Another comedian to check out: Nick Swardson. He's absolutely hilarious. His comedy is so natural, kind of like you're listening to a good friend talk about real stuff that is really funny. His impressions are great too.
You've probably seen him in recent movies since he's growing in popularity. He works a lot with Adam Sandler, being in movies such as Don't Mess with the Zohan, The Benchwarmers, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Blades of Glory, and Click. He is amazing at being a great cameo--the small role that is memorable and gets a quick laugh.
Besides these movies, check out his stand-up. Watch him perform here.
One bit I really like of his is when he compares babies to drunk people. They really do have a lot of similarities. He says that you talk to a baby the same way you would talk to your drunk friend: "What do you need? Why are you crying? What are you trying to say? I can't understand him. Do you have to go to the bathroom? Why are you taking off your clothes? Oh no, he just threw up on himself." Funny stuff.
For those of you who have seen him, what do you think of him?
