Joe Rogan weaves a fantastic psychedelic rant through the first half of this performance. It's polished and delivered with exuberance. The crowd loves it, too, which makes the experience all the better. The second half of the performance is a question and answer session with the crowd that is also successful. Rogan is the master of the room here, performing a funny routine and improvising with his audience.

Marc Maron Stand Up Routine

This Has to Be Funny

Marc Maron is easily one of the most talented comedians to emerge from this past decade. I only recently got into him, and I can't believe I hadn't noticed him sooner. Listening to Maron brings backs feelings of listening to Bill Hicks for the first time. But the one thing that Maron has over Hicks and Carlin and other great social critics of our time is that he incorporates his rage and anxiety about his personal life into his comedy in a major way. As a fellow Leftist, pissed off, anxious screw up, I can relate to this dude in a way that I don't really get with other comedians.

      I would add Greg Fitzsimmons' FitzDog Radio and Art Howard at Night to this list. I don't have Sirius/XM so I love getting my dose of Greg in podcast form. Art Howard is not a professional comedian, I don't think, but his show is still excellent.

      Awesome list, I only knew about The Onion, so I will be trying some of the others you have listed.

      I listen to The Onion podcast (hilarious) and will certainly be checking into some of your suggestions! Nice list.

      I have heard of The Onion but not any of the others. I guess I don't listen to podcasts, at least not yet, but it's good to know that you can get these.

      I've never really listened to comedy podcasts before, but the one that I want to check out is The Nerdist Podcast for some geek humor. Thursday Nights w/ The Big Bang Theory on TV is just not enough geek humor in one week for me.

      I haven't heard Chris Hardwicke's but I've heard really good things about it so I'll definitely have to check it out. Have you heard Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast? That one is pretty decent once he gets into it.

      I did a lens on Bill Burr. He's a great stand up and there are a couple videos on there as well as a link to his podcast. Check it out:

      I'd encourage everyone to check out Masters of None, they're on iTunes & at 3 former radio guys who debate stuff in life and pop culture, interview celebrities (don't know how they get people like Christopher freakin Doc Brown Lloyd), and goof on each other. It's one of my favorite podcasts going. For fans of Opie & Anthony, Adam Carolla, etc.

      One that I really enjoy and discovered only a few months ago is called, "Stop Podcasting Yourself" and is hosted from Vancouver by a couple of funny comedians named Graham Clark and Dave Shumka. They have a lot of funny bits and usually have various comics join them as weekly guests. I highly recommend it. Check them out.

      Great list! I like some of the old-school stuff, like Jerry Seinfeld and George Carlin. Zach Galifianakis also has some very interesting bits.

      I always thought Adam Carolla was pretty funny. A nice collection of comedians you've got here.
