187 posts about comedians and nobody's mentioned how great Don Rickles is? Heathens.

I vote for Drew Curtis. The spilled beer on the server line is getting pretty old.

David Cross, Jon Stewart and Lewis Black are gods amoung men.

Todd Barry (If that's his right name) is pretty damn funny as well.

Bizzare trivia: I just realized this but Lewis Black has a very early scene as a doctor in the movie Jacob's Ladder.
2003-07-20 12:42:51 AM  
kurt_roges, Lewis Black's politically spun commentary is on spot and hilarious because it's 90% true.
2003-07-20 12:50:06 AM  
My points:

All of the late-night TV hosts (save Jon Stewart) have become lame as a result of having been broadcasting for so long. Most of them weren't lame to begin with. Conan O'Brien wrote some of the funniest episodes of The Simpsons, for God's sake.

I agree, political humor does not work 95% of the time. Most comedians can't stop their opinions from overshadowing their humor. The Daily Show has political humor perfected, but Miller and Maher become obnoxious long ago as a result of being overly opinionated.

Dave Attell is hysterical. Watch his Comedy Central Presents special and see what I mean. He's in top form there.

Dane Cook is funny, but you can only use that bone-chilling scream so many times before my nerves require me to change the channel.

Lewis Black is good at what he does: Anger. He's going to have a heart attack on stage someday.

Janeane Garofalo needs to stick with stand-up and stay out of making movies. She's not a good actress. I saw her live once and she tore the place up. It was hysterical.

Denis Leary was in top form during his "No Cure For Cancer" special. It was made almost ten years ago, but it's still hilarious. He's mellowed out a bit too much lately.

andy kaufmann was not a "comedian" - he was a friggin' genius and he fcuked with poeples heads. on purpose. go rent some of his tapes if you haven't yet - pretty twisted (and beautiful) stuff...
2003-07-20 12:59:13 AM  
I think Tony Clifton is the world's worst comedian, without a doubt. I can't believe he found work.
The way he treated the late, great Andy Kaufman was a travesty, simply a travesty.

Above, Clifton making a "joke" of strangling his protege, Any Kaufman.Clifton also treated his audience with disrespect time and again.

He had kids too. Like Murphy.
2003-07-20 01:06:37 AM  
Worst ever, no particular order:
Carrot Top
Andy Kaufmann
Dave Chapelle
Margaret Cho
Andy Kaufmann (yes, again...really sucked terribly)
Rita Rudner
2003-07-20 01:07:29 AM  
Denis Leary is an unoriginal fark....he even mocked Bill Hicks death from pancreatic cancer in the name of his album "no cure for cancer". I used to think he was funny, then I grew up. fark Leary.

2003-07-20 01:07:40 AM  
Jeff Foxworthy = "If might be a redneck."
Jerry Seinfeld = "Didja ever notice...?"
Dennis Miller = "I don't wanna go on a rant here, but blah blah blah LIBERALS blah blah blah MY HEAD'S UP MY ASS blah blah blah IN THE GOP'S POCKET..."
Adam Sandler = "Put on your yarmulke, it's time for Chanukah..."
Tim Allen = "(Grunt)(Grunt)(Grunt)(Grunt)"
2003-07-20 01:09:51 AM  
By the way, I love Seinfeld and his show. Truly original and classic.
2003-07-20 01:10:51 AM  
Its completely true about Mike Bullard, I honestly can't belive that he's still on the air. He just isn't funny at all. Why give those canadian tire jumper cables to celeb guests? Is it Is it a waste of time/money...yes.
Mike:"...and what's with Jean Cretien's(insert problem here)?"
No Mike the real question is whats with your repeated jokes? Everytime I see his show on he says the same things. Hmmm they weren't funny yesterday...let's try them again today, eh Mike.
2003-07-20 01:24:00 AM  
Lewis Black is amazing. "When I turn around, there can't possibly be a Starbucks behind me."
2003-07-20 01:24:58 AM  
Squidward is overated, Maggie simpson and of course Moe Sleazak. I liked Bugs Bunny until he got so full of himself.
2003-07-20 01:26:13 AM  
Someone earlier said Red Skelton wasn't funny. Screw you. His training was rooted in vaudeville, and he wasone of the best character and physical masters going. Maybe it isn't 'funny' in the synical or ironic sense, but Skelton's comedy is quite funny in a pure and direct way. Watch closer next time.
2003-07-20 01:26:55 AM  
GAH cynical
2003-07-20 01:36:00 AM  
Bernie Mac is only funny while your stoned. sometimes it sounds like he's speaking Chinese or something. try it, it's great.
2003-07-20 02:02:16 AM  
They killed cedrick. Thank god. I sat through kings of comedy and he was the only unfunny person in that film. God, I hated him.
2003-07-20 02:29:29 AM  
Judging Bob Saget on Full House is retarded. He's heard "Rumors" that his real stand-up is dark but can't believe it?


