    Who's joking. Gallagher and Carrot Top were on the cutting edge.

    was there an option for "i voted on the last comedian poll"?

    ps margaret cho is a good call. she was neglected on the other one.

    mitch hedberg had a few amusing lines. He's nowhere even remotely close to the farthest point away from the vicinity of the greatest comedians ever.

    Seriously though, my pick for the greatest stand-up comic would be Eddie Murphy in Delirious.

    dave was the eleventh choice. just to keep it interesting. some people think he's a good standup. and yeah i know, eleven's too many. but i'm mob roulette. i mock the physics of messageboards on the daily. where the fuck you been?

    also i was not aware there was another comedian poll. cause sometimes i go outside.

    fuckers.

    Great question. Its hard to argue against Eddie Murphy back in the day.
    I will say that I think all 3 of Chris Rocks HBO specials have been absolutely fantastic. He's very good at deliverying his lines, great facial expressions which makes it all the more hilarious
    Strangers with this kind of honesty make me go a big rubbery one

    Robert Schimmel is one of my favs. underated as all hell. he started making jokes about his 11 year old son dying of cancer and his career went to hell and nobodys heard from him since.

    yeah, mitch hedbergs stuff was amusing but there wasnt much significance too it.

    there's nothing better than eddie izzard's dress to kill, but his other stuff can be inconsistent.

    i love patton oswalt, but apparently nobody wants to put him on their polls. david cross is awesome too.

    Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy.

    Not a big fan of the whiny/angry white guy routine.
