    Chris Rock

    Best of his generation. Hard to believe people thought he was untalented in the early 90's.

    Richard Pryor

    Some may think this is too low, but if you look at the entire post 1980 body of work this is correct.

    George Carlin

    Would have EASILY been #1 if he stopped doing stand up the 1990s.

    Eddie Murphy

    "Delirious" and "Raw" are arguably the #1 and #2 funniest comedy specials of all time and he did it in a 3 year span. He also knew when to stop.
