In India, Kapil Sharma may be the newest king of Comedy, but making him wear the crown of being the best in business is a tad bit too much. Don’t you think? He may be really witty and has come along a long way to meet his success, but we think it’s too early to point him out as the best. Although he is not really someone whom we can compare to anyone and everyone, why don’t we take this opportunity and find out some legendary comedians whom one day perhaps even Kapil would want to be like? Here we go on our mission—

7. Lewis Black

An American author, social critic, playwright and actor, he is known for his antic comic style of emulating a mental breakdown or a mental rant that further includes his take on history, politics, cultural trends and other contemporary social phenomenon. And, as far as comedy shows are concerned, Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil is surely one of the funniest series we have seen….like, EVER.

6. Chris Rock

Now those of you who had been in their teens during the 90s would surely know him, and love him. Christopher Julius Rock III was an active cast member of Saturday Night Live, a TV program which marked his presence in the field of entertainment. Later on, he went on to do a lot of TV shows among which his HBO series were highly praised and admired by the critics.

5. Jim Carey

Well, he may not be the best of the lot, but we’re somewhat biased towards him. His antics and his eloquent style is enough to win him fans. But to say that he isn’t good at all will be sheer injustice towards him for he has, in his kitty, two Golden Globe Awards (and, he was nominated for two more). Like most other comedians in the list, James Eugene “Jim” Carey is also a man of many modes. Apart from being a great comedian, he is also a noted Hollywood actor and a producer. And, those of you who hasn’t yet seen him performing or acting, why don’t you watch The Mask?

4. David Cross


The man behind the HBO sketch comedy series, Mr. Show and the sitcom Arrested Development, David Cross is indeed a genial comedian who is loved across all the borders. This American writer, actor and stand-up comedian is also much celebrated for his role in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, a series which he not only acted in but also wrote, scripted and produced (executive).

3. Lenny Bruce

Lenny Bruce or Leonard Alfred Schneider was one of the best American satirist, social critic, and of course, a stand-up comedian back in the 1960s. He was known for his carefree style and his open criticism on various socio-political issues of the day. This range of subjects varied from politics and religion to sex and vulgarity! We love him for his style and attitude which was so different from most other comedians till date.

2. Bill Hicks

William Melvin Hicks, popularly known as Bill Hicks, was a man of many modes. He was a musician, satirist, social critic and, last but not the least, a stand-up comedian. Often bordering on dark comedy, he was famous for his critique and satirical takes on religion, politics, the then enormous growth of consumerism (and, hence, superficiality), etc. among many. However, it was his critique of the rupture between media and pop culture that made him different from the rest. Don’t you agree?

1. George Carlin

As always, we have tried to save the best for the last. Well, if you are into watching world comedy shows, then you cannot possibly we ignorant of George Carlin’s name. He is unarguably the best comedian around and has won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Now, that’s some feat, we say! He is known for his trademark dark comedy as also for his critique on politics, religion, psychology and everything else that is considered among the taboo subjects. Well, if you haven’t seen him performing, watch him NOW!
