    The wife and I are in Chicago celebrating our anniversary and tonight we got tickets to Tom Segura at the Chicago Theatre. Has anyone see his new material?

    i listened to it and it’s one of the better specials of the early year

    super composed, well thought out and funny from start to finish

    Watched Anthony Jeselnik's new special last night. Not impressed.

    I was in line behind behind this destitute mother at the vending machine the other day. She spent her last dollar on a Snickers bar for her child. It was heartbreaking....

    I really wanted that Snickers.


    Repeat for an hour.

    Jeselnik said it was new material. Nope, was the same as the one he was just on tour for. Funny, but not as much as Thoughts and Prayers and the first time I heard it

    I couldn’t finish. I laughed p good at the first few, especially the one about his 90 yo neighbor, I just was done with the style shortly after that. I guess he’s just not for me although I think he’s really funny in short doses

    Not a surprise but I thought Schaub’s stand up sucked. Watched maybe 10 minutes of it before I had to turn it off. I might try to finish it at some point but prob not.

    i can’t be that hard on him because he introduced me to andrew schultz who’s shooting up my list of favorites fast, but i did eventually finish his hour and it was terribly unfunny

    ill admit i have laughed at him but it just looks like the stage isn’t his domain

    It’s free, so should be cool. Only watched one of his specials and it was ok.

    Should be fun enough

    Glad to see this thread. Feel like I've wasted a lot of time lately watching bad comedy (Jeselnik as a good example), helps to be able to filter it some.

    Malaysian dude, Dr. Jason Leong had a pretty good netflix special, not sure it's been mentioned

    Have yet to be able to make it through a Bill Burr special.

    Burr is hit or miss for me. Can’t remember the name, but one of his earlier ones is great. Think it was Let It Go and also the one before it Why Did I do This is pretty good. Everything since then for me has just been ok

    Sam Morrill and Mark Normand both putting out specials on YouTube this year was fantastic. Joe List as well.

    Yeah he's ridiculously overhyped. His voice grates on me. He's overly caustic and not usually clever enough to make that work or pay off.

    Wish some other guys like Marc Maron enjoyed the success that Burr does

    The best comedians usually start down a path of hard social commentary with good humor. Carlin, Hicks, Chappell all moved in this direction and did/due it well. Burr tries this, but it falls flat for me with him.

    His hazing of Philly people about the rocky statue while in Philly is pretty good. Burr has his moments, but overall I agree

    Spot on. He doesn't have the depth those others do, and his commentary just seems cheap.

    Yeah I keep hoping Marc Maron will find some success. Who knows maybe he'll get a podcast at some point.

    Maron is as successful as he wants to be and on his terms. I can respect that.

    What’s this about Maron not being successful? He is insanely successful. He has one of the biggest podcasts in the world, had his own tv show with his name, stared in glow. Like the guy is crazy successful over the last 15 years.

    Just for the sake of argument where would you rank the likes of Seinfeld, Rickles, Robin Williams, Steve Martin, Cosby (raping aside), Louis CK (beating off aside), Kauffman, Steven Wright along those hard social commentary lines?

    I see where your going and their all great and historic figures at the craft. Early CK, Wright and Seinfeld are still some of faves. I don’t like the styles or humor of most of the others as stand ups.

    In relation to Burr being considered one of the best he falls short as trying to elevate to level of social commentary that the other guys I mentioned. Which is what he tries to do now
