Irreligious Stand-up Acts
#1
There are a few very popular stand-up comedians who are openly atheist- today's pop culture comedy stars being those like Bill Maher. There are some off-beat comedians who do excellent work. But the best ones are long gone.

Hicks is not as well known in India as Carlin or Maher, but he was my favorite stand up comedian. Please post your favorite irreligious/ anti-religious/ atheist stand up comedy moments!

Pat Condell! This guy is not really doing stand up acts in this videos, but his sharp eloquence and biting criticism is wonderful to hear. And he is quite funny too.

I wish Chris Rock had done some irreligious stand up.. He's just fabulous, and I love how he uses timely profanity in his acts :-)

The next best thing thats not taken.. 'Family Guy'.. got to love his irreverence. Below is just a sampling.

This TED talk by Julia Sweeney belongs to this list I think.

I've heard her whole "Letting Go of God" show, it's really really good. I think if the more level-headed believers heard it, they would really understand how such a thing is possible.
