I guess you have to find the right combination to make a good late night host.  Chris had a good run on HBO, but got away with tons more do to it being on cable.  He may not have wanted to do watered down comedy.  He's my 2nd favorite stand up comedian behind Carlin.

I still don't have Chris up with Pryor, Kinneson, or Bill Hicks.  He is very close though.

I guess its a generation thing.... Rock was big when I was growing up in the 90'-2000s.   Pryor, Murphy and even Kinneson were before me.  My only memory of Kinneson is on Married with Children when Al died.

I caught the end of Kinneson.  I didn't see Delirious until way after it came out.  I just have gone back to see what these guys from the past have done.  Of this generation it has to be Rock, Dice, Black, Hart, Louis CK, Chappelle, Patrice O'Neal, David Cross, and Roseanne.

I've been watching a lot of Jimmy Carr on Youtube.  He's a Brit that does a lot of edgy stuff, rape jokes, sodomy, nazi's all kinds of stuff.  I love his deadpan delivery.

I dont know his comedy much but Marc Maron's WTF podcast has helped me deal with my commute a lot in the last year. Its basically a 1 on 1 interview. Sometimes serious, sometimes just silly, but its often really interesting. Him and Louis CK both breaking down because they felt the other abandoned them, Robin Williams (sucessfully) and Carlos Mencia (unsucessfully) arguing about being joke thieves, Kumail Nanjiani talking about threats to himself and then his parents for performing his one man show. SOme great stuff.

 

People I listen to now on Comedy Central radio and like - John Mulaney and Hannibal Burress both make me laugh a lot. Amy Schumer too (never seen her show).

This was recorded 21 yrs ago.  It is amazing how much foresight Hicks had.

This was released after Sam died.

Amy was in town a few weeks ago.  

 

I have been listening to Joe Rogans ols pod casts.  Some of them are really funny.  The Schumer one had me rolling.

Mulaney is my favorite in a really long time. It might be because he's an effeminate little girl like me, but nevertheless.

Did you hear his 'greatest meal ever' story? The one that involved no food and Tom Jones on the jukebox? Had me laughing out loud in my car.

Does Jimmy Fallon do any interviews, or does he try to be the star every night?

He barely does interviews.  I think that concept of the talk show dying vary quickly.  He is sortof doing a variety show.
