I've always loved comedy movies but I especially love stand up comedy and was wondering if you have a specific tastes for comedians or it's just a you know it when you see it. I've always enjoyed harsh comedy but I do know that's not the case with everyone obviously some of my favorites are

1. Jim Jefferies
2. Christopher Titus
3. Jimmy Carr

What are you comedic tastes or favorite comedians if you have one.

Those 3 are great.

Louis CK is great, but everyone knows that.

On the other side of the pond (to go along with Carr) I love Dara O'Briain and Aisling Bea for standup. David Mitchell and Lee Mack are great on the panel shows.

EDIT: I forgot to mention Mitch Hedberg and Lewis Black. I am ashamed of myself.

Some comedians just have a much better grasp on comedy than others. As someone who will be starting stand-up soon, I'm very picky when it comes to picking favorite comedians.

Mike Birbiglia is the best around right now. No question. His latest tour Thank God For Jokes is incredible. Then Bill Burr and Louis CK are also both very good and have been around for a while. As far as newer guys, Michael Che is fantastic. Can't wait to see him in the Weekend Update chair. For all-time comedians, it's hard to beat Richard Pryor and George Carlin.

My least favorite comedian possibly ever is Anthony Jeselnik. He brags about how much he knows about comedy in his act but it takes no talent or intelligence to do what he does. I used to think the same about Daniel Tosh, before I realized how he is on Tosh.0 is a character. Still not a fan because of that incident with his rape "joke", but I can appreciate him a bit more.

Can't forget about the ladies either! Sarah Silverman is my personal favorite. I also really like Jessica Williams and Samantha Bee from The Daily Show.

The bragging is a joke though. But definitely not a style everyone finds funny, for sure.

I'm generally not a fan of stand up. I probably would be if I tried it myself and failed hard. But I've never been a big fan.

The dude from Nathan for you really makes me laugh though.

It doesn't help that I can't enjoy insult comedy. That's part of why what Norm McDonald did in that one Roast was incredible.

Norm McDonald is another one of my all-time favorites. I don't think David Letterman gets enough credit in comedy either. He's a bit obnoxious sometimes, but damn is he quick. Even now that he's older.

This list is damn good. (haven't seen too much Jim Norton though)

I'll add Donald Glover, Dave Attell, and Kevin Hart to mine though.
