I've seen both Doug Stanhope and Jim Jefferies live 7 times. Both excellent every time.
The first time I saw JJ live the place was 75% empty and it was a small venue. The last time it was packed and it was an arena.
Saw Louis CK a few months ago at an unadvertised gig in a venue that barely held 200 people in Tampa and was almost sat on the stage with him.
His opening line was 'I used to play arenas'.
Yeh but you didn't use material that dark. Brilliant though.
Best live was Frank Skinner in Sheffield about 2002, almost 50% was material about stuff that happened that weekend.
Billy Connolly was good but on stage way too long - almost 3 hours. And Steve Coogan was fantastic.
Eddie Izard wasn't far behind Skinner, but his newer stuff is too anal imho.
Seen loads of US-based comedians since moving to Florida that aren't that well known in the UK, but of those that you guys may know, Trevor Noah was brilliant both times, Chris Rock was good, but a bit ranty about his divorce, as was Bill Maher about Trump.
Would love to see Gervais, Jimmy Carr, Judah Friedlander, Rick Vos, Dave Attell and a few more that I don't think have been to Orlando
