Every* Comedy Act I've Ever Seen in Person

I say every with an asterisk, because unlike my live music experiences, I have not done nearly as good a job over the years keeping track of my history of live comedy shows. It also doesn’t help that tickets aren’t something always associated with live comedy. That said, I think this list, if incomplete, is fairly accurate.

I have organized it alphabetically by last name, because this modern first-name alphabetization is insanity. For those comedians I have seen more than once, I have noted that fact with a parenthetical.
