    George Carlin by far, with Richard Pryor definitely second.

    Over a long career, Pryor or Carlin. Who reached the highest point? Eddie Murphy.

    We should defer to Howard on this question.

    He always seems to think his opinion is right.

    1. Carlin
    2. Pryor
    3. Murphy
    4. Hicks
    5. Chappelle
    6. Louis CK
    7. Bruce
    8. Dangerfield
    9. Kinison
    10. Burr

    You can't argue 1 and 2. Legendary.

    3-10 vary depending on your mood, taste, etc. Comedy is pretty subjective. People pay to see Carrot Top!

    Hedberg, too! His career cut way too short. Schimmel was great, died too soon.
