Just a Bit Outside prides itself on many things. Great radio. Good looks. Knowledge about everything from sports, to life skills, to holding court with the ladies. Somewhere on that list includes consistency. Every week includes a Top 5 Tuesday topic.

This week: The Top 5 Stand-up comedians of all-time.

5. Robin Williams – His Live on Broadway act kills me every time. It’s easy to forget how great he is on stage because of how poor the production on screen has become over the years.

4. Rodney Dangerfield – A sample of the great work of Rodney: “I found there was only one way to look thin, hang out with fat people.”

3. Jerry Seinfeld – This ranking reflects not only his stand up comedy work, but also his writing and opening shots of the television show. My entire sense of humor was built around this mans work.

2. Eddie Murphy – He might have gone a little overboard with the HIV jokes back in his youth, but the guy knew how to use language to capture a room like few others.

1. Richard Pryor- The man who introduced me to swearing. I honestly can’t help but laughing when people curse in my presence because the first real exposure I had to it was in comedy. It’s hard to argue with the guy that so many other comedians credit with being a huge influence on them, including Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock.
