The Ten Greatest Stand-up Comedians of All Time!

I’m a huge fan of stand-up comedy, and I always was! The following Ten are truly unique and very talented stand-up comedians. Here it is…

1.       George Carlin (1937-2008)

Carlin was the best stand-up comedian of all time! Not only was he such a talented comedian, he was quite easily the greatest social commentator of the 20th Century! He was one very intelligent man and a very funny too! R.I.P!

2.      Robin Williams (1951- )

Not only is Robin Williams one of the most versatile and talented actors of all time, he is also an exceptional stand-up comedian! The energy he creates on stage is just second to none.

3.      Dave Chappelle (1973- )

Chappelle is fucking hilarious! Eclipsed only by the two giants preceding him on this list, Chappelle is one of the most hilarious stand-up comedians of all time!  He’s also a very intelligent man too!

4.      Chris Rock (1965- )

Chris Rock is just one of a kind! When Rock walks out on stage the crowds go insane, he’s brand of stand-up comedy is like nothing out there, usually comedy revolving around observational comedy and political satire.

5.       Louis C.K (1967- )

Louis is an underrated stand-up comedian who is just a genius at using life’s most basic topics and turning them into absolutely hilarious performances that will stay with you for a very long time!

6.      Frank Caliendo (1974- )

Caliendo is probably the most talented impressionist in the world! I love his George W. Bush, and Chris Farley impersonations! This guy is bound to make you cry from laughing! This is a very talented stand-up comedian!

7.       Will Ferrell (1967- )

Before making it big on the big screen, Farrell was an exceptional stand-up comedian for Saturday Night Live! Ferrell is just a comedic genius who is awesome on stage, especially in his impersonation of George W. Bush!

8.      Russell Peters (1970- )

Peters is a Canadian stand-up comedy genius! His work is mostly satire and improvisational comedy. How many stand-up comedians are out there to gather 13ooo plus crowds to there shows?

9.      Patton Oswalt (1969- )

Oswalt is a very entertaining stand-up comedian that given time could make it big in the stand-up business!

10.   Richard Pryor (1940-2005)

Pryor was one exceptional stand-up comedian who helped evolve the stand-up comedy business into a new age. Pryor remains to be a huge idol for most stand-up comedians now days.

There it was my top ten best stand-up comedian list! If you think I missed any exceptional stand-up that’s worthy of the list, then leave a comment below! Thank you!

    Great list. I would have added Eddie Murphy. “Delirious” was a classic.

  4. I can’t believe you like Louis C.K. I recently discovered him and though his style is somewhat perverted that guy is hilarious!

    Where’s Bill Hicks? He’s easily the best stand up comedian of all time (yes, he’s better than Carlin) and he isn’t even mentioned here.

    Sam Kinison, Lenny Bruce and Mitch Hedberg also deserve being mentioned
