I know this isn't a "joke", but just wondering who your favorite male and female comedians are? For me, my favorite male would be Foster Brooks. Go on Youtube and watch some of the celebrity roasts he did back in the 1970's, especially the ones he did of Don Rickles, Sammy Davis Jr., and Hubert Humphry. They're hilarious!!! He's a very, VERY underrated comedian. Female would be a tie between Carol Burnett and Lucile Ball. They're both just too good to choose between. I know my picks make me sound dated lol, but these are some of the greats!

Alas, some of my favorite males are deceased, in fact for many years now. Marty Feldman, and Benny Hill.


Dawn French is my favorite female, and she is still around.


As you can tell, I am partial to British Comedy.

Omigosh! Foster Brooks. I remember him doing his "drunk" routine on Dean Martin's show. He also did a stint as a newscaster on one of our local TV stations--late '60s or early '70s, I think.

Shame he died too young, along with Ralphie May who met a similar fate. Both excellent comedians who never really got the credit they were due.
