In my book there are 2 truly great ones and then everyone else.

Richard Pryor could say more with his expressions than most people
can with words.


And George Carlin was just a genius.

I think Chris Rock is better than Pryor. Carlin is pretty hilarious still though.

I think Chris Rock says Eddie Murphy is the best.
rip Mr Williams
What the hell does he know :4_13_65:

Eddie Murphy as a stand up comedian before my time. He's a comedic actor to me.

I am currently found of Michael McIntyre but I am not sure how long it will stand up until it becomes dated

Dave Chappelle

Bob Newhart

Bert Kreischer

George Carlin in his early days, later in his career he was just angry and bitter.

Bill Cosby

Richard Pryor... saw him live.

Eddie Murphy wishes he had 1/8 the talent Pryor had.

Only famous ones I've ever seen live are Sarah Silverman and Jay Leno.
(And Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain that was like a one man play/stand up act)

Sad that so many died young.... Richard Pryor, George Carlin (71), Bernie Mac, Sam Kinison, Andy Kaufman, Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks...

Sam Kinison was a force of nature.

Patrice O'Neal was damn funny.

Bill Burr is damn good...
