Best is pretty subjective, but I'd have to say Sandler and Seinfeld are the most successful?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

This thread blows.

No Rodney Dangerfield?  No Bill Cosby?   :flush:

Was going to say this but was not sure if they were considered "modern comedians"

Compared to, say, Shakespeare? Or compared to, say, Bill Hicks?

pfft... Whitney Cummings, she's hot, talks about dirty stuff and her name is sort of a double entendre.  What more could you ask for?

Wow. No Jeff Dunham in the Top 4?  What a joke of a thread. Joke.  But not the funny kind, like Jeff Dunham or Dane Cook tell.  The kind that's tragic. Sad, really.   :flush:

Well...this is clearly a 'clams parody thread, but yeah, Bill Hicks is GOAT.

I agree with Carrot Top if he slims back down like he says he is planning to do.

Dat Phan came to FHSU while I was going to school there.  He did an hour show and it was the most awkward experience of my life.  He stood up there for an hour trying to be funny with 700 people watching and not a single person laughing.

George Carlin and Bill Hicks are two of the best ever. Not sure if they're modern era though. But if the modern era has Dane Cook at the top, then thats indicative of how far comedy has fallen. He's funny, but his jokes are too simple.

edit: and Mencia? Yeah, i guess comedy does suck today. He's THE go to guy for intellectual property theft in the industry.
