Top 10 Funniest Stand-up Comedians

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Donald Glover Donald Glover

Donald's ability to entertain the audience with his life stories as a child who grew up with foster kids is absolutely astounding. The way he "Keeps things real" gives a down to Earth sensation. If you watched the show he stars in, Community, you already know he does an amazing job, just wait until you see his stand-up. Warning, stand-up is not as family friendly as the show Community.

I'd much rather have AIDS than a baby. They're not that different at all. They're both expensive, you have them for the rest of your life, they're constant reminders of the mistakes you've made and once you have them, you pretty much can only date other people who have them.

Watch this guys one hour standup. They don't give one hour stand up to just anybody. Proves my point that this guy is hilarious and is definitely not #85 on the list.

Remember when he said his brother said he was going to take a lee in his mouth, then took a dump in a display home depot toilet LOL! - Jermaineb12

122 Jimmy Fallon Jimmy Fallon James Thomas "Jimmy" Fallon is an American comedian, television host, actor, singer, writer, and producer.

I love him he's one of the best comedians and isn't crude or vulgar. You can be funny and clean you shouldn't have to be nasty to be funny. I love comedy like that you can hardly find that now days. Another one like Jimmy is Bill Cosby.

My dad has told me I am related to him, - Nateawesomeness

His comedic gifts set. Him apart his impressions of people and singers
Who else does this? More than any other host you can tell how much fun he is having as are his guests

He makes my penis jiggle.

123 Jay Leno Jay Leno

Saw Jay Leno doing standup 3 times and it's always hilarious. He doesn't need to cuss or use bad words to be funny. I enjoyed going to see Jay Leno perform every time.

2 hours of material with drop dead laughs every 7 seconds without 1 d*** joke.

124 W. C. Fields

Amusing, bright, brilliant, campy, crazy, diverting, droll, entertaining, epigrammatic, facetious, fanciful, humorous, ingenious, intelligent, jocose, jocular, keen, lively, original, penetrating, piercing, piquant, quick-witted, ridiculous, scintillating, waggish, whimsical, and downright funny

Giving up drinking is easy... I've done it a thousand times!

Never join a club that would accept you as a member.

His sarcastic attitude was copied by many

125 Micky Flanagan

Funniest guy of the moment. True life story's to laugh at.

126 David Letterman David Letterman David Michael Letterman is an American former television and radio host, comedian, writer, producer, and actor.
127 Adam Hills

His stories are hilarious.

Utterly side splitting.

128 Jason Manford Jason Manford
129 Kevin James

Sweat the Small Stuff - watch it! Hilariousness. Material, facial expressions, delivery... all of it is on point.

Absolutely love Kevin James and his humor. King of Queens was laughing at real life. He should have received the Emmy's and CBS let him down. I watch repeats every day to laugh.

Just saw Kevin at the Mirage in Vegas. Good show without being vulgar. Great interaction with the audience. Especially with a guy from Liverpool.

130 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

132 Lenny Henry Lenny Henry Sir Lenworth George Henry, known as Lenny Henry, is a British stand-up comedian, actor, blues singer, writer, and television presenter, best known for co-founding charity Comic Relief and presenting various television programmes, including The Magicians for BBC One.

Great energy, and great physical presence. Brings such indignation and outrage, it's something we all can connect with.

133 George Burns

Nothing more difficult than being a straight man. He was the BEST.

134 Henny Youngman

This man gifted the world with perfect one liners. Everyone on this list truly owes a debt to Youngman. Please mitigate the sadness in this universe by looking up some of his stuff. He may have been the first with Airline jokes. We've all heard those... Am I right? Yep.

One joke of so, so many; "A doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his bill, so he gave him another six months. "

If you don't vote for Youngman, you're simply voting on a whim, or you should vote for Lenny Bruce or Woody Allen.

135 Sugar Sammy

Are you serious? This guy has to be in the top 10 or at least top 20. He goes sold out where ever he goes in the world and He can do shows in 4 languages... English, French, Hindi and Punjabi... He is the successor to Russel Peters in Canada, and let me tell you he is a bit more funny than the Mighty Russel...

136 Rich Hall Rich Hall
137 Jack Dee Jack Dee James Andrew Innes "Jack" Dee is an English stand-up comedian, actor and writer known for his sarcasm and deadpan humour.

The worlds best stand up comedian

139 Jimmy Kimmel

He's awesome one of the most famous in Hollywood

140 Andy Kaufman Andy Kaufman

The most original, talented, intelligent, brave pioneer to ever touch comedy. If you've never heard of Andy Kaufman then it's obvious you are new to comedy.

How on earth is Andy Kaufman so low on this list? He was a true original.

If you believe we put a man on the moon...

He should be number one! He was so amazing!
