That is a real hard question. Then again, asking my favorite anything is hard enough.

She never really did straight on stand up, but I will have to say carol burnett. Her monologues kind of count as stand up right? Her timing and adaptability are flawless

Christopher Titus hands down! He is so funny! Jeff dunham is a close second though!

Shawn says:

I look a LOT like Christopher Titus, so Im going to say him. He always cracks me up, and I am really bummed I did not get to see him when he came to town a few weeks back. My girlfriend and I are big on theater, comedy, standup and improv! This would be a great date night for us! Please pick me to win the tickets!

Sounds like fun…Wanda Sykes gets me laughing!

Ron says:

There are so many, Totie, yes, oh I remember her from my childhood. Moms, absolutely!
Lucy, Wanda, Lily, Kathy Griffin. Margaret Cho. I had the pleasure to meet Margaret at the Tower Theatre in 2001. She was kind enough to do a meet & greet before the showing of her film, “I’m the One That I Want”. I asked her to autograph my copy of the movie “It’s My Party”, she did and told me a story about the man who made the movie. She was so kind and is so so funny. Saw her at the Gay Games in Chicago. She is the best!!

Gina says:

I love any comedians that can make me laugh.

Bernice Kao says:

My favorite comedians are Johnny Carson and David Letterman. For female ethnic comedian, I like Margaret Cho. Of course no one can top Lucy or Carol (Brunette) in my book.

Judith Palmer says:

This sounds like it would be a fun night. I do not get out that often for things like this.
