Beside the obvious ones blasted on billboards- Louis CK, Amy schumer, etc- I'm pretty lost with the large amount of comedy out there. Who are some people and readily watchable sets, shows, or specials to see? I'll take live too as I live in LA. Thanks!
  1. Rory Scovel
    My favorite, not yet super well-known. I think he has a half-hour...but watch his sets on Conan. With or without Jon Dore. Magical.

  9. Tig Notaro
    "Tig" on Netflix. A wonderful way of finding humor in terrible things.

  15. Moshe Kasher & TJ Miller
    Both have specials - Moshe on Netflix and TJ through Comedy Central, but seeing them live, they're unmatched on terms of riffing and crowd work, just live in general!

  16. Mike Birbiglia's "My girlfriend's boyfriend"
    I watch this on a regular basis. So hilarious and beautiful.
