Geddy Lee often attends stand-up comedy shows in both the UK and North America, so recently asked him to list off what he thinks are the 10 best stand-up comedians. Included on his list are Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Pryor, Amy Schumer, Woody Allen and many others. Here's what he had to say about Woody Allen:

The last person I'd pick is one of the great, overlooked stand-up comedians, and that's Woody Allen. Listen to his early stand-up records - they're so smart and absurd, and funny. He was from that whole absurdist school of comedy, and he had such great comic timing. I highly recommend those early records of him playing in clubs. They're so funny.

You can check out the entire list on the website here (thanks Shaun O).
