Isn't Jim Carrey a stand-up comedian? And why isnt Chris Rock the 1st best comedian? He rules

Jim Carrey is number 39 ;)

as for why Chris Rock isn't #1... assuming you haven't seen stand up comedy sketches by the few comedians that are ranked higher than he is, how can you be so sure that they aren't better than him?

Hmmmm, I never even knew these comedians.... True... Here's another question... Why are you so smart and do you know which channel is the comedy channel? I know Comedy Central but is that the only channel that only has comedians?

Get er done...hahaha!!!! This is a very well thought out list. As for Jim Carrey being so far back, he isn't a 100 percent stand up comedian, actually he doesnt do to many stand ups, so thats why. Also, GALLAGHER IS 100!!!!! THAT IS GAY!!!!!
