Well, I know a lot of people here on UG (based off all the comedian threads I've seen) hate comedians who are overly popular when they just aren't that good; I, for one, hate both Dane Cook and Larry The Cable Guy with a passion, and have seen a lot of UGer's who agree. But, instead of being about the comedians who are overly-popular, lets introduce our fellow UGer's to comedians who deserve to be more popular than they are.

My starting example isn't the best, seeing as he is kind of popular already, but personally, I think Ben Bailey is awesome (and in my opinion, the video his name links to is worth watching).

So, your turn.

Daniel Tosh. His comedy is like Dane Cook's, but funny.

Dane Cook. He is hated not popular. He is way underrated.

It seems like Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn don't get the attention they deserve.
#6
I don't remember his name, but he was hilarious. He made this joke like "I used to not care if a girl was stupid, if she was hot, I'd agree with everything she said. The, when I reached about 25, it all changed. You can be hotter than Megan Fox, but if you don't ****ing know who Led Zeppelin is, I'm leaving."

I really wish I remembered his name.

And DeMetri Martins stand up specials are godly. Not so much his T.V. show.

Gotta thank you for that; looked him up on Youtube, found his Marketing rant, and it made me laugh out loud uncontrolably! Gratze!

He's popular. More so than most.

Hell yeah. He even won this year as Best Stand-up Comic on Comedy Central.

Jerry Dee is great also.

Mitch Hedberg, the 2nd funniest comedian I ever heard.

Henry Phillips, and Steven Lynch and Flight Of The Concords are waaaaaaaay too underrated for their comedy rock.

Whenever I mention him to anybody, nobody seems to know who he is.

Also, Big Jay Oakerson is pretty hilarious.

In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

I went as Darth Vadar to a school dance before.

Sure I got kicked out, but the DJ played the Imperial March and I just felt badass.

Yeah, Brian Posehn and Patton Oswalt don't get enough attention. Bob Odenkirk too. David Cross is pretty popular but he is a lot better than many of the more popular comedians. And also JON BENJAMIN.
