Foxworthy and Engvall and Ron White I'll agree with. I never cared for Larry.



Foxworthy is.. A bit of an oddity. he's been around 30 years now and is still funny. And still has basically the same schtick. You can probably count on one hand comedians with a SOLID 30+ year career as a comedian. Eddie branched out and became a movie star. But.. Foxworthy.. I guess MAYBE you could put Cosby in there.. George Carlin is the big one. Foxworthy has done it cleanly, too. Pending on if you count Cosby.. They might be the only clean comedians with that long a career.

SHORT careers.. Sam and Andy Kaufmann.. Kaufmann, we haven't seen anything like him since. I do kinda wonder what would have happened to him had he lived. And the influence he might have had on upcoming comedians. Of course, Andy would probably be ticked off at being called a comedian.

Carol Burnett and Tim Conway. Together they were unstoppable.

Just wanted to add Sinbad. I've seen him twice and he is hilarious and uses NO foul language. Pure entertainment.
At one point I laughed so much at something he said, and I laughed and laughed and it was just one of those moments in which I couldn't stop laughing. Sinbad finally looks over and says, "are you ok?" which for whatever reason made me laugh harder. He can get the funniest expressions on his face. Asked me again, "no seriously-you ok?"

I no longer have a favorite they are no longer funny
Extreme opinion smearing and thinly veiled attacks on public figures is not humor
Scary clowns

I forgot I saw David Brenner in person around 2011 or 2012. He was pretty funny also. I remember watching him on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (the best host ever).
