Top 10 Funniest Stand-up Comedians
« see full list
Eddie Murphy no second thought. All these people don't know what comedy is and have to do insults and putdowns just to make them seem funny, Eddie Murphy is naturally funny. Don't believe me check out some of his programs mentioning some like Beverly Hills Cop 1,2, and 3. He is awesome and has been doing it strong and well for more than 20 years. Will Smith is great as well.
Eddie should be top 3, never mind only scraping into the top 20. Now that is delirious! This man practically reinvented comedy and to me he is the greatest crossover comedian because he actually forged a very successful acting career and most importantly, remains funny. Seriously its a disgrace he is not in the top 3!
You kidding me? ICE CREAM! ICE CREAM! MOM, GIMME SOME MONEY! THE ICE CREAM MAN IS COMING! Delirious is THE funniest ever, not to mention his span of work, all the different characters in SNL and in his movies like Coming to America, Nutty Professor etc. Comedic talent at its best.
I don't understand how Eddie Murphy isn't top 3. He went from being completely raunchy and innapropriate with "Delirious" and "Raw", to cleaning up his act and starring in movies to this day that make a whole family laugh. Personally I like old Eddie, but both styles of comedy get the job done. It's a disgrace he's so low on the list.
Eddie Murphy is the greatest comedian cause he provokes the audience in such way, that no one els does. With his up date subjects for the time of Broadway shows (theatre) he made the viewers think and doubt the world. Also cool funny guy,
Delirious is probably the best stand up of all time in my mind. His combination of impersonations and singing and wit made me feel like I was right there beside him for every story. Also his laugh is priceless.
This whole list has lost credibility
He's one of the best if not the best comedian that has ever been, insane to think otherwise.
Led the way for ALL comedians after him and they know and admit it
The only reason he is not #1 is these dumb asses getting poped out they don't know stand up they all in his movies kids need to learn that actors had jobs before someone was hired to wright there joke
EDDIE MURPHY should be amongst the top3, that was comedy, he took it to a new level and and made profanity his own art form!
You Should really watch raw and delirious to make your judgement
Eddie Murphy is simply the best! There's no one who delivers their jokes better than him. He can talk fast (and I mean really fast), talk slow, sing, has much energy... He is number one!
I don't know if Eddie is better than Pryor or Carlin. But I will tell you that there has never been another comedian bigger than Eddie Murphy. He and Pryor are the greatest I have ever seen.
Best all round comedian. His "Family Cookout" is supreme comedy - a surreal bit full of everything - Body work, vocal work, cultural reference and self humor.
Delirious is the most epic comedy ever laugh out loud he's so safe as well. Some people on this list are a joke they're not even funny... Eddie Murphy though, he's the truth.
whoever made this list has no idea what good comedy is.. Eddie Murphy is the best stand up comic ever.. Richard Prior Influenced him but eddie murphy perfected the act.
Because he is hilarious. He used to actually make people laugh. Great imitating skills, just pure funny without fake overacting, pretentiousness or censure.
Made Delirious and Raw. In my opinion the most famous and quoted stand up gigs of all time.
Shaped the way for comedians such and Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle.
Eddie Murphy is veteran comedian simply one of the most funniest comedian that's been doing it for a while you can't tell me he shouldn't be in the top ten.
Clearly you people don't know your history if you're going to leave one of the greats out of the top 10. Get Daniel Tosh the hell out of there!
Who ever made this list should be takin outside and shot in the head eddie is so funny I pee alittle every time I watch his old stuff
Eddie Murphy should be in the top 5! What is this? He is easily better than Mitch Hedberg, Steve Martin or even Dave Chapelle.
The funniest stand-up comedian PERIOD. All the other comedians even admitted it GLADLY! If you haven't seen "Delirious" or "Raw", you shouldn't vote on this site.
Delirious was the funniest thing I've ever seen. If you wanna see one hilarious joke, look up eddie murphy bahama joke
ONE OF THE FUNNIEST OF ALL TIME NOT YOU YOUNGER PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA.
How is he not in the top ten. Like I can see 11 or 12 but 14, he is as equal, if not better then chris rock.
delirious and raw are the top 2 stand up comedian performences he is #2 right next to richard prior
