The Big Bumper Thread of Stand-up Comedy
I know we have a funny videos thread. But I have decided in my infinite* wisdom that we also need a thread dedicated to the honourable art of stand up comedy.

So, here's the place to put stand-up comedy, interviews with stand-up comedians and programmes about stand-up comedy.

Bring out your Emo and Izzard. Let loose with your Robin Williams (back when he was coked up and funny). Lay waste to teh interwebs, with your Louis CK and Shappi Korsandi. Old and new. Mainstream and niche. It's all good. It's all butter.

I'mma kick off with a little Daniel Kitsune (nsfw)

And follow up with some Stewart Lee. Went to see him live doing this show (Carpet Remnant World) about a year or so ago. None of this was in it, because he rewrites the current affairs stuff as he goes around the country.

Note to American dwellars: bear with it

(also some nsfw language)

I was going to post a clip of Roy Chubby Brown talking about Islam, to clear up any confusion over references - but I got a couple of minutes into the clip and threw up a little in my mouth

Shappi Khorsandi:

Great thread idea!

I'd like to say up front that any standup comedy clips could very well be NSFW!

Here's some Wanda Sykes. Hoping I'll find one of my favorite clips by her, but this one's pretty good:

I can only find these Comedy Central, so can't imbed the video:

Hahaha. I didn't see that when you first posted it.

'Even the sound of bacon is like hearing applause' hahahaha. Beautiful.

Having been to see Richard Herring last night, I've been on a herring kick today, which naturally led to a Stewart Lee kick (his former comedy partner and still bezzie mate).

Rather than posting his comedy material though, I'm going to post one of his 'Don't Get me Started' programmes. This one is about blasphemy and free speech. Really interesting, given his personal experience of religious fundamentalist objections to his work (Jerry Springer Opera)

Don't Get me Started: What's so bad about blasphemy?

And now for some light to speak - from Richard Herring's "Talking Cock" tour (his answer to the Vagina Monologues) "Where have you put your penis for fun?"

A really excellent interview with Marcus Brigstocke, from The Comedian's Comedian

Mark Thomas and Susan Calman talking at the free LGBT rights comedy gig in Edinburgh, outside the Russian embassy (2013)

Time for a dose of utter weirdness - The Mighty Boosh, Live:

Bear with it - takes a little while to find its rhythm, if you're not already clued into their characters from the radio and tv shows. Also, probably nsfw
