Yep, no Jerry Seinfeld. I think he's overrated. There I said it.


  1. Hey, will Seinfeld fans see this list and say, "What's the deal with that?" Thank you, thank you.

  2. ahahhaah. I like the show (even though, I think that is grossly overrated too) but I'm not really into his stand up; go figure. He's nothing like Bill Hicks, lol.

  3. Insanely popular? Filthy stinking rich? Accessible? None of those apply to Bill, though I'd still recommend him to anyone who can handle a little dark humor.

  4. Yeah, just saying Bill's comedy is dark is a bit of an understatement though.

  5. True. No women on this list, you sexist pig. I kid. Any females you can recommend?

  6. Janine Garofalo. I guess. I know I thought the same. But, I'm just being honest about my favorites. Margaret Cho is influenced by Hicks, many like her, but I think she's annoying.
