Does Anyone Put On A Show Like Tom Waits?

When Tom Waits plays live, he really puts on a show- with banter, jokes, stories, etc- as you can hear in the opening to "Nighthawks at the Diner"
. Does anyone else perform in this style- in the sort of jazz bandleader/comedian role?

I've been listening to "Nighthawks" a lot, as well as a couple of Waits live bootlegs, and I've been developing a really appreciation for this style of performance. Is there anyone else who performs like this- just gets up on stage and puts on a show for an hour or however long?
