Thank you Cadillac Man. Groucho Marx is the funniest man ever. There is not even a close second.

if you're talking about stand-up comedians, richard pryor, carlin, hope, steven wright, tim allen, rita rudner, bill cosby

if you're talking about actors, chevy chase, tom hanks, steve smith (as red green), patrick mckenna (as harold green), robin williams, owen wilson, chris tucker, leslie nielsen, the whole sctv crew

all creatures great and small, red green and scrubs are the only tv shows that ever made me laugh out loud. not even the greatest tv series ever made in the usa, m.a.s.h., did that.

I have come to the conclusion that if people do not agree that Groucho Marx is the funniest man ever, they either have zero sense of humor or they are just unfamiliar with him. Go watch "Duck Soup" and get back to me.

Thank you Montreal Guy. As you and I have been the only ones to nominate Groucho, I can only assume that nobody else has heard or seen him or they did not understand what they heard. The latter is a strong possibility.

Tough question. Some of my faves... Jimmy Carr, Dara O'Briain, Eddie Izzard, Peter Kay, Old Eddie Murphy, Steve Carell, Ricky Jervais, Seinfeld and Larry David. Man, it's too hard to just choose one!

Robin Williams is a good choice
Jerry Clower was a different kinda comedy, but that cajun was hilarious.

Sam Kinneson (sp) is a hoot, old Richard Pryor and lest you all forget the Blue Collar boys!

Ron White will leave you peeing your pants and Larry the Cable Guy...classic.

Tim Conway and Harvey Korman in any of the Carol Burnett shows when they crack each other up....priceless!

Steven Wright...hilarious

I fear that you forgot a few......How about Jerry Lewis, Abbott & Costello, Howie Mandell, and one of my favorites...Ron White.

And let us not forget that many of our talk show hosts started out on the stand-up curcuit....Ellen Degenirus (spelling?) Jay Leno, etc.

I have to say that one of my all time favorites is Whoopie Goldberg. I love her sensible sarcasm!

George Carlin and Richard Pryor

Worst = Dane Cook (that's right, I said it!)

Dane Cook's Disease, often referred to as "DCD," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the central nervous system. Those afflicted typically suffer from uncontrollable muscle spasms, wildly exaggerated movements, and the need to relay long-winded stories with no punch line, yet still expect to receive a hearty laugh.

now that's comedy

I am not sure its possible to annoit a "funniest person of all time"
so much of humor is of the time of its popularity..
Voltaire ,Twain , and Swift certainly cannot be ignored if "all time" has any connection to reality.. probably we should block off some arbitrary period ..say ten years and consider the best of that time frame .. say a best of the fifties,sixties etc. .
I know its tough to compare such an anecdotal subject but it is fun to see who tickles the other monkeys as much as our own "top banana"..

IMO - there are too many to say "the" funniest person.............

However, my list would include:

Robin Williams
George Carlin
Dane Cook (every watched his "Brain Ninja" routine?)
Howie Mandel (in his early years)
Paul Lynde
Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis (together as a team)
Carol Burnett & Friends
