I was just commenting on George Carlin in another thread, and I thought it'd be cool for us to share thoughts on our favorite comedians.

My list:

George Carlin
Lewis Black
Chris Rock
Mitch Hedberg
Jim Gaffigan
Bill Cosby
Ron White
Bill Engvall
John Cleese (and the rest of Monty Python)

Amongst talk show hosts, I like Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, and Bill Maher.

I'm sure there are others that I'm omitting, as this is off the top of my head.

I hear so much about Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor that I really want to get a hold of their stuff. I feel like I'm missing out.

George Carlin.

Though not technically a comedian:

Mark Twain.

And of course Mark. ;\)

The New Jersey Nets should be considered too.

Louis C.K. is very, very funny.
Chris Rock definitely.

Is this some sort of bizarre non-hockey reference? \:\)

I think they are a professional basketball team, but that's kind of debatable ;\)

Ooooh, what about ventriloquists? Jeff Dunham and Achmed/Walter. Also Tim Conway/Harvey Korman...those guys were hilarious on the Carol Burnette show.

No favorite comedian here but my favorite stand-up performance is Eddie Murphy Delirious - utter brilliance. I could watch this everyday and it would still make me laugh.
