I have many favorites! A few include, but are not limited to good old George Carlin, the beautiful Eddie Izzard, and I really like Bill Hicks.
Mitch Hedberg! (rest his soul)
i also like Ben Stiller.
A british comedian by the name of lee mack is side splittingly funny to me!
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
Rodney Carrington followed by Jerry Seinfield. Never really got into George Carlin or Richard Pryor.
Dane Cook, Frank Caliendo are just the first two of my many favorites.
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.
Sam Kinison is my favorite he never failed to make me laugh.
I think Eddie Izzard is the funniest guy out there right now.
Jim Carrey, Robin Williams and Jeff Dunham the Ventriloquist
John Cleese & Monty Python's Flying Circus
And the Mayor of BumbleTown
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.
here are my top ten favorite comedians, along with clips of each one, listed on my hub:

Brian Regan - no question. YouTube his Improv performance. Start with the UPS vid.
George Carlin is the master!
I also enjoy Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, and Chris Rock.
My two long time favourite comedians are Jerry Lewis and Bob Hope you just can't go by the. More recently Jim Carey, Chevy Chaise Beautybabe
Dane Cook has a really funny joke, enjoy!
Best comedy show ever - Only Fools and Horses with David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst.
I've been watching a lot of Bill Hicks again, really miss him. Brilliant satirist and observationist not afraid to speak his mind
Eddie Izzard for me. And currently some Portuguese guy. I can only understand about 25% of what he says but he still makes me laugh
Chris Rock, Jim Gaffigan, Mitch Hedberg, George Wallace, Lisa Lampanelli, DeRay Davis, and Nick Dipaolo to name a few.
Here is a list of my favorites.
Scott Thomson (I love Buddy Cole!)
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.

Who is your favorite stand-up comic?Comedy often gets overlooked at times save for its purest form on the stand-up stage. Spanning a long history, who do you see as the greatest stand-up comic of all time?
by Sherlock221b 10 years ago
Some people seem to have funny bones, and naturally find themselves working in the comedy entertainment business. At the moment, I am discovering the comedy genius of Bea Arthur, who had the ability to say more with one look, than many comedians do with even the most fabulous scripts.Who...
