While playing golf today I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake.

Those two are a fastidious couple. She’s fast and he’s hideous.

"Doctor, I have a ringing in my ears." "Don't answer!"
Yes, Henny Youngman...wasn't the guy with the catch phrase "Take my wife please".

Just like Rodney Dangerfield always said "I don't any respect".

Phil Silvers was good too.

I just want to say thanks to all who didn't say Dane Cook. Which was all of you. I don't get his long stupid stories. I never thought he was even remotely funny.

Good picks everyone.

Bill Burr is my favorite. I also like Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Rodney Dangerfield, Kevin James and many others that were already mentioned.

Saw Joan Rivers years ago at the Riviera in Las Vegas. Amazing how she could keep up her rapid fire delivery walking back and forth across the stage. She must have breathed at sometime or another. She was fabulous and writes so much of her material. At least she used to.

Oh, yes, Phyllis and her husband, Fang, were hilarious!

I detest Robin Williams. I absolutely detest him. He is disgusting and not even remotely funny.

JMO, of course.

Lots of famous comedians come to mind like those listed here of course... but for a not so famous one, I like Brian Regan.
