Doug Stanhope, Bill Burr.
Stanhope is miles a head any living standup comedian imho. Had the pleasure of watching his 150 min+ drunken rambling last time he was in Oslo.
Like you, I do like Burr a lot. Listen to his Monday Morning Podcast all the time. The animated Netflix-series he has created is also decent (F is for Family).
Dag Sørås is another favorite. He is Norwegian, but do shows in English abroad (did a lot of shows with Stanhope last time he was in Europe).

It's been a while, but I used to listen to The Doug Stanhope Podcast. Always interesting (at least the early episodes)
While I'm allready here, lounging. I might as well recomend two documentaries about this subject. Both placed high on my 500<400 list.
Call Me Lucky (2015)
A biography about comedian Barry Crimmins. Revealing in detail a dark and painful past that inspired his life-changing campaign of activism in the hope of saving others from a similar experience. (On Netflix)
The Unbookables (2012)
Sean Rouse, Andy Andrist, James Inman +++ turing together in a crappy van in crappy venues with crappy audiences.
