So far recently I've watched ones from Mike Birbiglia, Louis C. K., Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Patton Oswalt, Michael Che, Donald Glover and Hannibal Buress.

No Jeff Foxworthy or stand up that is deemed family oriented.

I especially love Brit humor and am looking into more female comedians and I love sarcastic humor.

They have so many on Netflix I haven't heard of so I don't want to just start blind watching them.

Cheers.

I believe Netflix (Canadian anyways...) just added Delirious and Raw to it's line up. They're worth a watch at least once a year.?

Thanks I've seen both a bunch of times. Looking for more current stuff along the lines of some of the ones I've listed.

Look for Chris Porter: Ugly and Angry on Netflix. I've seen it like five times, it's a personal favorite.

Jim Jefferies can be funny. If you enjoy him then you'll need to check out his short lived TV show, which is also on Netflix (Legit).

Most of Carlin's stuff used to be on Netflix but I haven't checked in a while.

As for female comedians, I'd suggest Ali Wong and Chelsea Peretti.

I'll probably check out Doug Stanhope and Ali Wong next. Thanks. They also got some old Bill Hicks on Netflix. That's cool.

Last I checked John Mulaney's two specials were on Netflix.

Pete Holmes has a new one on HBO.

And although he doesn't have any TV specials Kumail Nanjiani is worth checking out, even if it's just clips on YouTube.

I read somewhere that this year Netflix is releasing a new comedy special every week so keep an eye out for them.

Yeah, I used to watch him a lot back in the day. Good stuff.
Will check out the Bill Burr too, DP.

The gorilla story he told on his most recent special...I've never laughed so hard that my eyes hurt before.

Not a 'Special' but here's pure silliness...

Eddie Pepitone on The Todd Glass Show

Both Todd and Eddie are great; I can't vouch for their stand-up comedy though.

The new Dave Chappelles are great, with "episdoe 1" being the newest, I think, and the second has material that I've heard on his tour from about 2014-2015.

Bill Burr's Walk Your Way Out was also pretty great. Jen Kirkman's Just Keep Living is delightfully neurotic. Joe Rogan's Triggered is a step down from his last couple, funny at times but nah, brah.

Chris Tucker's special from 2015, which I just watched, was a big disappointment. It appears to have been severely edited, so I imagine that there were even more dull spots in the performance than made it to the film, but, man, has he lost a lot of his timing and energy. Some good parts here and there, but it begs the inevitable question about Eddie Murphy, and how maybe it's better for guys so far out of the game to stay retired. (btw, Chappelle, at least, never technically retired, playing shows during this hiatus in media releases, and I'm sure that this is why he seems much more relaxed and sharp in his "comeback".)

Burr is amazing, one of the very few comics that can make laugh consistently

This is one of the funniest standup specials I've seen in recent memory.

It's not the usual special taped in a big auditorium. It's cut together from numerous comedy clubs on one of his tours. So the vibe is definitely different. Plus I've never seen anyone work a crowd like he does. Numerous crowds in this case.
