6 Comedians College Students Love

By Victoria Robertson on January 1, 2019

Sometimes, you just need a good laugh. And when it comes to the end of the year in college, that’s needed more than ever.

So as you say goodbye to finals week and hello to the holidays, keep in mind that there are plenty of laugh-worthy events out there to keep you occupied this winter. So it’s time to sit back, relax and prepare to laugh your face off.

With that being said, here are the top six comedians that college students love so you can laugh just as hard as the rest of us (especially since they are all touring now)!

1. Chris D’Elia

Perhaps best known for his interpretation of drunk girls, Chris D’Elia is a college favorite, and for good reason. While his stand-up is a bit on the vulgar side, he is a comedian that speaks best to the millennial generation, as his routines are young, fun and upbeat.

That being said, he is currently touring and has tickets available for sale, so if you’re looking for a new comedian that’s likely to speak his mind, this is your guy!

2. Iliza Shlesinger

A newer comedian growing exponentially in fame, Iliza Shlesinger brings the female voice to comedy in letting her viewers in on the inner workings of the female brain. Spoiler alert: there’s a lot going on there. For a preview, check out her comedy album “War Paint,” and you’ll probably get the idea.

She has incredible impressions/voice gimmicks that set her stand-up aside from similar female comedians, and it’s her relatability that really resonates with her audience. Again, Iliza is currently touring so tickets are now available for all looking for a good laugh!

3. John Mulaney

If you’re going to watch one bit, and one bit only, of John Mulaney’s, I strongly suggest the Salt and Pepper Diner. And once you’ve seen that bit, there’s no doubt that you’ll want to watch the rest of the stand-up that Mulaney has to offer.

The Chicago native has had several specials on Netflix, still available for your perusal, and is currently on tour as well, which means that you can see him live. And trust me, you’re going to want to.

His super relatable, self-deprecating stand-up routine is going to have you in stitches, without a shadow of a doubt. You’ll fall in love with his dog, Petunia, and you’ll fall even harder for his stand-up routine.

4. Amy Schumer

One of the biggest names in comedy right now, Amy Schumer has starred in several films, performed stand-up in more cities than you can count and still manages to maintain a semi-normal, relatable and understandable personal life.

Schumer’s voice is offensive as much as it is full of heart, which sets her stand-up in a league of its own. She isn’t afraid to offend anyone just as she isn’t afraid to be herself, whatever that means.

If you’re looking for honest stand-up that will have you laughing (and likely cringing as well), this is the person to see!

5. Kevin Hart

While currently under a bit of a magnifying glass due to past comments that have taken him out of the running for the Oscars hosting gig, his stand up is still one of the best acts that comedy has to offer.

 Kevin Hart has sold out stadiums with his stand-up routine, and for good reason. Hart is certainly self-deprecating, but he also has that charisma and natural stage presence that keeps you enthralled from the beginning to the end of his routine.

Hart pokes fun at himself, his celebrity friends, money, love life, kids: anything you can think of, he has probably made fun of it. And you can bet it’s hilarious, no matter what!

6. Gabriel Iglesias

Known more commonly by his fans as Fluffy, Gabriel Iglesias is the first to tell you that he is not a Hispanic comedian. He’s just a comedian… that happens to be Hispanic.

Iglesias can use his voice in ways that are unrecognizable, makes people laugh with his stories of fame and fortune as well as those of his personal, very normal life.

Really, Iglesias can make just about everything funny, and after watching just one of his stand-up specials, you will definitely find yourself in love with the comedian.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, which holds true in the world of comedians. So while you may have found yourself at the brink of stress throughout the entirety of the past month, it’s time to finally relax and have a good time and, of course, laugh.

When it comes to having a good laugh, these six comedians will have you clenching your stomach in fits of laughter, guaranteed.

So whether you’re gifting tickets to a friend, family member or roommate, or simply treating yourself to a night on the town full of laughter, these comedians all put on quite a show.
