I don't think the list is completely accurate (I think we are missing a couple of people here) and it seems a bit questionable, but what do you think?  Do you agree with the people listed here?

Honestly, I'm perfectly fine with Larry the Cable Guy.  I don't listen to his stuff, but I am fine with him when he is on stuff like Blue Collar TV.

However, Dane Cook and Carlos M. for sure belong here.

If we're referring to scritly standup Larry The Cable guy and pretty much all the blue collar comedy folk should be on there IMHO.  I find them all pretty much unfunny. However, I have to admit I did find Jeff Foxworty stuff funny in the past. 

Lisa Lampanelli I agree with too.  She throws out a bunch of F-bombs and mean spirited stuff and gets labeled as funny.

Although Dane Cook does the F-bomb thing like Lampanelli, I don't mind him as much.  Though I find him a bit overrated. 

Theres others that should be on there over the current choices.  Jerry Seinfeld comes to mind.

I saw Larry the Cable Guy live in concert last year and he was absolutely hilarious.

I don't find most comedians to be funny, especially lately.  I used to think Sinbad was HILARIOUS.. but I was about 8 years old when I thought that and at the time and had just watched a show where he made a bunch of jokes about butts and farts.. which I actually would probably still find very funny.

My husband's cousin thinks Jeff Dunham is comedy gold!!! but he holds all ventriloquists in high regard, and thinks Dead Silence is the scariest movie ever.

Let me guess than, this cousin has a couple copies of R.L. Stine's Night of the Living Dummy 1, 2, and 3 right?  Wink

As a side note, here are some comedians I DO think are funny . . . and I have many of their routines on my iPod:

* George Carlin
* Rodney Dangerfield
* Bill Cosby
* Jerry Seinfeld
* Pat Cooper
* Monty Python (everyone in the group is funny, but I'd put Cleese, Idle, and Palin at the top of the list)
* Don Rickles
* Jackie Mason (well, he's funny in small doses, but he tends to grate on my nerves if I listen to him too long)

I like Jeff Dunham and Frank Caliendo. 

Carlos Mencia is painfully unfunny. 

Larry the Cable guy..eh, he's harmless.  Don't listen to him myself.

Jim Nortan has aligned himself with the terrible Opie and Anthony show so he's gulity by association. 

Jay Leno isn't terrible.  Just sort of average.

Don't know about that list (too tired to click through and read it), but on general principle, I found "Ant" extremely unfunny on Last Comic Standing and since.

I used to watch "An Evening at the Improv" religiously and have to say that in recent years, most contemporary stand-ups leave me completely underwhelmed.

I took my wife to see Brett Butler live once, and while she was funny, I cannot recall any specifics from the show.  Does that make it good (because we laughed) or not-so-much because it was, uh, forgettable?

(The most memorable thing about the night was how that venue packed us in like sardines, barely enough room to move without elbowing a neighbor, and charging like $8 per drink with a $20 per show minimum ON TOP of the ticket price...needless to say, we never went back).

I had the privilege to see George Carlin live in Chapel Hill, NC and laughed my backside off three ways to Sunday.  That dude had the gift.  RIP.

I saw Carlin live twice.  The first time was in the early 1990s and he was hilarious.  The second time was probably 8 or 10 years ago.  Most of his show was excellent, but he spent the final 20 minutes or so delivering a rambling monologue about why he believed there is no God.  At first, people were chuckling at a few mildly funny things he said.  Then the audience seemed to get restless and uncomfortable like "What is this guy doing?"  It was much too heavy and out of place for a comedy show.  A lot like how Lenny Bruce ended his career ranting and raving about freedom of expression and stuff.

Carlos Mencia deserves to be on the list of 'unfunny comedians.'
As do: Larry the Cable Guy, Dane Cook, Gallagher (I liked him when I was 6, but hitting Melons with Mallets gets old fast.), Carrot Top, Kathy Griffin, Paula Poundstone, and Brett Butler.

As for funniest: Lewis Black, Katt Williams, Bill Maher (I'll get s**t for that), Mitch Hedberg and Steven Wright.




Jim Nortan has aligned himself with the terrible Opie and Anthony show so he's gulity by association. 

Jay Leno isn't terrible.  Just sort of average. 


Jim Norton's hilarious.  Have his cd and it's a great runthrough of jokes.  He's quite often the saving grace of O&A (used to listen to em in high school, then they went to satellite.)

I forget who all was on that list, but I can think of some who are rather 'unfunny': Frank Caliendo, Will Sasso, Louie Anderson, D.L. Hughley, and Paul Rodruguez.

If they did a list of "funniest", I'd add: Norm MacDonald, Gilbert Gottfried, Dom Irrera, The Amazing Jonathon, Dave Chappelle, and Katt Williams.  All 6 are vastly, vastly funny.

Carrot Top, Jimmy Carr and Dane Cook are probably the worst comedians I've ever had the misfortune of knowing of.
I've still yet to hear anyone better than Pryor, Hicks, Carlin and Black.
