Favorite Comedian(s)?

Here's my favorites off the top of my head and in no particular order:

Dave Chappelle

Eddie Griffin

Gabriel Iglesias - Gabriel is awesome because of the sound-effects he makes! look him up if you haven't watched him!

Steve Harvey

More that are mainly in films:

Will Ferrell

Will Smith (yeah, he's more of a outstanding actor than a comedian, but whenever he's in a role for comedy or just comedic relief; he's brilliant)

Steve Carrell

Jim Carrey

Who are your favorite comedians? Why do you like them? I know I said they aren't in particular order but Dave Chappelle is an exception. I think he's my all time favorite. Everyone else I mentioned are in no order.

That's about all I'm familiar with that I like for standup.

I don't want to get eaten alive
'cause you're so dangerous
No more hearts I can trust, you see
I don't want to get eaten alive
To be eaten alive
Eaten alive
I don't ever want to be

I'm telling you. "Jesus is Black..." is one of the very best comedy specials ever. The thing I love about him is that he speaks 100 percent truth. Always. That's probably he did not become the huge star I feel he was destined to be. I hate to hear he is in poor health. Whenever he does leave us he will definitely be missed.
