Least Funny Stand-Up Comics

- Jimmy Kimmel-There's no denying that Kimmel is funny but his is an avuncular or fraternal humor. He's the buddy that's always cracking you up. It's a humor that was well suited to his partnerships with Ben Stein and Adam Corolla but hardly justifies a coveted position on late-night television. It doesn't justify his boning the sexiest and funniest comedian ever...Shecky Green. (ba-dum-BUMP)
- Sam Kinison-I don't know if the insane amount of respect he gets from the rest of the comic world is the phony sort reserved for the dead or if he was nearly completing a cure for cancer before taking a header through the windshield of his Trans Am. Surely it couldn't be for his material. Unlike the Diceman, this loud-mouthed Baptist coke-fiend spewed REAL misogyny.
- Carlos Mencia-I don't care about the accusations of joke theft. As far as I'm concerned humor is part of a communal collective to be used and reused by all. He just doesn't use it well. He seems to think that refering to Mexicans as Beaners is cutting-edge racial commentary. Seriously though, if anyone's going to complain about his act being stolen...where the hell is Paul Rodriguez?
- Lenny Bruce-Every list of great comics has got him but has anybody really heard him? Really? He's profane and daring and experimental, he's the embodiment of 50's counterculture, he opened the doors entered by George Carlin, Richard Pryor and the like, but does he make you laugh?
