mel brooks, rodney dangerfield, and dave chappelle are the first names that come to mind.

George Carlin. Lenny Bruce. Sam Kinnison. Billy Connolly. David Cross. Lewis Black. Tom Lehrer (if he counts). Bill Bailey. Eddie Izzard. Recently heard Doug Stanhope, who holds promise.

The only black comedian I've ever liked for more than 20 seconds is Richard Pryor, who is about 40 times funnier than all the others put together.

I agree... that really was fucking terrible.

I did notice that a few of you mentioned Lewis Black... now that guy is fucking hilarious.

Fraser Young
 
This guy is my favourite... fucking awesome comedian from Toronto, Ontario. I prefer the 'smug-bastard' type of comedy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cx-3RphaDpE (Nine minutes)

Check him out... he's awesome :beer:

David Cross. I fucking love stand-up comedy. It doesn't even have to be great, give me some decent stand-up and I'll enjoy it. Bill Hicks, Mitch Hedberg, Dave Chappelle, Dave Attell, Lewis Black... those are just guys who are fresh off the top of my head, nobody you haven't heard of. I'd be more fresh if I had cable right now.

Wolfsherz 2007-05-23 01:22

MITCH HEDBERG
GEORGE CARLIN

And for Benelux-people: Theo Maassen.

johnmansley 2007-05-23 03:06

Ricky Gervais is quite possibly the funniest man I have ever seen.

Other notables include Steve Coogan, Jimmy Carr, Frankie Boyle, Bill Bailey, Ross Noble, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson and Peter Kay.

Channel Four recently compiled a list of the top 100 standups and you can find it here.

Mardraum 2007-05-23 03:13

Oh, Theo Maassen is absolutely fabulous!
- Pablo Fransico -> http://video.google.com/videoplay?d...404369615230006
- Dane Cook -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAG22OmK-r8

MyOwnSavior 2007-05-23 03:36

Mitch Hedburg has always been my favorite. I wish I could hear new material....

Also Lewis Black, David Cross, Daniel Tosh, Patton Oswald and everyone else from The Comedians of Comedy Tour.

Exodus666 2007-05-23 03:50

I have lots of Comedy Central episodes here... The ones I like best are:

Pablo Francisco (the voices!)
Mitch Hedberg (the oneliners!)
Jeremy Hotz
Adam Ferrara (again, great voices)
Nick DiPaulo (not sure about first name)
Bill Burr
Gabriel Iglesias

And of course: Chris Rock.
