I was sad to see Jeff Dunham on there. The guy is funny. His show sometimes pushes it, but his specials are hilarious.

I`m sure that`s a repost, but only because I remember having never heard of all but 2 of them.

Jeff Dunham was funny 20 years ago. But much like Dice Clay, he`s been doing the same bit ever since. I mean, hasn`t that jalipino rotted of that freakin` stick yet. I remember whatching him do that bit when I was in the 8th grade. I`M 33 NOW!!! MOVE THE HELL ON!!!

I like Jeff Dunham...well that is when I didn`t hear his same material over and over....and that was before his tv show, but still, he`s funny.

Interesting. It seems as though I agree with a good many comments on this list... Jeff Dunham doesn`t belong on it. The rest, you can pretty much keep... And as to the guy below me... Watch Robin Williams do stand up when you`re drunk. It will be the funniest sh*t you`ve ever seen.

How did Robin Williams not make this list? All the rest are spot on, though. These guys are the worst of the worst.

They were all true. Even Larry, even Dane, and even Jeff. They all recycle their material like crazy. It was funny the first time I heard their jokes, but every time I watched another special by any of them, I left without laughing once.

Jerry`s comedy is simple and easy for average people to relate to. The show on the other hand is way to funny. The bit with Kramer, the kerosene and Newman. "Oh the humanity!" HA!

> How did Jerry Seinfeld not make the list? His show was to comedy as Survivor is to legitimate theater.

Oh cmon, how can you not find "twang de twang de twang twang" and some random word NOT funny!!??? Next you`ll be telling us Jerry Springer isn`t a legitimate Journalist.

I agree with most of those, but some of those are funny and too many people started quoting their stuff and then we all got tired of them.

Ugh, I HATE Dane Cook and Larry The Cable Guy.

The original joke that Dane Cook allegedly stole was funny, until he delivered it. His fans are all douchebags, he replaces punchlines with yelling and running around, and from what Ive read/heard, hes a total dick.

For some reason race humor just isn`t all that funny to me. It`s like, anybody can do it. If I want race humor, I`ll just go to my job.

I like dane cook, he didnt need to make a movie though, but Mitch Hedberg was something else, how can you argue with `There should never be an escalator out of order sign, just escalator temporarily stairs`

I`m stunned that Jim Breuer didn`t make this list. He sure as hell belongs on it.

I think this article may have been better titled "Comedians who were funny once, but aren`t now."

With the exception of emo phillips, every single one of these guys were funny when they first came out. Howie Mandel`s 12 days of christmas song? Carrottop before he started looking like a freak? The Dice Man Cometh?

These guys may be washed up now, but even Gallager was quite witty and observant when he started. Till he went total prop and smash, he used to be very edgy (for the time)

mitch hedberg (albeit, he is dead) and jim gaffigan are hilarious and they`re american comics. it`s not that comics are american that makes them unfunny, it`s just like 4 out 5 comics aren`t funny at all regardless of race and america just publicizes its comedians more.

Who is Al and why aren`t comedians being funny at him? Come on, certainly Al deserves a laugh just as much as the rest of us.

Gallagher is funny as hell (but someone is going to say that about everyone on this list). Jeff Dunham is funny when he`s not doing stupid racist stuff, which I find he does to often. I love Peanut, and can tolerate Walter, but the dead terrorist guy has got to go.

Agreed. However, I did enjoy Dane Cook, when he first appeared in the spot light.

This list might be legit had it come from MAD magazine or Cracked. Newsweek knows comedy like Adam Lambert knows women.

Honestly, I think almost all American comedians are unfunny. I can only name, what... 2 or 3 American comedians I find funny, the comedy just seems so dumbed down and over the top. Lee Evans, Michael McIntyre, Jack Dee, Russell Howard, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr, Peter Kay... All my favourite comedians, all British.

And I`m surprised I didn`t see Sarah Silverman on there, she really is not a funny woman.

i gotta disagree with the jeff dunham part. its true that no one does the whole puppet thing besides him anymore, but thats the thing. He succeeds in what so many people have failed to do since then, because its damn funny.

his new show is straight up horrible though.

The only one i recognised was Jay Leno. Since when is he a comedian? he`s just a chatshow host who has a monologue surely? chatshow host with monologue doesnt not a comedian make.

skinnybox - chances are the submittor ran out of room to type all; assumed it had typed it all (as it is only one letter, it`s an easy mistake to make), and hit submit.

I don`t know many of these comedians, I`ve heard of one or two though.

Most of these are pretty true. Also, who ever said pauly shore was funny? I think Dane cook is funny, at least in the way a kid with ADHD is funny. Jeff Dunham belongs on this list for sure, ventriloquism should have died along time ago.

It`s about time someone acknowledged how horrible Jeff Dunham is. Although I think Jay Leno is funny! I like his traditional campy corny jokes :)
