For me it's Carl Baron or Acmal Saleh.

Carl Baron is hilarious because everything he says is true and makes scene, but somehow he makes it hilarious. And Acmal's funny because...he's..Acmal. I also love listening to/watching Arj Barker.

Post videos and stuff of your favourite comedy skits as well.

Bugger. I did search though lol.

Rodney Rude deserves a spot in my list as well. Rude, sexist, racist, arrogant pig, yet f*cking hilarious! Has got the perfect voice for stand up imo.

Probably Billy Connolly Just ahead of Dave Chappelle

Some i like also Richard Pryor , Eddie Murphy , Few More i can't think of at this moment in time.

The Canadians are a lot funnier than the Yanks Canadians crack me up yanks don't . Comedy Channel's Just For Laughs is Great with Canadians Comedy Central Presents is pathetic with Yanks.

Also watching Ponderland lately, if you had have asked me who Russell Brand was a few months ago, i'd have nothin', but some of his shit is actually gold.

Oh, and gotta add John Moloney.

"Hi, I'm John Moloney and yes, I have genuinely been mistaken for a lesbian."

The best opening one-liner ever.

Enjoy. His "Hot & Fluffy" performance is 2x longer and better than that.

Personally, I think Robin Williams has always been better than Eddie Murphy Smile

I haven't really put much thought into this. They all have different styles and I can't think of one type while remembering another.

Like Jim Carrey and Robin Williams who are based around imitations, rather than your normal straight up joker.

It's hard.

Two Carl Barron videos, from the DVD 'whatever comes next', one is straight after the other, they're definitely worth a watch, both go for around 5 minutes, some great quotes and one liners in these. Take a look.
