"Spinal Tap meets The Elephant Man" -Comedian Joey Vincent MPLS, MN.
Added 7 years ago by guest, 3 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
How can someone, who looks like his own ex-wife be considered a "ladies man"? His delivery is awful, and he doesn't have any actual jokes. He is not even a hardship-type comic. He is just a guy with hair and zero charisma. Dylan Moran has (well, had) hair, but he also has an incredible personality.

Easily top-3 of non-american comedians. The karisma and shameless self-awareness, along with great expression and over the top sexyness. Love both his films and his stand-up. Living legend

How can you say Russell Brand is a "TOTAL tosser?" His comedy is clearly too convoluted and complex for your tiny mind and goes straight over your head!!

Utterly amazing comedian. I find it refreshing that there's a comedian out there that is more than willing to poke fun at his own shortcomings and his delivery is just brilliant.

What a shame that Jack Benny seems forgotten by modern audiences. He should probably be #1 on this list. He basically invented stand up comedy (and the situation comedy form, too). An amazingly rich stage persona, and the best comic timing ever.

Comedian Joey Vincent Report Abuse
Some stand up comics give you clean comedy and others give you dirty comedy. Joey Vincent hits you with a comedy baseball bat! Joey's wide ranging, politically incorrect material crosses all social, cultural and ethnic barriers with his raw view of life and the world as he sees it. Joey touches on subjects such as race, pop culture, sex and just about every taboo in the book.

The only (yes i'll say it) funny comedienne there is. She found the women's voice in comedy. As opposed to other women comics, who try to imitate their male counterparts by being observational, rational and satirical, Sarah tries to show the utter stupidity of moral, religious and political norms and rules of conduct by playing a role of this "yesterday-born" naive, politically incorrect female. Amy Shumer is the closest to Sarah female comic, who also doesn't try to be "one of the guys".

Not very funny in my opinion. She just seems awkward and lame with no depth like it's not even her sense of humor she's displaying. And please don't try to tell me that is part of her appeal. I know what she's trying to do but to me it comes off as feeling a little pathetic. She doesn't deserve to be recognized as a comedian and I really have no idea how the hell she made it this far...Maybe Giraldo got it right when he made the comment about her using sex to get to where she's at?
