    Are there any good English speaking standup comedians ?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_stand-up_comedians
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_stand-up_comedians

    Like you see this is a big list...

    In my country only Alex Agnew and Phillippe Geubels are good ones for younger people. They make jokes about Jewish, African people, or simply stupid things about daily life

    I know I mentioned two kinds of people here which can be interpreted as racism. But the art is to laugh about something while still respecting them.

    Please post only good standup comedians which can be understood internationally. I don't want to hear jokes about the UK king family for example. Because it is irrelevant :)

    Anyone good ideas?

    Please don't attack me for racism. I respect everyone.

    my favorite is Richard Pryor.

    so that's what i recommend, he's very raw, plenty of swearing and racism.

    while i'm not a racist in the least, i consider his stand ups the work of a genius :p

    Can't really beat Carlin. He is still my favorite of all time. Joe Pesci rest his soul.
