    My fave is Steven Wright. His "bit" is the tendency toward one-liners but delivered in a complete deadpan monotone.

    I was born by Caesarean section, but you really can't tell... except that when I leave my house, I always go out the window...

    It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it...

    You can't have everything...Where would you put it?

    I recently moved into a new apartment, and there was this switch on the wall that didn't do anything...so anytime I had nothing to do, I'd just flick that switch up and down...up and down...up and down....Then one day I got a letter from a woman in Germany...it just said, "Cut it out."

    I spilled spot remover on my dog and now he's gone.

    Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.

    I saw a man with a wooden leg, and a real foot.

    If you can't hear me, it's because I'm in parentheses.

    I installed a skylight in my apartment.... The people who live above me are furious!

    What's another word for thesaurus?

    I just bought a microwave fireplace... You can spend an evening in front of it in only eight minutes...

    My friend has a baby. I'm writing down all the noises he makes so later I can ask him what he meant.

    I went to a general store, but they wouldn't let me buy anything specific.

    Oh! Billy Connolly! I LOVE him! Speaking of international comedians, who is that guy who does the schtick in drag and talks about world politics and history? His name is on the tip of my tongue...shoot! He's so cute (even in drag I think he's hot!) and his comedy is so...high-brow and intelligent. He's smack-on funny. Darn it. I can't remember his name.

    His name is Eddie Izzard and I agree- FUNNY

    Love Love Love Margaret Cho! Would love to see her in person. Also Robin Williams, did anyone see him on HBO? I mean, how many bottles of water did that man drink? whew. Also, Jeff Foxworthy, Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. Hysterical!

    Love Cho, Goldberg, Williams, Tomlin, and Foxworthy too.

    I may seem ancient but Bill Cosby when he did stand up with his "Going to the dentist" act and the Smothers Brothers.
    It's the look on Tommys face when his brother little Dickie Smothers (Moma always liked him best) sets him up.
    Last time I saw the two seniors pull it off so well on TV Dickie said, You'r acting stupid."
    Tommy: "That's my job."

    In 1964 I first saw them in a club. They sang
    "When John Henry was a little baby
    Sitting on his Daddys knee
    His Daddy picked him up and put him on the floor
    Said, "That baby done wet on me."

    Sorry I'm laughing with the memory.
    PS: They annoy my husband.

    I don't know if I have a favorite commedian...Though, I watched Queens of Comedy last night for the fourth or fifth time, and those chicks crack me up.

    Hey Vettech Thanks for the Stephen Wright stuff...I needed the laugh today. I really love his 'deadpan' monlogues!

    George Carlin and Ray Romano are great!

    Bill Cosby the one on HBO when he talks about parenthood, especially the birth "Push em' out, shove em' out, way out!" I think of this at work sometimes, just cracks me up.

    Also love Dennis Leary, sick and sarcastic, cute too!

    Too many to count or even list. I grew up watching nothing but comedies with my family. Romantic comedy, Stand up comedy, Sit Comedy (tv shows), Action comedy, Goofball comedy movies, you name it we watched it. I was a way of life. And when a network actually came out with nothing but comedy, I WAS IN HEAVAN!

    .....But I'm no comedian myself....

    Currently, I'm into watching the Crank Yankers on Comedy Central. But I like any comedy you give me!

    Omg, I can't believe I forgot Dennis Leary, I absolutely loved that movie " The Ref"! I laugh so hard everytime I see it especially everytime someone mentions the cat pee! One of the all-time funniest movies ever, thanks for the reminder acuteobrn.
