Remember when everyone was up in arms after she sang the national anthem and then grabbed her crotch and spit? Seems pretty tame nowadays.

Lenny Bruce Report Abuse
Lenny Bruce really started it all. This prototypical controversial comedian was arrested in public for a routine which included him saying the word “c*cks*cker.” His became the test case for what you were and weren’t allowed to say in 1960s America.

JIM JEFFERIES Report Abuse
Possibly the finest controversial comedian currently conquering the world with his own form of smut... taking on gun control in America before any other comedian, talking about atheism and religion with the same swagger and conviction as George Carlin. By far the best comedian out there right now!!! GO WATCH HIM!!

Jon Stewart Report Abuse
Quick to point out when politicians are lying, or maybe just full of it, Jon Stewart has taken on the role of showing the public what politicians are really up to. Add to that the fact that he published a book with a photoshopped version of naked supreme court justices and you have yourself a pretty controversial comedian.

Stephen Colbert Report Abuse
It's easy to criticize the government and politicians when you are sitting in the safety of your television studio, but quite another to confront the President in the extremely public setting of the 2006 White House Correspondent Dinner. Not only is Stephen Colbert hilarious, but he is also extremely courageous.
