Rolling Stone Magazine put out their list of the 50 greatest stand up comedians of all time. Every time they do a list I rush to read it. I don't do that because I trust that they got it right, oh no. I do it because I know they got it wrong. They really butchered this one. Check out their list, "50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time"

The first thing that jumps out at me is who is on the list. One name in particular makes me want to throw my computer across the room, and that name is Amy Schumer. She is terrible and has been caught stealing famous bits from other comedians. Then, there are the names that are not on the list like:

  • Andrew Dice Clay
  • Lewis Black
  • Dane Cook
  • Pat Cooper
  • Jon Stewart
  • Gilbert Gottfried

They were not even on the list, but the incomparable Tig Notaro makes the list. Who in the hell is that?

Here would be my top 10 in no particular order:

  • Jerry Seinfeld
  • Eddie Murphy
  • Richard Pryor
  • Bill Cosby
  • Bill Burr
  • Patrice O'Neal
  • Joan Rivers
  • Chris Rock
  • Dave Chappelle
  • Louis C.K.

You stink, Rolling Stone, take a shower.
