So who's gonna bash this first? C&L’s Top 100 Stand-up Comedians of All Time! By: Mark Groubert on Saturday, January 26th, 2008 at 2:00 PM - PST Researched and compiled by Mark Groubert This is it. Finally, the Official Crooks and Liars Top 100 Stand-up Comedians of all time. Let’s face it, whether you’re David Letterman or Oskar Schindler, everyone loves lists. While highly subjective, this list has been scientifically vetted by recently deceased members of the Friar’s Club for accuracy and fairness. There is no wiggle room. This is the official list. Anyone thinking otherwise is of course in error but can explain their massive feelings in the comments section. (Please remember to keep all comments to ten words or less so more can vent.) ]John Amato: There are videos hyperlinked to each name so that you can see a small performance of as many of the great stand-ups as we could find.
