    I've recently been watching some Bill Hicks, Steven Wright and Russel Peters but for me it has to be Demetri Martin

    I watched the Comedy Store last night on TV, and there was an Australian guy who had a prosthetic foot, I can't for the life of me remember his name, but I was crying with laughter. :p

    I'd have to say he's my favorite at the moment, though I have always like Lee Evans and Ricky Gervais.

    I don't watch many of the new ones, but Ron White is good. Richard Pryor is the god.

    There was a big (fat) guy in the 90s who used to joke about his weight. He told about going to a Chinese Buffet and getting yelled at: "why you no eat vegetable fat boy?!" and "you go home now, you be here four hour!" He also went on about being on an airplane as a big guy, and being threatened to be thrown off the plane. He threatened to "take you all down" by jumping up and down on the plane. Anyone remember him?

    Jonathan Winters is a god as well.

    Eddie Izzard has to be one of my favourite ever stand-ups - could listen to ramble for hours.

    Ross Noble and Billy Connoly [sp?]. I like the local chaps like Dave Spikey, but for sheer re-watchability it's them guys.

    Paddy McGuinness or Roy 'Chubby' Brown, I'm quite infantile in my humour. :D

    Chris Rock
    Lee Evans
    Eddie Murphy, Back when he was actually funny.
    Peter Kay, when I first saw him. Gets a little repetitive after a while though.

    Sorry, forgot to add Victoria Wood. But I don't think she tours much anymore, nor does she get on TV. Not 'cool' enough, I don't think.

    I'd probably have to say Eddie Izzard too. I saw him a couple of years ago at Wembly Arena on the Sexie tour. Very, very funny :D

    Totally forgot about him! A favorite, but I've only seen one performance on DVD.

    Eddie Murphy of course.
    Download Comedian off iTunes. Old skewl.

    Howie Mandell is hilarious.
    Jerry Seinfeld is great.

    But you can't forget Denis Leary.

    Before I opened this thread, I was thinking of Demetri Martin. I'm glad someone else likes him. His quirky sense of humor is just my style. He's hilarious!
