Female, too.   Going back, way back, Gracie Allen Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett.  Early days of her career, Rosanne Barr, now  Ellen Degeneris.   Guess you can tell I don't much care for the hard core stuff, more the naive, funny stuff (although Rosanne straddled the line).  Robin Williams is another funny man (who stands with one foot planted firmly on each side of the line).

I love Eddie Murphy's Delirious, it may be the funniest recording of all time, but he hasn't come close to it again (Raw fell pretty short imo)

Mitch Hedberg was great and from the recordings I've heard pretty consistent

Steven Wright, he's the man

I don't know if it's the shock value of Danny Tanner dropping naughty words, but Bob Saget is on the list as well

But all time, favorite comedian (standup) has to be Chris Rock

And Jim Gaffigan's Hot Pockets skit is amazing

My two favorite comedians are: 

1.  American Redneck, Jeff Foxworthy
2.  Russian Redneck, Yakov Smirnoff

but....Edgar and his elephant jokes comes in a very close third!

Well I do my best
even when Elephants are on vacations.

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
Tosh is number one easy man, come on!

I do like Birbigs though. Jim Gaffigan was funny, now...meh. Kind of over exposed if you listen/watch a lot of stuff.

Mitch Hedberg is still the number one though.

I loved Cantinflas.  He used to be a semi-regular on the Ed Sullivan Show.  Afraid I don't know chespirito...but I haven't know a lot of the comedians mentioned on this thread.  I must have been very sheltered, or, more  probably, just my totally self involved, unobservant of anything that does not directly concern ME persona...if I ever move back to those long dark lonely nights in New England, I have a lot of catching up to do and a lot of stuff to research in my down time!  lol

The Late and Great Jerry Clower. If you haven't heard anything from him go look him up. Clean comedy at its finest.
George Lopez is unbelievably funny.
Bernie Mac killed me no matter what he was saying.
Chapelle is incredible.
Tommy Savitt is hilarious.
Larry the Cable guy is a guilty pleasure.
Rowan Atkinson could be the funniest overall on the planet.

A few other very honorable mentions : Tim Allen, Billy Crystal, Andy Dick, Redd Foxx.
