This is the third installment in my series on stand-up comedy. Here I am bringing you 10 more of my favorite stand-up comedy routines from various stand-up comics. If you want to read the previous two posts, just look at the bottom at the related links. Otherwise, enjoy these 10 videos as they will bring you lots of joy and laughter!
Lewis Black is a veteran comedian, best known for his angry rants around political issues, especially on his segment "Back in Black" shown on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. His stand-up routine is quite direct and deals with the bigger picture, and again, usually touches on the political regime and other aspects of the social life. Nevertheless, he is funny as hell.

Jim is a prolific stand-up comic, with 7 CDs to date and many live shows across US. His style is a little bit quieter than other comedians out there, but his jokes are edgy and direct. I particularly enjoy his way of addressing the audience and sort of express what he thinks the audience is thinking about his act, as the act goes on. Quite funny!
Jeff Gaffigan Stand-up - Beyond The Pale - Christmas and Easter
Besides being very pretty and successful as an actress, Jeaneane is a very funny stand-up comedian. Her act is usually a list of many things that just seem to have popped up in her mind and she twists them up in a way that makes the audience roll on the floor laughing. She is using self-deprecating humor in a way that is very unique and the audience loves it!
Janeane Garofalo Stand-up 1995
Dave Attell seems to be the eternal guy's "guy". The one who never sleeps and spends most of his time in bars and clubs. I am not sure that that's his real-life persona, but that is the persona that he puts up in his act. On top of that, the image is augmented by his old show, Insomniac. His material is usually quite adult and his jokes are very edgy; you need to be in the right set of mind, but once you are you will enjoy his show to the fullest.

Dana is a comedian and comedy writer who appeared often on TV and talk shows. Perhaps not as popular as the other comedians on this page, but still extremely funny. He does voices and impressions and his humor is sharp and straight to the point. He talks about day-to-day mundane things and brings them up into funny stories.
Dana Gould Stand-up
Larry Miller is another veteran - comedian, movie and TV actor. With over 50 movies under his belt and many TV shows, many people still know him from his entertaining HBO specials. His material is usually very clean, and even if it touches adult subjects, it's delivered with outmost care. His jokes are complex and witty, and always get the deserved laughs.

Demetri Martin is a multi-talented actor, artist, musician, writer and humorist. How many times do you get to see someone who can sing, draw and write jokes? His act often includes all of these and his routine is usually accompanied by music played by himself. His jokes sometimes seem isolated, without a story line or connection, but they are extremely deep and witty. It may take a second to figure out a punch line, but once you get it, you will LOL for sure...

Gabriel, who calls himself the Fluffy Guy, is best known for his loud aloha shirts, humorous impersonations and straight-up humor. He's a really electrifying and gifted performer and extremely active. He's on the road a lot and everywhere he goes he gives the audience what they are expecting: pure fun.
Gabriel Iglesias Stand-up - Drinking and Driving
Selected by Jerry Seinfeld to be the host of the "Marriage Ref", Tom Papa is another very funny comedian and actor. He combines the observational humor with comedy mined from his own life, so he follows a bit the steps of Jerry. Until his TV show, he was a bit more obscure than the other comedians presented here, but in the last year his popularity grew and people started to know his stand-up a bit more.

John is a young comedian who is probably best known due to his appearances on the Chelsea Lately show on E!. His popularity started to grown in 2003 and I think he has a great future as a comedian. I find his act funny and entertaining and I start laughing only when hearing his rather strange voice...
