Default Stand-up Comedy - Who's Your Favourite?

Hello guys,

I am sure that quite a few of you might have seen stand-up comedies. I am talking about the English ones, the Hindi ones which now come on TV generally suck. In fact, I feel nauseous when Siddhu laughs on national television.

I currently like Russell Peters, the guy who does those great 'racist' jokes. Some might find him offensive, but I do like his acts.

So which English stand-up comedian do you like?

My all time favourite is Jeff Dunham. I have watched all his shows. Larry the cable Guy is not bad either.

I am a HUGE fan of David Letterman. The masses don't 'get' his kind of jokes, but he is far more classy compared to Leno and others.

George Carlin all the way. Rest all just fade in comparison to him. sadly, he is no more. Among the living, Jeff Dunham for sure.

George Carlin. Not so much into stand-up comedy, so the only other comedian I like is Dave Chapelle.
