Why am I the only person who's mentioned Ricky Gervais? Is it because you guys haven't seen his routine? Because I can't believe that someone could see his stuff and not find it hilarious. Maybe it translates badly across the pond?
Oh yeah! I've seen his material before, and it was pretty good. I just haven't seen a lot of it.
I can't BELIEVE no one has mentioned Don Knotts! D:
He's my favorite. I mean come on people, Andy Griffith show! XD Not to mention how funny his cartoon self in the New Scooby Doo Movies episodes he appeared in is, haha. Laurel and Hardy and Jonathan Winters, some other funny guys, were there too. Oh yeah, can't forget the Three Stooges. XD
And I also like Robin Williams and Bernie Mac. Too bad Bernie Mac died. He was only 50 too. D:
EDIT: Oh yeah, I also enjoy Jerry Seinfeld and George Lopez!
Dave Chappelle is a ♥♥♥♥ing genius. As is Godfrey (look him up on youtube: "laugh factory arnold" and "running in the rain"). George Carlin just seems like he spams the "f" word, plus his cynical views on life aren't really my taste. He can make a good point, but I don't find him funny. I also don't like any comedians who think they're funny because they talk about weed all the time. I like Dave Chappelle because he challenges stereotypes and his jokes can be appreciated by anyone with a sense of humor. Plus, he has the same birthday as me.
