I don’t think a network will ever get four shows that compliment each other better than these four. Each one will be remembered for decades to come for adding something fresh to comedy. No one does comedy like NBC.
No one DID comedy like NBC you mean
It’s true. This lineup was a big moment for NBC. Hard to imagine them being there again.
For all of us that got it yesterday, and those who are going to get it…it’s soooo beautiful/fun/amazing.
I could keep going, but I think 15 is a good number to end on for this project. These are some of my favorite comedians out there right now.
Names > Top, Left to Right the Down, Left to Right:
Brian Regan, Marc Maron, Todd Barry, Kyle Kinane, Morgan Murphy, Louis C.K., Bill Burr, Patton Oswalt, John Mulaney, Hannibal Buress, Brian Posehn, Pete Holmes, Demetri martin, Maria Bamford, and Mike Birbiglia.
I love stand-up comedy and think it is one of the few mediums that continues to be a viable source of truth in today’s culture. Some honorable mentions that I didn’t quite get around to were Eugene Mirman, Nick Thune, Tig Notaro, Anthony Jeselnik, Mike Lawrence, Joe Derosa, Jim Gaffigan, Todd Glass, Rob Delaney, Lewis Black, and David Cross. Not to mention the classics like Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Steve Martin, Pryor, Cosby, Rickles, and while I’m at it: Seinfeld, Rock, Stanhope, Norm McDonald, and the one and only Mitch Hedberg.
Thanks to everyone who’s kept up with it. Enjoy.
I LOVE THIS. PLEASE do a Jeselnik one! (and Thune!!)
