    My explanation: There is no ONE comedian that is the best. There is only one of the best.

    It depends on the routine and the mood I'm in.

    Jon Stewart is one of the funniest. So is Ellen. So is TINA FEY(though she's not a standup comedian). So is SARAH SILVERMAN. So is Carol Burnett. Stephen Colbert hands down one of the most gifted comedians these days. David Letterman is still one of the best....a natural, as they say. And let's not forget Roseanne Barr. She's not funny, anymore. But she started as a standup and was hysterical in those days. So was JOAN RIVERS. Some of you may be too young to remember some of these guys in their early days.

    It's because of Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett and others that it's possible for an Ellen or Tina or Sarah to exist.

    Some of the other "one of the best" have passed on: George Carlin, Robin Williams.
    I based that upon, nationwide show, day in day out, day after day.
    A truly funny lady.

Still she's a great person, and wonderful comedian, and did a really outstanding job hosting the Oscars... unlike too many others, who've laid bowling-ball sized eggs in their Oscar hosting efforts!
    Kathleen Madigan and Ron White are my two faves. Kathleen slays me.

    In what universe is Dennis Miller funnier than Groucho Marx or Jack Benny? Those lists are total bull****.

    She is great. I just wish she stood on the stage more often, although I can admit her current and much more profitable venture can be quite enjoyable from time to time.

    I'd agree, but I find the whole idea of ranking the greats to be rather pointless. After we come to an agreement that there's maybe a couple hundred comedians from the past century that were the best, what metrics do we really use to say said comedian in slot #52 is better than comedian in slot #53? They are all too varied in their subjects, delivery, and innovations.

    At that point we should just pop in their record or video special and enjoy.

    I already admitted it wasn't a the most accurate of lists.
    TBH I didn't read through them all I just looked for where Ellen was and noted that somehow Zach ended up above John.
    Of course these things are always subjective and the flavour de jour always ranks up much higher than they should, 10 years from now when they do it again those people will drop down closer to where they belong.
