I don't know if any of you guys know this guy, but my favorite performer is Bobby "the pit bull of comedy" Slayton.
Quite possibly the most offensive performer out there, and I've listened to his performances over and over.
A very close second is Mitch Hedberg.
Totally the opposite, Mitch is not offensive at all, more of the 'Steven Wright' quasi-stoner appeal, he is comic genius without having to be vulgar.
And then of course there's the funniest man in America (at the moment): Dave Chappelle!!!!

Chris Rock hands down is my favorite. I know Bigger and Blacker by heart damn near. Loved Bring the Pain also but was a little dissapointed with his last HBO special. I still feel he's the best stand-up comedian though.

I never liked Dave Chappelle's early stand-up. I always thought he seemed like a white washed black dude trying to be "down with the hood". After Half Baked and I got used to his personality I'd have to agree with ShawnBreezy and say he's one of the funniest guys out there.

The last Robin Williams special, the one he did a couple years ago was genius. I'm not sure if that's Live on Broadway or not Nate. Anyways the one I'm thinking of was insane.

Yeah, the HBO special he did in the early 80s was great as well.

Yes, 5280 the one he did a couple of years ago is the Broadway show he did.

I'll throw George Carlin out there as well. Quite possibly the best observational humorist ever. You really cannot go wrong with any of his HBO shows over the years. I always try to catch the old reruns on HBO Comedy.

Shawn, big props for knowing Mitch Hedberg. He's great. "Have you ever been to a restaurant and they're like, 'Smith, party of two, Smith, party of two.' And no one shows up? And then they're like 'Turner, party of three...' Well, what happened to the Smiths? How can anyone EAT at a time like this? There are people missing! They could be in the trunk of a car!"

Steve Hofstetter! http://www.stevehofstetter.com

He's a 24-year-old friend of mine who is part of the Comedy Caravan tour that travels the country, visiting campuses. He just visited UK, and I went and met him, got his book, and his CD. He is hilarious, and what's even better is I knew him before he was a comic, back when he used to run JerkoftheWeek.com with his brother. Good stuff!

Honorable mention to Dave Chappelle.

The only real standup I've seen is Jerry Seinfeld's Live on Broadway... he's on tour again now... I was mad, I didn't know he was in Toronto until the day before when it was sold-out or I would've paid the $70 to see him for sure!!! Boo-urns!

The all-time classic standup performance is Bill Cosby's "Himself," but that's strictly for us old people.
I did enjoy the Blue Collar comedy tour - I guess I'm getting in touch with my inner redneck (I grew up on a rabbit farm that had broken-down cars rusting away in the front yard).

I liked Cosby in "Himself"

I like Eddie Murphy more in "Delirious" than "Raw"

Chris Rock's new one, "Ain't Never Scared" is pretty good.
