So was just curious, apart from Lewis Black, Colin Quinn and Kathy Griffin what other standup's have done runs on Broadway in the last 10 or so years. (not in plays or musicals but just standup)

Jackie Mason probably falls within that 10 year window. I was going to also say Barry Humphries (Dame Edna) but I think he usually has a few additional characters in his/her productions. If you view John Leguizamo as a standup, he did Ghetto Klown a few years ago.

OK, not clear from your original post (Colin Quinn ran 4 1/2 months BTW).

The only other one I can think of is Will Ferrell a few years ago doing Thank You America. It ran for about 6 or 7 weeks. After that, I'm out of ideas.

Robin Williams' show was just over ten years ago.

Seinfeld did, but not sure when that was. It was an HBO special, as well.
Now t/d/b/a haterobics on here.
