        Mitch Hedberg was amazing! If he hadn't had died, he would probably be one of the top comedians in the country today.  I can still pop in one of his old albums and laugh the entire time.  His one-liners are awesome!

    George Carlin is also one of my favorites - he rocked! Also Robin Williams. I saw him on HBO the other night and couldn't stop laughing. He is just incredibly funny big_smile

    Joe Rogan is also pretty funny. Not many people I know have seen him do anything but fear factor, but he actually has some pretty good skits.

    I think for Comedians you can't go past Jerry Lewis and Bob Hope for first rate comedians of all time. They will always be in our memories I think  from Beautybabe

    Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, those of the fews right now.

      I saw Bill Cosby live a few weeks ago here in Knoxville.  He's 72 years old and still hilarious.  He gave two full hours of clean comedy that was actually funny.  He didn't do standup though, he sat down the entire time lol.

      The first time I saw Richard Pryor on Comedy Central I laughed the entire time.  I think he was the pioneer for modern comedy.  You wouldn't think that a comedic routine that was filmed 30+ years ago would still be funny today in 2009, but it is.

      I visited this hub, and watched Kasambwe Mpulamasaka. smile It started out a little slow, but ended up to be a very good laugh, worth checking out. The hub was full of other comedy skits I had never seen and will be sure to visit again.

    I'm sure there are a lot that missed. I love comedy. There is a guy that plays the guitar that has some very funny songs, but, can't think of his name. And, a ventriliquist that has a puppet named Peanut that is pretty funny.

    I used to like Andrew Dice Clay. But, he got old. Tim allen Too. Old jokes, and more old jokes.

    Rosie Odonnel used to be pretty funny.
