Who's your favorite comedian?

I watched lots of the British shows too. And a lot of it wasn't British humour, the show was just hosted by a British guy.

I like the American version better too. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I just watched "Never Scared". Chris Rock used to be one of my favouritees, but what does he repeat everything so many times? Every point he has he, he says it at LEAST 3 times. And many more than 3 if people are still giving him courtesy laughs at that point (courtesy laugh = a fake lagh given to somebody who has not met your expectations, but you don't want the person to feel bad by getting no applause)

I think I have to remove him, and make my list simply: Dave Chappelle and Eddie Murphy.

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.


I have seen several of the British shows...and I like them better...Josie Wales (sp?)....that was when I really started to like her.... ;-D


I like the British version, but I like the American one more, mostly for Wayne's songs along with that other guy (forget his name but he sings with Wayne a lot in the skits where Colin and Ryan make up names of songs for them to sing for an infomercial)

The first time I saw Wright I seriously took the next day off from school because my stomach hurt from laughing so hard. Then again I didn't need too much of an excuse to miss school, but that was probably the strangest one. ;-D To this day I can't help but laugh my ass off when I see a mime.

Anyone else here about Dave Chapelle converting to Islam recently?
