Is there a single standup comedian nowadays who's actually funny? Pic very unrelated.

Is there a single standup comedian nowadays who's actually funny?

Pic very unrelated. I watched a few clips of him since he's starting to show up in various shows again and the guy's anecdotes are a total bore. The audience is laughing but I have no idea why.

    My respect for Mulaney as a man rose immensely when he just abruptly left his boring-ass mid wife to frick Olivia Munn. Such a goddamn chad move. His stupid wife cried and whined about it for a year while he was dicking down Munm to the point she got preggos and had their kid. Frick his stupid israelite ex-wife, what a dumb c**t. I hope her friends roast her constantly about being a post-wall childless failure. John Mulaney rules.

      Olivia Munn is a classless degenerate. She's the most shallow, empty-hearted, empty-minded woman I've ever seen. She was an obvious c**t from the first day I saw her on Attack of the Show. If you like her, you have terrible, terrible taste.

    Stand up is way too contrived to be funny. There’s a reason why we laugh way harder at something somebody said impromptu irl than at any pre written joke delivered by a comedian.
    One example is how vastly funnier Norm Macdonald was in his podcast/show compared to his stand ups. Same with Theo Von. Seinfeld was funnier in the show. Ricky Gervais on the radio, etc.
    The only guy who perfected it for me is Louis CK, he’s truly at his funniest while doing stand up.

        New CBB guest can be grating now bc they're often political or leftists entrenched in the culture war. One ep from last year featured a painfully unfunny female improviser doing a hacky "toxic male businessman" character and I had to turn it off. If only men actually acted as "toxic" as these delusional morons pretend they do.

          Yeah I still skip some eps. There was a troony on one last year that I instantly skipped. James Adomian doing Tom Leykis was just mocking "toxic masculinity" but he was hillarious so it can work. Lisa Gilroy is one of the funniest women in recent memory (and is a qt).

            Gilroy's Dicky Donnelly character is fricking hilarious. Lily Sullivan is funny, as well. Her Bridget Jones bit kills me. I just wish the improvisors would shut up about politics and focus on being funny.

        Did I say he wrote them alone? No fricking shit Larry David is the writer of Seinfeld, do you think he came up with everything by himself?
        And Seinfeld WAS in fact funnier in the show than in his stand up. Your reply is not the counterpoint you thought it was.

    Comedy is hard, people have put up so many mental defenses that getting people to actually laugh involuntarily without the guise of a large room of people or just getting 'clapter' is almost impossible. Everyone thinks just because they can make their friends or coworkers laugh, magically they're a comedian. The more people that think comedy and stand up is just a simple one person podcast or a soapbox for twitter opinions can be happy they are aiding in the death of laughter.
