Who are the funniest comedians you have ever paid money to go see? here are my 5. 1. Bill Cosby, Marriott Center. My jaws and ribs hurt for hours afterwards. 2. Sam Kinison, Vegas Improv. I nearly had an accident. He was a genius. 3. Carlos Mencia, Casino Del Sol. A lot of peole hate him. I had a ball. 4. Jim Carrey, Vegas Improv. He did a thing with a lady's drink that had me in tears. I wasn't there to see him, because I didn't know who he was at the time, but he stole the night. 5. Michael Winslow, Laffs Comedy Cafe. He's the guy who did the sound effects for the Police Story movies. Very enjoyable show.
