Who's your favorite comedian?

I just saw Seinfeld live the other night in Cedar Rapids, and he was hilarious. I would have to say he is my favorite! Very creative and very funny show! ;-D :-D

It's funny because a lot of Americans wouldn't get the Canadianized jokes..... can't think of any names off the top of my head though. "Something" Rogers comes to mind............. and oh yeah, Russell Peters.

Seinfeld is my second favourite show next to Family Guy, but I'm just not a fan of Jerry's standup routine. Those little 20 second clips before each episode can be funny though :-D And George Carlin was probably funny in his day, but nowadays he's outmatched since there's so much competition. I can understand if he was the only controversial comedian like he was in the 70's or whatever, but you need more than taht now to keep up with the big boys........ no offense to him though. That would be like saying Babe Ruth was a bad hitter because he had a bunch of horrible players in his era....... but maybe comparing Carlin to Ruth is going a bit far..... OK Jimmie Foxx...... yeah that's better !+)



I have to politely disagree with you about Carlin. I saw him do a couple of interviews and I was surprised on how articulate and hillarious he still was. Maybe I'm just a big fan.

I'm dead on with you there, you can still catch acts of his from 10+ years ago and they are still as funny comedians today if not more so.

No love for Drew Carey... :-?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

Not a big fan of him on his sitcom, his stand up's alright. Ryan Stiles, however, is great on his show.

I really like the early Drew Carey Shows...the later ones are a little suspect, I'll admit... :-/ .....but to see him in person is hilarious... ;-D ...and on Who's Line is it...Ryan, Colin, Greg and Wayne carry that show.... :-)

Who's Line is an awesome show and I agree that Carey could be completely missing and nobody would notice or care.

Anyone ever see any of the original Brittish Whos Line? Its basically the same exact thing that is here, argubly even funnier. (Maybe because Ryan and Colin did that as well)

Its repeated late nights on Comedy Central occasionally.
