Three posts in and two Larry the Cable Guy mentions. Great thread.

I'm being sarcastic, by the way. I thought I'd explain because you people obviously don't know humor.

Greatest stand-up nowadays, in my view, is probably Louis CK. Fantastic comedian and he's got a great show on FX called Louie.

If I had to list my favorite standups...

1. George Carlin
2. Louis CK
3. Jerry Seinfeld
4. Ricky Gervais
5. Eddie Izzard
6. David Cross
7. Chris Rock
8. Patton Oswalt
9. Richard Pryor
10. Robin Williams

Something like that. As far as comedy actors go, I love Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Jason Bateman, Bill Murray... probably others. Zach Galisjugspvzm is funny at times but is kind of settling into the same character in every role. His "Between two Ferns" video series is hilarious though.

Not a single mention of Russell Peters? Now that guy is funny, and I'm not just saying that because I don't want to be the somebody who is gonna get a hurt reeeeeal bad.

Gabriel Iglesias, all the way! He is HILARIOUS! I've even become a better impersonator because of him! I can pretty much say anything in any voice you want. Celebrity? Most likely, I could copy it!

Yeah I know I love his drive thru thing when they screw up his order and he goes back and messes with them with the girl voice. And his OnStar impression is the definition of spot on. He is an incredibly talented comedian and voice artist.

SILENCE!!!! I kill u!!! The slogan of my life!! All of Jeff Dunhams puppets are awesome. Walter is amazing and Peanut and Jose Jalepeno on a Stick make racism hilarious.

STEWART LEE. I knew I'd forgotten someone. Stewart Lee is amazing, best British stand-up out there imo.

Jim Gaffigan anyone? Hot Pocket! Also, if anyone has ever listened to Bill Cosby's older material like "Why is There Air?" It's pretty funny, not what you would think of either when someone say Bill Cosby.

Yeah I saw Bill Cosby and it was really funny. And I just got done checking out Stewart Lee and Jim Garffigan and they are both awesome. Although I'd prefer Gaffigan. And my recommendation that I think everyone should definitely watch is Bill Engvall "Here's your Sign" FUNNIEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN

Anyone heard of Mitch Hedberg? Most of his jokes are these wacky one-liners, but oddly hilarious.
