Top 10 Funniest Stand-up Comedians
The Contenders: Page 8
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!V 3 Comments
Groucho Marx with and without his brothers was the fastest ad lib artist of all time, and so famous as a comedian that the networks would allow him to walk onto any show in production at any time during the age of live T.V.. Every name on this list will admit that he is to American Comedy second only to Mark Twain and a primary influence for their careers and personal lives. If he isn't number 1, the list is faulty.
No way he should be down here. Mass amnesia rules these "top 10" or "top 100" things!
Everyone wants to be Groucho at last one time in life.
Groucho was pretty damned funny for a JewV 2 Comments
This "observational comedian" is wonderful, humoristic and sarcastic. He's in league with the big guy if only people would see it!
"Do you know who I like? No, you don't. So I'm gonna tell you. Because if you did know who I like, that would have been weird " it means you're in my head. "
"Sometimes you should say the right thing. But the wrong thing is funnier... "
"As my mother always says, If you have to swear to get laughs, then you're obviously a ct. "
This man is one of the best I have ever seen.Just watch "Pedantic and Whimsical".You will know what I mean!
Very Underrated. Has come a long way from Last Comic Standing (He did win, by the way)
He is the funniest person I have ever seen.
Best French-canadian stand-up comedian.
Best of all time in French
I think he's the funniest. Absolutely loved his recent shows on the BBC. Even if he doesn't speak, his face is funny enough to laugh at.
Some must take great offense to his crude attitude and Muslim jokes
Funny asian man, who nobody knows about
has they best impressions HANDS DOWN
freakkkkin hilarious asian boy
"what's for dinner mom? " "Lava! " "what about desert? " "Fire! " hahaah.
I went through this whole list... Isn't Louie on here?! I know he was HUGE in his home state, Minnesota, then moved out to Las Vegas and is a fixture there. But he was on the Tonight Show enough times and hosted Family Feud for awhile and should be well known enough. HILARIOUS standup comic.
My feeling is Louie Anderson, is the most funny comic, that ever lived. I love louie and want to always be on his side. He's the best now and forever.
Much love to lou, and many prayers.
Oh, there you are, Louie! I just added you to the end of this list because I missed this listing. Not enough people see Louie to know how great he is. Like many, he got his gig in Vegas and is overlooked by the industry via media.V 1 Comment
He needs to be at least in the top 10. This man is extremely talented and has balls to say some of the truths he days about race and other aspects in our society. This man was the protegee of the great Richard Pryor, but he often gets overshadowed. Watch any of his stand up routines and you will understand how funny he truly is
This man is the gr888est of all times... Will definitely have you crying! Love you Paul Mooney... XoxoV 2 Comments
Very funny guy, especially with his casio!
he is one of the best camp comedianes there is and one of the best od British humourV 1 Comment
Started the late night T.V.
He authored more than 54 books, composed more than 7900 original songs. He took cameras into the streets when Dave Letterman was still in grade school and read funny headlines before little Jay Leno could read. He was the most creative, talented mind of his generation or yours. YouTube his show when Elvis sang "Hounddog" to a hounddog.
The list has just lost ALL credibility. A list of comedians that doesn't list Bob is, horribly ironic, laughable.
Oh Bob. He can deliver a line. Still hear his skits on satellite radio 98
