    I have so many that I recently wrote a hub about them but if I had to choose one...

    Nick Swardson.....boy from my home-state of Minnesota. One of the funniest dudes on earth:)

      I've watched a lot of Stand Ups ... from Dave Chappelle, through ventriloquists like Jeff Dunham and as famous as Chris Rock ..

      But still, up to this day, I believe the funniest comedian is Rowan Atkinson ... his stand-up may be years old, but is both funny and classy ... Most of today's stand up comedians tend to tell the story with a lot of f!@#-s, da!@-s, as@!! and so on ... A few vulgar words don't make you a true one man's show stand up, at least IMO

        That is a funny question.

        I agree many of them are too vulgar but I look past that and stick to the meat of the story. Some of them are too much, I will not watch them if every other word is the "f" word. Although some of Katt Williams' are like that, he's so funny I don't care.

      Jim Gaffigan, one of my favorites. I wrote a hub recently about my favorite comedians. Stand-up comedy is one of my favorite things to watch. Laughing at reality, I enjoy that:)

    I really love Peter Kay.  He is the funniest comedian in the uk, by far. I now live the States, and miss he good old fashioned Northern humour.
    If you've not heard if him, you should check him out on YouTube!

    Dave Chappelle hands down, with Louis C.K being a close second.

    Nothing Dave says is ever not funny.

      I saw louis ck live... he is funny, but I literally got so tired I could barely keep my eyes open from watching a grown man pretend masturbate for an hour and a half. Who knew?

      I saw Louis CK over the weekend, he's a bit controversial, but hilarious!! I also saw (I think it's Greg) Owen, I know the last name is right, I think it's Greg Owen. But he's a white southern boy and totally hilarious, haven't laughed that hard in awhile!

    Steven Wright is always hilarious.  I love his monotone style.
