Robin Williams is great.

One that sticks out in my mind is Alex Reymundo. I've only seen one of his routines, but it was absolutely hilarious.

I didn't want to post links to youtube because there's some pretty dirty language, but look him up if you have a minute.

Dane Cook? Seriously? :-?

You shouldn't be talking you said Robin Williams, his bits are very similar to vintage Howie Mandel  :-/

What is more surprising than the Dane Cook responses to me is the Jeff Dunham ones :o You guys really think he's good? He would be on my list of worst comedians   :P

For me in no order it's Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Lenny Bruce. Oh and I like Sam Kinison's nemesis ;)

Robin Williams started well before Howie Mandel so it would seem that Mandel would be copying Williams if anyone was plagiarizing.  I watched both of these guys in their heyday and Robin Williams was one of the best.  Howie was an also-ran.  I don't see the comparison though Robin isn't as funny now as he was then.  It was all fresh then.   Anyway, everyone has an opinion, including me.

Jonathan Winters

Robin Williams

Dave Chapelle

Red Skelton

Wanda Sykes

I have seen some smaller-time comedians who would rival any of the best though I can't remember their names.  Sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time.

Hey Fellas: Comedians frequently pay homage to those that came before them, much like musicians. If I am correct they even call parts of thier style RIFFS, if you ever saw Richard Pryor, you could see the part of Red Foxx that was in him,There is nothing wrong with adding new ideas onto older style. It is almost a natural progression of things.

Wasn't saying that Williams copied his act, I was just comparing him to an 80s comedian that has is similar. Also it is customary to copy a good act so do not know why you took it that way ;)

Also think about Dunham's jokes, all just stereotypes. If I wanted to see stereotype comedy, I would see the guy who basically invented it. Andrew Clay ;)
