I like these comedians.

-Daniel Tosh
-Chris Rock
-Tracy Morgan
-Anthony Jeselnik
-Sinbad
-Eddie Murphy
-Dan Soder
-Jordan Carlos
-Gabriel Iglesias
-Will Ferrell
-George Lopez

I think Kevin Hart is kinda funny but WAAAAY overrated. Daniel Tosh came to my school when I was in college and rocked the house.

I always liked Rita Rudner, even though I haven't seen her on tv in several years.

Richard Pryor
Bill Cosby
George Carlin
Rodney Dangerfield
Don Rickles
Aries Spears
Robin Harris
Jerry Seinfeld
Flip Wilson
Jonathan Winters

I always thought Eddie Murphy was funny but tried too hard to copy Richard Pryor. Chris Rock and Jamie Foxx are funny. They would make my top 15. Robin Williams, Will Ferrell, Sinbad, and Tracy Morgan wouldn't make my top 50.

The only one I've ever seen in person was Paula Poundstone. She had a really large audience in stitches and seemed so nice.

I really like Alonzo Bodden, who won one of the seasons of that comedian competition show - forget what it was called. He's often is on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me and is really good at thinking on his feet.

Have you all seen the new series Maron? The comedian Marc Maron stars. I doubt if I've ever seen or heard of him as a comedian, but for some reason I'm in mad lust for him now! Might be his goatee
