George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Russell Peters

Hannibal Buress comes to mind atm. I don't like too much stand-up. If it's comedians as in people who are funny, there's too many to name.

#53 Posted by chizzelmonkey (5 posts) -

Robert Schimmel, Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby just to name a few.

Top three: Louis C.K., George Carlin, and Bill Maher.

#56 Edited by Ghostiet (5242 posts) -

Hmm. Patrice O'Neal, Henry Rollins, Louis C.K., early Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Ricky Gervais, George Carlin, Patton Oswalt, Dave Chappelle, Eddie Izzard. In no particular order. Also, the Whose Line? crew, but they're not stand-up.

#57 Posted by gla55jAw (2687 posts) -

Patrice O'neil, Dave Chappelle, Louis CK, Joe Rogan. I love Jim Norton to death on Opie and Anthony, but I don't really like his standup for some reason.

Stewart Lee, George Carlin.

That was brilliant.

#60 Edited by _Zombie_ (1462 posts) -

Chris Titus, Eddie Izzard, Lewis Black and Stephen Lynch.

Lynch is one of the few comedians capable of making me laugh to the point of tears.

Louis CK, Ricky Gervais, Lewis Black

Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Doug Stanhope, and Louis C.K.

There are a lot of good comedians, but these will likely stick with me for a long time. They stand out and in large ways, seem to define a lot of the material newer performers have that I've seen recently.

hot damn! these are the 4 that i had planned on posting milliseconds upon reading the topic. well done, my friend. you saved me the trouble. i also like Eddie Izzard and Ricky Gervais.

I'll also add Joan Rivers. 
#66 Posted by SSValis (1136 posts) -

Louis C.K. and Bill Burr

Bill Hicks is my favorite comedian of all time

#67 Posted by bobcat1794 (279 posts) -

Daniel Tosh is by far my favorite comedian.

#68 Posted by trayntastic (59 posts) -

i like jimmy pardo, doug benson, eddie pepitone and a tonne more.

i just listen to the comedy bang bang, doug loves movies, never not funny and the long shot podcasts and i seem to get introduced too a new great comedian every episode.

Word.

#70 Posted by danimal_furry (1453 posts) -

Brian Regan... by far. Followed by Rodney Carrington.

#71 Posted by thisguyrich (88 posts) -

i read through this entire thread and in my opion mitch hedberg is not getting nearly enough love. Other than him I like jerry seinfeld, Lewis Black, Louis C.K., george carlin, bill hicks, eddy murphy, dave chappelle, harland williams, jeremy hotz...there are more but I cant remember them right now.

Note: it is actually impossible for mitch hedberg to get enough love.

#72 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (533 posts) -

Brian Regan and Emo Phillips.

#73 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Based on the love he was getting here, I started checking out Lewis Black. THE MAN IS A GENIUS!!! Really funny.

#74 Posted by whyareyoucrouchingspock (975 posts) -

I like Stewart Lee.

#75 Posted by TheVeteran13 (1202 posts) -

My favorites are Louis C.K, Bill Burr, Mike Birbiglia and Jimmy Carr and then I can't stand Stewart Lee, Andrew Dice Clay or Lewis Black

#76 Posted by Yummylee (21475 posts) -

Bill Bailey, Dylan Moran, Dara O'Briain, Phil Jupitus... and many more that I'm no doubt forgetting. I'm still open to some Lee Evans at times too, though I don't find him nearly as funny than I did when I was 15.

#77 Posted by Freshbandito (677 posts) -

Bill Bailey's work is consistently great and the roads that Ross Noble travels when he starts a topic are wild and wonderful. Really like early Paul Merton before he became kinda...jaded, seeing him in London recently he just seemed bored by it all.

#78 Edited by InternetCrab (1504 posts) -

George Carlin, Denis Leary and Eddie Murphy.

#79 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6295 posts) -

Fuck yeah Jim Norton!

#80 Posted by Schmollian (260 posts) -

Ricky Gervais and Joe Rogan are the only ones I pay attention to. Joe Rogan for his podcast, which gets many a laugh out of me every time. Also some pretty interesting shit talked about on there.

#82 Posted by Skyrider (343 posts) -

Kevin Hart is my favourite at the moment.

#83 Posted by cnlmullen (900 posts) -

These guys are relatively new, but I've been really digging Key and Peele.

#84 Edited by jadewiz (62 posts) -

Talking strictly stand-up: George Carlin will always be my favorite.

But other than him, still strictly stand-up: Chris Rock, Pablo Francisco, Ricky Gervais, and Dave Chappelle.

EDIT: I forgot Jim Norton and Louis CK and basically anyone who was on Lucky Louie. Great fucking show.

#85 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

David Cross, Louis CK, Ricky Gervais, and Jim Gaffigan right now.

#86 Posted by Spoonman671 (4588 posts) -

I realized I was an old man when I suddenly started finding Rodney Dangerfield hilarious.

#87 Posted by Capt_Ventris (592 posts) -

Frankie Boyle.

#88 Posted by supermonkey122 (815 posts) -

Daniel Tosh. Say what you want.

#89 Posted by Joe_Wildheart (75 posts) -

Peter Kay for me. Though went to see Stephen Merchant live a few months ago and he was awesome, way better than Ricky Gervais stand up.

#90 Posted by Deathmachine117 (377 posts) -

Ricky Gervais,Lee Evans and Peter Kay

#91 Edited by buzz_clik (6962 posts) -

Louis CK and Daniel Kitson.

EDIT: Oh shit, and Colbert.
