What's your flavor of comedy?

After watching some clips on the Aristocrats (don't google it if you're easily offended) and some Jon Stewart, I wanna know what kind of comedy and/or comedians do you guys like (preferably stand up)?

I like The Original Kings of Comedy, Latin Kings of Comedy, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy's earlier stuff like Delirious and Raw, Martin Lawrence, etc.

Post clips.

NSFW!!!
Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, D.L. Hughley (2, 3), Bernie Mac (second half is a good watch), The Three Amigos (1, 2, 3), Martin Lawrence, George Lopez (2, 3).

    I like all kinds of comedy, but mainly satirical and crude comedy are the funniest. Comedy Central is my favorite tv station.

    I like a lot of things. George Carlin is probably my favorite but I also like Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Bob Saget, Gabriel Iglesias, and some of Carlos Mencia's stuff.

    George Carlin is a sick person, but I do find some of his content funny. Other stuff it seems like he tries too hard. It just doesn't come off as funny to me.

    I like pretty much all forms of comedy. Since I have a very good sense of humor I can laugh at anything.

    I tend to like crude, straight forward stuff....mainly stuff that you don't really have to think about. I mean don't get me wrong, I like "intelligent" comedy, but when I need a good laugh I don't want to have to take a second to think about what the guy said, and then decide whether or not its funny.

    I like chris rock, jim gaffigan, dane cook, some of pablo fancisco's stuff, Demetri Martin, and some others.

    I cant stand carlos mencia, he tries wayyyy to hard. None of his material is funny. I dont know how he got his own tv show.

    If Mencia didn't try to tell the same joke every time (and it wasn't just racist crap) I might find him amusing.

    I like Carlin, Robin Williams, and even Bill Murray's kind of comedy can crack my stolid face into a smile.

    The Aristocrats made me find respect for Gilbert Gottfried...somehow:eek:

    Meh, I don't really think mencia's racist per say. But then again I don't think there's anything wrong with a good laugh as long as it isn't focused towards one group. He does a pretty good job at making fun of everyone equally. Hell, he even makes a lot of jokes about Mexicans. There's nothing so dangerous that it can't be talked about, or hell, even laughed at.
