George Carlin Report Abuse
His recent passing brought new waves of adulation and analysis to a decades old body of work that is unsurpassed in stand up comedy. Carlin turned cynical curmudgeon-ness into comedy, when he wasn't challenging decency laws and morality by taking his Seven Dirty Words routine all the way to the Supreme Court

Thinking man's comedian. Not the funniest, but undoubtedly the smartest, most observant, and educational comedian ever. His shows open you eyes and make you realize stuff you've never even thought about. He's in a class all by himself, with Louis CK catching up with every special he releases. This guy is so far ahead of the competition he should have all top 10 spots to himself, with the next guy coming in at #11.

The reason some people don't like Carlin is because his "brand" of humor in his later years pretty much read an attack on everyone senses and insecurities. And if you felt insulted by that? Good, he made his mark. He also had the tenacity to say what he wanted when he wanted to say it... Even if the joke was not well rehearsed.

THE KING SO FAR BUT at the LOUIS CK AGE and his routines and what George Carlin actually taught him himself he could surpass him at some point of time in future. These two are the true stand up comedian who dedicate their entire career to it. Others become movie stars etc. A big ego. I love Chris Rock as well. These 3 then whoever comes next it doesn't really matter

For me George was the best because he wasn't just a comedy guy. He watched life and human behaviour and commented our mistakes with humour. Each and everyone of the HBO specials is different but they have something in comment that makes him the best there was and that is, that after each show you watch it changes you a bit inside and you don't even regret being changed.

This guy is the new Carlin. Without any argument, this guy is the best in the business today. He might even surpass Carlin one day if he keeps releasing these specials like he has been, although that's going to be hard to top a GOAT like Carlin.

Richard Pryor Report Abuse
The first and perhaps only "Rockstar" comedian, Pryor's populairty in the 80s rivaled any athlete, actor or politician. Best known for his dead on impersonations, legendary story telling and uncomfortable honesty Pryor simply changed the game forever and showed everyone that the funniest guy in the room could also be the coolest.

I have been a fan of stand up from the time there were merely a handful of comics making a living at it. (David Brenner, Robert Klein, Johnny Dark) Two of the best stand up experiences I have ever had were Richard Pryor's Wanted, and Live on the Sunset Strip. Although I believe Lenny Bruce (my 2nd all time Fave) was the real trail blazer, Pryor, I believe, turned it into an art form. His humor came from a more honest place than where other stand ups would care to reveal about themselves. He said everything warts and all, and people could relate to his gritty outlook the way that others related to Bill Cosby's sentimental reflections. To me it's Pryor, Bruce, Hicks are the Holy Trinity of stand up, with nods to Louis CK, Patton Oswalt, of course Carlin, and I am becoming more and more fond of Bill Burr. Chris Rock, Bill Cosby are in the conversation... but I stand by my main three. (oops, let us not forget Sam Kinison, with Maria Bamford as my fave female)

This guy's jokes are just plain stupid to me. I don't see what the hype is about. He's far from bad but doesn't crack the top 3 imo. Carlin, Louis CK, Hicks are clear top 3 simply because they were funny and smart, this guy just doesn't have the same level of thinking. Still in the top 5 though, and better than most trash coming out today, ie Kevin Hart or Dane Cook.

Bill Hicks Report Abuse
Underrated and obscure thanks in large part to his early death at 34 from pancreatic cancer, Hicks has attained cult status in the years following his passing. With a reputation as an "Outlaw Comic" Hicks hilarious take on drugs, politics and humanity straddles the line between base humor and high satire. Uber-intelligent, cynical and biting Hicks raised stand up comedy to an art form and showed the world just how powerful the genre could be at delivering a social message.

Love Hicks. I always referred to him as "comedy with a conscience" His stand up was like a punch to the face to get the audience to WAKE UP to the state of where we were, as a civilization, and where we are headed. Angry with an undertone of hippy optimism. He is the one stand up I wish were alive over the last 20 years to hear his take on the state of society and government.
Added 3 months ago by guest, 0 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
His social and political satires were a watershed moment in the annals of American comedy. It's true that his dark poetic style (covered in numerous colorful profanities) was not to the liking of "decent" audiences, but he broke the barrier of social norm expected, namely mediocrity and cliche which were prevalent during 80's and 90's on hindsight! Definitely, he was the most important social critic of his time who happened to be damn good at stand-up comedy! If other great comedians' rants and tirades (such as George Carlin) were tickling your funny bones and opening your mind, Bill Hick's not only tickled and opened it but it also bit into our collective subconscious to draw out greater realization (if not enlightenment) of relevant topics that haunt the society today!

I see Bill Hicks on these lists all the time and I just don't get it. I've watched all his clips on Youtube and he's made me laugh a couple of times maybe but mostly he's just angry and obvious in his humor. An example - the joke about the Christians who approach him after a show and say "buddy I don't like what you said about Christians in there" Bill says, "well then forgive me" Gets a huge laugh and applause from the audience. I don't get the big response. If you're looking for great comedic beatdowns on religious people look at Bill Maher, David Cross, Ricky Gervais etc - then go back and look at Hicks. You'll see the difference.

