    Demetri Martin, Jeff Dunham, Brian Regan, Daniel Tosh, Jeremy Hotz, Nick Swardson... I know I am forgetting some.

    Jeremy Hotz may get on some people's nerves, but he cracks me up.

    Nick Griffin is my current fave.
    Sam Kinison is one of my all-time favorites.
    Tim Wilson is funny in interviews but not a huge fan of his stand up.

    Jeff Dunham is the funniest guy I have seen in a long time. Im not a huge fan of standup but Dunham can bring me to tears.

    Demetri Martin.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Without a doubt, Don Rickles is my favorite. I do enjoy Jim Gaffigan though. But Rickles has been my favorite since I was a kid and I saw him a few years ago at The Taft in Cincinnati and was laughing till I cried the whole evening. Gotta love Mr. Warmth.

    I don't understand the appeal of Demetri Martin. I just don't enjoy his no-edge approach.

    My current favorites are Patton Oswalt, Dave Attell, David Cross, Nick Swardson, and Sara Silverman.

    I agree. I saw him at Newport on Levee four years ago and it was a blast. I hope he comes back again. I would love to see his new 'Achmed the Dead Terrorist' act live.

    Really? Maybe its just her voice or something, but I would like her career much better if she just didn't talk.... well minus the Matt Damon skit that she did on Jimmy Kimmell's show, but other than that, I stand by my statement.

    I'm glad there are some Demetri Martin and Jim Gaffigan references in this thread. Easily two of the funniest comedians out there right now. Martin's standup on comedy central is downright entertaining.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Pryor- the greatest stand up comedian I ever saw. The reason I think he was the greatest was the fact that he was constantly dealing with a social topic; he may have done as much to change the image of race in the US as many other social activists did.

    Sam Kinison died way too early. I have never laughed harder than during his routine.

    I haven't really followed stand up for a long time, obviously.
