Everyday this month I will be posting one of my favorite comedians. There will be plenty of videos and a little bit about why I like them. The videos are most likely NSFW.
It was tough for me to decide between Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. It is funny that the spots two through four are occupied by the comedians on Talking Funny. I wonder why that is? Probably because they are all great and where other comedians may have some funny jokes, or one great special, these guys raise the bar to another level each time.
I have seen every Chris Rock special. Like Seinfeld, Rock is a smart guy, he takes the little things and makes them funny. He also can take on the bigger topics and make you think, yet make you laugh. Every special he has done is funnier than the last.
I always think that if you want to watch a master at comedic timing (aside from the guy who occupies the top spot on my list) then Chris Rock is the perfect comedian. By timing, I am talking about how a comedian is able to pause and repeat words for effect. Rock does this so well. If you were teaching a class on stand-up, he would definitely be one that would be required watching.
Seriously, I could post like 50 videos of his…
