Root of All Evil is pretty frickin hilarious.
Second the nomination. As topical as Carlin was, but more upbeat. Izzard is hilarious, and gets morehilarious every time I see him.
Hands down: Eddie Izzard.
he had a substance abuse problem-but not like he's alone on that.
everyone abuses a substance at one point or another.
Good thread. IMO, without Pryor, you don't have Murphy, Rock, etc. I'm not saying they aren't good, but what they're doing was set up by Richard. Listen to 'Is it something I said?' or 'That nigger's crazy' or both and it is still funny as hell. I think Bruce and carlin were hugely influential in their own right, but to be honest, they never made me laugh nearly as much. They did make me think, but I likes my comedy funny.
Dave Chappelle - Terrorists
Dave Chappelle - Sesame Street
Been there...done that again.
Richard Pryor as he is the one that started it all
And where all those comedians looked up to him.
Actually, Prior based his routine on Lenny Bruce and Red Foxx. George Carlin hated him.
Eddie Izzard is amazing. He's #1 for me!
