My favorites would definitely be Bill Hicks, died way too young and was a comedic genius. Fry & Laurie, Rowan Atkinson in most anything that isn't Mr Bean (especially Blackadder), Monty Python (especially Holy Grail), and Lenny Bruce.

I've got several.
Jimmy Car, Tim Minchin, Billy Conoly (oh god that man can make me laugh), George Carlin and Mitch Hedberg.

There are a few others, but those guys are just awesome. Especially the last three.

Carlin is without a doubt the king of Cerebral comedy!

Another comedian that is piss your pants funny is Buddy Hacket!  His bit about sending his son with an acne problem to Vegas is hilarious!!

Eddie Murphy, closely followed by Steve Martin, Sean Lock, Simon Evans and Miles Jupp. The latter two are not-so-well-known British comedians but I LOVE their style.

I'd have to go with Lee Evans, Billy Connolly or Reginald D. Hunter. They're pretty much equal favourites in my book xD

I'd like to add Anna Russell to my list.  If you can find her discussion on writing your own Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, I challenge you to keep a straight face.  Bonus points for doing so if you've seen more than one G&S operetta in your life.

How many points do I lose if not only have I never heard of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, but I have no idea what an operetta is?   :-[

That just puts you at base level.  It gets harder to not laugh at the routine if you're more familiar with G&S.  It's like getting minuses to save against fire spells if you're an ice elemental.

Patrice O'Neal, Kevin Hart and Louis CK. None of these are particularly safe for work, especially the Kevin Hart bit.

No one has been able to top George Carlin for me, though I also really like Dylan Moran.

Those are two names that I was unfamiliar with.  Had to google them.  :-)

I have to add Kathy Griffin. She's irreverent and so politically incorrect you can't help but laugh.

Craig Ferguson is also worth mentioning, even though he's technically more of a host than a comedian. He's just so darn funny and energetic.

Billy Crystal has a knack for excellent timing and his dry wit never fails to entertain.

I'll have to look up everyone's list and check those other comedians, too!
