1.Richard Pryor Report Abuse
Is the best Comedian of all time for several reasons and Im going to explain them first reason why he should be number one is because his influence on other comedians many of the best comedians look up to him and are influence by him to do comedy .Another reason he is number 2 he open alot of doors to Black Comedians and if was not for him there would be no Eddie Murphy,Chris Rock,Dave Chappelle and Martin Lawrence and etc.Also what make Richard Pryor the best he can joke about anything he made jokes about the good times and the bad times no matter how bad they were he can make a joke about them he even joked about the time he caught on fire there was nothing to sad to joke about to him and his impersonation were hilarious he were one the first Black Comedians to make jokes about white people at that time and white people laughed at the jokes he made about them white people liked his jokes Black people liked his jokes he was very commercially successfu and his stories were really funnyl. And Not only he was an amazing Comedian he also was a great actor Richard Pryor was a very talented man thats why he is number one .

9.Bill Cosby Report Abuse
Bil Cosby is the funniest clean comedian of all time .What makes him number nine on the list is because most real funny comedians curse and talk dirty and bring up controversy Bill Cosby was clean as can be people of all ages and all race could listen to Bill Cosby .His was very original he never really brought up race subjects in his comedy routines like most Black comedians did at that time he told funny stories on stage .And til this day no comedians can tell stories like him .And his success from the cosby show to fat albert is legendary .

6.Chris Rock Report Abuse
Chris Rock is number six on the list because of views on things he is never afraid to speak his mind no matter no bad the topic sounds and the funny thing about Chris Rock is that you can learn and laugh while watching him.He'll talk about topics that will make you laugh and at end of the day thinking about it you will know how true the joke is Chris Rock is real and controversial and that is what makes him one of the best comedians ever .
