    Here's a Top 10 list that is actually sort of a combination of personal favorites and ones whose talent I acknowledge:

    George Carlin
    Rodney Dangerfield
    Richard Pryor
    Jerry Seinfeld
    Lewis Black
    Dennis Miller
    Steven Wright
    Eddie Murphy
    Bob Hope
    Steve Martin

    George Carlin. He and I share a lot of worldview.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    Though I try to find the answer to all the questions they ask
    Though I know it's impossible to go living through the past

    Anybody ever seen Black on Broadway - Lewis Black? It's one of the best hours of standup I've seen. I have it on DVD and my wife and I have watched it numerous times.

    He was hysterically funny as a standup, but when he had his own show he would flop.
