Dave Chappelle is king of stand-up. (at least for our generation, it would have been interesting/awesome to witness George Carlin and Richard Pryor as we were able to with Chappelle)

Almost kings (taking what I just said in to consideration)…

-Ron White

– Louis CK

Carlos Mencia, thumbs down, imo. Richard Pryor anyone? He was the man, and not to mention Eddie Murphy was a wonderful stand-up in the day.

@Josh
Eddie Murphy – RAW… Top 10.

Carlos Mencia?? I’m sorry I can’t agree… I’m ok with blacks making fun of blacks. Whites making fun of whites. But Guatemalan’s making fun of Mexicans?? That’s just racist. I can’t stand that fool.

what do you guys think about this list? Would you subtract from it? add to it? or Just Re-Do the whole thing?

@Tony There’s a bunch of films in there I haven’t seen. Animal house definitely deserves a higher spot, Beverly Hills cop isn’t that funny, Lampoon’s vacation isn’t that funny either.

Most of the films on that list I would call “ok.”

Wait a minute, there are actually people in existence who think Carlos fucking Mencia is funny? Wow, this world never ceases to surprise me. What’s next, Dane Cook is funny?

Come on, that Mencia dude doesn’t even have any jokes, he just tells other people’s jokes that he barely even understands. He’s just a tragic attention ho.

Eddie Murphy is hilarious though, his bits are so damn wrong. Especially that part about the action figure up the ass.
