    Who is your favorite comedian? Also who is your least favorite?

    I don't really have a favorite but if I laugh a few times and the guy is original I call it good.

    But the guy I absolutely can't stand is Dane Cook. His stand up has not made me laugh once. He comes off as annoying and not original. But most people that I know like him, I just don't get it I guess, haha.

    Love those two. Isn't Galifinakis that kid that had that ******** show on MTV? Is he a comic now??

    Add Lewis Black to this list, and those are my top 3 modern guys. (last 3-5 years)

    As far as the big names I've seen live... Saw Joe Rogan. absolutely terrible.

    Eddie Griffin was good. Loved Seinfeld, Tim Allen was ehhh. Saw Jim Norton twice and he was great, but pretty crude (to be expected with him). One of the most pleasant surprises was that guy that IIRC won one of the first seasons of Last Comic Standing, John Heffron.

    There's a guy named John Bowman who used to be on Evening at the Improv that was about the funniest guy I've ever seen.

    George Carlin used to crack me up, especially his routines about dogs and cats, and going to the grocery store. I don't like his anti-religion rants, though.

    Bill Cosby's standup routines (storytelling) from the 1970s was great stuff.

    Redskin owner and GM Daniel Snyder is one of my favorite comedians. He makes me laugh a lot.

    Steven Wright
    Gallagher
    George Carlin
    Jay Leno

    Today's comedians are nothing.
    Same with the comic strips of today. I really miss Calvin and Hobbes, Far side, etc. Today the only ones I really like are Ziggy, Lockhorns, and Dilbert.
    Comedy overall has took a turn for the worse.

    I don't get that guy Dana Cook. I have never laughed at anything that guy has said. Def Comedy Jam is absolutely disgusting, barely qualifying as human behavior.

    Gallagher! Is he still around? I loved his show's on cable back in the 80's. Such a funny guy. Mitch Hedberg is funny.

    I'm not up on who's new, now; Jim Norton? Creepy little guy. Dane Cook is just odd.

    I still love the classics, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, etc.

    Calvin 'n Hobbes is classic. I still re-read the comics online.

    Richard Pryor (especially when he did Mudbone routines.)
