Best stand up comedian

Who is your favorite standup comedian of all time?

I think Jim Gaffigan is hilarious, I hope he has a new special soon. George Carlin and Lewis Black are also really good for political comedy.

Amen. Am I the only one that thinks Mencia looks like he has down syndrome? Then again, that might be too harsh on the people that actually have it. I wouldn't want to be in the same category as him.

I agree that there are too many to list both new and old.

Though I am surprised no one mentioned Eddie Murphy, he created a whole new breed of comedians (check out delirious if you have not already)

People in America know Tommy Tiernan?
Not as good as he used to be, but still awesome.
