I think the elite have been mentioned already, but a few others to check out: Glen Foster aka "That Canadian Guy" on just for laughs and was laughing the whole time

Mike Berbiglia is another

Demetri Martin is weird but I like him

Gaffigan is simply amazing.

Reggie Watts is also a comedic wizard.

Eddie Izzard
Jimmy Carr
Ricky Gervais

In that order, funniest Brits there are.


I suggest checking out the top of all of them.

Billy Connolly is the best. He also is the only person to die in a muppet movie. And an outstanding actor in both boondock saints movies.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

"... and I looked at it... and it wasn't getting any better. So I went over to my wife, and kissed her ever so gently on the lips, and I said "I love you, very very much dear. You just... had... a lizard." I mean, because the thing changed colors like, five times! And I said to the doctor, "Can you put this back? Cause it isn't finished cooking! It needs to cook two, three months!" But the hospital made us take it home."

Only truly great comedy can go 30 years, and still be just as funny as ever.

Rob Delaney is going to be absolutely huge soon. he's already big on twitter, but the guy is just too funny and smart not to become a household name.

Saw Carrot Top in Vegas last spring. Was amazingly funny and I was expecting crap all. People were crying with laughter. He nailed it from start to finish. Hes thin now too, he dropped the bizarre muscle weirdness.

Daniel Tosh though he reuses jokes too often. Sarah Silverman is always good and Bob Saget had the lamest jokes on tv shows like AFV and Full House but filthiest guy in the world on stage.

And Andrew Dice Clay was never funny. His standup sucked, his movie sucked and his career was over in an instant as soon as everybody realized how bad he was.
