    heard howard mention Steve Martin and the attached clip, in my book for me, it's Steve Martin. I grew up as a kid with him he was always funny, smart comedy, and relevant. I bet the guy truly is a genius

    Who you think best comedian of all time is

    It seems to me even the greats never stay funny for very long. Some explode onto the scene and make a powerful first impression but then they fade (Kinison, Rock, Dice.)

    Carlin for overall. Best standup routine of all time though is of course, Eddie Murphy's Delirious.
