    good list. I was kinda hoping Emo Phillips wouldn't show up there.

    And he didn't. Whew.

    How Rosie O'Donnell didn't end up in the top 5 is beyond me

    They should have listed Paula Poundstone 12 times.

    Sinbad is by no means great, but he definitely deserved to be listed behind Paula Poundstone and Kathy Griffin.

    I don't think Menica belongs on there.
    If they want an unfunny Hispanic comedian they should have gone with Paul Rodriguez or George Lopez.

    In an upset, Carrot Top isn't on the list. And did Louie Anderson bogart the caption writer's coke or something? Man, that text stomped the line between cutely caustic and unhumorously rude.

    No Pauly Shore? WTF

    I'm calling bullshit on Titus, Cho and Poundstone.

    Second the notion on Mencia. I like Mencia. His bit on Disneyland and kicking the retarded guy in the chest his hilarious... as is doing the retard impersonation in front of a group of handicapped people. All great stuff.

    George Lopez is nothing but him saying Meta (or whatever the hell it is) and cavron (or whatever the hell it is) in that annoying Mexican grandmother voice. And that's all it is.

    Any list without Carrot Top is a joke.

    And did the list end in 1989 or something? What, exactly, have Paula Poundstone, Margaret Cho, Sandra Bernhard, Sinbad and Gallagher done in the past 15 years? Anything?

    If nothing else, make the list containing people whose careers didn't end before the first Gulf War. Pretty fucking pathetic list.

    Mencia sucks. And I will not argue this.

    I'll give them credit for one thing: That list made me laugh more than any of those comedians ever have.

    100 percent wrong about Mencia. And I won't argue this. :)

    I don't think Mencia's great, but he's not one of the 12 worst of all time.
    Poundstone, Gallagher, Sinbad, Louie Anderson — I agree all the way.
    Mencia's not in their class. He's at least occassionally funny.