In potential the best comedian i have seen. its all about the message with Bill and some jokes carry a long way, like into the next millenium he failed to be a part of... Utherly well informed and brillant in building up jokes, that will stay with you long after the laughing part is done

Bill Hicks should be way higher on this list. Hicks is a legend and Dennis Leary stole his entire act from Bill Hicks. Bill Hicks' comedy was so true and intelligent that nobody wanted to hear it. So Leary stole his jokes and reappropriated them for his own act. Move Hicks to the top of the list. RIP Bill Hicks

When I listened to this guys stuff I thought "yeah that's clever" after twenty minutes however I was thinking "I get where you're going with this enough already" Carlin, Pryor, Louis CK are and will always be great because there's a truth to their material.

Chris Rock Report Abuse
Yes, he's known predominantly for racial humor but black or white, young or old - funny is funny and Chris Rock is one of the funniest human beings on the planet. Perhaps the greatest testament to his skill is how mainstream he's become: despite talking about controversial topics such as race and sex and working very "Blue" he's loved by inner city minorities, white suburban dads, and elderly WWII vets.

Oh. A sign of a great comedian is someone who takes the world into his own hands and makes it his own. Jerry Seinfeld is huge in the States. But only in the States. Everywhere else in the world, nobody can grasp his concept of dull and pointless humour. I agree Gervais should be way up there ahead of Seinfeld. Although I do have great respect for the success and accomplishments Seinfeld has achieved. And I believe Friends was the most successful sitcom of all time. I know. Who the hell judges these things?

Lenny Bruce Report Abuse
More people are probably familiar with Lenny's legal troubles and drug use than his actual comedy act, and I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult to his prodigious personality. Yes, Bruce was hilarious and revolutionary and boundary breaking - but his most important legacy are the struggles he faced to getting to stand on stage and say what he felt. Every single comedian today who curses or uses sex or race in their acts owes Bruce everything.

Listen to Live at Berkley, or Live at Carnegie Hall and ask yourself , "why isn't he wayyyyyyyyyy higher on this list?" Sure the material may be dated, or even tame by today's standards, but you climb into a time machine, go back to the time he was saying these things, compare it to the material spoken by others, the power of the religious and political sensibilities, then come back and ask yourself, "how important is he to this list?" He spent himself poor to defend his right to say what he wants, in accordance to their Constitution. So smart was Bruce, he was practically an expert on Constitutional Law, or First Amendment Law by the time he died. Listen to how smart and well crafted the material sounds.

Comedy for kindergarten kids. His jokes are just lame. Delivery is good, not complaining about that. But the actual material isn't funny at all. He shouldn't even be in the top 50, let alone top 10. The problem is the genre is dying, so the industry is diluted. This guys is the perfect example, not funny but people put him in top 20 all time because modern kids don't even know who HIcks or Stanhope are.

Katt Williams Report Abuse

Genius to come out of LA underground, completely capsized Black, Def-Jam comedy style. Became the top grossing comedian in North America without ever being the center piece of a movie or tv show. Never was even a regular at a mainstream comedy club. As important to Black comedy as Robin Harris! All-around Bad Mofo!

I liked his act, for being refreshingly simple, no difficult politics, no racial slurs, no obscenity. He is simple, observes the simple things in life, and is very good at that. not a comic who walks the edge, but funny in his own right. He's in my top 20 comics, but not near the top. I think he is quite well ranked here, maybe a spot or two higher. #15 should be appropriate.

The most underrated comedian of all time. When Comedy Central makes a documentary about you and includes some of the biggest comedians in the world (Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart, Daniel Tosh, to name a few) saying nothing but praise towards you, you know you've got some serious talent.

Steve Martin was my introduction to stand up comedy when I was a kid. Some guy played it for us when I was 12 or so and I never laughed so hard in my life. I think it warped my mind just a little bit. I was never the same. It was absurd and fantastic. He stopped doing comedy after only 4-5 years and never did stand up again. His movies went on but he was never as funny in movies.

Has one of the best, longest running comedy shows T.V. has ever seen and it doesn't look like he will be off air any time soon. His comedic satire of our political and national media is both penetrating and enlightening, showing us both the hilarity and seriousness of current events in America. Jon Stewart uses his comedy as an introspective way of viewing and critiqueing America, its politicians, and the filtering of news media. Not only funny as balls but very intelligent humor. The Daily Show is easily the best show on Comedy Central

Dave Attel is hands down the funnest comic I have ever seen. His wit and intelligence is on the same level as the greats. Its his bar humor that turns people off, but his comedy is pure brilliance. The comment above is severely lame. The person who wrote it obviously is either Deaf or a complete idiot. Im going with idiot

At first I loved him, then despised him, now I feel bad for him. Louis CK has said he didn't believe Dane intended to steal anything, two of their jokes just happened to end up similar. He gets laughter out of me, not as much as Louis but hey, he's all right.

Nearly everyone here is just regurgitating crap they've heard, when most of you actually loved Dane Cook when he first hit the media. He may have done three similar jokes. But the fact is that a lot of comedy is borrowed and the TRUTH is that he got too big and now everyone wants to destroy him. You heavy breathing, media humping, mindless bandwagon riders.
