All of them are hilarious and have tickled the funny bone of audiences worldwide and left them wanting for more!
George Carlin: This man is in a league of his own. He is a legend in his own right. He was an eternal pessimist and could bring out humour in the most oddest of everyday objects.
Richard Pryor: This man was one of the bravest men on stage. Nothing was off limits for him. He would discuss race relations and crack jokes on sensitive topics, which would leave the audience in splits. He was one of the best storytellers on stage.
Bill Hicks: He was one of the most innovative comedians ever to set foot on the stage. Usually dressed in black, he used to come down heavily on his audience for falling prey to consumer fetishism and wanted to create a world where love was in the forefront and not money.
Eddie Murphy: This man was one of the best in the business in his time. He was brilliant at impersonations and would ease them into his show in a fantastic manner.
Lenny Bruce: He was the man who pushed the envelope in stand up comedy. Controversies were a part of his daily routine. He simply refused to alter his jokes according to the laws and actually landed up in jail for this. He was a comedian who did not care two hoots about offending the masses and made it his forte.
Steve Martin: He is known as the renaissance man of stand up comedy and his shows were characterised by silly irreverent joke. This man had the unique talent of making his audience laugh with practically everything. His trademark was a final joke, which would bring the house down.
Robin Williams: This man was an icon. His impromptu acts on stage with raw energy were simply amazing. His issues with the drug cocaine did land him into trouble. However, where else could he get so much energy?
Rodney Dangerfield: He was a late starter but he did rise up the ladder fast. He had an onstage persona which made people look beyond his whacky suits and corny jokes. His delivery was the same throughout his life and he left people laughing wherever he went.
Louis C.K: He is probably the most honest stand up comedian. He never sugar-coats stuff and tells things he doesnâ€™t mean. He is a person who calls a spade a spade and makes everyone laugh at the end of it.
Danis Leary: He could have easily made it to the list of angriest men ever. This man was usually angry on stage and would nearly threaten to pounce on audiences. He gave his everything every minute of every show and that is what made the audience love him so much.
