A small list below to help you out?
Gracie Allen
Steve Allen
Tim Allen
Woody Allen
Laurel and Hardy
The Marx Brothers
Monty Python
Not Ready for Prime-Time Players (Saturday Night Live)
The Three Stooges
Rowan and Martin
Smothers Brothers
Woody Allen

Small list?  (Edited for space).  I'd call that GINORMOUS, but that reminds me too well of the fiberglass Burger King (shudder) so I will not.  Certainly there's lots of talent to choose from. 
Oh, and yes, Peter Johnson, I for one remember Bob Newhart's BUTTON DOWN MIND and the now nearly forgotten impact of the FIRESIGN THEATRE (are their albums all out of print?) 
Yaddo43 and RCMerchant: Henny Youngman: OH YEH!!!  Peter Johnson: "Dime and pin"  BounceGiggle  I love Henny Youngman . . .

Of the classics, I'd go for

I also enjoy George Carlin quite a bit.

dean, I recently "acquired" about six episodes of Knowing Me, Knowing You With Alan Partridge. A-ha! Funny funny stuff. Between the Roger Moore problems and when Alan pees himself with the knife thrower.

Watched Coogan tonight in a con caper film called Lies and Alibis with a huge cast of familiar faces. Decent film with some laughs, but Coogan was better than the material.

blah blah stuff blah blah obscure pop culture reference blah blah clever turn of phrase blah blah bad pun blah blah bad link blah blah zzzz.....

ive always been a fan of the three stooges (shemp not curly), abbot and costello, sam kinisen, gene wilder, mel brooks, richard pryor, milton berle, bob newhart. none of todays comics really make me laugh so much as groan because a lot of them seem to go for pure shock value without actually saying anything funny. im not offended easily but if youre going to be incredibly vulgar at least say something funny while your doing so.

Good work!  He's easily one of my favourite comedians, but interestingly enough I haven't seen enough of his work despite this.

But one day, soon...

Most of my faves (if not all) have already been mentioned, but here's one I think you guys may have overlooked:

Jeff Dunham - Ventriloquist extraordinaire! This guy has a lot of fun with his audiences and has some truly unique puppets at his command. My favorites are Walter, a crotchety old man, and Peanut, a weird muppet lookin' thing that is insanely loveable and funny. You know they're just puppets being controlled by someone, but damn it, Jeff manages to make them each their own personality and sometimes you forget you're watching a ventriloquist in action. Also, his "Achmed: The Dead Terrorist" character is funny as hell! Look for a clip of Achmed on Youtube.  TeddyR

Re.  The Firesign Theatre:
ALL of The Firesign Theatre material/movies/records/cd's/radio shows/etc. are still in print.
Not only are all the old things available still, but the boys are still creating NEW material!!
And, they are as funny/strange as ever --
Please, everyone go to:

Lewis Black (smart, yet insane.)
Mitch Hedberg (offbeat.  Reminds me of Steven Wright)
Andrew Dice Clay (Anybody who can be that offensive, yet likable is great)
Jim Norton (I like his honesty, yet offensive as well.)
Chris Titus (brilliant.)
Weird Al Yankovic (I consider him a comic.  He's funny while being family friendly.  And he writes a catchy song too.)
Steven Wright.  (he's a genius.)

I'd have to say Bill Hicks and Richard Pryor are my all time favourite comedians, they are absolute legends taken too soon.  Smile

Richard Pryor NSFW!

As for British comedians, Michael McIntyre and Frankie Boyle are really hilarious newcomers.

My fave moment from Frankie Boyle regarding the queen. NSFW!

Has anyone else heard about a press conference being held on Sunday morning (the 9th, 10 am), supposedly marking the return of Andy Kaufman!?

The Amazing Jonathan has me in stitches every time I see him. And Brian Posehn is my spiritual brother. In terms of cinema, I'm a big fan of the Marx brothers. A Night At The Opera kills me.

None of these, are by any means, their best film, but they are their funniest, as they all had me, both literally and figuratively, on the floor.  And these are also my favorite comedians, I might add.

Abbott and Costello
. . . Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Bob Hope
Alias Jesse James
Fancy Pants
Monsieur Beaucaire
Seven Little Foys

Buster Keaton
Seven Chances
Even 83 years later, the stunts performed in this film are still mind boggling.

Laurel and Hardy
Babes in Toyland

Peter Sellers and Margaret Rutherford
The Smallest Show on Earth

Red Skelton
Fuller Brush Man

The Three Stooges
. . . Go Around the World in a Daze

Gene Wilder
Start the Revolution without Me

And I'd be remiss not to mention the funniest ensemble comedy, I've ever seen.
Funniest ensemble comedy
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

And the funniest TV movie I ever saw
Sammy, the Way-Out Seal
The last, not only had me, but both my mother and my younger sister on the floor. We try to get up, see the seal being chased through the supermarket by the dogs in town, and down we go again, paralyzed by laughter.
