Who is your favourite comedian?

Asked by cubozoa (1188 points ) October 10th, 2010

I’m going to see Ross Noble (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVnqJKhM9rA) later this month. He get’s my vote! What do my fellow Flutherians think?

George Carlin, then Louis CK, then Bill Hicks as my top 3.

ross noble is good too, but i dont know if i consider him a comedian, i think he is just a guy they let out on stage from time to time, then put him back in his cell.

Phil Hendrie.

Not a comedian per se, but he has a comedy radio show.

@Seek_Kolinahr: I’m not sure Jamie Oliver counts as a comedian, although you may consider him to be a joke!

Don’t have a favourite, rotates around the unholy trinity >>> Roy “Chubby” Brown, Billy Connolly & Lee Evans @Michael_Huntington Get right outta town! :¬)

Sarah Silverman. My judgment may be clouded by lust.

@Seek_Kolinahr
I think you mean John Oliver.

Seek's avatar

Why the hell did I say Jamie? I must be hungry.

Eddie murphy’s Delerious shaped who I am in very profound ways.. The single greatest act ever.

Bill Cosby. his albums from the 60s and 70’s where amazing

Sam kenison was brilliant.

@uberbatman It was a poor choice of video. But it was Sunday morning, and I didn’t want to post something raunchy. I guess the old Christianity upbringing kicked in. Here is another example based upon nursery rhymes, or this clip from Sesame Street where he discusses necrophilia with Elmo.

An elderly lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat tight so that it would not blow away in the wind.

A gentleman approached her and said, “Pardon me, madam.. I do not intend to be forward but did you know that your dress
is blowing up in this high wind?”

“Yes, I know,” said the lady. “I need both my hands to hold onto this hat.”

“But madam, you must know that your privates are exposed!” said the gentleman in earnest.

The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, “Sir, anything you see down there is 75 years old. My hat, I just bought yesterday!”
