When I was growing up, I was a huge stand up comedy nut. My dad got me into it when I was way too young to be listening to the stuff, I remember watching specials with my parents a lot. Carlin, Pryor, Murphy, The Comic Relief stuff, whatever was available back then we consumed, Carlin was our favourite though. I really loved all his voices and just his stage presence. I used to be amazing at naming comedians by voice alone, we have a local AM station where I am that just plays stand up bits, they would say the name of the previous comedian after the bit, so I loved trying to name them as fast as possible based on the voice. My best was Marc Maron, I got it in like half a second by just hearing an "Aghgh!" lol.
Anyway, I don't listen to or watch the stuff at all anymore. I'm sure there are some good working comedians somewhere, but what I see from the mainstream makes me cringe. I like the Legion of Skanks guys, but even with them I find a lot of their actual written stand up material to be garbage - they are way more entertaining just riffing with each other.
People have recommended me Cumtown and various things by Sam Hyde, and I can't stand either one of them. Comedy largely feels dead to me.
As far as more modern comedians go, I've really taken a shine to these dudes. They seem to be cut from the same cloth, grew up as geeky guys who turned their self-loathing into self-aware and crass humor punctuated by some very amusing observations.
hes not for everyone i suppose. pretty clean and maybe even a bit corny, but i love it. he's more of a slow burn story teller type of comedy, but when his jokes pay off of my fuckin god is it funny. this is a good example because its jsut an 8 minute set, so its like a really shortened version of what he does in a 1-2 hour long show and specials on Netflix
