    Ron White is brilliant as timing while Dane Cook can really tell a story. Cosby was so great despite being so clean. I always wonder how good he would've been if he dirtied up a little.

    Nothing wrong with it. Izzard did some great bits on history I always enjoyed and Oliver has great moments too.

    Eddie was so gifted but he kind of lost interest as his movie career took off. Carlin and Pryor are the godfathers of a whole generations. Unbelievably intelligent and so, so funny.

    People always forget how great Cosby was. His "Himself" special is one of the greatest ever.

    Darn Flashe, you seem to like everyone. I am on board with you though on most of these. I would suggest you check out Russell Peters, Anjelah Johnson, Garbriel Iglesias.

    Seinfeld is an acquired taste for a lot of people, but once he hooks you, it's wonderful.
