    As a big standup fan, I was wondering who you guys thought were funny and who weren't.

    I could list comedians on either side all day, but here's a short list to start with.

    Some Favorites
    Bill Hicks
    Eddie Izzard
    Mitch Hedberg
    Dave Chappelle

    Some guys I find Unfunny
    Dennis Leary
    Carlos Mencia
    Larry the Cable Guy
    Paul Riser

    Jerry Howard, "Curly" of the 3 Stooges
    Sam Kinison

    My least favorite, who nevertheless seems to be very happening:
    Will Ferrell

    I like Jerry Seinfeld and Jackson Perdue.

    I do not those blue collar comedy guys. That bit was funny for about 10 minutes.

    Ok, maybe I should clarify. I'm only asking about standup comedians. To my knowledge Will Ferrell never did any standup. I wouldn't say Sam Kinison was one of my favorite but I did like him.

    And while not a standup act, like most men I love the Stooges.

    Lewis Black is one of my favorites.

    Carlos Mencia is definately on the bottom. He just tries too hard.

    My favorites are Demetri Martin, Lewis Black, and Jim Gaffigan.

    Larry the Cable guy is from my hometown. No one will ever know this damn city for anything other than that (*&#(&@#(()*$*(#. Hate him hate him hate him hate him.

    I like

    Jim Gaffigan
    Mitch Hedberg
    Dave Attel

    I got my Brians mixed up. I like the little bit of Brian Posehn I saw in the Sara Silverman Show, but Brian Reagan is who I meant to post.

    I thought two more great ones: Zack Galifianakis and Sara Silverman.
