    Favorite Comedian!

    Okay, I know he's dead, but George Carlin was my hero. I saw one of his last shows and it was fan-freaking-tastic! I cried when I heard that he died. (

    In order from Favorite to not so Favorite, they go:

    1. George Carlin (1937-2008)
    2. Kathy Griffin
    3. Mitch Hedberg (1968-2005)
    4. Mel Brooks
    5. Jeff Dunham
    6. Jim Gaffigan

    Mel Brooks is a comedian, my sister disagrees, but he is!
    And sadly, 2 of the comedians on this list George Carlin and Mitch Hedberg are dead.

    But I'm interested in what you guys like! So spill!!!!!

    A lot of people don't find her funny but I think Kathy Griffin is Hilarious.

    I also like that guy with the puppets.....I can't think of his name but the puppets name is peanut...I think.

    Dave Chapelle was kinda funny

    Kathy Griffin is HILARIOUS! haha.

    And the guy with Peanut is Jeff Dunham...I love Jose Jalapeno...on a steek!

    I agree, Dave Chapelle is kind of funny.

    Oh, and I love Matt Stone and Trey Parker, they're the creaters of South Park, and I have to say, that show definately makes them qualified comedians...my favorite t.v. show...lol

    As far as stand-up comedians go, Louis C.K. is probably my favorite. He's the guy that Dane Cook rips his jokes off from. Ricky Gervais is pretty high up there as well.

    But for all-around comedy, Mel Brooks and John Cleese are the two funniest men that have ever lived.

    These statements told me a lot about you.

    Patton Oswalt
    Mitch Hedburg
    Ellen Degeneres
    Gabriel Iglesias

    I'm sure I'll think of more later...

    I really like Eddie Izzard, the action/executive transvestite. I think he's brilliant.

    Oh and Billy Connolly is funny too.
