Dave Chappelle talking about his son making a macaroni necklace for him. He said something along the lines of "now you may not understand why this is so special, but.....you came from my balls"

I never heard of Lewis Black's "hilarious and this guy is smart" routine, or Sinbad's "omg, he is soooooo funny" routine. Odd names for a routine in fact.

Just about anything by John Pinette - but specifically, his Chinese Buffet routine. Hilarious!

YouTube - Woody Allen - The Moose

That's one of my all time favorites. I love Woody Allen and I wish they had more of his early stand-up on youtube.

One of my favorite Lewis Black routines is on youtube, but because of the language, I won't give a link. Just look up "Lewis Black-Milk & Water".

Any time Joe Rogan gets going he is hilarious but I especially like his "p-ssy is still better" routine.

Dave Chapelle's "Chivalry is dead and women killed it" bit is classic.

Louis C.K. talking about his daughter playing with her genitalia was hysterical also.

Chris Rock's "That Ain't Right" speech in Head of State (that whole movie is funny), eventhough is not part of his stand up was great.

David Allan Grier's "Death is Racist" speech (and most of his speeches) at the head of Chocolate News was great.

Eddie Murphy's "Goonie Goo Goo" bit has had me laughing since I was 12.

lol - that's classic Dana Carvey - his "musical humour" is always great IMO esp if you're familiar w/what he's talking about, ie funny and true. Musicians can be so pretentious and just plain idiotic in how they act, esp on stage. Also his "framing OJ" thing was great.

Another great (but short) Bill Cosby one was his Lone Ranger/Tonto thing.
