I pretty much like all of them on that list. One of them is my second favorite actor - Jim Carey. Robin Williams is another one of my favorites.

I don't think that what you said about comedians is really true - there are some that I kinda like, but not really.

Richard Pryor- He has his moments
George Carlin- Great
John Cleese- One of the greatest comedians ever
Bill Murray-Great in Rushmore
Jim Carrey- GENIUS!
Eddie Murphy- He to has his moments like in NP, and NP2
Steve Martin- GENIUS!
Bill Cosby- /cosby "Its the jello..."/end cosby...I hate him
Chris Rock- Havn't liked much but have cracked a smile
Robin Williams- GENIUS!
Mike Myers- One of the best, the AP series were great, I like the fact that he plays so many characters in them.


[edit] I was watching a comedian on the TV the other day and she said this joke that I really liked

"I dont understand marathon runners, its just a bunch of anorexic people running for a burger. But you know all these runners get $400 worth of shoes, and shoe companies to sponser them, but every year you know what happens? Some guy from kenya who has never even owned a pair wins."

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.
