Comedy is just as subjective as any other form of art. This means that what I think is funny, you may see as completely un-funny, but I’m putting together this list anyway. There’s a lot of old comics that I think are hilarious like Richard Pryor, Steve Martin and Rodney Dangerfield, but I tried to keep the list relatively current with a couple older bits thrown in just for good measure. I know this list will be controversial but aren’t they all. Like I said, comedy is subjective so I am sure there will be comedians in my top 10 that some of you will hate. I think all these clips are really solid though, so if you see someone in the list you normally wouldn’t like, give them a try and watch the video. Let me know what your top 10 is in the comments section, or just tell me that my taste in comedy sucks.
Below you will find videos from George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Mitch Hedburg (RIP), Eddie Izzard, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Louis C.K., David Cross, Ricky Gervais and Bill Hicks. If you were hoping to see Dane Cook on the list, just leave now :)
