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.   
Thanks, EJPLAYA.  I appreciate the comments.  I do know some of these and will check out Jerry Clower (hope they have some cds at Barnes & Nobel, as this sounds like the kind of stuff I like).  :) tp

Robin Williams
Russell Peters (can't believe no one's mentioned him yet)
Rodney Dangerfield
Chris Rock had a couple of good shows
Jeff Dunham (ventriloquist but has gotten incredibly funnier during his career)
Bobby Collins

Dane Cook is grossly overrated.

Carlin went in the tank after the mid-80's.  Saw him live and started the show off by telling everyone he was going to do old bits.  Royally sucked that night

I also agree on these, slam the king. (don't tell anyone, but I loved George Carlin.  Listening to him was one of my "guilty little pleasures" because for some reason, I could overlook the language and innuendo with him...I do love the good use of language, and I think Carlin was the master of finding humor in ordinary things and language.  His view of things had a great naivete and childish quality, even though the things he was examining might be adult content.

Just looked up a couple short online clips....He is funny!  Everyone wanted to know why I was laughing out loud  (I have been listening to music all day with the headphones, and shushing them).  ;D

LOTS of his stuff on YOU TUBE. He's got that old southern preacher sound to him and is an amazing story teller.

My fiancee' and I went to see him last Saturday.  Absolutely hilarious.  His live show is absolutely worth going to.  Highly recommended.

If humor ever dies, the whole world will die with it, I think.  Long live laughter...it keeps us human and connects us happily to each other.

Dennis Leary, George Carlin, Sarah Silverman, Bill Maher, Ron White are my favorite standup acts.  Also like Chappelle and I've recently gotten way into Jon Stewart.

So many to name I know I will forget some...

No Todd Barry yet??? Really
Jackie Marting
Mitch Hedberg
Rodney Dangerfield
Jim Gaffigan
Rowan Atkinson
Ron White

Never much cared for guys like George Carlin and Bill Mahr who, to me, seemed to try and use the mic as a soapbox and an op-ed opportunity.

Then of course there are old classics that didn't do stand up like the Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Bros.
