Shouldn't this be a poll? Well there are only a few people that can even be considered in the running:

Bill Cosby (good clean wholesome family fun...and Jello)
Richard Pryor (the anti-Cosby)
Eddie Murphy (Richard Pryor, the next generation)
Chris Rock (Eddie Murphy, the nexter generation)
Dave Chappelle (I'm Rick James bitch)

Now those first three haven't done much (I am ignoring most of Eddie Murphy's movies for the past ten years) for a long long time, but I'm still laughing at their classic shit. So greatest of all times (at this point) I'd prolly have to say Pryor, even though I haven't heard as much of his shit compared to the others. However, funniest one today I think I'd have to go with Chappelle.

edit: The poll went up while I was making this post. Too lazy to edit the post now, so just read it bitch

No one said white people aren't funny, but it's a different kind of funny. Most white comics I've known tend to either focus on (if anything at all) politics, or self-deprecating humor, among many other things, whereas most black comics tend to focus on racial and social class humor. But yeah, there's plenty of funny white people (I'm a fan of Lewis Black in particular), though I'm pretty sure Mel Brooks is Jewish.

I was, of course, using sarcasm as a comedic tool.

I know, but I did want to make that clear for everyone anyway. You never know who can take a racial issue the wrong way, even when it's all in good fun, and I'd hate to have to close this thread because it turned racial.

True, You are a wise man. :thumbsup: I'll have to start using <Sarcasm> tags as it is an exceptionally difficult form of humor to get across in the written format.
