Right now it is Joe Rogan and Jeff Foxworthy and Jerry Seinfeld.

Tough time to be a comedian in many ways. Many of the best will not do college campuses. No fun dealing with psychotic, militant snowflakes and SJWs.

No love for the late Sam Kinison? At the time.. he was the funniest thing going.. I watched some of his stuff recently and.. Not sure it has held up perfectly. Wasn't BAD by any stretch, but hindsight things are generally funnier remembered than actually watching. Had he lived, I thing he would have grown as a comedian and would still be funny.

His stand-up wasn’t really my cup of tea, but I’ll never forget his performance in “Back to School!” He and Rodney together were comedy gold... (NSFW)

Speaking of Rodney Dangerfield, I could add him to the list! Actually got to see him at a small club in Las Vegas, shortly before he died... poor guy was in rough shape physically (like a man about to have a heart attack), but he still gave a hell of a show.

At one point he asked for a woman to come on stage, and give him a kiss in exchange for his tie. Nobody was volunteering, but JUST as I was about to stand up, another woman beat me to it. If I’d known that was one of his last performances, I would’ve jumped up there more quickly!
