Lets not forget, the man himself, Robin Williams



Or not forget one of the greatest of all time, Richard Pryor.



My two favorites as well.   ;D

 Ok...I hate to admit it...On TV and in movies he is very hit and miss, but I saw Carrot Top live in Va last year and the show was hilarious.

I agree with you. His stand-up in halarious. Of course he should be banned from TV because of all of those crappy commercials.

I agree, I'm not much of a Sandler fan, I think he is medicore funny at his best (from what I've seen).

I like Billy Connoly, but I thought his Ken Bigley joke was unfair.

Amen to that.  :D

I know he's not funny to everyone... but he's funny to me.  
There's quite a few comedians in this thread who I don't think are funny at all, so I guess "yanks" don't laugh at just "anything".  But at least I recognize that other people can think they're funny and not lump everyone from one country into the same category of being easily amused.

he's very funny in his movies, but i've only seen a video of his stand up and he didn't seem funny at all.
still don't understand american humour though.you make it too easy for them.

I couldn't really tell you why I think Adam Sandler is funny. While I can appreciate humor that has a more 'intellectual' basis to it, Adam makes me laugh at absolutely stupid things. Sort of like the Three Stooges, but for some reason, it's more respectable to like them.

I have most of Adam's CDs, and I even surprise myself at how stupid some of those tracks are, and yet I still find myself cracking up at them.  I think everytime I bring up liking Adam Sandler, I hear it from someone. And I always say the same thing... people have different senses of humor. It's an individual thing that makes us... well... individuals.  :D

I know Gant said Lee Evans. I used to like him when I was about 10, but recently I found him to be not that funny, but I'm not sure if that's to over watching it.



If he does another tour, and has some new material, maybe I love him like I once did.

No, I believe Matt has said he thinks Adam Sandler is funny.  I personally think he's funny, too,

Well, that's what I did......watched all of his movies and that's how I decided he was funny.  His movies have a very sweet charm about them as well.  :)

Why should he change?  What he's doing now is working for him AND some of the rest of us.

You ever seen Punch Drunk Love, vik? It's as far from Adam Sandler as you can possibly get. And he gives probably the best performance of his career.

How can Adam Sandler get as far away from Adam Sandler as possible? ???

 ;)

Hehe, this reminds me of something: I remember when The Truman Show came out and I heard someone say it wasn't good because it wasn't a "Jim Carrey movie."

Heh heh, yeah... I meant that it's not the typical Sandler performance we're all so used to seeing in his movies. He actually tried to be differant and it worked. It wasn't him making poop and pee jokes and yelling at people with a some crazy accent to be funny. He completely surprised me with the performance and it's a shame he hasn't done any more films like this.

Same thing here. Jim Carrey was differant in The Truman Show. He still had some of the Carrey we're used to in it but there was just something else there that was new and refreshing to see. Much like his performances in Man on the Moon or The Majestic. He can do it but it just seems his die hard fans can't get past the slap stick sillyness of Carrey which is unfortunate.

I don't like Jim Carrey's comedy at all, but I do like some of his movies that aren't comedies: The Truman Show and Man on the Moon were both terrific.

If you don't like him, you don't like him. Why bother? If you don't like Happy Gilmore, then you probably wouldn't like any of his other comedies.

I don't think that Punch Drunk Love is a really good movie. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, if they were a fan of his, or if they weren't. The only thing you can say about it is that it's different.
