this guy is selling.

Eddie Izzard is the king of stand up - and of women, Wanda Sykes is tops.

Bill Cosby hands down, clean fun humor that made you laugh the entire time. I remember as a kid, our neighbor had all the Cosby comedy albums on vinyl. On weekends the kids on the street would file into the basement and listen to every album repeatedly. I really wish i had those albums today.

Taylor Mason is a new favorite of mine. His puppet act is hilarious!
He is clean, too, so your kids can watch and you won't have to worry about his act!
Michael Jr. is pretty good, too. Jeff Allen, too!

For a great laugh, the video "Thou Shalt Laugh" contains seven artists that are pretty funny, including those mentioned above. It's great, clean entertainment.

Could I really be the only person here whose all-time favorite stand up comedian is Jerry Seinfeld?! I think he's the best hands down.

All time fav - Seinfeld. Saw him about 5 years back and he was still great. Then I would have to saw Ellen G, Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan. Also, I saw Bob Goldthwait about 4 years ago in a small club in TX and he was great.

Finally, someone else for Seinfeld. I've seen him about a dozen times everywhere from NYC to LA. Some of my favorite sketches are the racehorse one and especially the grocery store one.
