Comedians

Jacob and I love seeing comedians. There’s nothing better than laughing your ass off during a night out. I've seen a lot of local comedians and even a few well known contestants from Last Comic Standing, but here are some of the famous funny people I’ve seen.

Kathy Griffin (three times)


Jo Koy (twice)


Chelsea Handler


Joel McHale


Hal Sparks


Russell Brand


Josh Wolf


Doug Benson


Daniel Tosh


(I have no idea why I didn't take pictures of the ladies. Weird.)

All of them were amazing, and as much as I love a great funny lady, I’ve got to say, I laughed a lot harder with the guys than the girls. I had tears in my eyes during Josh Wolf and Hal Sparks. Jo Koy was really funny too. He even gives mini '90s R&B concerts at the end of his set. But I saw him twice and it was basically the same show. I've always wanted to see Dane Cook, so hopefully I'll get a chance to do that at some point. We have tickets to see Demetri Martin this weekend and I'll be seeing Joan Rivers next spring with my sister.

Have you heard of Mike Birbiglia?! He has to be my favorite!

I don't really follow comedians though, hence why I only know Kathy Griffin and Russell Brand out of everyone on your list...

I used to love Kathy Griffin and go see her live but then it became the same type of thing over and over. I love Lisa Lampanelli (even though she's SO vulgar and offensive). Of course I love me my Aziz. I've even had the opportunity to see Dana Carvey do stand up a few years back, and Adam Sandler, Seth Rogan, David Spade, and Aziz do stand up for the filing of Funny People. I wish we lived closer so we could go to concerts and stand up shows together!

Josh Wolf!!! The only famous comedian I've seen is Bill Cosby. I really really really want to see Robin Williams. I missed him a couple of years ago. Boo.
