Rolling Stone just published their 50 Best Stand Up Comedians of All-Time list, and though it’s definitely worth checking out, I can’t say I agree with it—for two major reasons. One is that they have Eddie Murphy at #25, which is waaaaaay too low. Dude is Top 5 D.O.A. if not the G.O.A.T. in my book. The other is Sebastian Maniscalco is not on the list, and I know he’s kind of a sleeper and not as famous (yet) as most of the others that made the cut, but I just saw him with my wife live the other night at The Paramount in Huntington, and it strongly confirmed that he’s one of the all-time greats. So fucking funny, and anyone who follows stand-up comedy knows he’s beasting right now. Just ask Jerry Seinfeld.
Anyway, here’s the list, complete with video clips and all. Definitely a great read/watch, regardless of your opinion on the order or selections. Respect to Rolling Stone, always.
