Thanks for the reply. You're right, though, I guess it's kind of a moot point, as something like that isn't going to garner many votes from the group.

I mean, I'm in the "if it's not expressly forbidden, I might nominate it" crowd. Bo Burnham: Make happy is #1 on my "Favorite films on 0 lists" list. And I'd enthusiastically nominate it for a 2016 poll. And several other polls.

I have Jim Gaffigan: Beyond the Pale (2006) rated as a 9/10 - I thought it was hilarious and something I'd recommend to a lot of people. But I didn't nominate it here because it's a guy talking on a stage; and while you get more out of it by watching it than simply by listening, I didn't want to nominate it over another film that did more to move me than Gaffigan.

As with all polls people vote for whatever they feel fits. If you consider it a film, go for it. There have never been any restrictions on standups though I don't believe a standup film has ever made a list (maybe a lower position).

The "Man on the Moon" probably made it. :shifty:

Are stand-up comedy TV specials (e.g., https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0815456/) eligible in these types of polls? I assumed they would be, but after reading people with strong opinions in the Musical results thread, I thought I would ask.
As one of the Year by Year Polls administrators, I would definitely accept votes for stand-up comedy TV specials in those polls.

Hi JD,I hope you are having a good weekend, and with the trailer making it look like a flick which could have come from the peak years of HK cinema, how did you find Exiled to be?

Thanks.
