Top 10 Funniest Stand-up Comedians

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Jonathan Winters

So all of you idiots think that the greatest improvisational comedian of all time is no better than #105 on your pathetic list of the funniest comedians of all time. Really? You've got to be out of your minds. No way, Jose. The guy you have at #6, the great Robin Williams worshiped Jonathan Winters, and patterned his style of comedy after that of his idol.

Robin said on more than one occasion that he believed Jonathan to be the funniest comedian of all time, and I wholeheartedly agree with him.

If you really think this is where Jonathan belongs on your phony list then

You might as well say that Babe Ruth was the 105th greatest baseball player of all time, or that Muhammad Ali was the 105th greatest boxer of all time.

In other words, your list is a bunch of bull.

He was always on, even coming to the dry cleaners to pick up his shirts. A consummate entertainer.

Okay, yeah, sure, this guy should be at the very top. Shows how short people's memories are when it comes to comedy. Robin Williams would agree.

Something about him just makes me laugh whether he is telling a joke or not.

He is by farr my favourite comedian
She is very endeering and you can't help but in fall in love with her the second she opens her mouth
Definitely should be number 1!

103 Tim Conway

Hilarious! Impersonations from babies to old people. A real master of comedy and a really nice guy.

I just love Tim. His kind of comedy can't be beat. Ever see the dentist skit... Absolutely hilarious

Wonderful physical comedy, great facial stuff, timing absolutely spot-on.

Really funny

104 Johnny Carson Johnny Carson John William "Johnny" Carson was an American television host, comedian, writer, producer, actor, and musician, best known for his 30 years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

The only late night host besides Letterman who was truly funny and had staying power. Leno WAS funny, at first. But it wore thin very quickly because his humor was so mechanical, slick. Carson retained his vulnerability and un-slickness throughout his entire life, which made him super-funny when doing politically oriented satire especially.

I don't feel the present comedians due justice to late night the way Johnny Carson did. He was funny without using profanity!

Often overlooked. Superb stand-up & ad-lib talent. - Billyv

Still very funny. No blue and always ready to skewer every sacred cow..

105 Tron Van Nguyen
106 Gilbert Gottfried Gilbert Gottfried Gilbert Gottfried is an American stand-up comedian, actor and voice artist. His numerous roles in film and television include voicing the parrot Iago in Disney's Aladdin, Digit in the children's cartoon/educational math-based show Cyberchase and Kraang Subprime in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Back in his younger days, even if his voice could break glass, tiny, dark-skinned, dark-haired Gil was a real live wire. Constantly pacing up and down, clutching his forehead, making those tight, angular arm gestures, he didn't try too hard. He was just his weird, smart self.

Gilbert is the Man!

Should be number 1

His version of "The Aristocrats" is hust hysterical.

107 Tom Green Tom Green Michael Thomas "Tom" Green is a Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality.

Tom is the master of comedy. Some people don't get him because he sometimes do "uncomfortable" comedy. I think he loves it as much as his fans do. Why is he not in the top 5? FFS!

108 Dan Cummins

His strange and quirky statements match his voice perfectly. Maybe the funniest comedian alive, he gives you a laugh out loud good time every second he gives a joke or talks about anger towards incompetent people.

Oh my goodness, "Dead Smoothie" is the best. He just needs to come out with more stuff.

I'm thinking about buying some garden gnomes, I don't know. Maybe like a thousand?

One of my favorite comedians who is greatly unappreciated.

109 Cedric The Entertainer

come on now cedirc is one of the best if you dont knock this list off cause this is bull

no 1 in the world ppl, just think twice - sello


My name is cedric

110 Jo Koy

When I watched his Don't Make Him Angry performance, I had top pause the video many times just to breathe. The moments that made me laugh: practically countless. I wonder how long if I could beat his grandmother at Wii Sports... Nah, probably I'd lose by a LONGSHOT!

Saw him in person when he came to Cleveland Ohio... I had to leave the room because I was laughing so hard I could not catch my breath, will go to his show any time he's performing near the Cleveland area. Thank you Jo for a wonderful night

VOTE FOR HIM! PLEASE! Everybody who doesn't vote will get their TING TING ripped off by their grandma. No matter what he is my favorite comedian EVER.

Cannot believe he is not higher - oh my gosh hilarious!

Laughed hard during a recorded show which included one of the most hysterical bits of all time; shovel fighter. Then went to his show expecting to hear familiar material; it was all new and all just as funny. Enjoyed my chat with him after the show...down to earth guy; a must-see.

115 Dave Attell

Dave Attell at 73? Too funny to be this low. If you like comedy, you have to check Dave out, his delivery is so perfect that he can make anything funny. But thankfully, he does jokes and leave audiences in tears, he's so funny.

I love to smoke. I smoke after having sex with a beautiful woman, or, a confused young man... Jack Daniel should come with bail money! Come on people, #90! Really? Wake up! J Foxworthy,J. Dunham, R. May etc. Better than Dave? You all are out of your minds!

Not just an insomniac. Hysterical.

What: One of the best, definitely top 25

116 Eddie Griffin

This guy is one of a kind. Comedy just comes natural to him and he will keep you in stitches from beginning to end. For me he is the best and should be top 3 at least

I can believe he is not on the list. He is known as the Emperor of Comedy and not on this list. And Ellen DeGeneres under the top 20?

Come on people Eddie is up there with the bests.

He's the best. he's noth there because he's not that famous

117 Ray Romano

He's way better than 90 of all of those comedians

He's very unique and a very amusing comedian to listen to. He should be higher on this list than many of the others.

Yes, he should be higher on this list than some I have never heard of. He is such a nice man also. Great comedian.

118 Reginald D Hunter

How is this man so low? Genuinely thought provoking and downright hilarious, easily top 30

119 Craig Ferguson

Has not been around as some of the other famous ones but he at least deserves top 30

He does deserve top 30 he is halarious. I live The Late Late Night Show with Craig Ferguson, it's one of the best talk shows are puns and my favorite. Big up to Craig.

120 Chris Tucker Chris Tucker Christopher "Chris" Tucker is an American actor and stand-up comedian. He is known for playing the role of Smokey in Friday and as Detective James Carter in the Rush Hour film series.

The funniest guy ever. The great thing about Chris Tucker is the fact that he is so consistent, from Friday to Rush Hour. Hen can do it all. I am really shocked that he is so low at this list, it just shows that todays youth is so ignorant
