2.) Jon Stewart & The 'Daily Show' Team
3.) Will Ferrell
4.) Larry David
5.) David Chappelle
6.) Ellen DeGeneres
7.) Bill Murray
8.) Amy & David Sedaris
9.) Robert Smigel
10.) Jim Carrey
11.) David Letterman
12.) Aaron McGruder
13.) Jack Black
14.) Wanda Sykes
15.) Augusten Burroughs
16.) Scot Armstrong
17.) Conan O'Brien

Seinfeld should be there... Vince Vaughn should also be there with Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller... Steve Carell... Robin Williams... there are many missing... and the order is wrong too!

the new york comedy club is running a special on tickets to fill it up for the new comedy central series being taped there this spring.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Margaret Cho and Janeane Garofalo.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Margaret Cho and Janeane Garofalo.

Five years ago.

I've even kind of been disapointed by Cross lately... his politics are getting in the way of the humor.

Patton Oswalt is hands down my favorite right now.
Zach G. is also just brilliant.

I think Paul F. Thompkins is also totally underrated.  He changes his material faster than anyone else I've seen more than a few times... he keeps it good too.

...yeah. I haven't really kept up on my stand-up. Not my favorite mode, really; I just know what I like. I liked the Sarah Silverman movie, too (the stand-up parts; I could've done with half the skits/numbers).

Dane Cook is a theiving hack... he was funny for five minutes and now just floats on bullshit and frat-guys...

sorry

Carlin was so good in his day, that I can't bring myself to discuss his downfall.
