My vote goes to Carrot Top.



This should be an interesting conversation. Please provide clips to support your nomination.

One thing you can say about Mr. Top, like Henny Youngman, the King of the One-Liners, Mr. Top's jokes don't take a lot of time from build up to punchline.

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

Jerry Clower. Excellent story teller, clean jokes based on where and how he grew up. He never intended to be a comedian, he was in sales and backed into show business.

Too many great comedians. Two off the top are Carlin and Pryor.

My Dad met Mr Clower when he was a traveling Salesman for Mississippi Chemical. He sold Fertilizer.

I'm a big fan of Henny Youngman, "King of the One-Liners."

Go to 12:58 of this Don RIckles roast and feast your funny bone. It's classic Youngman:
