6 Stand-Up Comedy Performances That’ll Crack You Up


People say laughter is the best medicine, and they’re not wrong. When you’re feeling down in the dumps, watching a good comedy show or stand-up comedy performance can work wonders. These six hilarious performances will keep you laughing for the rest of the week; just make sure there are no kids around because they contain a lot of graphic language.

1. Chelsea Peretti – One of the Greats

Known for her role as Gina on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Peretti is even more hilarious on stage. Watch her mock ‘no makeup’ Instagram photos and talk about what it would be like to text her dog on YouTube.

2. Jim Jefferies – This is Me Now

Known for his hysterically offensive brand of comedy, Jefferies takes on Donald Trump and laughs about life as a single dad. Check out his show on Netflix – but don’t watch if you’re easily offended.

3. Sarah Silverman – A Speck of Dust

After a recent health scare, Silverman returns to the stage wittier than ever; this time poking fun at her family members and talking about funny life experiences. You can watch her show on Netflix.

4. Russell Peters – Comedy Now Special

This was his first show ever before he got famous, and it was undoubtedly the best. Watch Peters discussing his strict upbringing and arranged marriages on YouTube.

5. Iliza Shlesinger – Freezing Hot

Although she’s not always funny to the male audience, Shlesinger outdid herself with this one. Check out her show on Netflix to hear her take on relationships, Pinterest, and why women love autumn.

6. Eddie Murphy – Delirious

We’ve saved the best for last! In this classic show, Murphy mocks James Brown, talks about his childhood, and shows off his spot-on impressions. Check the show out on Netflix.