Two Words : Half-Baked

"Marijuana's not a drug. I've sucked dick for coke, have you ever sucked dick for marijuana?"
2003-07-20 02:41:23 AM  
the only thing funny about carrot top is how he looks like the wendy's hamburger girl when he pins his hair back.

neil hamburger is so incredibly unfunny that he's actually somewhat amusing. but that's his whole schtick.

i can't believe no one has mentioned doug stanhope on their 'best' list. i mean, he's no bill hicks or anything, but he's one of the funniest and most observant comics in the country today.

Margaret Cho does a lot more than "I'm Asian" jokes. She does "I'm such a slut" jokes, too.

Which makes her suck about a million times more
2003-07-20 02:48:06 AM  
Saget ain't that bad.

Seriously, whoever wrote this never saw his stand-up. He/she even admits that.

I just watched the Jerry Seinfeld movie/documentary "Comedian". Very, very cool. You get to see Jerry try to build himself back up again...not because he had to, but because he wants to start anew. You also get to see a younger antithesis of Jerry, some self-important prick stand-up named Orny Adams. There's a scene in "Comedian" where Seinfeld is sitting backstage with Richard Klein, Kevin Nealon, and Chris Rock just talking like anyone talking with their friends. Awesome.

If you like stand-up, rent or buy "Comedian".
2003-07-20 02:50:50 AM  
And I got drunk with Lewis Black last fall, so I feel cool.
2003-07-20 02:54:12 AM  
J'aime Monsiour Jerry Lewis. Il est un grand derriere.
2003-07-20 02:58:59 AM  
so funny things are only meant to be enjoyed at a certain rate, or by a certain number of people? really need to do something about this farking problem.
2003-07-20 03:10:27 AM  
Just wanna add that Dennis Miller's shtick has gotten old, and stand-up isn't his particular forte...but there was one he was excellent at. I maintain was the best weekend update anchor ever!
I agree with many who say Letterman's show was funny in the 80's, as was Leno in those days. Both are not very funny now. Conan's good, but give me John Stewart, he kicks all their asses! How does that ass Kilborn have a network show and not Stewart; actually maybe that's for the best, Politically Incorrect got horribly unfunny when it moved to ABC.

oh, and nobody mentioned Joe Piscopo?! He was horribly unfunny.
2003-07-20 03:40:57 AM  
I listen to Lewis Black every mornign at work to get myself motivated to deal with corporate hell.
2003-07-20 03:53:10 AM  
Props too all of you that metion Dane Cook on your "Good list"

He is the best thing since sliced bread and sliced bread two electric bogaloo.
2003-07-20 04:05:44 AM  
After hearing about Bill Hicks, I think I'd better listen to his stuff out, and then re-evalutate my opinion of Leary.
Who knew? Well, besides everybody who mentioned him. :-)
2003-07-20 04:39:31 AM  
The three that come to mind most immediately for me are Judy Tenuta, Howie Mandel, and Joy Behar.
2003-07-20 04:45:31 AM  
DAT PHAN!!!!! *if anyone knows who I'm talking about, kudos*
2003-07-20 04:51:29 AM  
This list is bogus from the start. Ernest P. Worrell is a character ... not a comedian! And any list of awful comedians without Yahoo Serious is obviously flawed.
2003-07-20 04:54:40 AM  
Gallagher is an American hero damnit.

And Andrew Dice Clay is much much worse than the others above him.

Emo not on the list? That list is full of shiat.
2003-07-20 05:26:56 AM  
So I guess its safe to say

Mine, so vote!! Oh, wait...
2003-07-20 06:18:48 AM  

No votes for THIS dipshiat?
2003-07-20 06:40:36 AM  
Sam Kinneson was god. Listen to his bit about Jesus being married and try not to laugh. Hell, I'm religious and I crack up at this bit. I too will have to listen to some Hicks and re-evaluate Leary. But the whole Busket scene in Suicide Kings kills me everytime. And Martin Lawrence sucks teh ass. 'It's funny, 'cause I'm black!' And I had to sit through a Cho DVD. She is pretty awful.
2003-07-20 07:33:17 AM  
I'm convinced LENO is a closet homosexual. The guy can't go 2 min without making some derogatory comment about being gay. Oh, and he's as unfunny as a punch in the face.
2003-07-20 08:03:07 AM  
How could the Dice-Man be on this list??? HOW!!!!

[image from too old to be available]
2003-07-20 08:19:08 AM  
Does anyone REALLY wanna hear this moo-cow talk about how she's such a slut?

Bessame peace, I feel the same way.

MetaPhyzix, you should meet my pal Otto's_Jacket, a resident of Aurora like minded individual.
