Titus cracks me up but I really like the classics like Cosby, Pryor, Kinison, and Eddie Murphy.

I couldnt agree more,I like most of the people mentioned here but Dane Cook I just dont get,I think his movies are better than his stand up.I rented his dvd about the bus tour and the opening comics he had on his tour were funnier than him.I did rent some montreal comedy festival dvds the other day that had different comics and dane Cook was one of them,but it was early Dane Cook,he didnt look the same as he does now,but he was actually funny with his routine,thats the only time i've ever laughed at anything of his

Please don't tell me your in that lone group of people who enjoyed "Good luck Chuck" or "Employee of the Month"

Good luck Chuck is forgivable. Employee of the month is not.

YouTube - Evolution of Dance

This has to be one of the funniest acts I've ever seen. I had never even heard of the guy before this.

Re: Favorite Stand-up Comedian:

I actually liked employee of the month. There was some pretty good humor there... "Brand newish 2005 chevy mailbu" was pretty funny...

Forgivable? That was a funny movie.
Employee of the month had it's moments but I thought overall it was OK. Dane Cook is good actor, he's not great, but how many standup's are? He is in a small group of stand up comedians that became good actors.

I actually try to avoid ANYTHING with her in it. I find her extremely annoying. She is a human bobblehead!
She has quite a body, but the second she starts talking, I find her repulsive.

I think lots of stand up comedians are good actors. Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock (Sort of, he has his moments), Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby. If you're a good comedian I highly doubt the transition from comedian to actor is a very difficult thing.

I'm sure there are more, I'm just throwing names off the top of my head.

Chappelle huh? I think he's a terrible actor. Great comedian though.

Eddie Murphy is a stud actor, one of the best standups to ever act. Cosby was good as well. There is a list of good comedians to be good actors, but it's not as big as you may think. Think of the MASSIVE amount of stand up comedians are out there.
Saying the list is small is not cutting on anyone, I didn't say it was tiny, just small. I think I could come up with 20-30 if put on the spot all time. That's a small list if you ask me.

To me 20-30 is big considering how easy it is to crash and burn in Hollywood. lol I guess it's just my proportions are smaller than yours. Which is fair. I see where you're coming from.

Re: Favorite Stand-up Comedian:

Man thats a tough question. For me it changes day to day. Right now I'm going to have to go with

Mitch Hedberg - YouTube - Hedberg, Mitch - Just For Laughs: On The Edge - 02

Other favorites:
Daniel Tosh - YouTube - Daniel Tosh - Kobe Bryant & Basketball YouTube - Daniel Tosh - Nebraska YouTube - Daniel Tosh Parade
Dennis Leary - YouTube - Denis Leary - NyQuil
Pablo Francisco - YouTube - Pablo Francisco - all about preview guy
Mitch Fatel - YouTube - Fatel, Mitch - Just For Laughs: On the Edge

Jerry Seinfeld might be the best one of our generation mainly because he not only changes his routines frequently but the new routines he comes up with are still hilarious.
YouTube - October 31
YouTube - Seinfeld Rips Larry King
