Who's your favourite comedian

Recommended Posts

1. Bill Cosby- I own several albums of his, I think at least 12 or so. He is the prime example that you don't need to swear all the time to be funny (even though I don't mind it). A legend.

2. Lewis Black- About not needing to swear all the time.... :lol: Still, the crazy-paranoid-schizo get up and his rants are enough to keep me laughing

As for my dislikes...

-Redneck comedians! NO Bill Engvall, NO Jeff Foxworthy and especially NO Larry the Cable Guy (but Ron White is decent)

-the four worst words in the comedy world... Dane Cook Carlos Mencia

John Cleese (especially as Basil Fawlty) and Jackie Gleeson (as Ralph Kramden)

Lisa Lampanelli is really good too, but I can't find my favourite clip on you tube anymore.

Lucille Ball, John Cleese, Ron White (his last thing wasn't very funny, though), Rowan Atkinson (in certain roles - love Blackadder & Thin Blue Line, hate Bean), George Carlin, Jennifer Saunders.

I would also like to say how much I farkin' LOVE Jeeves & Wooster. Both Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are just fantastic on that show, and you can't beat P.G. Wodehouse for source material.

Standup then Billy Connelly.

T.V then John Cleese (Fawlty Towers is the greatest sitcom ever made).

Movies then Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Paul Hogan (pre Crocodile Dundee) was also a very very clever comedian when he had his long running t.v show in the 1970s. Great sketches and a whole slew of funny characters.

Yeah man, Bill Cosby is awesome. Clean and awesome. :thumbsup:

I think Jim Carrey is brilliant, he has always been my favourite. Not just in his big movies but also in his earlier years doing standup and "In Living Color".

Check out some of his old standup on YouTube.

Also like Robin Williams standup routines...swears far too much but try and find the bit where he talks about golf...absolutely amazingly funny. Totally takes the piss outa the Scottish. haha!

Ron White, John Cleese. In the '80s, Eddie Murphy and Whoopie Goldberg had hilarious stand-up :) My kids love Jeff Dunham but I'm not that crazy about him.

Helping a couple of friends move a desk once, looked at each other & thought the same thing.

So 3 votes for Laurel & Hardy.

I'm not exposed enough to all the great comedians out there but I love Chris Rock and Ron White. Enough I've seen them each live and enjoyed their shows very much!
