For the last 10 years, there’s been a pretty incredible live comedy show happening in Los Angeles, called Comedy Death-Ray, then Comedy Bang! Bang!. The live show recently ended, though a Podcast and an IFC Show live on.
The show’s creator, Scott Aukerman, posted an almost-complete set list of every live show, and I was compelled to crunch it.
I made a list of the number of different shows each performer appeared in, and also showed (in graph form) the number of shows they appeared in every year over the 10 year run. This is just the top 50 performers.
If you’re a comedy fan, there are a lot of familiar names on this list. Especially if you’re a comedy podcast fan. 6 out of the Onion AV Club’s Best 10 of 2012 are hosted by people who performed here all the time. Also, I think I can see where a number of my favorite podcasters know their frequent guests from.
If you’re a comedy fan and you don’t know most of the names on this list, well, start clicking. Everyone on here is worth your time.
Something odd is going on with the graphs sometimes; if you don’t see them below, hit reload and it seems to work.
