    Who are your favorite stand up comedians?

    Thought it would be interesting to see who tickles everyones funnybone. I'd say my current favorite, and has been for a few years, is Lewis Black. I got to see him here in D.C. when they taped Red, White and Screwed last year.

    Seinfeld obviously, but take him out.

    Brian Regan, Daniel Tosh, Nick Swardson and Jim Gaffigan are near the top for me right now.

    Lewis Black and George Carlin bore me to tears. Just my opinion though, a lot of people I know love them.

    I'm on the Dane Train. Dane Cook can be extremly funny. I didn't like his newest album though. It makes me think he may be running out of material.

    Ron White is another one that I like. I don't know why though. I just always seem to laugh my head off when he's on tv.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Mitch Hedberg and it isn't even close.

    Early Eddie Murphy is awesome and Eddie Izzard can get me going as well.

    Older Bill Cosby material
    Steven Wright
    Dennis Miller, especially The Off White Album
    Some George Carlin stuff
    Some Robin Williams stuff

    Of that list, Newhart reigns supreme.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I'm not big on stand-up comedy, but something about Jim Gaffigan's delivery makes me cry. Here he is talking about bacon:

    I like Eddie Izzard too.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I don't pay attention to names much, but some that I hear on XM make me laugh and others I just don't get. My favorite would still have to be Cosby. Maybe I'm just a bit old fashioned.

    I'm a Jeff Dunham fan. He is easily the best ventriloquist out there and his characters are all one of a kind. He is so good at going back and forth and makes me crack up every time I see him.

    Also enjoy Dave Attel.

    Tim Wilson is my favorite. There has been some of his material that wasn't very good but his best stuff is my favorite of anyone. Also while I don't really like Jim Norton's stand up material he is absolutly awesome on Opey and Anthony where he is just part of the show and not there to do his material like you hear a lot of comedians do when they are on radio shows.
