Before I was ten years of age I had memorized much of Bill Cosby's greatest hits, the one that starts off with his Noah monologue. I also have a soft spot for a Redd Foxx record my friend took from his father's record collection.

I think An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer is about as clever and funny and genius as songs can be, but he wasn't a stand up comedian. I also love every Python record.

I think Carlin is the way to go for stand up comedy records, he has so many great ones.

Bill Cosby's Noah was great... "ding"... "NOAH!".

when I was a kid I loved bill cosby's standup. In my teenage years I was way into San Kinison and Dice, with some old Cheech and Chong tapes thrown in for good measure. I don't think those Sam and Dice tapes hold up very well for me these days though. These days I would say that anything from Mitch Hedberg is a mandatory listen. I think that Carlin and Chris Rock have put out some pretty timeless albums as well. Both of their acts are basically some very sharp social commentary disguised as some funny as hell comedy.

Hedberg is amazing. You should check out Bill Hicks if you haven't.

1. Chris Rock: Bring the Pain

2. George Carlin: Jammin in New York, Doin It Again, You are all diseased.

I love the Carlin stuff from about 1990 and on. He just got older and angrier and funnier.

George Carlin - Occupation Foole (spelled with a final E just to piss them off)

George Carlin - Class Clown

I seen Carlin live when I lived in Denver. I never laughed so hard in my life.

Cosby's old stuff is great. Eddie Murphy's Raw. "Now that's a fire!"

Also, Jim Gaffigan, "Beyond the Pale," for the hot pocket bit.
