    OK here is a list of some of my favourite comedians and I am hoping other people will increase the world laughter quotient by suggesting others.

    I'll start with Peter cook have to particular recommend the lesser known 'Why bother' with the six toed Danish persiflagellator Chris Morris.
    It also might be ridiculous to start without
    mentioning the irreplaceable Bill Hicks.

    Brendon Burns
    Adam Buxton
    Jason Byrne


    (can't think of any beginning with A who really cause elevated hilarity)

    I second Lewis Black, he's probably my favorite! All of Lewis Blacks albums are good, but I like his earlier ones better, I would Recommend "The White Album," and "The End of The Universe."

    John Pinette is also hilarious, he has two or three albums out....

    Here is a great clip of John http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSvPSkdoz08

    R.I.P. :( He was funny, too bad he had to mess with drugs.....

    John Pinette is fantastic. As is Eddie Izzard. I can't believe I forgot them earlier.

    Jim Gaffigan is one of my favorites. I also like Lewis Black, and Frank Caliendo does some hilarious impressions (You cant beat his John Madden)

    Sarah Palin
    Her colorful misuse of the English language makes me laugh (and then I cry).
