7 Stand-Up Comedians You're Currently Sleeping On

Looking for some laughs for an hour or so? Check out these amazing stand-up comedians!

Preacher Lawson.

Often described as the "next Eddie Murphy," Lawson broke onto the scene as a finalist in the twelfth season of "America's Got Talent." His fast-paced delivery of jokes will make you feel exhausted (in the best way, of course).

Hannah Gadsby.


I first discovered this Australian comedian while sitting in an airport. Assuming she was just a carbon copy of Tig Notaro (who appears later on this list), I put on her Netflix stand-up special "Nanette" in search of some background noise. What I found was funny, deeply moving, personal, and sometimes all-out depressing take on her life as a gay woman. I could never recommend anything more.

James Veitch.

This British comedian has two things I don't have: guts and improvisational talent. Veitch's comedy is purely situational, and his most famous bit in which he replies to spam email is the most clever way you can bring situational comedy into the twenty-first century.

Greg Proops.

Yes, there's an "r" in his last name, don't worry. lmprov-comedy aficionados may know him as the one guy with the glasses on "Whose Line Is it Anyway?" Proops is a talkative and blunt comedian who puts out a weekly podcast titled "The Smartest Man in the World," where he gets increasingly inebriated talking about whatever he wants to. His off-the-cuff humor has turned into political banter in the most recent years, and his new comedy album "The Resistance" is something you should definitely check out.

Michelle Wolf.

Michelle Wolf


Yep, the lady who pissed off Donald Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner. Her comedy is witty, timely, and, above all else, not something you should get overly offended by.

Chris Fleming.

John Mulaney's comedy was once described as niche-humor. As a Mulaney fan, I agree with this… but then I discovered Chris Fleming. Fleming's humor represents such a specific type of person that even I don't even know how to describe. It's hilarious, nevertheless. Check out his stand-up special Showpig, you won't regret it.

Tig Notaro.

Tig Notaro


Notaro is the definition of dry humor, more meant to perform in an intimate coffee house than a massive stadium. Nevertheless, her insanely clever jokes are simply hilarious. Her jokes on motherhood are top-notch and can be seen in her most recent special, Happy To Be Here.

All of these comedians have specials available on multiple streaming services and YouTube.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
