My list of top comics

There's a lot of talk out there about the Great Dane Cook. Dane Cook is very neato, and almost as funny as the other comedians in my top five:

1) Yakov Smirnoff: One joke routine, one schmoke routine. I could listen to communism and vodka jokes all day.

2) Dame Edna: Is it a man, is it a woman? Does it matter? No, it’s hilarious. And her voice is definitely not annoying, it sounds like angels singing.

3) Sinbad: His transformation from stand-up to actor tops Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, and Robin Williams combined. Have you seen Necessary Roughness? His performance is a tour de force.

4) Carrot Top, the God of Prop Comics: There is an absolute correlation between the demise of "Call ATT" and Carrot Top's dismissal as their spokesman and it ain't the rise of cheap cell phones.

5) The only comic who can be rightly compared to the above? The aforementioned Dane Cook. He has a ways to go before reaching their pinnacle of mildly amusing comedy, but just look how fucking cool he is, I'm so happy for him.
