Just click on it. I agree nothing comes close to Carlin, but Jeselnik is one of the very few who's actually funny and does so in a unique style.

Wylie's repeated failed attempts at "PWNING" me.
What does he mean when he says words?

Yeah javyn, stay away from Jeselnik. You would probably be offended at yourself for laughing at his shit.

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

I don't think George Carlin should be used in the same sentence with any other "stand-up" in history. Except perhaps Lenny Bruce. And even then it is a stretch. To be a truly great "comedian", imo, one must make you look at yourself and ask, "Why am I laughing at that because, after all, it is a tragedy".

I will admit that no comedian has ever made me laugh until I thought I would be sick, except Eddie Murphy. But, Eddie was just funny.

My recommendation was Cum Town dude, I doubt I'd be offended. But I'll check it out then LOL

Bill Hicks was brilliant at that as well.

Also, in fairness, Freek De Jonge is easily in the same league as Carlin. He is the reason why I feel sorry for people who don't speak Dutch. The dude's brilliant, basically invented a form of stand-up that I haven't seen anyone do before him: most of his past shows were two hour long fictional stories that takes you on a journey that's always also a commentary on the tragic state of the world, whilst being crazily funny, thought-provoking, and each show it felt like I actually learnt stuff. He's approaching 80 years old now, still performs. Not the same quality anymore, but still each time a wonderful 2 hours watching it.
