Favourite comedian?

I only listed my favorite comedian, so it makes sense that I wouldn't mention him. You listed your top 9 and didn't include Robin Williams, so shame on YOU.
Hmmm, see I don't really find Robin Williams that funny, though. I think he's a phenomenal actor, but as a stand up comic, he's pretty much a hack. He's notorious for stealing other people's bits.

I get that stand up comedy is weird world. I mean, if you threw 10 comics together in a room and asked them write up new material, chances are that 7 outta 10 will have similar material. But with Robin Williams, that's not the case. He literally whips out his check book every time he "borrows" from another comic. I dunno, I just sorta expect better from him.

Although, with that being said, I will admit that I liked Weapons of Self Destruction.

Although I will say that you made me try to think of comedians that nobody else listed, and Bill Cosby at least deserves a mention.
I can't believe I forgot Bill Cosby. I also forgot to mention Patton Oswalt and Lenny Bruce.

Jim Carrey is my favourite comedy actor, as well as my favourite actor in general. However, if we're talking stand up then I like Alan Carr and Lee Evans the best.

Jim Carrey has been my favorite since his debut in The Mask. What really made me like him more was his cartoonish portrayal of that mean green Dr. Seuss character:

THE GRINCH!!!!!!
