    Ellen DeGeneres
    Louis C.K.
    Dave Chappelle - insanely funny imo

    But the best comedian is right here on this very forum! He’s so clever, no one can even understand his jokes. He shall remain unnamed but you will fall on the floor laughing once you spot his iconic humor.

    Hard to argue with that.What about Groucho Marx?

    Tommy Cooper kept working to the end (but it wasn't funny)

    I agree with Dave Chappelle, Groucho Marx and I'll add Mark Twain and Norm MacDonald.

    Mark Twain gave lectures; he did not do stand-up comedy.
    If you include humour in literature, the field grows enormous...
    and Terry Pratchett walks away with the prize.

    Lectures are done standing up.

    Terry Gilliam. (Although his writing is arguably better than his performance.)

    That doesn't make a speaker a comedian. And he wasn't. Amusing, sure - but no George Carlin or even pre-scandal Bill Cosby.

    He was funny and he gave funny lectures. He was a stand up comedian of his day. Sure, the art form wasn't the same as today but so what. Do you just like to argue (rhetorical)?

    You have made everyones day.

    I guess about ten guys who will proudly announce to their friends they have been recognised as the greatest comedian of all time. You know..she is talking about me thing...did you see that she wants me...am I right or calling things wrong.

    How wonderful ..you are wise, well of course you are a woman...the wisest man should sit at the feet of a woman to learn the basics... few do most can not. Maybe not ten maybe more...whatever you do don't name names or your will destroy many worlds.

    So look at the battles thru history..not many woman dieing under the sword...and sadly they are still drawn in..it sucks..it really does...and the males that lived...their accounts of how they ducted and thrusted and killed...it's riveting stuff...I could listen for hours.
    Mind you I have been there..look how I took that jump...only a hero could be so brave...but fortunately I can look back and laugh...girls are just replacement Mommy figures... Did I do good..did I.?

    The male is such a sad expression of life...if you have a dope crop you cut out the males..the various herds of animals few males play any role past a couple of seconds...and fight for a moment...mind you it is a nice moment but best if you actually share it nicely somehow.
    And the delusion...she just wants a baby you fool.
    Good for her accepting an idiot to keep humans going.

    I really like George...more so because what he did was calling to be shot dead after work. How brave was he.?

    But he had so much material to draw upon... I mean taking the Mickey out of mainstream US gives one limitless opportunity ..I loved his religious stuff..
    Proof there is no god because if there was as he would have been stuck down on stage.
    An Irishman ..I bet we are related.
