Top Ten Stand Up Comedians of the 2000s

This is a list of the best stand up comedians in the 00's.

The Top TenXW

1Louis C.K.Louis Székely, known professionally as Louis C.K., is an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, and editor.

Come on! Louis is one of the best stand up comedians ever! He should at least be number one on THIS list! Better than all these guys by a long shot. Kevin Hart is second.

Louis C.K is the everyman of comedy and that's why everyone will relate. His show Louie is like Seinfeld on steroids...a mixture of hilarity, drama and intellect. He is truly the comedian of our time

Comedian of the soul. (I my own words). He's not ashamed to look at his own faults and finds the homur in real life experiences.
And why the hell isn't Eddie izzard up here, the man is one of the most intelligent comedians I know of.

2Kevin HartKevin Darnell Hart is an American actor, comedian, writer, and producer. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Hart began his career by winning several amateur comedy competitions at clubs throughout New England, culminating in his first real break in 2000 when he was cast by Judd Apatow for more.

I love Kevin Hart you gonna learn today

Funniest guy I have ever watched.. Can't wait for let me explain july 2013

Hilarious! When I watch his act I laugh so hard, no noise comes out

I have never seen a funnier comedian than Kevin Hart

3Jimmy CarrJames Anthony Patrick "Jimmy" Carr is an English stand-up comedian, television host and actor, known for his signature laugh, deadpan delivery, dark humour, and use of edgy one-liners.

He is hilarious, loves heckles and uses his crowd and their opinions to spark up huge laughs

He always pulls a joke from where you weren't expecting. Golden!

Better than several on this list, laugh out loud funny.

4Dave ChappelleDavid Khari Webber "Dave" Chappelle is an African American stand-up comedian, screenwriter, producer, and actor.

Best show of all time also best standup with killing them softly. He made the stand up scene what it is today

Best delivery. Knows how to work a crowd

Killing them softly is all I gotta say

5Katt WilliamsMicah Sierra "Katt" Williams is an American stand-up comedian, actor, rapper, singer and voice artist.

Greatest pimp I've seen yet laugh out loud

Nothing funnier than pimp chronicals

6Anthony Jeselnik

Dark humor at its best! His delivery is what makes him awesome.

7Daniel Tosh

Great comedian, his twisted sense of humor will push boundaries most comedians would not think about. Love his material. "I was having sex with this girl... lets say shes 18" never know whats coming out of his mouth next. Has suspense in his comedy, not just stories about his life, some may be but you can't tell, just gotta laugh and move on. can't get to him and he will teach you to take things much less seriously.

17Jamie FoxxEric Marlon Bishop, known professionally by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, singer, songwriter and comedian.
