Mitch Hedberg. He's alive in my mind and through his recordings. He's so clever and unique.
Quote by PaperStSoapCo
Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

If I hear another comedian as clever and dry as Steven Wright, I can die happy.

While Mitch was an absolutely amazing person and comedian, as far as actual funny goes (In his style) Steven Wright owns him.

The funniest person alive is probably George Carlin, though.
I would've said Lewis Black, too, but since he started doing T.V. stuff so much he's just burnt out. I loved his CDs a year ago, though. God, how I laughed.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.

If Mitch Hedberg were still alive, he'd certainly rank highly, but not the highest.

Carlin would be up there, but as hes aged, he's become more of a philosopher than a comedian. He's still scathingly funny, but I find his older stuff more drop dead hilarious.

Right now, for my money, I'd probably say it's a three way tie between Demetri Martin, Patton Oswalt, and Jeff Dunham.

Steven Wright is definitely up there, but I'd have to say my vote would go to Dave Chappelle.

One of the few celebs who deserve their popularity.

Let's just say he's come a long way from Reggie in Nutty Professor.

I think Dane Cook, his movies suck but his stand up is amazing


If he'd stop doing speed before shows and tell jokes instead of spazzing out and screaming, he'd move higher on my list. Because when he actually tells a joke, he's pretty hysterical.

There's nothing amazing about it. The only reason I like him is because of the the energy he puts into his stand-up. Other than that his jokes aren't anything special.

Also I think Eddie Murphy's stand up in the 80's was very funny.

dang, i can't decide on one. there are too many great comedians that are funny in different ways. I personally like Robin Williams, he can cover so many different things with his voices, sound effects, and well written jokes. he also has that great ability to cut from one joke to another, but link them with some almost random comment, keeping some great jokes going throughout a whole set.

the other nite i had Itunes on and was about to fall asleep, but once it came to his comedy i stayed awake for that next hour just because i couldn't change it and proclaim myself sane.


one comic i particularly love/ hate is Dennis Miller. He's funny as hell, but i hate the way all of his jokes are references to something.

I hate comedians who talk about race too much. It's far too easy.

I don't know why (and this isn't a dig) but I don't particularly find American comedians funny. They just seem to be trying too hard at the crude and rude stuff.

David Cross. Hands down the funniest standup I have ever seen, the man knows no limits but it's smart and well done too.

Agreed. I saw some of his stuff on youtube, it's like a more intelligent Carlos Mencia, but still too much stereotyping
